Diagnosing a problem with your testosterone levels can be tricky. In fact, one of the greatest difficulties is the fact that, like any medical condition, symptoms can vary widely from person to person. Maybe you think you’re suffering from low testosterone, and if so, it’s more common than you might think.
The first step towards recovery is talking with your medical professional and sharing your symptoms. While the symptoms are different for everybody, there are a few common side-effects that can apply to everyone, men and women included. A few of them are:
- Decreased sex drive
- Reduced energy or feelings of vitality
- Loss of endurance or strength
- Losing height
- Depression and a feeling of not enjoying life the way you used to
- Feelings of irritability
- Falling asleep after dinner or oversleeping
- Feeling less productive at work
So if you’re experiencing some or many of these symptoms, does that mean you should undergo testosterone replacement therapy? Perhaps. You’ll want to initially contact your physician, or contact us for a free consultation. We’ll check your symptoms, then perform a blood test to determine not just your testosterone levels, but your hormone levels in general to determine if they’re out of balance. If it turns out you have testosterone levels below normal ranges, or if the hormones are imbalanced, you might be a good candidate for treatment.
Remember that low testosterone is a condition that’s highly treatable and manageable. You can get your life back, and we’re happy to help. Contact us today with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
