There may well be nearly 13 million American men who suffer from low testosterone and yet the majority of them probably do not know that they even have it.
Despite the high number of men who suffer from low testosterone (popularly known as “low T”), only 10% of them will receive treatment. Low T is somewhat hard to diagnose considering that many of its symptoms are sometimes brushed off as mere signs of aging. The symptoms of testosterone deficiency include increased body fat, fatigue, reduced muscle mass, poor sleeping patterns, anxiety, lowered libido, and depression, and it may even reduce life expectancy depending on the severity. Over time, low testosterone can be detrimental to one’s health, and that is an understatement. Although a man’s testosterone levels gradually decrease around 30 years of age, low testosterone goes beyond the normal level reductions and can spell serious trouble.
Fortunately, there are options available for men. Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment available for many patients. The therapy is offered by a considerable number of hospitals, clinics, and practices, and many health insurance policies will cover it. Flexible payment plans are also widely available for those in financial need. Testosterone replacement therapy is simply the process of replacing deficient testosterone with synthetic hormones. It can be administered through a variety of ways, such as injections, gels, medication, and even small pellets that are inserted under the skin! Regardless on how it’s administered, the therapy has a proven and effective track record of success with those who suffer from low T. Patients can see results in a matter of weeks, and after a while, he can lead a normal, fully functional life.
