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.
Factors Contributing to Low T in Men
- Testicular injuries
- Testicular cancer
- Type 2 diabetes
- Hormone disorders
- 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.
