What Causes Low Testosterone?
Low testosterone or “Low-T”, is very common and currently affects about 4 to 5 million men in the U.S and thousands of men in the Jacksonville FL area. This may seem like not a lot, but that’s because the majority of men affected are above the age of 40. About 19-39% of older men experience low testosterone, at different levels.
After a man turns 30, testosterone begins to decrease in production. This happens to every man, but for many near Jacksonville, testosterone production decreases faster than most. Cleveland clinic listed out some factors that can cause Low-T:
- Family history of low testosterone
- Type two diabetes
- Liver or kidney disease
- Pituitary gland tumors
- Radiation treatment
- Development issue in the testicles
What are the Warning Signs and Symptoms of Low Testosterone?
Low testosterone can have a tremendous effect on the male body, physically and mentally. You may have low testosterone if you experience the following:
- Low sex drive
- Weight gain
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Quick mood changes
Low sex drive and weight gain are the 2 most common symptoms. Testosterone is one of the hormones the prominent in sexual development and drive. Without it, your body has no desire or ability for reproduction. On top of that, fat cells metabolize testosterone and having a lack of testosterone can lead to obesity. Low testosterone can also lead to many other diseases and complications.
Low Testosterone Treatment
While there’s no cure for low testosterone, there are many ways for men in Jacksonville to control their hormone levels. For this reason, many men try testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). This isn’t an option that suits every man though. It is important to meet with Dr. Duboy or Dr. Homra to discuss treatment options for low testosterone and to see if testosterone replacement therapy is right for you.
If very minor, sometimes changes in lifestyle can help treat low testosterone, such as losing weight and improving your diet.
