Tigard area professional discusses the symptoms of low-T (testosterone)
As men age, they may begin to experience a change in their hormone levels. This typically happens at a point known as andropause, which is essentially the male equivalent of female menopause. The hormone levels shift or drop dramatically, resulting in a variety of symptoms that can affect health and vitality. Men in and around the Tigard area who are dealing with a drop in testosterone, also known as “low-T,” are encouraged to speak to Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center. He is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist who offers a wide range of services including testosterone replacement therapy. While testosterone is often thought of as a male hormone, women also produce testosterone but in a much smaller amount.
Symptoms of low-T can present in a variety of ways. They often happen over time and do not occur overnight. However, changes such as stress at home or work may make it feel as though they have suddenly developed. Below are just some of the common signs and symptoms of low-T:
- Fatigue and weakness
- Increased depression and anxiety
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Increased body fat
- Decreased muscle mass and strength
- Low libido (sex drive)
- Erectile dysfunction
Men who are experiencing the above conditions may be dealing with lowered levels of testosterone. The best way to determine if the hormones are not in balance is by scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Adam Maddox to find out more about the levels of hormones and discover whether you would benefit from testosterone replacement therapy. We highly recommend pellet therapy, which is administered approximately three times a year into the hip or buttocks area and it can provide a more balanced hormone level for better health and vitality.
Tigard area men and those living in other surrounding communities are welcome to consult with Dr. Adam Maddox to educate themselves further on testosterone replacement therapy. This treatment can have a dramatic impact on patients and help them feel vibrant and fulfilled. If you feel as though you have “lost your vitality,” you may be dealing with a dip in your testosterone levels. Contact Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center today to learn more about TRT.
