Testosterone is the male hormone. Low T, or low testosterone, is a common problem. As men get older, they may experience a slow decline in blood testosterone levels. This condition is called andropause, though some people refer to it as men-o-pause.
Symptoms of low T include:
- Diminished libido
- Problems achieving or maintaining erections
- Cognitive disturbance, ie difficulty with concentration
- Weight gain or difficulty with weight loss
- Severe cases: bone loss and pathologic bone fractures
- Male Hormone Testing
- Testosterone replacement therapy
- Safe and effective male hormone replacement therapy
Millions of men suffer from low T. Fortunately treatment options exist.
1: Testopel pellets. One injection last at least 3 months. High levels achieved and levels remain stable. Disadvantage: some men complain of soreness and mild bruising at the insertion site. This problems tends to occur more often in very thin men and rarely at all in men with a bit more abdominal fat or "love handles."
2: AVEED: Testosterone 10 week injection therapy center
3: T cypionate injections. The advantages are rapid response ad very high levels achieved. The disadvantages are the levels are sustained for a week or so, not more, then levels crash. In my view men should never really start down this path. Plus this method of treatment carries withit some addiction potential to the very high levels of T that can be attained. For these reasons, I tend to stay away from initiating T injection therapy.
4: Skin gels. Advantages are ease of use, good levels, and minimal side effects. Disadvantages are daily application, transference to others. Still good approach. There is actually a newer gel that men apply to their under-arms. This minimizes transerence risk and men seem to like it.
5: Skin patch. Advantages are no transference, good levels, and ease of use. Disadvantages are rashes at application site. Not much used anymore.
