The most important sex hormone that men have is testosterone — it’s responsible for hair and muscle growth, as well as maintaining your sex drive, sperm production, and bone health. Your testosterone level drops naturally as you age, which can lead to erectile dysfunction and the need for testosterone therapy.

Men's Health Q & A

Pasadena Pellet Therapy

 What is low testosterone?

Low testosterone — which is also called hypogonadism and low “T” — is a common condition for older men. The symptoms include:

  • Reduced sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low sperm count
  • Loss of body hair, muscle mass, and strength
  • Low energy, increased fatigue
  • Increased body fat
  • Enlarged breasts

Chronic low testosterone can also lead to osteoporosis, mood swings, fatigue, and smaller testes.

It’s important to have the doctors at Pasadena Pellet Therapy monitor your low “T” as it may result from several medical conditions, including:

  • Hormone disorders and pituitary problems
  • Chronic diseases of the liver and kidney
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Genetic conditions

What is testosterone therapy?

Before you reach the age of 40, your testosterone levels start to slowly and naturally decrease. While some symptoms associated with low T are a normal part of aging — including a decreased sex drive — it’s unusual to completely lose interest in sex.

The medical professionals at Pasadena Pellet Therapy test the testosterone levels in your blood and will do a thorough review of your medical history to rule out other causes of your symptoms. Testosterone therapy is the use of synthetic testosterone, which functions similarly to the hormones produced by your body. Testosterone therapy improves:

  • Sexual interest and function
  • Erections
  • Mood
  • Energy
  • Body hair growth
  • Bone density
  • Muscle mass
