Miami Doctors Seeing More Cases of Low Testosterone in Men

Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2013

Hormone therapy doctors in Miami say they are seeing an increase in men coming in with symptoms of low testosterone.

“A lot of my male patients actually feel like they’re shadows of their former selves but in as little as three to four weeks on a medically monitored testosterone replacement therapy they feel and perform dramatically better,” says AAG Health Medical Director, Dr. Victor Shabanah.

The condition, known as Low T, affects approximately 14 million men across the U.S. Low testosterone levels can cause a number of problems that chisel away a man’s performance and appearance. Often times a deficiency in testosterone is a side effect of other issues like obesity and diabetes.

“When most men see their own healthcare providers they might only be treated for a specific aspect of their complaint, for erectile dysfunction, or depression, for ADHD, not really realizing they have low testosterone,” says Dr. Shabanah.

The condition can be treated a number of ways, including injections, surgically implanted pellets and gels applied to the skin. Dr. Shabanah says most treatments are not covered by insurance yet AAG Health has seen a surge in men who want to get testosterone therapy and are willing to pay out of pocket.

“I’m not sure if the increase in cases of Low T is because more men are educated on the subject and are willing to get tested for it or, if lifestyle and environment factors, in particular, chemicals called Endocrine Disruptors, which interfere with the endocrine (hormone) system are to blame,” continues Dr. Shabanah.
