JOHNSON CITY, Tenn., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Testosterone is the most important metabolic hormone for men and many men do not realize that it affects much more than just libido. Tri-Cities Health http://tcmenshealth.com/ strives to educate men to the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy.
Findings reported in the Wall Street Journal in December 2009 reveal that men with low testosterone tend to be tired and grumpy, have less energy, less strength, in addition to less interest in sex than they used to have. They also have a high risk of memory problems, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and are more likely to have cardiovascular disease.
Usually you think of osteoporosis as being a women's disease however, Harvard Health Publications reported in 2009 that low testosterone (also called hypogonadism) in males can lead to weakening bones. There has been an increase just recently in the studies done on new testosterone replacement therapies as researchers are now looking for ways to combat the skeletal issues caused by low testosterone in men.
Recently, older men over the age of 65 have been the focus of scrutiny when it comes to the effects that low testosterone has on overall health. Older men who have low testosterone levels often suffer from anemia, impaired thinking, difficulty walking even just a short distance, less interest in sex, and reduced vitality.
