Low Testosterone occurs when there’s a hormone reduction in the body and although generally related to aging, it can occur in younger men in their 30’s or 40’s as well.
Accurately diagnosing Low T must always include a thorough examination of symptoms and complete blood work-up from a reputable lab. If you think you might be suffering from Low T but aren’t quite sure, we recommend taking the Aging Male Symptoms (AMS) Questionnaire.

Low Testosterone Treatment
Low Testosterone is primarily treated with Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), which in recent studies has shown to decrease the incidence of cardiovascular outcomes, such as heart attack or stroke, by 30%. Contrary to what you may have seen in the media, the preponderance of medical evidence clearly shows that treating Low T with TRT does NOT increase your risk of prostate cancer or cardiovascular disease. In fact, studies correlate TRT with improved cardiovascular and overall health5.
