Texas Men’s Health Group Brings TRT and Hormone Peptide Therapy to McAllen-area Men
According to recent Census data, the average age of a man in the McAllen area is approximately 35 years old. Nearly 1/3 of the population fall between the ages of 30 and 49. Coincidentally, this is about when many men start to experience the symptoms of aging that come along with Low Testosterone Levels, or Low-T.
What Is Testosterone and What Does It Do?
Testosterone is the major sex hormone found in males and is produced by the testes. (In women, the ovaries also produce Testosterone, but in significantly lower amounts.) Testosterone plays a major role in the development of male sex characteristics during and after puberty, including:
- The deepening of the voice
- Growth of facial and pubic hair
- Maintaining your sex drive (or “libido”)
- Production of sperm
- Reducing impotence and erectile dysfunction (ED)
Just because Testosterone has humble origins in your nether-regions, don’t think that is its only job. In fact, Testosterone plays a big role in several of the body’s functions and can impact your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Physically: Testosterone can reduce your body fat while improving your muscle density and strength. It also improves your bone density and your immune system and helps you recover quicker from injury and illness. It can even improve your skin tone and circulation.
Mentally: For your brain, Testosterone can help improve your cognitive function, memory, and even help you sleep better. Early research indicates that it may help you maintain your brain cells as you get older.
Emotionally: Testosterone helps improve your mood, provides increased energy by increasing red blood cell production, and can even reduce symptoms of depression.
All this is why it is so important to monitor and maintain a normal T-Level as you get older.
What Happens to My Testosterone Levels as I Get Older?
Testosterone production in men begins as early as the first trimester in the womb and continues to increase through puberty and into early adulthood. It reaches its peak production around the late 20’s and early 30’s. But after that, it’s downhill as production starts to decrease by about 1-2% every year.
While this reduction in Testosterone Level is considered “normal,” a surprising number of men have a much more rapid decline. In medical terms, this is called “male hypogonadism” (or Low-T for the rest of us), and it affects up to 40% of men over the age of 45!
What Happens to Men with Low-T?
Symptoms of Low Testosterone vary for everyone based on a lot of factors – age being the most prominent one. But regardless of how many miles you may have on your odometer, Low-T isn’t something you want to mess around with. It can have several bad consequences, including:
- Lower sex drive (libido)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decreased sense of well-being
- Depressed mood
- Difficulties with concentration and memory
- General fatigue
- Increased irritability
- Loss of muscle
- Increased body fat
- A decrease in hemoglobin and mild anemia
- A decrease in body hair
- A decrease in bone density (osteoporosis)
- Man Boobs (“Gynecomastia”)
That’s why Testosterone Replacement Therapy, or TRT, is becoming one of the fastest-growing treatment options in Men’s Health. And Texas Men’s Health Group is your one-stop source for TRT and Growth Hormone Peptide therapy in the McAllen area.
