Who Needs Testosterone Therapy?

Published August 11, 2015

testosterone therapy benefits

Many people believe that low testosterone levels affect only older men, but the truth is men and women of all ages may find that their ailments are a result of unhealthy testosterone levels. When testosterone levels are below normal, it can affect the mind, body, sexual desire and function. Both men and women often dismiss symptoms of hormonal imbalance as mere signs of aging, believing they must “just live with it.”

Testosterone is an androgen, which is considered to be a “male” hormone, but androgens are also key to a woman’s reproductive cycle and overall health. It is more commonly known that adequate levels of testosterone play a major factor in fertility and wellbeing of men. When testosterone levels become imbalanced, testosterone therapy can restore function and enhance performance for multiple aspects of health in both men and women.

Signs of Low Testosterone

 Low testosterone, also known as low T, can affect esteem, sexual function, energy levels, mood and even weight management in men and women. There is even evidence to show that low T can increase the risk of certain diseases for both sexes.

The Benefits of Testosterone Therapy

Testosterone therapy addresses the side effects of aging—boosting and enhancing function and performance—as well as repairing dysfunction due to imbalances.

Testosterone therapy can help men and women overcome the symptoms of low testosterone safely and effectively. For men, research has also shown testosterone therapy to improve heart function and reduce cardiovascular risk factors. In women, evidence suggests that testosterone therapy reduces cognitive fatigue, lowers the risk of osteoporosis, and treats other symptoms commonly associated with menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats.
