- 4-5 million men in America have low testosterone levels along with symptoms by the low t doctors.But ironically very limited number of people know what is low t.the ignorance regarding this can be measured by the fact that most often the words such as testosterone and terms such as hormonal imbalance treatment are often misspelled as testerone, treatment for low testerone or tosterone replacement.And that is the reason why it is imperative for the aging people to visit the low t doctors for a complete understanding of this problem
- Only 5-10% of these men are being treated.
- Nearly 40% of men 45 years of age or older were found to have hypogonadism as they were having very low testosterone in their blood serum. Men tend to be shy and reluctant in taking the low testerone test just to shy away from the fact that they have low testerone levels . This could be because of the inherent fears of the synthetic low t treatment; but now, with the arrival of natural testosterone replacement, the testosterone replacement doctors can easily manage the low testerone treatment.
- Hypogonadism can be simply defined as low testosteron in men and the natural testerone replacement is considered to be the best form of testerone therapy for men.
- Men can find the youth and vigor of the 20s and the 30s by undergoing testosterone therapy for men.
- testerone therapy will make you look younger than your contemporaries.
- treatment for low testosterone can significantly improve the quality of your life.

What is Testosterone
- Is the principal male sex hormone.
- Is the main male hormone that differentiates men from women.
- Androgenic Effects
- Is responsible for normal growth and development of the male sex organs such as the penis, scrotum, testicles and prostate.
- Is responsible for deepening of the voice, sperm production, sex drive, penis erectile tension (hardness) and endurance (duration), and the development of male hair development (both facial and body hair growth).
- Anabolic Effects
- Promotes secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle mass and strength, bone density and strength, stimulation of bone growth and maturation.
- Increases protein anabolism (build-up) and decreases protein catabolism (breakdown).
- Improves nitrogen balance with sufficient intake of calories and protein.
What Causes Low Testosterone?
- Three causes of low testosterone:
- Natural decline with aging (Andropause).
- The most common cause of low testosterone in men.
- Disease of the testicles (primary hypogonadism) due to:
- Abnormalities at birth (congential abnormalities).
- Acquired - Environmental toxins, chronic diseases (ie Kidney, Liver disease), certain drugs (Alkylating agents, Suramin, Ketoconazole, Glucocorticoids), radiation, infections (AIDS, mumps), trauma, testicular torsion, autoimmune damage.
- Disease of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus (secondary hypogonadism) due to:
- Abnormalities at birth (congential abnormalities).
- Acquired – Diabetes, Opiates, high prolactin, glucocorticoid treatment, suppression of gonadotropins or gonadal steroid administration (ie past steroid abusers).
Andropause and Low Testosterone
- Andropause is defined as low testosterone levels in men due to the gradual decline in hormone levels which occur with aging.
- Testosterone levels in men decrease by 1-2% per year starting at the age of 30.
- 4-5 million men in America have low testosterone due to
- Only 5-10% of these men are receiving treatment for low t.
- 6.5 million American men are estimated to have low testosterone levels by the year 2025.

Diagnosis of Andropause
- Low testosterone (measured by blood work)
- Total testosterone<300 ng/dl
- Free testosterone<5 ng/dl
- There is no other known cause for the low testosterone
- The physician must make sure there is no pituitary disease.
- The physician must make sure there is no testicular disease.
- Presence of symptoms
Symptoms of Low Testosterone
- Many men assume that the symptoms that they have are “just a part of getting older”.And that is why they do not seek the (testerone replacement) or in other words testerone replacement therapy.

- These symptoms are completely reversed and alleviated by testosterone replacement therapy in men who have low testosterone levels.
- Symptoms of Low Testosterone are:

Health Risks of Low Testosterone
- Decreased Muscle Strength
- Increases the risk of falling as one ages.
- Results in increased risk of hip fractures
- 50% of elderly die within the first year of a hip fracture.
- Also significant increases the risk of hip fractures and other broken bones.
- Mental Decline
- Increased risk of Alzheimer's Disease
- Increased risk of Depression
- Worsening memory and concentration
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Hypertension – High Blood Pressure
- Hyperlipidemia – High Cholesterol
- Obesity (especially abdominal fat)
- Increased Risk of Heart Disease
- Due to increase risk factors – Metabolic syndrome
- Vascular system
- Older clinical trials showed that testosterone replacement relieved symptoms of angina and peripheral vascular disease.
- Transdermal testosterone therapy improved exercise-induced myocardial ischemia (measured as time to ST depression).
- Testosterone dilates blood vessels which decreases pressure against the heart resulting in less strain on the heart.
- Low Testosterone results in increased artery stiffness due to increased arterial calcification.
- Lipids and inflammatory cytokines
- Low testosterone is associated with:
- Higher total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), and triglycerides (bad cholesterol).
- Lower HDL (good cholesterol).
- Higher inflammatory cytokines (increased inflammation).
