Low Testosterone Q & A

What is low testosterone?

As men age, decreases in the male hormone testosterone often occur. After age 30, levels decrease by about 1% each year. Low testosterone can produce unwelcome side effects associated with aging. 

Fortunately, low testosterone treatment for men at Viva Wellness Medical Group is simple and noninvasive.

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

If you have low testosterone, you might experience one or more of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Decreased sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sleeping problems
  • Increases in body fat
  • Decreased lean muscle mass
  • Low bone density
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Hair loss
  • Irritability or trouble concentrating

If you suffer from symptoms of low testosterone, you don’t have to live with them. Your practitioner at Viva Wellness Medical Group creates a personalized low testosterone treatment plan to get your levels back on track.

What is the treatment for low testosterone?

Your provider reviews your medical history and symptoms and may complete a physical exam. They utilize blood tests to determine how low testosterone levels are. 

Your doctor offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, including synthetic testosterone that’s virtually identical to testosterone your body naturally produces, to boost your levels.

Hormone specialists at Viva Wellness Medical Group offer testosterone injections that go directly into the muscle, where the hormone pools and gets stored in tissues. Small amounts of testosterone are released into your bloodstream over time.

After receiving prescription testosterone injections, you can safely administer them from the comfort of home. Your doctor might recommend two injections weekly to achieve desirable results, which can appear in as little as two weeks.

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

If you have low testosterone, you’re likely a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Your doctor recommends an appropriate dosage based on how low your levels are.

To further boost your confidence and restore a youthful appearance, providers at Viva Wellness Medical Group offer aesthetic procedures to reduce deep frown lines (wrinkles) and other signs of aging in men and women. Examples include fillers, Botox®, microneedling, medical weight loss, and much more.

Don’t let low testosterone and its side effects reduce your confidence and quality of life. Schedule an appointment with Viva Wellness Medical Group by phone or online today.
