Men commonly suffer from the effects of lower testosterone as they age. Production starts to decrease around the age of 30, sometimes even earlier. It’s a natural result of aging, but testosterone maintains a range of bodily functions, so its decline causes symptoms and side effects. Find out if you or someone you love is affected and how HCG injections for men may reverse low testosterone and aid in weight loss.
Low Testosterone Symptoms
Testosterone affects a man’s sex drive, sperm production, muscle mass, and overall body fat. It also plays a role in maintaining bone density and producing healthy red blood cells. Men with decreased testosterone production may notice the following symptoms:
Sexual side effects
Men may have a diminished interest in sex. Low testosterone often causes fewer erections, especially those that happen while asleep. Sperm count drops, potentially leading to infertility. Where low testosterone is the cause of erectile dysfunction, returning to healthy levels can help.
Testosterone helps men increase their muscle mass, so declining levels may mean your time at the gym results in diminished gains. Men also notice more body fat and less body hair. They may experience hot flashes and tenderness in their breast area.
Low testosterone can lead to insomnia. It also often causes men to feel fatigued.
Low testosterone can make it harder to concentrate or cause feelings of depression. Some men are irritable and feel reduced confidence.
HCG Injections for Low T
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that pregnant women produce throughout pregnancy. It helps the body form the baby’s placenta and regulates some aspects of fetal development. Researchers have studied it for years due to its helpfulness in weight loss. Doctors prescribe it to treat infertility in women. It’s also beneficial in treating low testosterone.
HCG helps patients maintain testicular function. It reduces testicular shrinkage to improve testosterone production and prevent infertility.
HCG and Weight Loss
Low testosterone often causes men to gain weight they can’t seem to lose. They lose muscle and pack on fat. When they use HCG injections to combat decreasing testosterone, weight loss is often a side effect. Patients say HCG in the bloodstream makes them feel less hungry.
In pregnant women, HCG signals the body to use stored fat to fuel fetal development. HCG injections stimulate the body to burn stored fat, so men retain muscle mass and still lose weight.
