The staff at Permian Basin Med Spa take pride in assisting patients take charge not only of their health and lifestyles but also towards achieving optimal health. If you are suffering from symptoms of Low Testosterone, chances are it’s not just one aspect of your life that is being negatively affected.

Low testosterone (Low-T) has been known to negatively affect people of all ages. If you’re suffering from a loss of energy, lack of stamina, sleep disturbances, weight gain, difficulty concentrating, loss of muscle mass and/or loss of libido then you may be suffering from low testosterone. If you suffer from a lack of energy during the day or if you lack the interest in sex then it may be that your testosterone levels are dangerously low. Testosterone therapy is a safe and effective option for getting your life back on track.

What Can Cause Low Testosterone?

The amount of testosterone in the human body gradually drops naturally. This natural decline normally starts after the age of 30 and continues (about 1% per year) throughout life. There are many other potential causes of low testosterone, including the following:

  • Injury
  • Chemotherapy for cancer
  • Metabolic disorders such as hemochromatosis
  • Dysfunction or tumors of the pituitary gland Medications, including opioids, hormones used to treat prostate cancer, and steroids such as prednisone.
  • Acute (short term) or chronic (long term) illness
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Chronic renal (kidney) failure
  • Obesity or extreme weight loss
  • Uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus
  • Aging
  • Excess estrogen

What Should My Testosterone Levels Be?

According to most labs, a Testosterone score between 250-350 is considered low while a Testosterone score of over 1400 is considered high. Our clinicians understand that just focusing on your testosterone levels alone opens the door to treating the patient in the wrong manner, as each patient’s ideal testosterone level can differ and there may be other issues at hand that could be causing Low Testosterone levels.
