Low testosterone also referred to as hypogonadism effects more than 3 million people. The latest research suggests that men without enough of the hormone face a higher risk of several serious illnesses, including diabetes, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease. A simple blood test can reveal whether a guy has low “T,” but there are plenty of other clues that a problem exists.
Testosterone is what fuels a man’s sex drive. If he’s low on “T,” he’s likely to become less interested in having sex. Men differ in how frequently they like to have sex. But for men with low testosterone, it’s completely absent.
Erections are triggered by the body’s release of a tiny molecule called nitric oxide. But testosterone is what’s needed to trigger this release, and if there’s not enough of it, nothing much happens down below. Either erections are impossible, or they’re not firm enough for intercourse.
It’s perfectly normal for a guy to feel tired at the end of a busy day. But men with low “T” feel completely depleted. They complain of being more tired than they think they ought to be. In addition to feeling severe fatigue, men with low testosterone often lose their drive and initiative. Men who used to be up and at ’em all day long are sidelined on the sofa.
Even if they’re not experiencing clinical depression, men with low testosterone often feel down or blue. They feel less optimistic than they used to feel. Low testosterone can cause men to be grouchy and irritable. Sometimes the problem is more apparent to friends, family members and colleagues – than to the men themselves.
It’s not like they become weaklings, but men with low testosterone often feel that they’re not as strong as they once were. Some men actually notice shrinkage in their arm and leg muscles, and in their chest. And if they try to build muscles with weight-lifting, they often find it frustratingly difficult to build muscle mass. Low testosterone often results not only in reduced muscle mass, but also in increased body fat. Some men add weight around the middle. Others develop gynecomastia, aka “man boobs.”
The good news about low testosterone is that it’s easily treated. And in addition to helping resolve problems with sexuality, mood and appearance, testosterone therapy can help protect men against several serious medical problems, including diabetes, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease.
For many men, treatment is life-altering, providing them with renewed energy, confidence, and a sense of wellbeing.

Hormone Replacement Therapy. Free Consultation. New York, NY.
Many men could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy to combat common health issues men experience every day. However, there are many men that dismiss these issues as inevitable signs of aging. There is a common misconception many men may have about hormone replacement therapy: that it is strictly for women.
The truth is that hormone replacement therapy can help men live more youthful, energetic lives, and slow down those inevitable signs of aging. In recent men’s health research, many men reported several common physical and emotional symptoms often attributed to aging and low testosterone. Some common symptoms of male menopause are as follows:
Lower Energy Levels
Lower Muscle Mass
Depression & Anxiety
Symptoms of andropause, or male menopause, a condition marked by a decrease in testosterone levels or an increase in estrogen levels. These symptoms may respond favorably to hormone replacement therapy offered by CORE Medical New York.
As more men are learning about the benefits of hormone replacement therapy, more and more hormonal supplements are turning up in the marketplace. Too often however, these supplements are the mass-produced, one-size-fits-all variety that doesn’t consider the man’s individual, unique biological needs. That’s why more men are turning to CORE Medical New York for their customized approach of addressing male hormonal deficiencies.

