If you’re a healthy guy in your 30s and 40s, your testosterone will be declining—but that doesn’t mean you actually need treatment. “If you go in and say, ‘Well, you know, in the past 10 years I’ve gotten more tired, I’m having trouble keeping weight off…’ that’s simply not enough—it’s a natural phenomenon!” Jacques Baillargeon, ., an epidemiologist at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, told Men’s Fitness. However, if you’re a man north of 50, and you’re having difficulty getting it up, you’re feeling depressed, and you’re generally unhappy, you should seek out TRT.
“My family doctor basically told me that I had to live with my Low T problem which was not something I wanted to hear. He told me this for 2 years and in fact it made me so mad that I am no longer his patient. I decided to get checked at TCT. After a thorough evaluation, including checking my blood, they told me that Low T was not something that I had to live with and in fact, they have helped with my other medical problems. They are treating my blood pressure, cholesterol and erection problems as well. I’m in my late forties and finally feel like I have been “tuned-up”. I feel better than I have in years which allows me to focus less on me and more on the things I find important. Thank you to everyone who helped get me where I am, including my ex-doctor. Keep up the good work TCT!” — Todd J.
Testosterone is a hormone that is produced in large amounts by males (and a little bit in females), in the testes and adrenal glands. High testosterone levels are associated with sexual performance, reproductive function, muscle mass, hair growth, aggressive, competitive behaviors, and other such manly things. Testosterone levels tend to peak at the age of 40, and slowly decline from there. Luckily, there are many things you can do to increase testosterone, so if you feel like your T levels could use a boost, you've come to the right place.
