Low Testosterone

Low Testosterone in Modesto

Low testosterone, also known as low T or male hypogonadism, is a condition common among men older than 60 years old but may also affect younger men.

Testosterone is a hormone produced in the body and in males, is primarily produced in the testicles. It is responsible for sexual development and sperm production, building muscle mass, bone density, emotional health and more.

Low T can result from a variety of causes including injury or trauma to the testicles, taking certain medications, chemotherapy and radiation, certain chronic illnesses, developmental issues and conditions, age and more.

Symptoms related to low T include, but are not limited to:

  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Weight Gain
  • Mood Changes
  • Decreased Energy
  • Inability to Focus and Memory Problems
  • Thinning Hair and Loss

Low T can easily be determined with a blood test. Based on the results, your Forum Health provider can recommend the best treatment option for you. Since hormone therapies may affect men’s fertility, it is important to discuss your plans for reproduction with your provider.

At Forum Health, we take a whole-person view when addressing low T in men and create a program that addresses your specific needs.

Low Testosterone and Metabolic Syndrome

While accustomed to hearing about menopause and all of the symptoms women experience, most men don’t realize that they too undergo a similar transition called Andropause. Andropause, often referred to as “male menopause,” is a decline in testosterone production that can begin as early as thirty, depending on exacerbating factors. The gradual change in hormonal status can cause a variety of symptoms such as:

  • Depression/anxiety
  • Decreased urinary flow
  • Abdominal weight gain
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Low libido
  • Concentration problems
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Fatigue

The decrease in testosterone left unbalanced can also be responsible for a condition called metabolic syndrome.

This syndrome can include:

  • Insulin resistance/high blood glucose
  • Elevated triglycerides
  • High blood pressure
  • Low HDL cholesterol
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • Clotting disorders
  • Elevated C-reactive protein
