A new year and some new goals.
You have plans for more travel, more adventure, more time with those you love the most. Each year, however, you fear that you have even less energy, and sometimes less desire, than the year before.
If you have decided to set some aggressive goals for yourself for 2017 you may need some extra help. If, for instance, you are looking for more energy so that you can achieve your 2017 fitness goals you might decide to visit one of the hormone treatment clinics and see if they have any testosterone therapy options for you.
Although many males think of testosterone therapy options to help them rebound from a low sex drive, there are actually many about indicators of low testosterone levels as well:
- Hair loss
- Lack of energy and fatigue
- Increased body fat
- Decreased muscle mass
- Decreased bone mass
- Mood changes
Nearly 40% of men above the age of 45 have low testosterone. In fact, it is estimated that as many as 5 million American men have low testosterone levels that might benefit from testosterone therapy options. Clinical research indicates that normal testosterone levels fall somewhere between 300 and 1,200 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dl). These levels, of course fluctuate throughout the day and often vary from man to man. One of the most common reasons that men see a drop in their testosterone levels is age. In fact, these levels typically decrease by 1% a year after the age of 30. Given that the proportion of Americans over age 65 is expected to top 20% by the year 2050, an increase of 7% from today’s numbers, testosterone treatments are becoming more and more common.
As life expectancy continues to increase it should come as no surprise that more and more Americans are looking for ways to stay as active as possible for as long as possible. The beginning of a new year is a perfect time to see if you are getting as much from life as you possibly can. Making an appointment at a hormone replacement therapy clinic can help you make the most of the 2017 and many more years to come.
