As men age they begin to notice differences in their day to day life from work-related performance to daily energy levels. These changes can be attributed to a variety of factors that are common for anyone aging. Like women, men also experience what is known as age-related hormone level deficiencies. This includes testosterone deficiency, commonly known as “Low T.” Low T is a hot topic for males today. Beginning as early as the age of 30, testosterone production can begin to decrease, and men lose testosterone through a process called andropause.
Another way to look at it: Low T is the equivalent to male menopause. If you believe you are experiencing Low T or male menopause, contact MetroMD today to learn if the cause if low testosterone levels and discuss your treatment options. Our team will take a look at your current testosterone levels via a simple blood test in order to determine if there is a testosterone deficiency.
