Cosmetic Procedures Are Not Just For Women!
Following testosterone replacement, many men with low testosterone report improved energy levels, sex drive and mood. Testosterone maintains men’s bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, sperm production, facial and body hair, sex drive and also red blood cell production.
A low testosterone level by itself doesn’t need treatment, as levels do naturally decline in men as they age (around 1% a year from around age 30). Only men with symptoms of low testosterone and blood levels that confirm a medical condition as the cause of symptoms should consider testosterone replacement. Talking with your doctor is the only way to know if testosterone therapy is right for you.
Certain conditions can also lead to an abnormally low testosterone level. Symptoms of low testosterone include:
- Low sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Fatigue and poor energy level
- Decreased muscle mass
- Body and facial hair loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Low sense of well-being
There are possible side effects of testosterone replacement therapy, including skin irritation and sleep apnea, which Dr Kathryn will discuss with you prior to going ahead with treatment.
During your initial consultation at Real You, Dr Kathryn will establish whether testosterone replacement therapy is the right option for you.
