In modern times, the health concerns that were rare earlier are now becoming common and are affecting the quality of life. Hormone imbalance is a common issue these days. According to a study, hormone deficiency was most commonly seen in the age group of 45 to 79 years. In the current era, hormone-related issues are on a rise and occurring mostly in the second or third decade of their life, due to unhealthy lifestyle choices and lack of physical activity in this tech-friendly world. Hormone deficiency in men can lead to various health issues, such as sexual health concerns, muscle weakness, and vulnerability to other diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, and dyslipidemia.
Park Endocrinology aims to bring awareness of this growing concern and provide an expert solution to help treat it with utmost care. Their specialists aim to provide their patients with all information available and guide them through treatment.
Causes for low Testosterone in Men
In medical terminology, low testosterone is known as hypogonadism. There are various reasons why hypogonadism occurs, the primary factor being age. Age is an essential factor in hormone production; testosterone production reduces with age.
The next factor impacting testosterone production is Type 2 diabetes. People with Type 2 diabetes show signs of low testosterone production. Obesity is another cause of low testosterone levels. The majority of patients with chronic kidney disease have low testosterone levels. Other causes include smoking, alcohol and drug abuse which are on the rise with more young adults getting hooked on them.
Symptoms and Effects of Low Testosterone in Men
Symptoms due to low testosterone levels are Extreme Fatigue, poor memory, Low Sex Drive, Mood changes like Depression or Anxiety, Weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and low blood counts ( Anemia ). Chronic kidney disease patients were 5 times more likely to be anaemic if they had low testosterone levels. The simple yet not-so-noticeable symptoms include weight gain and loss of muscle mass. If hypogonadism is ignored and left untreated, this can give rise to longer-term problems, and the sedentary lifestyle resulting from a lack of energy can lead to many serious chronic diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Many people confuse hormonal imbalance with other ageing problems and tend to ignore it.
Park Endocrinology Center is here to make effective and efficient treatments and services accessible to you so that you can take back control of your health, and therefore your life. They take care of their patients and carefully deal with them; in addition to checking hormone levels with a complete blood panel, to identify the root cause of the problem.
The blood panel allows them to see if these conditions have already led to other severe health conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. If one is diagnosed with a health condition, they also discuss potential treatment options for those as part of the personalized treatment plan.
Treatment through TRT for Low Testosterone in Men
Low testosterone levels are treated with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). This treatment enables you to restore original Testosterone levels to the normal range of healthy adults. TRT is performed by qualified experts specialized in hormone replacement. Studies have demonstrated to benefit kidney function in chronic kidney disease patients and improve cardiovascular function in patients on long-term testosterone treatment.
TRT is not similar to taking steroids. Illegal anabolic steroids do not only contain male hormones, they also contain other chemicals to increase muscle mass and athletic performance. Since testosterone is the most commonly known male hormone, many people confuse the use of illegal anabolic steroids with physician-prescribed TRT.
At Park Endocrinology, Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is customized and unique for each patient. The doctors work one-on-one with the patient to discuss the symptoms and help choose a form of TRT that will work best for them. Periodic follow-ups allow doctors to titrate the doses to maximize the results and minimize the side effects.
