Fatigued, low sex drive, depressed—does this sound familiar?
The culprit could be low testosterone—and "low T" is treatable.
Testosterone is a steroid hormone secreted in males, as well as females (but in smaller amounts). Though nicknamed the "sex hormone," testosterone is essential for health and the prevention of osteoporosis. Testosterone is also responsible for increased muscle mass, strength, and lean body weight.
Low testosterone is a common condition affecting many men and women. Symptoms include decreased energy and strength, lost muscle mass, depression, mood changes, hair loss, and decreased sexual libido. Low levels are also responsible for hypertension, diabetes, anemia, and coronary artery disease. Gradual decrease in testosterone levels usually begins around age 30 in men.
A simple blood test will determine your testosterone level. Testosterone replacement therapy for low T is administered by monthly injections.
Once replacement therapy begins, results could be achieved in as soon as one week. Sexual libido is one of the first signs of testosterone increase. Other noticeable signs include increased mental acuity, energy, and muscle definition.
