Ladies, you know that you and your friends experience many health symptoms as you age because you discuss them all the time; however did you know that men do too? Sure, they may not be as vocal about it, but you have seen the changes in them due to the symptoms of low testosterone whether you realize it or not.
Your husband is tired all the time and losing his motivation and zest for life; he is thinking about retiring early; he is having difficulty concentrating and short term memory loss; and he has gained that extra weight around his mid-section. He doesn’t feel like playing with the kids when he gets home anymore and just lies on the couch until bedtime. He also has lost interest in intimacy and it is affecting your relationship.
Optimal Testosterone Benefits Male Health
Optimal testosterone levels positively affect muscle tone, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, the immune system, weight, moods, bone health, skin, libido, sperm production, sleep, as well as heart, liver and brain health.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone
There are several key symptoms that indicate that a man has a testosterone deficiency. Here are some of the most common symptoms of low testosterone:
Lack of initiative, assertiveness and drive
Decline in sense of well-being and self-confidence
Depressed, irritable moods
Increased body fat around the waist
Decline in sexual ability
Decreased mental sharpness
Lessened stamina and endurance
Loss of muscle mass, strength, and tone
Gynecomastia (enlarged breasts)
Often men visit their doctor complaining of the symptoms of low testosterone, but because their blood work is in the normal range, they are overlooked for treatment. Instead, doctors may prescribe drugs such as antidepressants, sleep medications, or cholesterol lowering drugs that don’t solve the underlying cause of his symptoms. It’s important to take both lab tests and clinical symptoms into consideration when evaluating for a testosterone deficiency.
Many doctors measure total testosterone levels rather than free testosterone and secondly, testosterone levels are compared to those of men within the same age group. If a man is in his 60s, he doesn’t want the testosterone levels of a 60 year old. He wants optimal testosterone levels that will resolve his symptoms and allow him to feel his best.
How You Can Get Your Husband Back
Now you are wondering, how can I get back the man I married? The solution is to restore his testosterone levels back to normal with bioidentical testosterone. He needs to replace what is missing – it’s as simple as that. Bioidentical testosterone is identical to the testosterone made by the human body.
In addition to a drop in testosterone levels, men also experience a decline in thyroid hormone production as they age. This can bring on symptoms like low energy, memory loss, weight gain, constipation and more. It is important to also check thyroid function, and again, symptoms of hypothyroidism are key.
