Low Testosterone (Low T) Therapy
What is Andropause?
Andropause, or male menopause (“man-opause”) is the name given to the gradual drop in testosterone that typically affects men between the ages of 40 and 55 but may be seen as early as 25. Low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, affects an estimated 13 million men in the U.S.
This decline in male hormones is a natural phenomenon; no man can avoid it. Due to lifestyle factors including stress, poor diet, a lack of physical activity and poor sleep habits, more men under 40 are affected by low testosterone levels.
When a man’s testosterone levels are low, he may experience the following symptoms:
- Decreased muscle and strength
- Declining ability to concentrate
- Lack of energy
- Low libido
- Poor sleep
- Weak erections
If you experience one or more of the above symptoms, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
