Testosterone plays a critical role in maintaining youthful neurological structure, alleviating depression, as well as inducing fat loss in those who are unable to reduce body weight regardless of diet and exercise.
Recent studies have demonstrated that low testosterone in men is strongly associated with metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and an almost 50% increase in mortality over a seven year period.
Restoring testosterone to youthful ranges in men can result in an increase in insulin sensitivity as well as a reduction in total cholesterol, fat mass, waist circumference and pro-inflammatory cytokines associated with atherosclerosis, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome. Testosterone therapy can also significantly improve sexual desire and improve functional capacity.

What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone, a molecular messenger that travels through your bloodstream to act on many organs and tissues in your body, including your brain, muscles, fat, bones and sexual organs.

Testosterone and the brain
Your thinking abilities and general sense of well-being, including your mood, energy level and sense of vitality, and sexual drive or libido are all affected by testosterone.
Testosterone and muscleHover over to see the effects of Testosterone
Testosterone and muscle
Testosterone creates muscle cells and causes them to grow in size and strength.
Testosterone and fatHover over to see the effects of Testosterone
Testosterone and fat
Testosterone has been shown to reduce body fat, particularly in the midsection and chest. The result is an improvement in lean body mass.
Testosterone and bonesHover over to see the effects of Testosterone
Testosterone and bones
Testosterone helps prevent the normal bone destruction of aging and actually improves bone density. This reduces the risk of osteoporosis and fractures.
Testosterone and the heartHover over to see the effects of Testosterone
Testosterone and the heart
Testosterone can inﬂuence cardiovascular risk factors indirectly through its effect on the amount of fat in your body, and there is evidence it benefits the heart directly. It may help open the coronary arteries, and possibly improve cardiac function in people with heart disease and heart failure.
Testosterone and sexHover over to see the effects of Testosterone
Testosterone and sex
Low testosterone can reduce your ability to have satisfying sex. Lack of sex drive and erectile dysfunction are sexual problems that can result from low testosterone. If low testosterone is the cause, treating it can help.
Do I Have Low Testosterone?
Because testosterone affects so many organs and tissues, low levels are associated with many signs and symptoms throughout the body.
Symptoms you may experience but cannot be adequately measured include:
Irritability or unexplained negative mood
Loss of motivation
Anxiety or increased pessimism
Increased fatigue, low energy or diminished sense of well-being
Difﬁculty concentrating, lack of focus, forgetfulness and loss of memory
Feeling that you have lost your edge or passed your peak
Insomnia or poor sleep
Lacking desire (low libido) or pleasure in sex
Decreased ability to perform sexually
Erections that are less strong
None of these signs or symptoms are specific to testosterone deﬁciency and many are hard to differentiate from normal aging. Our role is to evaluate any signs or symptoms of low testosterone, and then to see how they correlate with your hormone levels.
