Is Low Testosterone Treatment Right For Me?
As the male population in general has gotten older, doctors have been seeing more and more men who are complaining of lower energy, depression, chronic fatigue, erectile dysfunction and even overall weakness.
While some of these may be symptomatic of sickness, for many it’s likely that low testosterone is the culprit. It’s been estimated that some 13 million men have low testosterone levels, and some 90 per cent do not seek treatment for the problem because they think it’s just a normal part of aging. In fact, testosterone levels do start to decline after age 30 for most men, but that’s no longer something we need to accept as just a fact of life.
