Male Hormone Replacement Therapy Charleston
Male aging begins much earlier than most men realize. Testosterone levels start to decline in our late twenties and continues well into our golden years. This decline in testosterone levels becomes more evident in middle-age when some men experience what has become known as andropause, or “male menopause.” This hormone imbalance in men is characterized by a number of distressing symptoms, such as fatigue, muscle loss, increased body fat, sleeplessness, night sweats, irritability, depression, low libido and erectile dysfunction.
