What causes low testosterone?

Through the natural process of aging, men experience a loss of testosterone. As testosterone levels decrease, it can lead to an array of symptoms.

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

Low testosterone is linked to many symptoms, which can vary in severity. These include low libido, erectile dysfunction, brain fog, fatigue, hair loss, decreased muscle mass, depression, and more. These symptoms can cause a man’s quality of life to decline significantly.

What is a normal level of testosterone in a man?

A man will normally have total testosterone levels that range from 350-1000 nano-grams per deciliter. However, there is also a measure known as free testosterone, which encompasses the number of hormones that are active in the body at any given time. In some cases, a man may have normal total testosterone levels but suffer from Low T symptoms if his free testosterone levels are low.

Testosterone levels between 350 ng/dL and 1,100 ng/dL are referred to as “normal” range.  This is a wide range and their is a lot of variability among individuals.  Men who once had a peak testosterone level of 1000 ng/dl will likely experience severe symptoms at 500ng/dl. Therapeutic levels, the levels that allow for optimal well being, are generally on the higher end and not found in many men over the age of 40-50. In fact, men in their 30s and 40s are often deficient and feel the results of sub optimal levels and low T.

How is testosterone therapy done?

Testosterone therapy can be done using an array of methods. These options include a skin patch, which is applied to the skin once a day, gels, which are absorbed through the skin, a mouth patch, or injections and pellets. Dr. Bloy will work with you to determine which form of treatment best fits your needs, lifestyle, and budget.

What are the advantages of testosterone injections versus gels and patches?
The proper method of testosterone delivery for you is a matter for your physician to determine; however, many find that some gels tend to be messy and less convenient than other treatment modalities. In addition, there can be a risk of unintentional transmittal to children or others with whom you may have physical contact with the use of gels. Testosterone patches can create a significant rash at the site of application, or do not stick well, especially in the summer months. Experience has shown that gels and patches may require dosage adjustments to obtain medically appropriate blood concentrations and some patients may never absorb enough testosterone from gels or patches to improve symptoms. These modalities often have a higher conversion to less desirable hormones in the process of transfer through the skin. Intramuscular testosterone injections are a good choice for some men because of their more reliable clinical effectiveness and convenience.
We find testosterone pellet therapy to be the most consistent, effective, long lasting and reliable form of replacement therapy, but some men do not prefer this method and elect to receive testosterone injections instead. Testosterone injections are the next best choice. We offer weekly injection therapy customized to meet your individual needs and treat your deficiency.

What is the difference between testosterone therapy and performance-enhancing steroids?

While some athletes may use anabolic steroids which contain testosterone, these steroids often contain very high doses and are mixed with other substances. Testosterone therapy only contains natural levels of hormones, making it a safe and effective treatment for Low T.

What are the benefits of testosterone therapy?

Undergoing Low T Therapy can positively impact many aspects of a man’s life. Because low T can cause an array of health issues such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, osteoporosis, and more, testosterone is a major player in a healthy body. Healthy levels of testosterone are also linked to a longer life expectancy in men.

My wife and I had been married for 25 years when we heard about Dr Bloy’s pellet hormone replacement therapy from our friends. Both the husband and wife were being treated and we heard a lot of great results that they were getting. I mean they were raving about it!  I knew my wife definitely wanted to check out the program based on the results her friend had and the years of battling the lack of hormones. For me, I was interested in doing some research first because I wanted to know if it was really safe. After doing some research, I really wanted to know what our hormone levels were. So, we called Dr Bloy’s office and we both got lab slips emailed to us to get our blood drawn and we made appointments to review the results 10 days later. We then met with Fawn, Dr Bloy’s nurse practitioner to weigh in and check our Body Mass Index (BMI). Then we were off to the private room to review the results, and together we discovered that my wife’s hormone levels were almost non-existent. She wasn’t surprised at all. My testosterone was normal based on age (49) but then they explained what “normal” meant in regards to testosterone. It meant my body was not operating at full efficiency or operating how it could be.  The next step was to discuss our symptoms. Fawn worked with each of us together and then separately to get unbiased answers to some basic questions to ensure we felt comfortable talking about any issues. The questions were really helpful because Fawn helped me uncover areas that I didn’t really realize I had symptoms in. For me, I really wanted to increase my energy. I travel a lot for work and also have a stressful job. So, high work performance and feeling well is really critical for me to meet the requirements of my job. I was also looking to eliminate that tired afternoon feeling that came with some difficulty focusing and getting my work done. I realized I also had started to feel some aches and pains when I woke up every morning and was having difficulty sleeping or staying asleep. I knew I was only getting about 6 hours of sleep every night and lacked the REM cycles I really needed based on the reports on my sleep app on my Iwatch. My weight was also above where I wanted it to be and I wanted to lose weight and increase my lean muscle mass. So, for me, I figured I would try it to combat those things and if my sexual performance and weight loss improved then it would be worth it.  For my wife, she wanted to increase her sexual desire, increase lubrication, reduce her mood swings and lose some weight too.  So, we decided to do the pellets that day! My wife’s results were amazing in all areas! We both noticed a difference within a week or so. For me the energy levels went way up and I no longer have to rely on as much caffeine in the afternoon when I feel like i should take a nap instead of working. My thinking clarity went back to normal, I was able to think clearly again, and I started to lose some weight. My desire to work out has increased. I now sleep 8 hours most nights and I have my REM sleep back! The attraction I had to my wife was already great but with the testosterone levels of an 18 year old, my attraction increased tremendously and it was energizing…not to mention the frequency of sex went up! My sexual performance increased too and together we are really feeling the benefits. I can’t imagine life without my pellets now and my wife feels the same!  We love your team of professionals and enjoy having our own personal experts helping us. Your husband and wife team of Fawn and Del are amazing! Thank you Dr. Bloy for changing our lives!
