Hormone replacement therapy treats testosterone deficiency

Hormone replacement therapy can help those experiencing testosterone deficiency in Atlanta, GA

Hormone replacement therapy is available to help those suffering from testosterone deficiency.  Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that involves supplementing patients with low hormone levels with replacement hormones. There are thousands of people across the world that are suffering from hormone deficiencies who may be completely unaware of it. Testosterone deficiency is a very common hormone deficiency that is found in both men and women.

Testosterone is a steroid that is produced in both men’s and women’s bodies. Testosterone production in men takes place in the testicles and is a key player in regulating sperm production, mood, muscle mass, and sex drive. In women, testosterone is made in the adrenal glands and in the ovaries. This crucial hormone in women also regulates mood, muscle mass, and sex drive.

In men around age 30, testosterone production will drastically decline. Women who go through menopause will also experience a drop in testosterone levels. However, these natural aging processes aren’t the only reason for testosterone deficiency. Chronic stress, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, high blood pressure, and obesity may all cause a significant drop in testosterone levels. For those experiencing testosterone deficiency, hormone replacement therapy is a great option.
