WHAT IS LOW TESTOSTERONE?
Low Testosterone, also known as "Low T", is a diagnosable medical condition that is called hypogonadism. This occurs when your sex glands produce little to no sex hormone, for men, testosterone. This can be diagnosed by a physician, but most men recognize the symptoms of low testosterone and seek diagnosis followed by treatment. Many men wonder why they experience these symptoms and even more often, how they have low testosterone. Unfortunately, there's no sure way to tell exactly how or why you have low testosterone without being seen by a physician, but they can occur with the use of certain medications, chronic and clinical depression, chronic illness, or a mixture of other medical conditions. At Mantality Health, we offer consultations so that a licensed physician will accurately assess your situation and diagnose why you're feeling the symptoms you are, and if possible start TRT (testosterone replacement therapy).
LOW TESTOSTERONE AND ITS SYMPTOMS?
Low Testosterone, Low T, Hypogonadism, are the result of a lack of testosterone, a sex hormone produced in the testicles in men. While many associate testosterone with bodybuilding, the gym, and libido, we focus on the idea that you will be able to look better, feel better, and perform better in life. It's not just about increasing your libido, it's not just about increasing the muscular gains or increased strength through your workouts, increasing your performance in the bedroom or at work. It's about bringing all of that together to improve your overall function and health. Symptoms can be a mix of any of the following:
- lack of focus
- lack of concentration
- decrease in muscle mass
- decrease in strength
- lack of energy
- lowered libido
- poor sleep
- weight gain
- difficulty losing weight
While at Mantality Health, we focus on increasing any and all of the following above, testosterone itself is crucial in stimulating muscle growth, normal cognitive function, erectile function, good bone density, and increased energy levels.
WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT LOW TESTOSTERONE?
Many men do not know about the condition known as "Low T" or the medical name, hypogonadism, which affects them daily. As discussed above, the symptoms can wear down and show through on your daily activities. But, the question that still stands, what can you do about low testosterone and is it treatable?
Our answer: Of Course! There are many factors to the treatment of low testosterone or hypogonadism, the first step being testosterone replacement therapy. This helps improve various aspects of life. Our motto, "look better, feel better, perform better in all aspects of life." Understanding what testosterone is and what it does is the first step to understanding the condition known as low t. There are many symptoms, but just like any aspect of health, there's no magic pill that fixes everything. Understanding that along with low t treatment supplementing your diet and daily activity with healthy and active choices can increase your success with testosterone replacement therapy.
Again, understanding that testosterone injections aren't a magic pill, they are NOT steroids, they're a supplementation to your natural bodily functions of a hormone that your body produces but is either not producing enough of or is not utilizing the production of testosterone well enough. It's not about rolling back the years and finding the fountain of youth. Iit's about keeping the wisdom of your 30's, 40's and 50's while having the energy levels of your 20's. The biggest problem is most men either aren't aware of the condition or are scared to be tested in fear that it is a "manhood reduction" which is exactly the opposite of what TRT really is. Throughout the years, the stress of school, work and family, getting sick and taking medication, and more, has affected your body's natural production and limited where you should be today.
If you find your daily activities are difficult, that halfway through the day you have no energy, you're reaching for the Red Bull, you're walking to the coffee pot every hour, then testosterone treatment may be for you. That way you can go home and have the energy to play with the kids, you can help your significant other finish dinner, you can climb the post-dinner food coma and finish your night out with just as much energy as you began the day with. Our goal behind treating our clients is to become better husbands, fathers, brothers, and men.
