Low testosterone (low t) can cause a bevy of bad symptoms in older men. As age increases, so does your chances of suffering from the condition.
Those experiencing low testosterone levels may suffer hair loss, muscle loss, a lower sex drive, body fat increase, depression or even erectile dysfunction. Consequently, is has been discovered that low testosterone therapy has a beneficial effect on the sex lives of aging men.
According to a study completed through Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, older men treated with a testosterone gel experienced an increase in their sex drives, sexual activity and a decrease in issues concerning erectile dysfunction.
“In older men with low libido and low testosterone levels, improvements in sexual desire and activity in response to testosterone treatment were related to the magnitude of increases in testosterone and estradiol levels, but there was no clear evidence of a threshold effect,” stated the study’s author.
Sexual issues can be touchy subjects, but there’s no reason to suffer through any debilitating conditions. Atlanta Men’s Clinic can help diagnose and treat your low t symptoms and get you back to feeling more like yourself again.
