IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Low T Center is excited to announce the opening of its first California center today. The center is located at 4968 Booth Circle, Suite 110, Irvine, California 92604. Dr. Johannes Ramirez, M.D. is the Medical Director of the center. The hours of operation are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
As expansion continues, Low T Center has plans of adding another West Coast location in Beverly Hills next week, along with 2 additional centers in the Chicago area by early November. There are three numbers every man should know: cholesterol, prostate, and testosterone levels. Do you know your numbers? Currently, 13 million men in the U.S. have low levels of testosterone. Low T Center is set up so men can walk in, take a simple blood test, and know within 30 minutes if they are a candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy. With well over 29,000 visits seen monthly in nine states, experience shows that testosterone injections may lead to improved energy, strength, and libido, as well as decreases in body fat, irritability, and depression. Diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, and high blood pressure have all been linked to testosterone deficiency. Low testosterone isn't known to cause these health problems, and replacing testosterone isn't the cure. Still, the associations between low testosterone and other medical conditions are interesting and worth a look.
Research indicates an established link between diabetes and low testosterone. Men with diabetes are more likely to have low testosterone. And men with low testosterone are more likely to later develop diabetes. Unsystematic lab test have shown that as many as half of men with diabetes have low testosterone. Scientists are not sure whether diabetes causes low testosterone, or the other way around. More research is necessary, but short-term studies show testosterone replacement may improve blood sugar levels and obesity in men with low testosterone. Research also links testosterone replacement to improvements in health issues including Alzheimer's and heart disease. However, low testosterone is not something that should be self-diagnosed or treated by mail or the internet. Complications and side effects can include high blood pressure, increased PSA levels, edema, and other serious issues. That is why at Low T Center each patient's care is carefully managed by physicians. A full list of potential complications and side effects can be found at www.lowtcenter.com/faq.
