As men age their testosterone levels decline as a natural process of aging. Declining levels of testosterone is actually a health risk as low testosterone levels have been linked to premature death, type two diabetes, heart disease in many other illnesses.
It is very important that men assess their levels and do something about optimizing their testosterone levels if indeed they are suboptimal.
Even with our younger patients we see lower testosterone levels and that is why it is important to know where your levels are at any age.
As all men age they go through male menopause known as andropause. This basically refers to the declining levels of testosterone and the associated symptoms that occur in men.
Some men who are younger also are experiencing symptoms of low testosterone due to environmental factors. Unfortunately, we have in our environment substances known as endocrine disruptors that have affected hormone levels. These common endocrine disruptors can be found in plastics and other substances. The substances interfere with our bodies ability to produce hormones. They can affect many of the hormones in our body again making it imperative for us to check these levels. This can insure optimal health throughout our entire life.
