Low Testosterone (Hypogonadism)
Male Hypogonadism is a condition in which the body does not produce enough of the testosterone hormone; this may significantly reduce the quality of life since testosterone is a critical hormone for sexual, cognitive, and body function and development.1 This condition affects an estimated 4 to 5 million men in the Unites States, although it may occur at any age, it is especially very common in older males. Studies suggest Hypogonadism in adult men is often under-diagnosed and untreated and only 5% of hypogonadal men receive an appropriate treatment. There are many treatment options available to treat this condition such as life style modification, reduce estrogen levels, increase testicular output of testosterone, and testosterone supplementation. If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms, you may want to consult your physician for further evaluation and treatment options.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or Impotence is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection for satisfactory sexual activity. Experts have estimated around 30 million men in the united states suffer from ED.2 Studies shows complete impotence increases from 5% among men 40 years of age to 15% among men 70 years and older.3 Many factors may contribute in causing ED such as chronic illnesses, depression, aging, poor circulation, medication side effects, low testosterone, alcoholism, smoking, substance abuse, and nerve or spinal cord damage.2 There are many options to treat this condition at any age, ask your physician what is best for you.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlarged prostate and not cancerous. The prostate goes through two main growth periods as a man ages, first occurs in puberty and second phase begins around age 25 and it continues to growth as men age, and BPH can occur during this phase. Urinary incontinence and urgency, weak urine flow, dripping of urine, and difficulty urinating are the most common complication with BPH.4 There are many treatments for BPH; ask your health care provider for what suits you the most.
Somatopause which is very common among middle aged and elderly people, refers to a decline in the blood levels of growth hormone (GH) somatotropin and another hormone that GH converts into, called IGF-I for somatomedin.5,6 Deficiency in these hormones are associated with loss of vitality, muscle mass, mental and physical function as well as increasing frailty, fat mass and bad cholesterol (LDL), and cardiovascular complications.7 Many studies have revealed that somatopause can be treated with growth hormones and those abnormal features can be resolved as well. Consult with your specialist for possible solutions.
