What Is Low Testosterone?

Testosterone is the male hormone associated with sex drive and sperm production. Normal testosterone levels in men vary by age, increasing during puberty, then declining in adulthood, often in the 30’s and 40’s.

For some men, testosterone production declines prematurely and dramatically. Men who suffer from low testosterone may experience a range of symptoms that seem unconnected to hormone levels and reproduction. Emotional and physical states are affected by testosterone production.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

If you’re experiencing low testosterone, your physician at Nava Health and Vitality Center can test your hormone levels to diagnose your condition. However, you’ll know something isn’t right, even without a test. The symptoms of low testosterone are listed below:

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Loss of bone mass

  • Reduced sex drive

  • Depression, moodiness

  • Loss of body hair

  • Fatigue

  • Obesity

  • Infertility

Natural Testosterone Replacement

Hormone therapy for men can help alleviate or curb symptoms. Testosterone replacement therapy, also known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, restores testosterone safely. Using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy techniques, our physicians match the dosage of testosterone to the need, to ensure that you’re maintaining safe, healthy levels and hormone balance overall.

In addition to BHRT treatment, we also provide lifestyle coaching and recommend behavioral changes that can boost your testosterone production without use of medication. By eating right, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy sleep schedule, you can regulate hormone production. Conditions caused by lack of activity and poor diet can interfere with testosterone production. By altering your everyday behaviors, you can boost your hormone levels. We recommend:

  • Eat foods high in zinc. Whole grains, oysters, beans and nuts can help boost your body’s testosterone production.

  • Sleep 8-9 hours each night. Getting adequate sleep can improve your body’s functioning overall.

  • Exercise daily. Moderate amounts of exercise can help boost your body’s testosterone production. Work with your physician to ensure that your exercise levels are safe.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Side Effects

Overall, testosterone replacement therapy results are positive for our patients. However, some patients do experience negative side effects. One of the reasons we suggest bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is because it’s monitored by a doctor. Working with our physicians, you’ll be able to catch the negative side effects before they become a problem. Small side effects to watch for include:

  • Testical shrinkage

  • Oily skin

  • Fluid retention

Some studies show that testosterone replacement therapy side effects can be more serious than the side effects listed above. Your doctor can help you determine whether testosterone replacement therapy is working for you. We’ll adjust the dosage as needed to keep you healthy.