What causes testosterone deficiency?
Testosterone is a hormone produced by the testicles and is responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics, and is important for maintaining muscle bulk, adequate levels of red blood cells, bone density, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive function.
Inadequate testosterone production is not a common cause of erectile dysfunction (ED). When ED does occur with decreased testosterone production, testosterone replacement therapy may improve the ED.
As a man ages, the amount of testosterone in his body gradually declines. This natural decline starts after age 30 and continues throughout life. The significance of this decline is controversial and poorly understood.
Symptoms of testosterone deficiency:
- decreased sex drive
- decreased sense of well-being
- depressed mood
- difficulties with concentration and memory
- erectile dysfunction
What are the changes that occur in the body with testosterone deficiency?
Changes that occur with testosterone deficiency include:
- a decrease in muscle mass, with an increase in body fat
- variable effects on cholesterol metabolism
- a decrease in hemoglobin and possibly mild anemia
- fragile bones (osteoporosis)
- a decrease in body hair
How do I find out if I have a testosterone deficiency?
The only accurate way to detect the condition is to have your doctor measure the amount of testosterone in your blood. It sometimes may take several measurements of testosterone to be sure if a patient has a deficiency, since levels of testosterone tend to fluctuate throughout the day. The highest levels of testosterone are generally in the morning. This is why doctors prefer, if possible, to obtain early morning levels of testosterone.
What options are available for testosterone replacement?
The options available for testosterone replacement are:
- intramuscular injections, generally every two or three weeks
- testosterone patches worn either on the body or on the scrotum (the sac that contains the testicles). These patches are used daily. The body patch application is rotated between the buttocks, arms, back or abdomen.
- testosterone gels that are applied daily to the shoulders, upper arms, or abdomen.

1. Cypionate– DEPO-Testosterone Injection, for intramuscular injection, contains testosterone cypionate which is the oil-soluble 17 (beta)- cyclopentylpropionate ester of the androgenic hormone testosterone.Testosterone cypionate is a white or creamy white crystalline powder, odorless or nearly so and stable in air. It is insoluble in water, freely soluble in alcohol, chloroform, dioxane, ether, and soluble in vegetable oils. This product is the most common used in Hrt injectable when used as an indictable delivery method. It is the most mild with lest side effects of all testosterones. When this long-acting version of testosterone is injected, it becomes stored in what is known as a depot in the body, and slowly released over a short period of time. Peaking within 1-2 days after injection, the testosterone is then steadily released over the next 12 days and completely tapers out after approximately 3 weeks.
2. Enathate- Testosterone ethanate -is an anabolic steroid with extremely high anabolic and androgenic effects. It is a long acting injectable testosterone. Injections of testosterone ethanate are taken once weekly, with a dosage of 200. Testosterone Enanthate has a release time of between 8-10 days. It is typically injected once every one to three weeks, though some users opt for a twice a week frequency as well. This version of testosterone will cause the usual side effects associated with Testosterone, including: hair loss, acne, gynecomastia and eventual cessation of the body’s natural testosterone production. Many of these side effects can be associated (if not totally attributed) with the conversion of Testosterone into Dihydrotestosterone and estrogen
3. Propionate– Testosterone Propionate is the shortest estered testosterone preparation available on the market currently. It does everything you’d expect from testosterone, but anecdotally seems to promote less water retention than longer estered versions of the product.
4. Testosterone Blend (Sustanon) – There are two advantages to combining multiple esters in the same formulation as Sustanon does. Here, using multiple esters allows the fairly high total concentration of 250 mg/mL without requiring a large percentage of solubility enhancers in the vehicle. More generally, solubilities of different esters of a steroid are nearly independent of each other, so for example if a vehicle (oil plus solubility enhancers) could dissolve 100 mg/mL of one steroid ester alone or 100 mg/mL of another, it could probably dissolve 200 mg/mL total as a combination of both. This can add convenienc
Testosterone: A “male hormone” — a sex hormone produced by the testes that encourages the development of male sexual characteristics, stimulates the activity of the male secondary sex characteristics, and prevents changes in them following castration. Chemically, testosterone is 17-beta-hydroxy-4-androstene-3-one.
Testosterone is the most potent of the naturally occurring androgens. The androgens cause the development of male sex characteristics, such as a deep voice and a beard; they also strengthen muscle tone and bone mass. High levels of testosterone appear to promote good health in men, for example, lowering the risks of high blood pressure and heart attack. High testosterone levels also correlate with risky behavior. Testosterone may be given to treat medical conditions, including female (but not male) breast cancer, hypogonadism (low gonadal function) in the male, cryptorchism (nondescent of the testis into the scrotum), and menorrhagia (irregular periods).
