What are the Symptoms of a Testosterone Deficiency?
Everyone knows that testosterone is the essence of maleness. It is what makes men feel better, look better, and perform better— both physically and sexually. Determining what is “normal” is a critical aspect of hormone therapy so that a deficiency or excess can be treated appropriately. Unfortunately, a baseline representing the normal healthy state is rarely available, and the average age-related decline in male testosterone is so slow that it can be difficult to recognize an imbalance.
The manifestations of such an imbalance typically depend on the person’s age, as well as the severity and duration of the imbalance.
The reality of a male menopause or “andropause” is gradually gaining recognition. Men do experience hormonal changes as they age, and they usually begin to notice these changes around age 40. However, just as women can begin menopause at an earlier age, men can begin to experience changes sooner than that as well.
Between the ages of 25 and 50, a man’s testosterone level decreases by approximately 50%. Please take the test below to evaluate your need for testosterone replacement.
