Just as certain health problems only affect women, some conditions are specific to men. One of the men’s health issues the Regenerative & Sports Medicine team sees most often is low testosterone.
The male sex hormone, testosterone, is important in the development of male sex organs. It also has many other functions, including bone and muscle development, hair growth, and good mental health.
Signs of low testosterone (low T) include:
You should consider having hormone testing at Regenerative and Sports Medicine if you notice multiple symptoms.
Two common men’s health conditions that could affect you are erectile dysfunction and prostate gland disorders.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is where a man can’t achieve or maintain his erection long enough for rewarding intercourse. Low T could be to blame for ED. However, there are many other possible causes, including problems with blood flow to the penis and psychological issues.
The prostate gland creates semen, the fluid that mixes with sperm when you ejaculate. Conditions like benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) are common, especially in older men. The enlarged prostate presses on the urethra, which carries urine from the bladder to the penis. This results in problems like urgency incontinence and frequent urination.
The treatment you need for your men’s health care depends on which condition you have. Some of the options available at Regenerative & Sports Medicine include:
There are multiple types of effective testosterone replacement therapy. The Regenerative & Sports Medicine team may recommend patches, gels, pellets, oral tablets, creams, or injections to restore healthy testosterone levels.
To determine which treatment you need for your men’s health condition, they perform a comprehensive health check. Then, they discuss your symptoms with you, look at your medical history, and conduct a physical exam. They may also take blood or urine samples for testing.
