Testosterone Replacement Therapy Q & A

The amount of the hormone testosterone generally peaks in your teens and early adulthood. Aging brings a gradual decline in testosterone, which is secreted by your testicles. After age 30, your levels slide approximately 2-3% every year.
Over time, this decline in testosterone produces several adverse side effects, such as less energy, less mental sharpness, and a lower quality of life. Peach Medical Group offers testosterone replacement therapy to alleviate these symptoms and others.
