What is Low T?
Millions of American men suffer from low T or decreased testosterone levels. Studies have estimated that anywhere between 1 in 20 men or up to 1 in 3 men have Low T. The symptoms include a decrease in libido or sex drive, lethargy, decrease muscle mass, decrease in bone density, and even depression. Low testosterone (Low T), also known as hypogonadism, occurs when a man’s body produces little or no testosterone and has associated signs and symptoms. Low T refers to low testosterone in the blood – Normal testosterone levels for healthy men are approximately 300 to 1,000 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). However, men with Low T generally have testosterone levels below 300 ng/dL. Low T can be caused by certain medical conditions, such as genetic problems, chemotherapy, injury, or other hormonal problems.
Testopel® is the only FDA-approved testosterone pellet available to help restore testosterone levels in men with Low T. Testopel helps restore testosterone levels in men with Low T for 3 to 4 months, sometimes up to 6 months. This treatment may be covered by your commercial insurance plan as well. Testopel helps to improve mood, sexual function, muscle mass and bone strength without the inconvenience and mess of testosterone gel, or the requirement of daily injections. The testosterone is administered in a quick, in-office procedure, and most men are able to resume regular activity the same day. The low-pain, low-impact procedure is so simple and effective that nine out of 10 men needing testosterone therapy report that they prefer Testopel over other treatment methods.
