Low Testosterone (“Low T”)


Low Testosterone (“Low T”) – presents as fatigue, loss of interest in sex, feeling depressed, along with thinning of bone density, loss of muscle mass and loss of body hair. While men do not have a common age of “male menopause”, as females do, there is a decline in male hormones as a part of the aging process. Other causes may include testicular failure due to disease or trauma, pituitary disease as well as side effects from chemotherapy or radiation. Because testosterone therapy may have important side effects, the diagnosis of a low testosterone, and any decision for therapy must be carefully judged by physician and patient.
