What is Testosterone?

 

Age Management Panama’s Testosterone Replacement program can get you back to feeling like your old self.

The testes are the primary production centers for male testosterone. Men need testosterone for not only determining sex characteristics, but also, as with females, for building muscle mass, increasing libido, and increasing bone mass to prevent frailty. Many men become androgen-deficient as they age, meaning they have reduced levels of testosterone. The symptoms of low testosterone interfere with your quality of life. Age Management Panama’s Testosterone Replacement program can get you back to feeling like your old self.

Do I Have Low Testosterone?

Testosterone deficiency as a result of aging, or andropause, may have any of the following symptoms or conditions:

  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Increased fat mass
  • Low hematocrit
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Diminished libido
  • Osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Changes in mood

Low testosterone levels are associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and carotid atherosclerosis.

Diabetes Care 2003 June;Vol. 36, No. 6: 20-30.

Aside from aging, low testosterone also can be caused by testicular failure due to a variety of genetic conditions as well as trauma or HIV/AIDS. The pituitary gland and hypothalamus send signals to the testes to produce testosterone; the lack of signals results in a condition called hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, which generally is caused by genetic defects.

Low testosterone levels increase cardiovascular disease. High testosterone levels protect against cardiovascular disease.

Diabetes Metab 1995 Vol. 21:156-161.

Low testosterone and high risk for cardiovascular disease go hand-in-hand. Supplemental testosterone for both men and women lowers the risk of a heart attack.
An enzyme called aromatase converts testosterone to estrogen, which changes the ratio of testosterone to estrogen. This enzyme is particularly significant in men with excessive body fat, because aromatase converts testosterone to estrogen within fat tissue. With more aromatase, overweight and obese men are at a high risk for low testosterone.

CONCERNED ABOUT “LOW T” ?

http://www.menonlyweightloss.com/low-t/

Are you worried about “Low T” or declining testosterone levels? If you suffer from this condition,IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT! The “Standard American Diet” (SAD) is emasculating American men every day. Our food supply is full of feminizing hormones which substantially contribute to this condition. Depending upon the quality of your diet, you may be ingesting the equivalent of several birth control pillseach week. Possibly each day!

Testosterone is a hormone made by your body and is responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of other sexual characteristics. The root of Low-T can often be traced to lifestyle factors, especially your diet (not how much you eat, but WHAT you eat). You know the saying, “You are, what you eat.” This is particularly true in the case of decreased testosterone levels.

It is estimated that Low Testosterone affects more than 15 million men in the U.S.

Some effects of low testosterone may include:

– Erectile Dysfunction

– Low/decreased sex drive

– Increased breast tissue (“man boobs”)

– Depression

– Growth and maturation of prostate and testicles

– Changes in muscle mass

– Changes in body fat distribution

– Loss of facial/body hair

– Unusually emotional

If you’re concerned about having “Low-T” you’ve come to the right place. DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT TAKING MEDICATION UNTIL YOU TALK TO US.

Our program NATURALLY improves testosterone levels and has no harmful side effects that the pharmaceutical synthetic hormones have. These include an increased risk of PROSTATE CANCER, decreased sperm count, swelling of your ankles, feet or body with or without HEART FAILURE. You can also experience SWELLING IN YOUR BREASTS! And if that’s not bad enough, Low-T drugs can also cause deadly BLOOD CLOTS and sleep apnea! Yikes!
