Subtle Symptoms of Low Testosterone

The symptoms of low testosterone are sometimes obvious, but can be subtle. Testosterone levels decline naturally in men as they age over decades, and symptoms may appear slowly. Low testosterone symptoms include:

If a man has symptoms of low testosterone and tests show he has a low testosterone level, a doctor may suggest treatment. For millions of men who have low testosterone levels but no symptoms, no treatment is currently recommended.

  • Low sex drive (libido)
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Fatigue and poor energy level
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Vaginal dryness

Forms of Testosterone Supplements

Testosterone replacement therapy is available in several forms. All can improve testosterone levels:

Gels:

Gels come in packets of clear testosterone gel. Testosterone is absorbed directly through the skin when you apply the gel once a day. AndroGel, Axiron, and Foresta also come in a pump that delivers the amount of testosterone prescribed by your doctor.

Injections and implants:

Testosterone can also be injected directly into the muscles, or implanted as pellets in the soft tissues. Your body slowly absorbs the testosterone into the bloodstream.

Why not a simple testosterone pill? Oral testosterone is available. However, some experts believe oral testosterone can have negative effects on the liver. Using other methods, such as gels, injections or hormone pellets, bypass the liver and get testosterone into the blood directly.

Benefits of HGH Therapy

The pituitary gland produces hormones that promote growth and maintain the functions of our organs and tissues. However, as we age, our pituitary gland produces fewer hormones. The reduction is linked to decreased bone and muscle mass development.

Fortunately, there is a synthetic version of the growth hormone available for individuals who have an extremely natural production. The results from the synthetic human growth hormone (HGH) help adults and athletes maintain their vitality when their bodies no longer produce adequate amounts of it on their own.

HGH therapy is administered through injection of a prescription drug. The use of synthetic growth hormones provides a lot of benefits. HGH is essential in supporting biological processes such as growth and cell regeneration. It also helps repair tissues in crucial organs.

HGH Therapy Can:

  • Increase your ability to exercise and live an active lifestyle.
  • Help you gain muscle mass as well as slow down its deterioration due to aging.
  • Help those who have adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD).
  • Improve your productivity, mood, concentration, sleeping habits, and memory retention.
  • Enhance the metabolic process and the immune system.
  • Speed up bone regeneration and healing. It also improves your bone strength.
  • Decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases and be an effective proponent of kidney disease treatments.
  • Increase collagen production to make the skin stronger and improve skin quality.
  • Help treat the Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic order that causes weak muscles, constant hunger, and slow development.
  • Help women with Turner’s syndrome, which causes heart defects, poor development of ovaries, and short height.
  • Help reduce the symptoms of short bowel syndrome, which is a disorder caused by a poor functional small intestine.

Risks and Side Effects of HGH Therapy

Like with any therapy or treatment, HGH therapy comes with a few risks and side effects. However, these risks and side effects are not very common and for most patients, the benefits significantly outweigh them. Possible side effects and risks include:

If you experience these side effects, it is possible that your dosage is incorrect and that your doctor may need to adjust the amount of hormone you receive in HGH therapy. By adjusting the dosage, you may experience fewer symptoms.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • An increase in insulin resistance
  • Swelling of hands and feet
  • Headaches
