Testosterone is one of your hormones that decreases as you age and is responsible for many of the symptoms of “normal” aging. Research now shows that this decline is more than expected and is becoming an epidemic.
Environmental pollution is likely to increase as the world becomes more crowded and new chemicals are created with little understanding of their long-term consequences. The body has a complex system to control testosterone levels and this system can be affected many different ways.
Testosterone levels began to decline about 1 % per year starting when you turned 30 years old. Not surprisingly, about 40% of men after the age of 40 start experiencing problems with their erections.
As your hormone levels continue to decline with age, your symptoms and risks of more serious problems also increases. Low testosterone levels are correlated with the following major health conditions:
- Heart Disease
- Diabetes Type 2
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Erectile Dysfunction
For some men, this may mean less firm erections, less energy, less muscle mass, less mental acuity, and less sexual drive. Some men may notice increased blood pressure and increase cholesterol levels.
Ultimo Men’s Clinic provides a solution that is called Testosterone Injection, which is a hormone replacement therapy that increases the amount of testosterone in the blood. Testosterone is needed to maintain the vascular smooth muscle of bloods that fills the penis during erection.
