What Are the Signs of Low Testosterone?

Low testosterone in men can result in a diverse array of symptoms, including low energy and diminished libido. Hormone replacement therapy helps reduce symptoms by restoring hormone balance. Dr. Chester Miltenberger, the board certified internal medicine physician at Vanguard Medical Care Lakeland, FL, treats low testosterone and has special training in hormone replacement therapy. 

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

The levels of testosterone and other hormones, such as the thyroid hormone and the human growth hormone, naturally decline with age as the body becomes less effective at producing them. Hormone levels can also be affected by medications, diet, certain health conditions, and other factors. Whatever the cause, low testosterone is associated with a broad range of unwanted symptoms and side effects, including:

  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Decreased motivation 
  • Diminished sex drive
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Loss of bone density 
  • Diminished strength 
  • Memory problems 
  • Low stamina 
  • Weight gain 
  • Irritability 

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) balances hormone levels, increases testosterone, and helps restore strength and vitality. HRT works by replacing depleted hormones with supplemental ones that are bioidentical to those that are naturally produced by the body. Restoring testosterone and other hormones to the proper levels helps the body function optimally and reduces the symptoms associated with a hormone deficiency. HRT can be administered by pill, injection, skin patches, and other methods. 

Dr. Miltenberger understands hormone deficiencies in men and has been treating hormone imbalances and low testosterone at our Lakeland, FL, medical office for many years. He develops treatment plans based on individual symptoms and needs. 

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Raising low testosterone levels and balancing hormone levels in general has numerous benefits. Men who undergo HRT experience several positive outcomes, including: 

  • Better sex drive
  • Increased energy
  • Restored muscle tone 
  • Increased muscle mass
  • Stronger immune system
  • Enhanced memory
  • Greater stamina 
  • Improved mood
