Low Testosterone (Hypogonadism)

07Oct09
Hypogonadism or Low Testosterone is a common condition, estimated to affect more than 8 million men of all ages in the U.S. Signs and symptoms of low testosterone include reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depressed mood, loss of muscle mass and strength, and reduced bone density.

The diagnosis and treatment of Low Testosterone requires  medical history, physical examination, and blood tests for testosterone and other hormones. This can be obtained at an initial visit. Benefits of treatment include improved erections and sex drive, as well as an improved sense of well-being. Many men report  they feel “normal again” after their testosterone levels have been restored to the normal range.

1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?

2. Do you have a lack of energy?

3. Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?

4. Have you lost height?

5. Have you noticed a decreased enjoyment in life?

6. Are you sad and/or grumpy?

7. Are your erections less strong?

8. Have you noted a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?

9. Are you falling asleep after dinner?

10. Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?

If you can answer yes to more than half of these questions make an appointment with your primary care provider and discuss these symptoms.
