Florida Urology Physicians - Spotlight on - Low Testosterone (“Low T”)
One specialty of our Fort Myers urologist is treating low testosterone, or “low T”. Millions of men throughout the U.S. suffer from low T without even realizing it, often being treated for conditions when low T is actually the real culprit. Testosterone is the hormone that is responsible for the physical changes a man experiences during puberty and is responsible for his sex drive. Starting at around age 30, testosterone begins to gradually decrease. This decrease is often accompanied by a diminishing interest in sex. Other symptoms can include impotence, decreased energy, depression, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, osteoporosis, sleep disorders, and irritability. A quick and simple blood test that checks testosterone levels will be able to determine if you are experiencing low T. There are several different types of treatment for low T. Testosterone can be added to the body through injections done every few weeks that go into the muscle and are absorbed into the bloodstream. Patches placed on the upper arm once a day also add testosterone to the body. Testosterone gels can also be applied to the underarm area. The newest method for low T treatment is implants such as Testopel. These implants involve testosterone pellets that are injected under the skin every four to six months, allowing the patient to experience strong and continuous testosterone therapy. Some disadvantages of low T therapy can include increased risk of heart disease and mood swings and low T therapy must be used continuously or else testosterone levels will go back to being low. If you’re suffering from low testosterone, Fort Myers urological care from Florida Urology Physicians can figure out the best treatment for you.
