Roughly 25% of men between the ages of 30 and 45 and close to 40% of men over 45 have abnormally low testosterone. The rate of testosterone deficiency jumps significantly in men over the age of 65.
The toll of low testosterone

Testosterone replacement therapy can help you get back on track. The first step is getting tested so that Dr. Singh can determine if you have a hormone imbalance. If it turns out that you do need treatment, there are several options available, including creams, injections, and pellets implanted under the skin.
These treatments all work in different ways but will help restore normal testosterone levels in your body, which means fewer symptoms and improved quality of life overall.
