We all know by now as we age testosterone decreases in both men and women. This is a natural part of the aging process. Of course, in modern times, we are already predisposed to a disadvantage. What is it? Well, we are already on average producing much less free testosterone than our ancestors. In fact, since the 1920s testosterone levels are substantially lower today than they were in the average person then. More recent studies have confirmed that testosterone production in men has decreased 25% on average just since the 1980s. That’s one giant step for fertility doctors, but much more importantly, it is a one very bad sign for mankind.
So, thank goodness for Viagra. As men have become feminized over the past 50-100 years, there is one way to take advantage of a disease, treat it with synthetic medication. If Viagra does not work, perhaps numb the depression of erectile dysfunction with antidepressants. Does that seem reasonable?
Fortunately, a select group of baby boomers are catching on to what Hollywood has known for years. The miraculous benefits of Anti-Aging or Age Management Medicine. Both men and women now have access to countless research studies on our website by Harvard, Stanford and other international research institutions professors, including the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine organization about the benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Testosterone, one of the most important mood hormones, can be administered in multiple ways depending on what suits the patient best. For those that hate the thought of injection, there is testosterone cream (or testosterone gel). These cream (or gels) are typically compounded by an authorized compounding pharmacy. The topical cream (or gel) is generally applied to the under arm, abdomen, or in some cases the genital area.
What is the advantage of a testosterone cream (or gel)? Well, for those who hate needles it can be a relatively good delivery method for increasing the testosterone levels of men and women to the upper physiological level of their late 20s to mid 30s. This is the goal of those doctors practicing anti-aging or age management treatments in an aging population suffering from obesity, andropause, menopause, diabetes, depression, low libido, and a host of other common factors with a large percentage of the population globally in the modern era.
Many people do not even realize that low testosterone is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Even conventional medical practitioners ignore this important fact. However, with a testosterone cream (or gel) low testosterone levels can be elevated to a normal physiological level which is healthy and helpful for retaining good muscle mass, bone density, mental acuity (sharpness), energy and an overall sense of wellbeing.
Many studies are now confirming that hypogonadism (Low-t) is actually much more prevalent than previously thought. So no doubt, Viagra is a necessary evil in modern society. Particularly for those men without access or insurance coverage for testosterone creams (or gels).
Fortunately, for an informed individual, there are solutions and they are much easier to pursue than many people realize and in some cases a person’s insurance will cover treatment. However, for those individuals without a progressive insurance company, there is Costa Rica. And Costa Rica is and has been the answer for many searching for medical help for many years.
Costa Rica is one of the top 5 medical tourist destinations in the world. That does not mean testosterone cream therapy (or gel) is easy, perfect, and should be pursued without caution. What it does mean is that testosterone cream (or gel) is of high quality and easily available for either resident or foreigner with a need for testosterone replacement therapy with a testosterone cream (or gel). Just a simple blood test can identify a person’s levels so that (if necessary) treatment may be prescribed.
Look… Studies have demonstrated that Low-t in men is strongly associated with metabolic syndrome. Essentially this suggests men with Low t may be at more risk for type 2 diabetes, cardio vascular disease, high blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, among many others. It is smart to get checked for your T levels. It is also unlikely for testosterone replacement therapy to pose a major health risk in patients without prostate cancer, and actually can offset any risk with increased benefits by avoiding the negative effects mentioned above.
