Low Testosterone

Do you often feel tired, have trouble concentrating, or find your sex drive to be low or non-existent? Low testosterone (low T) affects approximately 40 percent of men over the age of 45 and 14 million American men overall.

Also known as hypogonadism, low T is associated with andropause, which is the male equivalent to menopause in women. In men, testosterone influences more than muscle growth and sex drive; it also plays an important role in the health of your brain, kidneys, bones, and liver. There are many factors that may contribute to low testosterone in men such as:

  • Obesity
  • Stress
  • Testicular injuries
  • Testicular cancer
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hormone disorders
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Chronic liver or kidney disease

In Phoenix, Arizona, urologist Dr. Desi Avila can determine what is causing your low T and help regulate the level of testosterone in your body. Doing so can increase your sex drive, boost your energy, and reduce fatigue. Some of the treatments for low T include:

  • Testosterone injections
  • TESTOPEL® testosterone pellet
  • Topical testosterone gel prescription medication
  • Weight loss programs
  • Aggressive lifestyle changes

If you think you might have low testosterone, call (480) 961-2323 to make an appointment with Dr. Avila at Ironwood Urology in Phoenix, or you can request one online.
