Men's Health

Having low testosterone levels can affect you in many ways.


Hormone disruption can play a part in an array of symptoms including mood, concentration, memory, sleep, sex drive, to name but a few.


It is estimated that around 20% of men in the UK have low testosterone but very few are diagnosed and treated. This is partly because of reduced awareness but also because symptoms are vague and often result in incorrect diagnosis.

Erectile problems can also be a sign of cardiovascular disease so it is really important that men have the appropriate investigations and receive the best treatment to improve their future health.

 
Blood Test

What services do we offer?

A consultation taking a full medical history taking into account the issues you would like to address.

Part of this will require you to complete some standardised questionnaires but a lot of it will be undertaken within the consultation.


You will also need to be examined. Height, weight and blood pressure will be part of the examination.

Investigations

Once the history and basic examination has taken place, base line investigations will be performed. These might include blood samples, an ECG and a urine sample.

Follow up

Once all this information has been collated, if needed, we will discuss a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs, in keeping with guidance from the British Society for sexual medicine.

This might involve:

  •      Evidenced based medication for        weight loss

  •      Pharmacological treatment for erectile dysfunction

  •      Hormonal replacement

  •      Other medical support

Evidence

It is well documented that testosterone levels in men can reduce over time and impact multiple areas of health. 

Men with low testosterone can present with low mood and reduced sex drive. They are often in turn treated with antidepressants which can worsen libido and erectile dysfunction.

Central obesity and type two diabetes has also been associated with low testosterone and erectile dysfunction. Through our clinic we can help assess and support your hormonal needs as well as providing proven pharmacological support with weight loss.

Testimonials


Thank you for all your help and support throughout the year and your expert advice.

I am now feeling better than I have done for years and for that I thank you.

Kind regards 

I just wanted to say I’m very thankful for your help that you gave me. It really changed/ saved my life and I just wanted to send an email of appreciation as no one else at the time was helpful. You listened to my worries and gave me a solution. I’m forever great full. 
Many thanks

I would like to thank for all your brilliant publications on diabetes, ED and the heart!


Being a urologist, I am struggling hard to convince my fellow collegues in Norway about the importance of correcting male hypogonadism not only to improve sexual function, but also metabolic status and risk of CVD. 


Your recent review on metabolic effects of testosterone therapy in men with T2D (Sex Med Rev 2019;7:476-490) should be compulsory reading for all doctors and medical students. Not only does it stand out as academically brilliant, it also has literary qualities that remind me of the author of not-so-academic-books Terry Pratchett, who is one of my favourites.


I am your biggest fan!
