Recent studies cited in the article show a 22 percent drop in male testosterone levels since the late 1980s, leading to a host of problems such as hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, low sex drive, low energy levels and pre-diabetes.

Alarming scientific evidence recently reported in Playboy shows American men ages 40, 65 and 70 are plagued with much lower testosterone levels than their fathers before them. Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, founder of LIFEFORCE Medical Institute in Chicago was interviewed by Playboy about the alarming “Low T” trend in their January, 2015 article entitled How Low T Became the Disease du Jour. A study cited by Playboy from the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism shows a 22 percent drop in male testosterone levels since the late 1980s. Researchers say Low T could be responsible for a host of problems such as hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, low sex drive, low energy levels and pre-diabetes.

Some scientists blame record low levels of testosterone on a combination of environmental factors such as phytoestrogens in plants like soy, flame retardants in computers and furniture, and BPA in plastic containers. Dr. Rosenbloom told Playboy another big factor is a healthcare payment system designed to treat chronic illness, not prevent it and poorly trained medical practitioners who prescribe testosterone without proper testing and follow-up. Improperly prescribed and managed testosterone therapy can have a host of unwanted side effects like higher risk for heart attack and stroke. Sales of testosterone products are expected to top $4 billion by 2017.

“Modern medicine is a business and it works best if there is a constant influx of patients with chronic diseases,” says Dr. Rosenbloom. “There isn’t a strong incentive to actually make people healthier so they consume fewer medications and medical services”.

Dr. Rosenbloom is a renowned anti-aging specialist, and the medical director and CEO of LIFEFORCE Medical Institute which has achieved national acclaim on age reversal with hundreds of satisfied patients. He has been interviewed in publications like the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune and Chicago’s Best Hospitals and Doctors. Dr. Rosenbloom treats patients with natural Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), anti-aging supplements, and comprehensive dietary and exercise age management programs. Rosenbloom prescribes testosterone only after he has tested for a deficiency. He regularly monitors patients for any adverse reactions.

A 50-year-old patient of Dr. Rosenbloom, described in the Playboy article, effectively reversed the effects of Low T after just a few months of treatment. His blood pressure, sugar and lipids were restored to youthful levels. He developed lean muscle mass, lost weight and had more energy.
