My Husband Has Low-T. What Can Be Done?

My Husband Has Low-T. What Can Be Done?

Testosterone (T) is an androgen, which is a type of hormone that’s responsible for creating the male characteristics you love and treasure in your husband, including his ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Age and stress lower T levels, which can lead to disastrous consequences. Low-T affects about 40% of men over age 45

At Modern Wellness Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada, our team specializes in rectifying hormonal imbalances with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). If your husband doesn’t seem like his old self anymore, here’s what you need to know.

T keeps him healthy

Testosterone doesn’t just give your man the hair on his chest: It helps keep the hair on his head, too. If your husband is low in T, that hormonal imbalance affects every aspect of his physicality and mentality. Low T leads to a variety of troubling symptoms, such as:

Some men may even develop hot flashes when their T plummets. In fact, many of the problems that women associate with menopause affect men when they go through “andropause,” which is the period when their T levels drop. 

T keeps him sexy

If your romantic time has left you and your husband unsatisfied more and more frequently, low-T may be the problem. Testosterone is a vasodilator, which means it expands his blood vessels to increase healthy circulation. Good circulation is essential to achieving and maintaining an erection.

Since T also affects the way the brain works, your man may be feeling depressed or lack energy, too. A man’s mental state affects his ability to perform well sexually. He may also feel embarrassed by the changes in his body due to low-T, such as weight gain and muscle loss.

You can replace T

Fortunately, you and your husband don’t have to accept low-T as the norm. At Modern Wellness Clinic, we offer TRT to men whose T levels have dropped low enough to cause problems and symptoms.

Your husband’s therapy begins with a blood analysis of his T levels, plus a full investigation of his symptoms and a physical exam that helps identify any underlying medical conditions. Even if his T levels fall within the accepted “normal” range, if he has symptoms, then that T level isn’t normal for him.

We replace his T with customized injections that are based on his unique hormonal profile. Even though injections are more time-intensive and require regular blood tests, their specificity means that your husband will get relief from his symptoms, without getting too much T. Or too little.

Topical, oral, and insertable TRT forms take a one-size-fits-all approach. But that size may not be the right dose for your husband. The amount of T in injectable TRT, however, is based on the exact amount of T that your husband needs to feel like himself again. Regular injections are always based on a new blood test, too, because his needs may vary over time.
