Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Andropause is a complex hormonal deficiency syndrome that usually develops in most men between the ages of 40 and 60 years, in which men experience lowered levels of testosterone. Symptoms of Andropause may include loss of libido, fatigue, increase in belly fat, joint aches, diminished physical performance and recovery, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, reduced mental clarity, a decrease in skin quality, and changes in mood that could include feelings of depression, and a lost sense of well being.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is the primary way to combat the effects of andropause. TRT can be administered in the form of inject-able testosterone’s / testosterone gel/creams. All of these therapies can help men with low testosterone, and restore them to youthful levels. Our Testosterone Replacement Therapy Treatment is carefully formulated to help alleviate most symptoms of male Andropause. Our team at The Men’s Clinic will help you revive the man you once were!
SYMPTOMS OF LOW TESTOSTERONE
It is known that prolonged sleep loss can negatively affect a man’s overall health, but did you know that it can also have consequences on testosterone levels? In a 2011 study , testosterone levels in a week of normal sleep were compared to a week of sleep loss. There was a 15% decrease in levels of testosterone in just one week of sleep loss. Improved testosterone levels can lead to improved quality of sleep.
Loss of Energy
Testosterone is a necessary component in gaining and retaining lean muscle mass. Some decreases in strength can be attributed to age. Studies show that a relatively inactive man will lose one-half percent of muscle strength each year between the ages of 25 and 60. After 60, the rate of muscle loss doubles every 10 years.

However, if you notice a significant change in your strength and endurance, it may be a result of a decrease in testosterone.
Testosterone is one of the major hormones contributing to a man’s sex drive and ability to perform sexually. Factors, such as stress and poor health can effect a man’s sex drive, but it is commonly a result of low testosterone. You should not ignore these symptoms because you may be a candidate for treatment.
Low testosterone can affect your mood – leading to irritability, nervousness, and depression. Higher levels of cortisol (found in men with depression) can lead to lower levels of testosterone.
