Are you a male who has noticed a decrease in his sex drive? How about a decrease in your overall energy level?

If so, you could be suffering from Low T also known as low testosterone, hypogonadism or andropause. This is Doctor Evan Goldfischer, also known as Dr. Love from The Premier Medical Group of the Hudson Valley. Many men experience a decline in their testosterone production as they age, however, studies have shown that obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure increase a man's risk for low testosterone. Testosterone is the primary male hormone that is responsible for the onset of puberty and facilitates the development of a man's musculature, bone mass, vocal chord thickening and his sex drive. In fact, some men with erectile dysfunction have found the cause to be low testosterone. Also, some men who have found that they tired more easily have been found to have a decrease in their testosterone levels.

Testosterone replacement is very common and has been available for many years. Traditionally, men relied on injections, but now there are several topical gels and creams, in addition to long term slowly dissolving implants that are available and are FDA approved. There are side effects to testosterone replacement such as thickening of the blood, worsening of sleep apnea, and liver toxicity, so you should never take these medications on your own. Testosterone replacement should only performed under the guidance of a physician with proper monitoring on a regular basis for side effects.
