Low Testosterone Levels
Low Testosterone Levels
Low testosterone levels are responsible for many of the signs of aging in men. Everything from loss of strength, stamina, libido, muscle mass and the accumulation of body fat are associated with low testosterone levels. In essence, low testosterone levels rob a man of his manhood and are the instigator of old age. Low testosterone levels have also shown in university studies to be associated with other health conditions including heart disease. As men age, their low testosterone levels continue to decline and gradually make them feel like they're falling apart. It's because they are, literally.
As men, they are falling apart. Low testosterone levels instigate numerous physical changes including loss of muscle mass, the accumulation of body fat, erectile dysfunction and loss of libido (“libido” is not technically a physical trait, however, its close association with the other physical traits with regard to a man's sexual confidence warrants the inclusion). Low testosterone levels not only have a deleterious effect on performance, but these physical effects of low testosterone also instigate psychological effects that will further effect mood, self esteem, desire and motivation. The lower his testosterone levels go, the less of a “man” he feels. It's a difficult thing for a man to come face to face with his waning masculinity.
As the man ages his testosterone levels will continue to drop and the physical and psychological effects will increasingly manifest. Low testosterone levels are, in part, responsible for a downward spiraling vortex that is planted in the grave. To date, this natural process has yet to be reversed. Low testosterone is natures way of lowering the curtain on a man's life. That's not to sound morbid, but rather matter of factly, low testosterone in some way contributes to every aspect of aging: lost muscle mass, fatigue, lost motivation, sex drive, increased body fat mass, lethargy, erectile dysfunction, potential for heart attack and the feeling of dread for your lost youth. The foregoing are not the attributes of a young stud. As we said, science has yet to find a way to reverse the aging process. However, it has offered us a means to reverse some of the effects of low testosterone levels.
Supplemental testosterone therapy is widely known to raise free testosterone well into the upper end of the range. Symptoms of low testosterone can legitimately be addressed by medical professionals when a man's free testosterone level falls below 300 ng/dl. At that point he may be prescribed various methods of testosterone replacement from gels and patches to weekly injections of one preparation or another of testosterone.
Almost immediately, recipients of low testosterone treatment notice a change in mood and attitude. Gradually, their body composition begins to take on a more favorable adjustment, erections return to full mast and lost libido gives way to wanton lust. The man is back and he's a stud. This tends to make the partners of these men very happy. Science cannot reverse the clock, but by addressing low testosterone levels, science can turn it back, not completely, but certainly enough to add quality to your years.
