Low Testosterone treatments in Houston, TX.
When it comes to Low Testosterone in Men (Low T), guys in Houston often feel like they're running on empty. Low Testosterone (Low T) is a common condition in aging men that is successfully corrected with Low Testosterone treatments by RenewFX Low Testosterone Doctors in Houston, TX.
So what is Low Testosterone and why is this happening? After age 30, most men begin to experience a gradual decline in testosterone. A decrease in sex drive sometimes accompanies the drop in testosterone, leading many men to mistakenly believe that their loss of interest in sex is simply due to getting older.
"Some say it's just a part of aging, but that's a misconception," says Jason Hedges, MD, PhD, a urologist at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. A gradual decline in testosterone can't explain a near-total lack of interest in sex, for example. And for Hedges' patients who are in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s and having erectile problems, other health problems may be a bigger issue than aging.
"A lot of the symptoms are mirrored by other medical problems," Hedges says. "And for a long time, we were not attributing them to low testosterone, but to diabetes, depression, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. But awareness and appreciation of low testosterone has risen. We recognize now that low testosterone may be at the root of various problems."
Doctors will want to rule out any such possible explanations for symptoms before blaming them on low testosterone. They will also want to order a specific blood test to determine a man's testosterone level.
Low Testosterone: How Low Is Too Low?The bottom of a man's normal total testosterone range is variable based upon age. We don't treat labs, but instead...we treat the patient, identify what is causing various symptoms and then determine solutions. So you see it's really about determining how you feel and what's causing the issues, regardless of a lab number...and then correcting the issues.
A lower than "normal" score on a blood test can be caused by a number of conditions, including:
Some medicines and genetic conditions can also lower a man's testosterone score. Aging does contribute to low scores. In some cases, the cause is unknown.
A low score does not always translate to symptoms, but we often find something that's off when we see lower numbers.
Hedges agrees and warns that even if a man does not have symptoms, he may be well advised to seek treatment. Low testosterone scores often lead to drops in bone density, meaning that bones become more fragile and increasingly prone to breaks.
"That's something I would want to have a conversation about," Hedges says. "Bone density issues are not always apparent."
