If your man is getting close to the age of 50 and just doesn’t seem to be himself, low testosterone levels could be the culprit. Hormone production naturally declines as you age and it can start to affect physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
This is very normal, and 40% of men over the age of 45 have low testosterone.
Low testosterone levels can manifest itself in all sorts of ways. Our team at Atlas Health Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, highlights some signals you should watch for when you suspect that there’s a hormone imbalance, and offer some helpful suggestions for ways to treat it.
While declining testosterone levels can look different for a variety of men, these are some common symptoms that low testosterone can bring about:
Lower levels of testosterone can lead to other health conditions like osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
If you suspect that your man is suffering from low testosterone, it’s important to encourage him to seek help. His quality of life and your relationship will be much improved with a catered treatment plan that’s just right for him.
The first step is to properly diagnose low testosterone through blood testing to see where his hormone levels are and then proceed from there.
If his hormone levels are low enough to elicit a need for treatment, our team at Atlas Health Institute offers supplemental testosterone therapy as a viable solution for low hormone production. We offer two different methods for this specific hormone replacement therapy: injections and pellet therapy.
This treatment option works by delivering testosterone via an injection straight into your man’s muscle tissue. If he decides to go this route, he’ll need to come in every couple of weeks for routine injections.
Pellet therapy works by having a small pellet – the size of a grain of rice – inserted just below the surface of your man’s skin. The pellets dissolve on their own and provide a steady flow of hormones. This treatment requires fewer repeat visits to insert new pellets.
His provider can go over the advantages and disadvantages of each in order to help him decide which will work best for his specific symptoms.
While there might be a few immediate results from the therapy, expect some time to pass before you start to see some noticeable changes.
