Did you know that testosterone levels peak in men by early adulthood? Beginning in your early 40s, testosterone levels may decrease at a rate of 1-2% per year. Frequently, by the time men are in their 50s, they begin experiencing symptoms of low testosterone including reduced muscle mass, fatigue, decreased sex drive, weight gain, and much more.

If you think you may be feeling the effects of low testosterone, also known as male hypogonadism or low-t, you’re not alone! Millions of men are impacted by low-T.

How to Manage Low Testosterone in Greenwood, IN

Although there’s no cure for low-T, treatment can help alleviate your symptoms. From testosterone replacement therapy (TRT)– which may be administered via injections, pellets, gels, patches, and orally– to hormone supplements, there are several options that can help restore your testosterone levels and make you feel more like you.

Keep in mind that low testosterone levels can be tied to one’s general health, so if factors like obesity, thyroid issues, medications, or diabetes are impacting testosterone, it may be necessary to treat the underlying issue rather than just taking testosterone supplements. No matter what the cause of your symptoms and low-T, Supro Direct physicians can develop a custom plan to treat your symptoms and improve your overall health.
