Testosterone Therapy in Utah

Low testosterone affects millions of males over the age of 30. Treat it with Testosterone Replacement TherapyTestosterone is a hormone produced by the human body, though much more abundantly and significantly in males. This hormone contributes to a wide range of functions that contribute not only to mens’ outward appearances, but also their overall well-being. Unfortunately though, natural testosterone production starts to slowly decrease for men after the age of 30, dipping at a rate of around 1 percent per year, but sometimes as much as 3 percent.

Without adequate testosterone, men often experience symptoms such as reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, depression, difficulty focusing, and a decreased sense of well-being. Muscle mass and strength can decrease as well, while abdominal fat will often increase. Declining and imbalanced hormone levels are also associated with many age-related conditions in men including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, loss of muscle and bone mass, and fatigue.

There are often underlying, identifiable and treatable causes of these problems. The decline and imbalance of important hormones, especially testosterone, are usually to blame.

Because of this, testosterone therapy has proven to bring tremendous value to the day-to-day lives of middle-aged men.
