Men’s Health Clinic – Treatment of Testosterone, Sleep Apnea, Diabetes, High Cholesterol
Low T Center is a men’s clinic that offers a variety of different medical services. We can diagnose and treat low testosterone, hypothyroidism, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes. We also offer men’s health assessments and annual physicals. At Low T Center, our goals are to identify any underlying conditions that are affecting your overall health, to treat them and to help you feel your very best.
Some men may suffer symptoms for several years as a result of low testosterone and not realize low t is the cause. These symptoms might include fatigue or a low sex drive. We’ll check your testosterone levels as part of a full blood panel, and if you are a candidate for low testosterone therapy, we can get you started on it as part of your personalized treatment plan.
Sleep apnea is a condition in which you stop breathing multiple times while you are sleeping. The poor sleep that results from sleep apnea can cause quality-of-life issues, but there can also be serious, long-term health effects because the condition affects the levels of oxygen in your blood. If we diagnose you with sleep apnea, we’ll work out a personalized sleep apnea treatment plan, including lifestyle changes or treatment with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device.
Like low testosterone, hypothyroidism is also an issue with hormones. If you have hypothyroidism, your thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are similar to those associated with low testosterone and include fatigue and weight gain. We’ll diagnose you with hypothyroidism using a blood test, and then our thyroid treatment typically uses medication to help optimize your thyroid levels.
Our work as a men’s health clinic includes checking your cholesterol levels. We might do this as part of the men’s health assessment and physical exams that we offer to patients whether or not you are experiencing any symptoms. You may need lifestyle changes or medication to manage your cholesterol levels.
Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure. Checking your blood pressure is generally a routine part of any health assessment or physical exam you may have. If you have hypertension, it might be possible to manage it with lifestyle changes, such as a change in diet and quitting smoking. However, you might also need medication for effective hypertension treatment. We’ll work with you to decide which method of treatment best suits your personal situation.
At our men’s clinic, we can also diagnose diabetes and help you manage it, whether you have Type 1 or Type 2. Lifestyle changes may be sufficient for managing Type 2 diabetes. For Type 1 diabetes, lifestyle changes can also help although you will need insulin as well. We will help you determine an appropriate and effective diabetes treatment and management plan that fits your specific needs.
We offer annual exams that can help us detect the underlying conditions you might have or just to make sure you remain healthy. At our men’s clinic, we will determine whether you need low testosterone treatment or any other kind of treatment, and we’ll put an individualized treatment plan together for you.
Whether you want to discuss specific symptoms, such as insomnia or fatigue, or simply want a health assessment, we can help. If you haven’t been feeling like yourself lately and want to get back on track with optimizing your health, contact us today at Low T Center by making an online appointment.
