You’re a dude. You like buying things with a motor, carving up a ribeye, and sitting in your favorite chair belching your way through the 4th quarter. This is just part of what makes you feel like a man, so what does testosterone have to do with it? Does it really make that much of a difference? Sure, you’re not as young as you once were, but how does testosterone really affect you?
Testosterone is the primary sex hormone that guys’ bodies rely on to feel and act the way we’re supposed to. Some of the more common symptoms of low testosterone are decreased sex drive, shrinking muscle mass, lack of muscular strength, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, and even depression and anxiety. (EmpowHer) If you’re a man over the age of fifty, you might think that these symptoms are just part of getting older..
Men aged 30 years and older experience an annual decrease in testosterone production of 1-2%, while men over 60 experience a decrease as much as 5% every year. (Mayo Clinic) This is a startling reality many aging men face, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is an exceptional treatment solution for aging men with low testosterone. It’s a safe and affordable way to help you get back to feeling like your old self (minus the “old” part).
