Have you been experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, depression, irritability, low sex-drive, or sexual dysfunction? If so, low testosterone may be to blame. Low testosterone or “Low-T” affects more than 13 million men in the U.S., over the age of 45. It is important that men understand what happens when testosterone levels begin to decline and what can be done to restore balance.
For a long time, men were not concerned with lower levels of hormones because there was little information on it. The majority of men simply attribute symptoms of hormonal imbalance to getting older or a mid-life crisis.
“Male patients are sometimes wary about first coming to my office, but they are all relieved to find out that they don’t have to live this way anymore. Male patients soon realize that by using customized wellness programs, consisting of bioidentical hormones, fitness and nutritional guidance, optimal health is well within reach”, says West Chicago bioidentical hormones expert Dr. Michelle Schultz.
Men should not be afraid or embarrassed to confront their doctor about symptoms. There are many treatment options available that have been proven to help mitigate symptoms in men.
