Men’s Aging and Testosterone

As men age and their testosterone and HGH levels decline, sexual desire decreases and men can experience symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction including weak or soft erections, loss of spontaneous erections, loss of intimacy and pleasure having sex. Testosterone is essential to firm, hard erections and low levels of male sex hormone can have a direct negative impact on a marriage or personal relationship. HGH plays a role along with testosterone in creating desire and feelings of intimacy. Both hormones help men maintain strong hard muscle, distribute fat properly throughout the body, and keep hair and skin youthful looking. If you think you may have a hormone deficiency or imbalance, get tested, diagnosed, and consider getting prescribed testosterone as part of a medically supervised TRT program.

Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone

During Andropause, men low in testosterone may also be low in Human Growth Hormone. HGH works together in a man’s body to build muscle mass, provide energy, stamina, endurance, and strength. Men taking both HGH and Testosterone find an even greater increase in sex drive, ability to exercise, burn fat and lose weight, and feel more motivated and energized. 

Testosterone Safety

At this time, the FDA has not concluded that FDA-approved testosterone treatment increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, or death. Patients should not stop taking prescribed testosterone products without first discussing any questions or concerns with their health care professionals. Health care professionals should consider whether the benefits of FDA-approved testosterone treatment are likely to exceed the potential risks of treatment. The prescribing information in the drug labels of FDA-approved testosterone products should be followed.
