The Top 3 Reasons Men Seek Testosterone Therapy

Are you frustrated by a lack of energy, vitality, and joie de vivre? Maybe you're growing older and have concerns about certain aspects of your health including your sex life. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to ask yourself:

Could low T be to blame?

If you're an adult male deciding if testosterone therapy is right for you, it may help to learn some of the common reasons why men seek out this treatment. After all, no two men living with hypogonadism(low testosterone or low T) will have the exact same experience. But, there are a few hallmark signs and symptoms which often inspire males such as yourself to seek the support and resources they deserve.

At Men's T-Clinic®, we offer unparalleled customer service, a male-focused approach to care, and a range of innovative services including testosterone replacement treatment (TRT). We've helped thousands of men fromour community find relief fromtheir issues stemming from hypogonadism. We'd be happy to meet with you and help you decide if TRT is right for you.

3 reasons why men seek testosterone therapy:

According to a 2007 study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 1 out of 4 men age 30+ has low testosterone. Estimates project that by 2025, as many as 65 million American adult males will be living with symptomatic hypogonadism.

Among the many reasons why men seek out TRT, the following three issues tend to be the most commonly cited among our patients (as well as in the research):

1. Decreased Energy

A general feeling of sluggishness and tiredness is a common reason why a man becomes interested in TRT. Finding the motivation to work out can seemimpossible which often adds to the frustration. Why? Because low T is often associated with reduced muscle mass and strength.

To further compound the problemof fatigue, many men with low T also experience changes in their sleep patterns and emotions. For instance, some men struggle with falling or staying asleep. They may also experience difficulties in concentration and mood regulation.

2. Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a multi-factorial men's health issue often caused by low levels of testosterone. Men with ED find it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection, which can cause a significant amount of emotional distress.

Men with low T may also experience fewer spontaneous erections and struggle with fertility.

3. Decreased Libido

For many men with low T, their sex life still experiences a hit, even if they aren't dealing with obvious erectile dysfunction issues. The reason? Lowered libido (sex drive) is a common consequence ofhypogonadism. This can have a dramatic impact on both the man's mental health and his relationship with a partner or spouse.
