Men: Is Low Testosterone to Blame?

Since testosterone levels gradually decline after age 30, your chances of having low testosterone increase with age. And with so many symptoms being linked with low testosterone, more men than ever are asking their physicians about tests and treatment options.

So could low testosterone be impacting your health and quality of life? If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, maybe it’s time to check in with your doctor. He’ll rule out other explanations, and then order a blood test to determine your testosterone level. If low testosterone is the culprit, treatment options can often improve symptoms in just a few weeks. But treatment can have risks, so you’ll want to review the pros and cons carefully with your doctor before deciding on the best course for your health.

If you have symptoms of low testosterone, talk to your doctor about getting screened, or call 800-216-5556 for a referral to one of our physicians today.
