Low Testosterone is common is both men and women. Skinny Me is known as the Rock Hill’s Low T Clinic of the South. Testosterone is vital to the health and well-being of BOTH men and women. In men, it is mainly produced by the testicles and in smaller quantities by the adrenal glands. In women, testosterone is produced in both the ovaries and the adrenal glands. Testosterone contributes to muscle mass, strength and endurance. Also, by decreased fat, increased exercise tolerance, enhancement of the sense of well-being and psychological health. Testosterone protects against cardiovascular disease and reduces blood sugar. It leads to improved lean muscle mass, increased bone density, and decrease in cholesterol. It also leads to improved skin tone, improved healing capacity, and increased libido and sexual performance. It enhances the quality of life for both men and women by decreasing the health issues caused by deficiencies. Many physicians have an “old school mentality.” They would only treat patients based on lab results. Many do not receive the treatment they need for optimal health with that though. Cells that require estrogen use testosterone to manufacture estrogen inside the cell by a chemical conversion that uses an enzyme called Aromatase. Testosterone is present and extremely important in both women and men, making adequate tissue levels very important for health in both sexes.
Some of the common symptoms of low testosterone may include low sex drive, and mood changes. Also, insomnia, fatigue, loss of muscle mass and strength, bone loss, increased hair loss, and weight gain.

Patches or creams are a great way to start the supplementation. Creams offer the greatest flexibility for dosing.

Injections are usually given every 7-10 days for men and every 2 weeks in women. These can be self-administered for your convenience, or given at our office if you prefer. These injections can be given intra-muscularly, or with smaller needles, just beneath the skin (subcutaneously).
