Kingsport,TN (PRWEB) July 04, 2014
Performance Medicine (Dr. Tom Rogers) and Custom Compounding Centers of America hosted “The Truth about Testosterone” in association with June being Men’s Health Month. The men’s health gathering was standing room only and was held at 109 Jack White Drive, Kingsport, TN on June 24, 2014. The public was welcome.
There were several notable speakers who covered various men’s health topics; for example: exercise, nutrition, and hormones, which all play key roles in total health. “Men don’t have to feel like they have been sentenced to feeling like they barely exist due to lack of energy, low libido, and/or depression just to name a few symptoms. I tell my patients we are all guilty of doing nothing; this is the worst thing they can do for their future health and it places them in their own personal prison. We have medical knowledge, studies and information available to help men that we didn’t have in past years. We offer a wide variety of nutritional supplements and compounded medications to treat different patient situations,” stated Robert Harshbarger, Pharmacist.
According to the American Diabetes Association, as many as 13 million men in the United States may have low testosterone levels — and more than 90 percent of them are not being treated. Among those men, some 70 percent report having trouble maintaining erections, a condition called erectile dysfunction, and 63 percent report having a low sex drive.
Testosterone is a steroid hormone that helps regulate sperm development, maintain muscle mass, and boost energy. Both men and women have it, but men produce about ten times more of it than women. Low testosterone is sometimes known as androgen deficiency syndrome; androgen is the term for the male sex hormone and testosterone is the main sex hormone for men.
State and federal healthcare costs have risen in monumental amounts as our overweight and aging population continues to grow and all the cost that goes along with it. “This is a real problem that we need to deal with starting today. It’s a Win/Win for men; they will look, feel and have better odds of a long life and healthier outcome. I feel passionate speaking to patients about precautionary measures they can take and I get charged up when I counsel patients about lifestyle," said Dr. Harshbarger.
