When you think of hormones, you likely envision an awkward teenager with acne or a pregnant woman who easily bursts into tears. However, hormones impact the daily functions in the bodies of both adult women and men. In fact, about 25 percent of American men older than age 30 have low testosterone. Although this specific hormone is critical for both sexes, it plays a particularly important role for male health. Testosterone contributes to red blood cell production, sex drive, sperm production, growing of facial and body hair, and maintaining muscle strength and mass. If you have low testosterone, you should seriously consider getting hormone replacement therapy in Richardson. Why? Keep reading to find out!
Easier Weight Loss
Low testosterone can lead to fatigue both from poor sleep and from lack of energy. It also can reduce your muscle mass and strength, potentially causing weight gain. As a result, when you improve your testosterone to optimal levels, you can experience a boost in energy and increase in your muscle mass, which speeds up your metabolism and helps you lose weight more easily.
Better Heart Health
Healthy testosterone levels can reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke because this hormone contributes to red blood cell production. Also, men who have low testosterone are more likely to struggle with weight, which can lead to the development of other serious health conditions that impact the heart, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and more.
More Bone Density
Both women and men can experience a decrease in bone density as they age. Low testosterone in men can increase the risk of fractures. The good news is that testosterone therapy has been shown to be helpful for bone density, particularly in the spine and hip bones, where breaks can be especially fatal for older adults.
Effective for Men of Varying Ages
Testosterone therapy can be used to treat men of various ages. Whether you’re a young adult or a senior citizen or any age in between, hormone replacement can help you achieve optimal health and help you feel like “you” again. In addition, because low testosterone contributes to so many serious conditions, hormone treatment may help you extend your lifespan.
Improved Mood and Mental Health
With low energy comes a higher likelihood of mood or mental health issues. Depression or low self-confidence are common in men with low testosterone. As hormone replacement therapy starts to work, you can feel more motivation, be able to concentrate or remember things better, and have more self-esteem.
If you have started to notice the unpleasant signs of low testosterone, you don’t have to accept it and suffer with the results. You can have hormone replacement therapy and feel more like yourself with more energy, more drive, and more confidence. You can enjoy the health benefits of testosterone treatment and have a higher quality of life for years to come.
