Testosterone Deficiency Treatments in Wisconsin
What is Testosterone Deficiency?
Testosterone deficiency, also called hypogonadism, occurs when the body isn’t able to produce normal amounts of testosterone. It is most often due to a problem with the testicles or the pituitary gland (which controls the testicles).
All men’s testosterone levels decrease gradually with age, so before treating you for testosterone deficiency, your physician will make sure that your testosterone level is due to disease and isn’t just a normal age-related decline.
Treatment Options for Testosterone Deficiency
Testosterone replacement therapy is one treatment option that can improve the signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency. The hormone replacement can come in the form of injections, patches, pellets or gels.
Urologists at Aurora are experienced in diagnosing and treating testosterone deficiency. If you think you may be experiencing hypogonadism, make sure you talk with a physician who specializes in the disorder. They will talk with you about the risks and benefits of treatment. Contrary to some information in advertisements and on the Internet, testosterone replacement therapy isn’t always the best answer.
