Who Should I Talk to About Low Testosterone?
In everyone’s life, there comes a time for ‘the talk.’
Actually, it comes twice.
Just like that talk your father may have had with you as you reached puberty – as your voice deepened, your muscles grew, and your interest in what you thought might be sex skyrocketed – the changes you experience in your body as you grow older are similar, and they warrant a further bit of discussion on a familiar subject. That’s right, testosterone.
Testosterone, the same hormone that makes men out of boys, is also the hormone that keeps older men feeling like younger men. An abnormal decrease in testosterone production as you age can leave you feeling deflated, less confident, fatigued, higher in body fat, and less interested in sex. Whether it’s the weight room, the bedroom, or even the boardroom, testosterone plays a key role in making you perform and feel your most effective.
If you’re experiencing symptoms like these, it’s possible you have low testosterone. Up to 40% of men over the age of 45 (and many younger) experience hypogonadism, or low testosterone and it’s a very treatable condition.
So, with all that said, who do you talk to about low testosterone? Dad might not be a viable option this time around, despite his proficiency at fumbling through the ‘birds and the bees’ speech years ago. Well, you go to a professional. Better still, you go to a specialist. In this case, you go to a testosterone center.
Now here’s the thing: some of you might feel embarrassed or awkward about this subject. For whatever reason, many men (the author of this post included) are a bit gun-shy about asking doctors certain questions, especially when it involves their ‘man parts.’ But that’s the beauty of going to a specialist! There’s no awkward embarrassment, at all.
Nope, quite the reverse, when you go to a testosterone center – you go there to talk about testosterone. Do you feel embarrassed asking a barber for a haircut? Do you feel awkward when you ask for your oil to be changed by a mechanic that only does oil changes? OF COURSE NOT. That’s what they do, that’s why they’re there. The folks at the Testosterone Centers of Texas are experts in this field. They talk testosterone with their patients, day in and day out. They WANT to talk to you about testosterone therapy, and they have answers to your questions.
It’s a welcoming, friendly, and comfortable environment, and your questions will be answered and your levels will be measured in a remarkably quick visit. If you’re low and your symptoms warrant it, you could actually receive your first treatment that same visit! The magazines in the waiting room are actually things you like reading, and the staff won’t look at you differently for asking about low testosterone – that’s the whole purpose of the center!
So if you think you might be a candidate for testosterone therapy or simply want to learn more, contact TCT with questions or book your free consult.
