Men, if you feel like you are losing your mojo then maybe it time to check your testosterone level. Aging men will have a predictable decline in the male sex hormone, testosterone, leading to decreased energy and fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and loss of sex drive or erectile function. They will also have increasing risk for heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and dementia.

And men can supplement their hormones, just like women. With declining testosterone levels men tend to feel more and more apathetic, with decreasing motivation, security, and confidence. Feeling so blah causes many men to feel anxious or depressed. Insomnia is also common. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a well- established science and there are hundreds of studies documenting the safety and effectiveness of TRT.
