When thinking of low bone density, some may think of a speciific person who is over the age of 70 or 80. It is important to be aware of the fact that low testosterone can cause low bone density while men are much younger? Having low bone density is often over looked as not being a huge deal, when in actuality it causes so many other issues in any day to day life. Men who have low testosterone are at a greater risk of having low bone density which can eventually lead to osteoporosis. These are not issues that many people want to deal with at any age, especially in their 50’s or 60’s.
Activities that could be affected by low bone density include walking, running, working out, or going on about regular day activites. One may feel weak, tired, and sore but not know why. A lot of people excuse it as ageing or the weather. What if all of these problems could be solved just by getting testosterone levels checked and developing a hormone therapy replacement plan if needed?
Testosterone is a crucial part of overall health. It maintains red blood cells, helps produce and preserve muscle mass, and is a large part to how people are feeling every day.
Before going to a general practitioner for medication, consider meeting with us and getting levels checked first! It is not always wise to rely on medications when there are other ways to get to feeling the best. For questions about this process and setting up a meeting with us, please give us a call!
