We often tell prospective patients to take our Low T Quiz prior to scheduling an appointment, to determine if they are a candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy. The Low T Quiz lists most of the common symptoms men with low testosterone experience. Some of these symptoms include an increase in body fat coupled with a decrease in muscle mass, and a decrease in sex drive, libido, and energy levels.. These symptoms can sometimes be indicators of other health issues. That’s why we test all of our patients blood, to determine if in fact, they are being cause by low testosterone levels.
Low Testosterone is a deficiency that should be taken seriously. It requires a medical diagnosis through blood work and a physical examination. It should be noted, that while testosterone replacement therapy can eliminate all of the above symptoms, it is a replacement therapy not a stimulator. That means that testosterone levels only return to normal while taking the medication. Testosterone deficiency is a disorder that can affect 1 in 4 men over the age of 40 (Source: ABC)
