Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is a hormone produced by both men and women. Men produce it primarily in the testicles. Testosterone helps maintain bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength, cardiovascular health, brain function, and sex drive.
All men experience a gradual decline in their testosterone levels after the age of 30. The decrease in testosterone may become more noticeable after the age of 40. This normal drop in testosterone continues for the rest of your life.
Signs & Symptoms
A Natural Part of Aging
Common signs or symptoms of lower testosterone levels include hair loss, reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, mood swings and irritability, loss of muscle mass, reduced ability to recover from exercise, fatigue, difficulty sleeping or increased tiredness, and gaining weight around the abdomen and chest (e.g. the appearance of “man boobs”).
What Can You Do?
A number of actions may help reduce the impact of falling testosterone levels, such as reducing alcohol consumption, avoiding stress, eating a healthy, balanced diet, and staying active. However, none of these solutions will increase testosterone to the levels men generally have in their 20s and early 30s.
How can Ellithia help?
The only solution to this inevitable hormone decrease is to replace the reduced testosterone. We do this with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). TRT increases your body’s testosterone levels, improves your physical, mental, and sexual performance and gets you feeling like your old self again.
