WHAT IS LOW-T?
Do you often feel run down and tired, even when you eat well, exercise, and get plenty of rest? There may be more to it than you just getting older. Low testosterone (low T) is a common medical problem in men that often goes undiagnosed. In fact, low T affects nearly 40% of men over the age of 45.
Extreme and persistent fatigue is often just the first sign of low T. Other symptoms may include:

There is help available for low T, but before you tackle the problem, you need to get a definite diagnosis from a qualified provider, like the ones at Apex Health.
Hormones Q & A
Hormones are a type of messenger chemical in your body that regulate your habits and
functions. You produce many types of hormones that work together to keep your system
balanced and functioning properly. Hormones that may sound familiar to you include:
- Adrenaline (gives you energy)
- Human growth hormone (HGH) (helps you grow properly and preserves your muscle tissue)
- Insulin (regulates your blood sugar)
- Estrogen & Progesterone (female sex hormones)
- Testosterone (male sex hormone)
- Serotonin (stabilizes your mood)
- Thyroid hormones (regulate your metabolism)
- Cortisol (helps you handle stress and mood changes)
- DHEA (boosts testosterone and estrogen production)
These are just a few of the many hormones that your body produces naturally.
Men experience andropause when their hormone levels drop. Common symptoms for men often include low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, lack of motivation, loss of muscle mass, and weight gain.
Dr. Sharp understands the difficulties of changing bodies and hormone levels. To combat your symptoms, he offers several hormone replacement therapy options:
Bioidentical hormones are artificial hormones that mimic the ones in your body. Men and women can be treated with bioidentical testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.
During pellet therapy, Dr. Sharp places plant-based hormone pellets under your skin to release small doses of the hormones you need over time.
