We are part of a large aging population. If you are like me, though, aging doesn’t have to mean that we wither up and die. In fact, I am fairly certain that our generation looks, feels, and acts younger than the previous ones precisely because they aren’t ready to slink into the background. Luckily, treatments like testosterone therapy allow men to put a halt on some of the more insidious parts of the aging process.
What are these things that start happening that you may be facing? Probably the same thing I am. Are you more tired? Do you seem to be gaining weight, especially around your middle? Maybe, you don’t feel as strong as you used to. For sure the bedroom has changed. Even things as wide ranging as depression or lack of self confidence can have testosterone at its root. Well, that is exactly the sorts of things that testosterone therapy can help with.
Benefits of Testosterone Therapy
- Improved Sexual Function: Men see improvements in both libido and performance.
- Body benefits: Testosterone therapy helps increase muscle mass and decrease aches and pains. Who couldn’t use that? Plus, men report being able to sleep better.
- Mental Improvement: Of course you are going to be happier when you are having sex, feeling better physically, and getting good sleep but there is even more benefit. Testosterone therapy will help you focus, improve your mood, and feel better about yourself.
Yet, even with all the good news, it is important to get a lab work up and an evaluation by a qualified physician. Most of the possible side effects are those you might find in puberty…like a little acne. If there are major problems, they remain speculations or significant contradictory evidence exists. The physicians at Oceanside Urgent Care will be happy to help you decide if Testosterone therapy is right for you.
