When Should I Consider Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
When A Hormone Imbalance is Affecting Your Life…
All genders require a balance of estrogen and testosterone. While the type of balance required for optimum health varies between genders, a drop in testosterone can trigger a number of problems. This is certainly true for men. In many cases, testosterone replacement therapy is the only way to restore the balance and begin to feel good again. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms are present, it pays to have your testosterone levels checked and undergo therapy if those levels are too low.
You may begin to notice that some of your physical attributes change. Building and maintaining muscle mass becomes more difficult. Working out seems to leave you tired without providing the usual rush of good feelings.
Instead of writing off these symptoms as typical signs of aging, it could be that your body’s ability to produce testosterone has been compromised. With testosterone replacement therapy, you restore what the body is lacking and begin to reverse those physical changes.
Low testosterone can leave you feeling more irritable and easy to anger. Little things that used to never bother you are suddenly big deals. At times, you feel as if you are losing control of your emotions.
The good news is that if low testosterone is present, undergoing testosterone replacement therapy
will restore your emotional balance. Once again, you will be able to handle stress, not become undone by little things, and in general have what it takes to deal with whatever life tosses your way.
Problems with Sleep
Did you know that a hormonal imbalance will affect your sleep patterns? Your body and mind need sleep in order to function properly. A lack of sleep doesn’t just leave you feeling tired; it also increases the odds of developing quite a few health problems. With testosterone replacement therapy, you’ll feel more rested and also have a lower risk of developing heart and respiratory issues.
Changes in Sexual Desire and Function
One of the most commonly-cited effects of low testosterone is a change in your desire for intimacy and the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. The good news is that testosterone replacement therapy can help to restore the desire for intimacy and also make it possible to participate fully in that intimacy.
General Feeling of Fatigue or Lethargy
Even if you are not having sleep issues, low testosterone leaves you feeling fatigued. That, in turn, can make it difficult to even try to get out and do anything. Left unchecked, that lethargy will increase the odds of developing depression. When you choose to undergo testosterone replacement therapy, your energy level will increase and it will be easy to do whatever you like without feeling worn out.
