Lower testosterone is one result of alcohol abuse and alcoholism. Alcoholism can disrupt the messages that are sent from the brain to the testicles, directing testosterone production. Drinking too much alcohol can also directly block the testicles from making testosterone. Long-term alcohol abuse leads to cirrhosis, a serious scarring of the liver. Cirrhosis also causes low testosterone.
If someone is aware that they have liver disease, they've probably already seen many different doctors.Those doctors may not have suggested the potential benefits of hormone replacement therapy. If there are any questions developed about this process, we encourage people to come in and meet with us. This will give us the opportunity to meet with each individual, go over their health history, and see if there is any way that we can help them feel a little bit better with our hormone replacement therapy.
