A gradual decrease in testosterone levels with age is a normal and inevitable process. With that being said, it’s important to note that testosterone deficiency is a common condition that can affect men of all ages and significantly impact their physical and emotional well-being. Therefore regardless of a man’s age, it’s advisable to seek medical assistance when experiencing the following symptoms and conditions:
- Lower energy levels and mood changes. Testosterone affects the production of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine, which are associated with feelings of well-being and happiness.
- Erectile dysfunction: Men with testosterone deficiency may experience difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.
- Increased body fat: Testosterone deficiency can cause an increase in body fat, particularly in the abdominal area.
- Low sex drive: Testosterone is important for libido and sexual function. Low testosterone levels can reduce sex drive and make it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection.
- Decreased muscle mass: Because testosterone is required for muscle mass maintenance, men with low testosterone levels may experience muscle weakness or decreased muscle mass.
- Breast tissue changes: Testosterone deficiency can cause an increase in breast tissue, leading to breast enlargement and tenderness.
What does testosterone replacement therapy involve?
Overall, men must understand that testosterone deficiency is a medical condition that should not be left untreated. With appropriate treatment, men can experience improvements in their symptoms and their general quality of life. Fortunately for men living in the twenty-first century, advancements in medicine and pharmacology allow us to treat testosterone deficiency in several ways. One of the available treatment options is testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) — a medical treatment that involves supplementing the body with testosterone to address low levels of the hormone in men.
