What is Low T?

Low testosterone treatment in Peoria, IL

About 40% of men over the age of 45 have low testosterone levels, or low T. If you often feel tired, sometimes have trouble concentrating, or your sex drive is lower than in the past, your testosterone levels could be low. Board-certified urologist Dr. Joseph Banno in Peoria, Illinois specializes in men’s health issues like low T.

Low T is associated with andropause, the male equivalent to menopause in women. Severe symptoms may include erectile dysfunction or bone density loss. Although age is commonly a contributing factor, there are other medical conditions that can contribute to low T, such as:

  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • Sleep apnea
  • Chronic infections
  • COPD
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic opioid use
  • Kidney disease
  • Sickle cell disease

Increasing and regulating the level of testosterone in your body can:

  • Increase sex drive
  • Raise energy levels
  • Reduce fatigue

Dr. Banno is highly experienced in successful treatment of low T and other men’s sexual health concerns. If you have low T, contact the Peoria men’s health expert today.
