Lowtestosterone and consequences
Thedecrease in the levels of hormones, especially testosterone, can be fairlyharmful for men as they grow old. The level ofunderstanding regarding this matter, which is also quite commonly referred toas the andropause and even malemenopause, indicates that this problem can be solved with success by means of atreatment that is aimed at increasing the levels of the hormone in question. Andnot only this, but by solving this issue other manifestations which have beenconsidered to follow the entire aging process can now be alleviated. Thosemanifestations include such as building up of excessive weight in awkward bodyareas, irritability, improper erection, lack of muscle tone, and performance below average in sexual intercourses.
Asstated above, due to the decrease in the testosterone levels, many ailments andawkward conditions can befall a man, especially as he approaches the autumn ofhis life. Among those most frequent and most serious manifestations are thefollowing ones:Loss of libidoErectile dysfunctionUnpredictable mood swings, depression, sensitiveness and irritability and excessive fatigueMuscle strength, endurance and tone lossOsteoporosisBuilding up of the excessive body fatInability to maintain concentration, followed by memory lossInability to maintain healthy sleeping habits, followed by occurrence of insomnia and sleep deprivation
Butin the more recent future, there have been made enormous steps forward when itcomes to the development of different forms of testosterone, which furthermakes the dosage determination and administration much less complicated thanbefore, marking a new age in comprehension of the understanding and dealing withthis particular condition. The belief that used to dominate in medicine implied that, as men approach the autumn of their lives a great number ofchanges they go through happens as a direct consequence of the aging processitself, more than they are due to the changes in the levels of hormones, which is evident in the female population in the course of the menopause. The differencebetween men and women lies in the fact that, in men, the entire process is of amuch slower pace and thus is more difficult to notice.
Additionalmanifestation that is more serious in nature and besides such as the loss of sexualurge and the physical arousal ability, men suffering from this condition arealso likely to experience sudden mood and emotional changes, obesity,decrease of overall strength as a direct consequence of muscle tissue loss.Perhaps the most severe and most serious result of this condition is the changein the density of the person’s bones, i.e. osteoporosis that can have as a sideeffect the occurrence of fractures. The decrease of testosterone levels canalso be a direct consequence of lost testicular function.
