If you have type 2 diabetes, you are twice as likely to suffer from low testosterone as a man without diabetes.
- Among men with low testosterone levels, 70% reported ED and 63% reported low sex drive.
- Did you know that over 13 million men suffer from low testosterone and 90% remain untreated?
First, you need to identify your symptoms.
The symptoms of low testosterone can include diminished interest in sex, erectile dysfunction (ED), reduced lean body mass, depressed mood and lack of energy. If you are experiencing diminished interest in sex, ED or multiple symptoms together such as lack of desire to have sex and lack of energy you should talk to your doctor.
Low testosterone can be easily identified and treated. As a starting point, take the Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male (ADAM) questionnaire below. This may be helpful in assessing your likelihood of having low testosterone.
Once you have identified your symptoms, a simple blood test can confirm that you have low Testosterone.
Defy Medical can check your testosterone levels with a simple blood test which can be performed anywhere in the US. If you do have low testosterone it can be easily treated. There are several treatment options available such as gels, patches or injections that increase the amount of testosterone in your body.
