What is low testosterone?

Testosterone is a male sex hormone responsible for many male characteristics, including a deep voice, increased muscle mass, and proper sexual functioning. Low testosterone levels are common for various reasons, often causing unpleasant symptoms when left untreated. 

See the Copper Rock Clinic experts at the first sign of hormone imbalance. Their treatment approach leads to testosterone optimization and improvements in overall well-being. 

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

  • Weight gain
  • Increased body fat
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Low libido
  • Depression
  • Thinning hair
  • Reduced bone mass
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeping problems

Hormone imbalance can negatively affect you in many ways. The good news is that simple treatments help restore testosterone to normal levels, improve body functions, and enhance your quality of life.
What are the risk factors for low testosterone?

Low testosterone is a common condition in men, especially those over 40. Common risk factors include:

  • Aging
  • Stress
  • Medical conditions
  • Carrying excess weight
  • Depression
  • Past surgery
  • Certain injuries
  • Some medical treatments

Regardless of what’s causing hormone imbalance, hormone replacement therapy can boost your levels to an ideal range.

Is treatment for low testosterone right for me?

The Copper Rock Clinic team determines if you’re a candidate for low testosterone treatment after checking your vital signs, completing a physical exam, weighing you, and determining your body mass index (BMI). 

They also review your medical history, symptoms, and treatment preferences. A simple blood test helps your provider determine your current hormone levels, so they can customize a treatment plan that’s best suited for you.

What can I expect during testosterone therapy?

During treatment for low testosterone, you might receive oral non-testosterone pills, testosterone injections, use a gel, wear a patch, or receive subdermal pellets. Each of these treatments can increase the testosterone levels within your body and ensure they remain within an ideal range. 

Your specialist must insert the pellets underneath your skin in the office, but you can administer most other testosterone therapy treatments at home.

Follow up with your provider routinely to ensure your hormones stay balanced. They’re always available to address any questions or concerns.
