Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone in men. Interestingly, it affects men’s mood, energy and motivation.
After age 30, Testosterone production begins to decline on average by about 1% per year, and then dropping drastically later in life. This can lead to many issues such as: inability to sleep, loss of muscle and bone mass, increased belly fat, reduced sex drive and other issues. Improving the quality of life is the reason testosterone replacement therapy clinics have opened their doors in the US.
Is replacement therapy advisable? It can be when managed responsibly by experienced physicians. If you are older, and your testosterone level falls below the normal range, it makes sense to address it with therapy because low levels of testosterone can negatively impact health while increasing risks associated with diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis.
