Testosterone deficiency (aka hypogonadism) is a common syndrome among men. Because it is associated with aging, its imprtance is often disregarded as “You’re just getting old”. But this attitude is dangerous!
Testosterone deficiency – if left untreated – can greatly harm your health and wellbeing. Dr. Citrin is one of the few doctors who knows how to correctly diagnose and treat testosterone deficiency.
Studies have shown that men begin losing testosterone at a rate of 3% to 10% per year beginning at age 30. Medical research has defined the male equivalent to menopause as andropause. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men may include fatigue, lack of mental clarity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection.
Hormonal treatments for men can be expensive, require daily consumption and in many cases need to be carefully timed with their partner’s sexual needs. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone treatment that gives sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day for four to six months without any drastic “roller coaster” blood testosterone levels.
