Low Testosterone

image56

As men age, it is natural for a slight decline in testosterone. Some individuals may have more rapid decline due to andropause. Low testosterone levels cause symptoms like feeling lethargic and loss of interest in sex.  It occurs when your testosterone drops to a level not within range for your age group. 

Testosterone plays an important role in the maintenance of muscle, bone strength, and a healthy sex drive. It is important in maintaining your overall health, so if you aren’t feeling yourself lately, low testosterone may the cause for that.
