Nowadays, more men take their health seriously as they age. Where at one point in history, men were hesitant to get regular check-ups, it seems that during the modern age, millions of men are focusing on how to keep themselves healthy during the later stages of their lives. But although men in their 40s are more proactive about getting prostate exams and colonoscopies to ensure their bodies are operating at top efficiency, many are still unaware of how testosterone plays a vital role in maintaining their overall physical function.
From childhood to puberty, testosterone is primarily responsible for developing many male characteristics and physical traits important to their physical health. After puberty, testosterone continues to maintain those important traits and helps keep men physically active throughout their 20s. However, after 30, men’s testosterone levels will naturally decline, decreasing by 1% every year. Once their testosterone levels fall below the normal standards for their age, the loss of testosterone can lead to a testosterone deficiency that can impair the maintenance of the male anatomy and negatively impact a male’s defining physical traits and characteristics. This hormone imbalance is commonly referred to as low testosterone or Low T.
As a result of the hormone imbalance, men with low testosterone will usually experience a range of debilitating symptoms such as reduced sex drive, decreased muscle mass, increased body fat, constant fatigue, weaker bone density, and impaired cognitive function. Low testosterone can also cause a chemical imbalance in the brain that can lead to several mood changes– such as depression, anxiety, and irritability–that can negatively impact a man’s social interactions with co-workers, family, and friends, which may inhibit them from having a healthy social life. If left untreated, low testosterone symptoms can also become signs of potentially more serious health complications, including osteoporosis, accelerated sarcopenia, obesity, diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and cardiovascular diseases. Living with these conditions can accelerate the aging process and cause their overall health to decline further, effectively shortening their lifespan.
To avoid these potential scenarios, men with low testosterone will need medical treatment to help raise their testosterone to normal levels and improve their symptoms. And that’s where male hormone replacement therapy (HRT) from Renew Vitality can help. With HRT, the physicians at the Renew Vitality Testosterone Clinic in San Francisco, CA, can provide regularly scheduled hormone medications to help men introduce additional hormones into their bodies and balance their hormone levels. Thanks to HRT, our patients can receive a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) program designed to help them boost their low testosterone to optimal standards and alleviate their Low T symptoms. After undergoing TRT at Renew Vitality, men can greatly improve their health and experience several physical improvements, such as enhanced sexual desire, improved muscle strength, boosted energy levels, reduced body fat, and increased cognitive function.
