Low Testosterone & Erectile Dysfuction Treatment, North Denver
Low T is a condition in which a man has less than average levels of the male sex hormone, testosterone. A result of low testosterone is a reduced sex drive (libido) and/or erectile dysfunction (male impotence). Low T is not the only cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) -- in fact, the most common cause is reduced blood flow to the penis caused by high blood pressure, high cholesterol or hardening of the arteries.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone
- Hot flashes and sweating
- Reduced sex drive
- Depression, moodiness or irritability
- Fertility issues
- Body hair reduction
- Weight increase/increased body fat
- Fatigue/ excessive tiredness
Treatment for Low Testosterone & Erectile Dysfunction
Hormone replacement therapy through a variety of applications is the treatment for low testosterone. However, this treatment does not always cure erectile dysfuction. Further treatments for erectile dysfuction may include lifestyle changes (quitting smoking, losing weight), changing medications for other conditions (blood pressure medications, antidepressents, etc.), psychotherapy, medications, vacuum devices and surgery.
