Signs of Low Testosterone in Men
Were you aware that of men ages 50-70, 30% of them suffer from low testosterone. That number increases significantly with men ages 70-80, 70% of them suffer from this. 4-5 million American males with low testosterone otherwise known as Andropause. Unfortunately only 3% of these men discuss this with their physician and of those 3% only 5-10% actually receive treatment or testosterone therapy.
The main reasons these numbers are what they are is there is little knowledge or awareness of how common low testosterone is. There is a fear of hormones and cancer (primarily prostate cancer) and the complex and restrictive interpretation of blood lab tests. The problem compounds when Physicians rarely diagnose low testosterone.
