Low testosterone is a condition that affects millions upon millions of men and it is a condition no man has to live with. While low testosterone itself is not a life-threatening condition it can lead to many far more serious conditions and can be a gateway to many far more serious ailments; not to mention it severely diminishes your quality of life. While many men suffer most have no idea what the problem is; far too often men will assume their downgraded life is simply due to age and the various stresses they encounter but in many cases the problem is far simpler; they're simply lacking in the hormone that makes them a man.
As we age our natural testosterone levels decline, this is a given and while the rate of decline will vary in each man and a healthy lifestyle will protect it a decline will occur nonetheless. Once your testosterone levels begin to fall they will do so gradually in most cases yet increasingly so as the years go by. In truth the condition and symptoms are often of a gradual occurrence but building overtime they can make for some very uncomfortable effects. Before we go too much further let's get this right out of the way; if you suffer from low testosterone there is only one thing on earth that is going to help you and that is testosterone; thankfully this powerful androgen is right at your fingertips if you'll simply make a slight effort.
The Effects of Low Testosterone:
If you suffer from low testosterone and are in need of treatment you will need a prescription and the only legal way to obtain one is through your doctor. Your doctor will perform blood work to evaluate your testosterone levels but there are some strong indicators that you can go by to determine if such a visit to the doctor is even necessary. There are numerous symptoms of low testosterone and they can affect your mental and physical state as well as your sexual function. While there are many symptoms you may not have them all; in-fact, generally most men will only need to show a couple to warrant investigation. Granted, if you do suffer from low testosterone and it is left unchecked the symptoms will only get worse and in time you may fall prey to every single one. The symptoms of low testosterone include:
- Decreased or Total Loss of Libido
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Decreases in Strength
- Decreases in Lean Muscle Tissue
- Increased Body-Fat (Commonly in the Abdominal Region)
- Decreased Energy
- Increased Irritability
- Lack of Mental Clarity and Focus
As you can see low testosterone is no joking matter and there is not a man on earth who could possibly enjoy its effects. If you show signs or symptoms in any degree comparable to the ones listed above you are urged to seek treatment; consult with your doctor and begin therapy as soon as you can.
Treating Low Testosterone:
To treat your low testosterone condition you will need testosterone replacement therapy, this should be a given but due to the nature in-which anabolic steroids are understood some physicians may tiptoe around it only exasperating the condition. Some physicians will prescribe specific SERM's or AI's in the early stages and in some cases hCG and while this may work most men will find direct testosterone therapy to be their only true saving grace. For direct therapy of a low testosterone condition we generally have four good choices:
Of the four quality treatment options their efficiency is in the order in-which they are listed with AndroDerm being the weakest and injectable testosterone being the absolute best. All four options have the ability to increase your testosterone levels but injectable testosterone is the only one that will do so to level you need with absolute assurance.
The Common Concern:
The common concern many low testosterone patients have revolves around safety; after all, to treat low testosterone you need the primary anabolic androgenic steroid testosterone. For years, decade's even anabolic steroids have taken a beating in popular culture due to the media hysteria that surrounds them and legislation that in many ways is full of holes and unanswered questions. Let's wade through the garbage and only look at the facts; no one has ever died from the use of exogenous testosterone; in-fact, there has never been a recorded death in history linked to the use of anabolic androgenic steroids. Further, testosterone is a hormone your body naturally produces and always has; in your case if you suffer from low testosterone it is now simply not producing enough to meet the body's demand. Once exogenous testosterone is applied, exogenous simply meaning supplied outside of the body rather than naturally produced the body makes no distinguishing difference. Your body will not reject the presence of exogenous testosterone any more than it is going to reject oxygen. If your body is not receiving an adequate amount of oxygen would you not seek out an oxygen replacement, would you not go to your doctor and ask for an oxygen tank? Of course you would and in treating low testosterone we can view the treatment in the same identical manner.
