Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the symptoms of Low Testosterone (Low T)?
A: Testosterone is an important male hormone that powers a man’s sex drive, reproductive abilities and even the development of muscle and bone. When testosterone levels get too low, men often suffer from a lower sex drive, decreased energy levels and/or feelings of moodiness. Low T can be tied to a variety of medical conditions, including: autoimmune diseases, obesity, diabetes, metabolic disorders and heart failure.
Q: What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
A: Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex. ED can be the result of many factors and requires a comprehensive snapshot of the patient’s health to figure out. Most men have enough testosterone to maintain erections even after age 60, so ED cannot solely be attributed to Low Testosterone.
Q: Can I just take a pill, like Viagra, to solve my Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
A: Almost 75% of ED cases are caused by existing medical conditions like diabetes or heart disease; therefore, ED requires a more comprehensive snapshot of the patient’s health to accurately diagnose. Once the underlying cause is established, we can treat the condition with the appropriate method.
Q: How do I know if I have an enlarged prostate (BPH)?
A: More than 70% of men in their 60s have an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). When the prostate enlarges, it can exert pressure on certain areas of the urinary system. The common signs and symptoms including:
- A need for frequent urination – day and night
- An urgent feeling or need to urinate
- A weak or slow urinary stream
- Difficulty or a delay in starting urination
- A urinary stream that stops and starts
- A sense that you can’t completely empty your bladder
Q: I took a pill before for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and it didn’t work, what else can I do?
A: Erectile Dysfunction (ED) could be a result of a more serious issue such as diabetes and/or hypertension that has slowly caused the small blood vessels to the penis to be compromised. If this is the case, there are other options that can restore erections such as:
- Vacuum Erection Devices (VED)
- Penile Injections (Tri-mix)
- Inflatable Penile Prosthesis (IPP)
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
- Low Testosterone (Low T)
- Enlarged Prostate (BPH)
