A new study published by Clinical Endocrinology News is shedding additional light on the causes of low testosterone in men. The study indicated that low testosterone levels may be more closely related to poor health than to aging.
Researchers at University of Australia conducted the study, which followed almost 1400 men with an average age of 54. They found that most of the men did not have significant changes in testosterone levels over a period of five years. However, the few men who did experience a substantial drop in their testosterone also had other health issues, such as an increase in weight or cardiovascular disease. This suggests that low testosterone may be related to an underlying medical problem and not just a factor of aging.
In some ways, the connection between low testosterone and health problems is not new information. Low testosterone has already been linked with increased risk of heart disease and depression, and is much more likely to occur in overweight men. The condition also has a number of unpleasant symptoms including lack of energy, anxiety and mood swings, and sexual problems. Scientists will surely continue research into the causes of low testosterone and other health issues. This area of study is one that American Longevity Center will watch closely for further developments.
Luckily, no matter the cause of low testosterone, doctors at American Longevity Center can treat the condition. Through advanced diagnostic testing, an individual health profile is created of each patient. Treatment is custom-designed, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is used to supplement the body testosterone levels. Testosterone supplementation is available through an oral supplement, a topical gel or injection. When a healthy balance of testosterone is restored, in most cases, symptoms are eliminated.
As medical science has come to realize in the past two decades, low testosterone can be a debilitating issue that zaps the magic out of life. It can be indicative of a more serious medical condition and disrupt even normal day-to-day activities. Thanks to clinics like ALC, it not something that anyone has to live with.
