Just as it was with puberty, it is inevitable for a man’s body to go through several physical changes as they get older. However, although some of these changes are age-related, there are also many issues that can be attributed to a hormone imbalance, such as low testosterone.
Biologically, it’s usually normal for the body to cut back on hormone production once a man reaches the age of 30 and starts the transition to middle age. Without continued replenishment, a man’s testosterone levels will gradually decline by 1% as they age. Unfortunately, as this occurs, other factors such as trauma, injury, stress, and a sedentary lifestyle can cause diminishing testosterone levels to fall further below the expected parameters to maintain their health. As a result, men with Low T will usually experience a range of symptoms that can lower their quality of life, such as:
- Low sex drive
- Decreased muscle mass
- Constant fatigue
- Impaired mental acuity
- Weakened bone density
- Increased weight gain
Now, most men usually assume that these issues are entirely age-related and will typically accept their fate and rarely seek treatment. But if left untreated, low testosterone can significantly affect both your physical and mental health as it speeds up the development of certain medical issues such as sarcopenia (muscle wasting), osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders, obesity, diabetes, and even erectile dysfunction. Sadly, struggling with these conditions can not only severely reduce the ability to fully enjoy life, but given enough time, they can eventually increase your mortality and significantly shorten your lifespan.
Naturally, aging men would prefer to live a long healthy life and avoid having to struggle with these issues as they get older. And this is where the staff at the Renew Vitality Testosterone Clinic can help. Our physicians specialize in male hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that can help men correct issues and avoid medical complications caused by hormone imbalance. Through HRT, we utilize customized hormone treatments to provide a testosterone replacement therapy that can help men overcome their Low T symptoms and experience several physical improvements to optimize their overall health, including lean muscle growth, reduced body fat, increased sexual desire, greater bone mineral density, and improved energy and focus.
