Testosterone is an important hormone in the male body as it is responsible for maintaining healthy bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, facial and body hair, red blood cell production, sex drive, and sperm production. The decline of testosterone production can lead to significant body changes including hair loss, fatigue, infertility, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and weight gain. Emotional changes are often present as well with many patients reporting feelings of increased depression and low self-esteem. Some have also experienced a lack of motivation, trouble concentrating, and memory loss.
As men age, it’s common for their testosterone levels to decrease. Restoring this important hormone can significantly improve the male endocrine system as well as other parts of the body. From heart health to cognitive health, to fat and muscle composition, to libido, and more, hormone therapy for men can return function and add vitality to the aging male.
