Low Testosterone is the #1 Cause of Depression in Men


November 2nd, 2015

It’s almost become a pop-cultural buzz-phrase, but with all of the publicity Low T is getting lately, you might find it difficult to separate fact from fiction. In truth, testosterone deficiency is a real problem affecting millions of men across America. Not only is it the primary cause of depression among men, but it can also cause a host of other issues that can leave you desperate for a solution.

The good news is, in Sunnyvale and San Jose, hormone replacement for men is safe and readily available through Dr. Omeed Sani. Dr. Sani is an expert in hormone replacement therapy and has helped many men just like you overcome depression. If you think you may be suffering from the effects of low testosterone, read on.

Common Indicators of Low T

Because there are a number of factors that can contribute to depression in men, it’s important to understand how your symptoms match up with the facts before beginning hormone replacement therapy. Common indications of testosterone deficiency include:

  • Decreased libido and erectile capacity
  • Lack of focus, poor memory, mental dullness
  • Unexplained depression and mood swings
  • Loss of muscle mass, body fat increase, and muscular weakness
  • Development of arthritis and osteoporosis
  • Increase in blood pressure/blood sugar
  • Fatigue and difficulty sleeping
  • Hot flashes

All of the media hype surrounding Low T has led to an epidemic of men pinning physical and emotional problems on their hormone levels when, in fact, they turn out to be normal. While it is true that testosterone levels are known to begin steadily decreasing in men in their late thirties, this doesn’t automatically mean you have Low T if you experience any of these symptoms. Dr. Sani will conduct a thorough screening of your hormone levels and other factors to ensure testosterone replacement is right for you.

Are you suffering from depression and think Low T might be to blame? In Sunnyvale and San Jose, hormone replacement for men is just a call away. Call Dr. Sani today at 408.636.7101 to schedule your appointment.
