New Options Available for the 13 Million Men Who Suffer from Testosterone Deficiency
Date:9/1/2009

Although female hormone replacement has been the center of attention, male hormone levels are just as important to health and wellness. More men are getting tested and more treatment options are becoming available.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 1, 2009 -- While all the news over the last decade seems to revolve around female hormones, more physicians are seeing the need to test and treat their male patients for testosterone deficiency. A new study suggests that as many as 13 million men may suffer from a deficiency of testosterone. Some physicians feel that the findings are consistent with more men asking for help. "The stigma associated with asking for help is gone. Some of this may be due to the increased drug advertisements targeted for men," states Dr. Anderson, MD of Executive Medicine of Texas

Testosterone deficiency is a serious problem and not only is associated with sexual dysfunction, but can also cause loss of muscle mass, weight gain, higher cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disease and other disorders. Patients with low testosterone levels may feel sluggish or depressed. Personal relationships can suffer too, due to the patient's lack of enthusiasm or interest.

Testosterone creams and injections have been in the mainstream of health care treatments and available to patients in the past. The good news is that the FDA announced the approval of the first long-acting Testosterone replacement treatment. Testopel® is manufactured by Slate Pharmaceuticals and is administered by a growing number of physicians. It consists of small pellets that are inserted under the skin just below the beltline during an in-office procedure. The procedure lasts only a few minutes and is done without sedation or stitches.

"Our patients are thrilled that we can do this procedure and they don't have to think about it again for up to six months.
