Treatment Low Testosterone

The 3 Best Treatments for Low Testosterone

Low testosterone can occur when the body makes insufficient quantities of testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. When levels of testosterone drop, the effects can be pretty noticeable.

The effects of low testosterone can have a significant impact on a man’s quality of life. Low testosterone can result in a decreased sex drive, fatigue, depression, and weak bones. It is essential to be aware of the symptoms and to seek treatment if necessary. If you are suffering from low testosterone, here is a breakdown of the three best treatments for low testosterone available.

Causes and Risk Factors of Low Testosterone

The most common cause of low testosterone is age. As men get older, their bodies produce fewer hormones which leads to a decrease in testosterone levels. Other potential causes include:

  • Injury or infection in the testicles
  • Medications
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Kidney disease
  • Pituitary gland problems

Chronic stress, heavy drinking or drug use, and a family history of low testosterone are also factors.

Signs and Symptoms of Low Testosterone

In addition to receiving a diagnosis of low testosterone from a doctor, here are a few ways to detect a drop in testosterone levels.

  • Low libido, or decreased sex drive, is a common symptom of low testosterone levels and is characterized by decreased sexual desire and interest in sexual activities.
  • Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.
  • Reduced strength and endurance.
  • Testosterone helps to regulate muscle growth, so a decreased muscle mass may result.
  • Low energy levels and fatigue, as testosterone is necessary for proper energy metabolism.
  • Testosterone plays a vital role in regulating fat metabolism. Low testosterone can cause an increase in body fat.
  • Since testosterone helps to stimulate bone growth, decreased bone density may be seen.
  • Low testosterone can cause irritability, agitation, and mood swings due to hormonal changes.

3 Best Treatments for Low Testosterone

There are several ways to manage low testosterone. Here are three of the best treatment options for low testosterone.

1. Exercise

Exercise may be beneficial as it can help increase muscle mass and energy and improve overall health and well-being. Weightlifting and other resistance training are the best exercises for short- and long-term testosterone production.

2. Weight loss

Obesity is a risk factor for low testosterone. Men who are overweight or obese are more likely to have low testosterone. They may feel better and have more energy if they lose weight.

3. Testosterone replacement therapy

Hypogonadism impairs testosterone production due to an issue with the testicles or the pituitary gland, which controls the testicles. Testosterone replacement therapy can help replenish testosterone levels, improve symptoms and help maintain overall health and well-being in these men.

Hormone replacement therapy can come from injections, pellets, patches, or gels. Here is some additional information about hormone replacement options.

  • Injections are the most common option and involve the administration of testosterone directly into the muscle.
  • Pellets are inserted into the fatty tissue and slowly release testosterone into the bloodstream.
  • Patches are applied to the skin and release testosterone into the body.
  • Gels are applied directly to the skin and absorbed.

Testosterone replacement therapy can help to increase testosterone levels and reduce symptoms of low testosterone.
