Testosterone

Urologist Dr. Landon Trost shares the latest research on testosterone therapy for older men.  For most men, testosterone peaks during adolescence and early adulthood. Then, as men get older, testosterone levels gradually fall.  If testosterone drops below a certain level, it can cause symptoms.

In adult males, hypogonadism may alter certain masculine physical characteristics and impair normal reproductive function. Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Decrease in beard and body hair growth
  • Decrease in muscle mass
  • Development of breast tissue (gynecomastia)
  • Loss of bone mass (osteoporosis)

To see if testosterone therapy may be right for you, make an appointment to see your doctor and assess your symptoms. He or she can do a thorough evaluation and help you decide what, if any, treatment you may need.
