LOW TESTOSTERONE AND YOU

Low Testosterone... What is it?

A decrease in the production of the male hormone Testosterone from the Testicles.

Explanation of Imbalance of Homeostasis

Normally, the body has a Testosterone level of somewhere between 300ng/dl and 800ng/dl. A diagnosis will result when this level drops below 300ng/dl. The body begins to slow down because of the decrease in testosterone, a hormone which is linked to energy, strength, and sex drive. This can be caused by factors such as old age, Testicular Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Obesity, etc.

Symptoms

These include but are not limited to: decrease in energy, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, decrease in strength.

Treatments

Injection of Testosterone- Increase the levels of testosterone through a direct injection


Digestion through Testosterone Pills- Pills are medically prescribed to patients which function to increase the level of testosterone in the male's body
