Low Libido??

When we talk about hormone replacement therapy, what’s the first thougtht that comes to your mind? Estrogen, right?

Well, if you are a male, your answer should be Testosterone. Here is a copy of an article from Medscape Family Medicine, WebMD :

Advances in the Treatment of Low Testosterone

As men age, their testosterone levels steadily decrease. This decline is a normal part of aging and is not a problem in itself. However, in a significant percentage of men, decline in testosterone has been found to be associated with a constellation of symptoms, including loss of libido and sexual function, decreased energy and sense of well-being, increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, osteoporosis, and loss of body hair. Recent research has found associations between low testosterone levels and a number of life-threatening chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome.

Men can get their testosterone tested and if low, can consider replacement as well.
