To help you better understand the potential benefits of Low-T treatment in Pittsburgh, take a moment to learn about how testosterone works.

Testosterone is a natural hormone, part of the class of androgens, found in greater quantities in men. It takes three forms in the blood: as albumin, sex hormone binding globulin and free testosterone. This hormone assists with reproductive development as well as regulation of processes in the body. Some of the positive effects of testosterone include lower body fat, muscle building, increased libido, improved mental function, increased bone strength, improved mood and energy levels, and enhanced sexual pleasure.

As men age testosterone production decreases gradually. Some men experience significant drops in testosterone levels that results in an impact on mental and physical health. This decline can mean lower energy levels, strength, mental acuity, sexual desire and muscle mass. Fortunately, Low-T treatment can be used to help mitigate these symptoms.
