Are you a man suffering from fatigue, weakness, poor sleep, trouble concentrating, loss of muscle mass, and a decreased libido? You may have low testosterone levels.
It is more common than you may think. In fact, research suggest that one in four men over the age of 30 have low testosterone levels. Men with diabetes are particularly prone the to the condition. According to the American Diabetes Association, a man with type 2 diabetes is twice as likely to suffer from low T as a man without diabetes.
The good news is that, pending blood tests to confirm the problem, low T can be treated with a simple round of testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT.
It’s important to understand how low T therapy works. In particular, it concentrates on the importance of free testosterone. Low T is often defined as 300ng/dl (nanograms per deciliter) of total testosterone, and less than 5ng/dl of free testosterone.
Testosterone hits the blood stream in a couple of different forms: SBGH, or Sexual Binding Globulin, which is not available for use in the body; Estrogen, which is transformed from testosterone in a process called aromatization; and Free Testosterone, which is free to be used by the body and bind to receptors in the brain, muscle and other organs.
Some men report that their total testosterone level were fine, but still experienced symptoms of low T. This may be because of low free T levels — since the free T is literally free, it is available to be used in the body, as opposed to the other types of T, which are already occupied.
Low T therapy works to free the bound testosterone in your system (the estradiol that was transformed from testosterone and the SBGH), so that it becomes bio-available. The body is then allowed to use its own, naturally made T to treat the low T symptoms.
This simple process is very effective, and your eligibility (low free T levels) can be determined by a simple blood test. Don’t suffer the symptoms — let your body redistribute its own, natural solutions with a little help from our low T therapy.
