What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

The adrenal glands produce testosterone, a hormone found in both men and women. Testosterone helps you sustain healthy bone density; regulate fat distribution, muscle mass, and strength; and monitor your blood distribution and sex drive.  

While present in both men and women, testosterone levels are eight times higher in men. It determines a man’s appearance and behavior.

As you age, your testosterone levels decrease. This can lead to emotional and physical complications, including:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low sex drive
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Low semen volume
  • Loss of bone and muscle mass
  • Mood swings

Dr. Toth offers testosterone injections and BioTE® bioidentical hormone pellets should your levels go below the healthy amount.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Also known as impotence, erectile dysfunction occurs when a man is unable to sustain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse.

It’s most commonly found in men over the age of 65 and is caused by any of the following:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease

Why is the prostate essential?

The prostate is a gland that secretes a vital fluid that contributes to the creation and health of your semen. This walnut-sized gland is an integral part of the male reproductive system. Damage to your prostate can cause serious health complications.

Over 30 million men suffer from various prostate conditions, including:

  • Enlarged prostate
