Have you ever wondered how you rattled off an awe-inspiring speech at a conference without ever glancing at your note cards when you were in your 30s, or commanded a boardroom of executives without missing a beat somewhere in your early 40s? Have you now begun to wonder where all that confidence and brainpower went?
Low levels of testosterone affect more than your weight, sex drive, and energy levels. Research shows that testosterone plays a role in your cognitive function, as well. In fact, the reason many aging men find commanding the boardroom a challenge or struggle with irritability is due to declining testosterone levels.
The Impact of Testosterone on Cognitive Function
A 2008 study found a correlation between low testosterone levels and cognitive function in men. In 2010, a follow-up study found an even great link—low testosterone was shown to increase the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, too.
As researchers continue to understand the link, the connection is really no surprise. Both men and women suffering from low levels of testosterone have been shown to struggle with fatigue, mood swings, poor focus, and low self-esteem. The impact of testosterone on cognitive function is as strong as it is for the body.
Of course, further evidence of the power of testosterone is observed in patients who pursued testosterone replacement therapy after they found life wasn’t the same when testosterone levels declined. Balanced testosterone gave them back that “spark”—the mental acuity, energy, and confidence to thrive at work, at home, at the gym, and in the bedroom.
Testosterone Therapy for a Healthy Mind and Body
Balance is the key to good health. Whether it’s your eating habits, your stress levels, or your hormones, an imbalance can keep you from having a healthy, higher quality of life. You need to achieve balance and it never hurts to seek expert help.
Comprehensive testing can tell you exactly what your body needs and a one-on-one consultation with a caring, dedicated physician can help you assess your needs and your goals. While in many cases, low sex drive, poor focus, fatigue, and moodiness are the result of low testosterone, other factors may be to blame. Getting the right diagnosis means you will get the right treatment and achieve effective, healthy results.
