Hormones affect almost every element of the way your body functions. They are like chemical messages that travel through the bloodstream, playing a role in the way the body grows and develops, the way you digest and metabolize food, your sexual feelings and functions, reproduction, and even your day-to-day mood. Your hormones are created right inside your body by your endocrine glands. These include the thyroid, adrenal glands, pancreas, and male testes, and female ovaries. Even small fluctuations in your hormones can make a big difference in the way your body feels and functions.
When you hear someone talk about having a low T level, they are referring to low testosterone. Low testosterone is very common, especially in older men, as testosterone levels often decrease with age. When a man’s testosterone falls below 300 nanograms per deciliter, they are considered to have a low T level. The normal range is 300-1,000 ng/dl.
There are many signs and symptoms that a man’s testosterone level has dipped below normal. These include:
• Decreased sex drive
• Difficulty developing and maintaining an erection
• Low volume of semen
• Loss of hair
• General fatigue or reduced levels of energy
• Loss of physical strength or muscle mass
• Reduction in bone mass
• Increase in body fat
• Changes in mood
• Loss of memory
• Smaller testicles
• Foggy thinking
If you or someone you love is experiencing these symptoms, contact the team at Infinite Wellness Hormone Specialists in Scottsdale, AZ to discuss the options available.
There are treatments available for men that suffer from low testosterone, or low T count. Before seeking treatment, it’s important to confirm your testosterone count and not simply assume that symptoms like low sex drive, reduced muscle mass, increased body fat, and having trouble with erections are a result of low T count, as there are many possible causes of each of these symptoms. Your doctor will perform blood tests – because testosterone levels can fluctuate throughout the day, you may need to have a few blood tests done to determine an accurate count. Many doctors will perform these blood tests early in the day when testosterone levels are at their highest.
If you are concerned you may have a low T count, talk to a physician right away. Leaving this condition untreated can have serious consequences to your long-term health. If the T count continues to drop or remains very low, your bones could become weak and brittle and more susceptible to fractures, and prolonged low T can also lead to heart problems down the road.
Treating low testosterone is easy and non-invasive. Here at Infinite Wellness Hormone Specialists, we specialize in the use of hormone pellet therapy to treat low T levels. This is arguably the best form of testosterone replacement treatment available. It is not as well-known as testosterone gels, creams, and injections because this type of therapy requires a skilled, specially trained physician to administer, which is one reason why Infinite Wellness should be your first call if you suspect a low T count. Hormone pellet therapy involves having small pellets of testosterone inserted under your skin, which will slowly release the testosterone that your body is no longer producing naturally.
