For men suffering the symptoms of low testosterone whose blood levels also appear to be low, there are replacement therapies available. Hormone replacement comes in many different forms including skin patches, gels, mouth patches, and injections and implants. There isn’t any pill to take every day because oral testosterone has been shown to have negative effects on the liver.
Regardless of his patient’s choice of method, Dr. Hernandez can help men with low testosterone regain a sense of normalcy. Replacing testosterone can increase patient’s sex drive, alleviate erectile dysfunction, increase energy levels, reduce hair loss, help with concentration, depression and mood.
