Additionally, men experience gender-specific health issues related to their reproductive system, including prostate cancer, prostate enlargement, low testosterone, and erectile dysfunction.
Is low testosterone a men’s health concern?
Testosterone levels naturally decline as men age, at the rate of about 1% per year after age 30. Not everyone with low testosterone levels experiences symptoms, but the most common signs and symptoms of low testosterone include:
Decreased Energy Levels
Decreased Muscle Mass
If you experience the symptoms of low testosterone, schedule a consultation at MediSpa At Choto for lab work to determine if you have abnormal levels of testosterone and could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy.
What is testosterone replacement therapy?
If lab testing of your blood reveals low testosterone levels, you may be a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). TRT involves weekly injections of testosterone into the muscles. Testosterone replacement therapy results vary, but may include:
Increased Bone Density
Increased Muscle Mass
Improved Sexual Function
Why is erectile dysfunction a men’s health concern?
Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is the inability to obtain or maintain an erection to have intercourse. It may also cause reduced sexual desire.
While having trouble maintaining an erection once in a while is nothing to worry about, if erectile dysfunction is frequent, it can affect your self-confidence and cause relationship problems.
Erectile dysfunction can also signify underlying health conditions and is a risk factor for heart disease.
How is erectile dysfunction treated?
Erectile dysfunction is often treated with prescription medication. MediSpa At Choto offers Cialis® and Viagra® prescriptions as potential treatments.
The practice also offers amino power and vitamin B12 injections to increase energy and fat burning and secrete human growth hormone to support new muscle growth and blood flow.
