In order to determine if symptoms such as lethargy, fatigue, abnormal lab values, decreased libido, changes in mood, difficulty concentrating, as well as any loss of bone and muscle strength, are in fact the result of a testosterone deficiency, one must be thoroughly examined by a qualified medical professional. If, after blood tests, a full body work up, and a detailed medical history is recorded, a diagnosis of a testosterone deficiency is made, all hope is not lost.
Treating Hypogonadism with Body Systems Wellness
While preventing testosterone deficiencies, at least in some cases, may be beyond our control, there are several ways in which men can conduct themselves that may lower or reduce the chances of developing the condition.
One of the ways in which men can properly care for themselves is by maintaining a healthy weight. Though obesity is an issue that is all too familiar to the general public, it is especially important to keep in mind for men who wish to safeguard their health and welfare. Additionally, it is critical that men of all ages remain mindful of their stress levels, as elevated cortisol and other stress hormones can cause profound hormonal complications. It is also vital that males with and without hypogonadism partake minimally in alcohol, as this substance can contribute to low levels of testosterone, as well as become a dangerous tool for those suffering from depression related to a testosterone deficiency.
Dr. Shahen Kurestian, DC of Body Systems Wellness can help men suffering from hormone deficiencies through the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). When treating men with imbalanced amounts of testosterone, hormone replacement therapy is often recommended as a way to alleviate its debilitating side effects. Whether or not this modality is right for each patient, can only be determined after careful discussion with the medical professionals at Body Systems Wellness who are reviewing your clinical condition.
Located in Glendale, California, Dr. Kurestian’s team can assist with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, as well as other forms of testosterone replacement therapies. With a conviction to the therapeutic benefits of HRT, an understanding of the safety and protocols involved in the administration of these treatments, and a desire to provide support to patients in need, you are in good hands with Dr. Kurestian and his staff.
