All About Testosterone - Is Yours Low?

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and is responsible in men for the formation of reproductive male tissues such as the testis and prostate. It contributes to the production of muscle and bone mass, the growth of hair on the body, is responsible for the health of sperm and performs regulatory functions in the body. Women do have testosterone, but men have it in much more significant quantities (7x). 

Testosterone levels in the body decline as men age, leaving many men susceptible to health risks including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and metabolic disease. Symptoms of low testosterone include depression, reduced muscle mass, enlarged breasts, erectile dysfunction and low sex drive. 

Learn more on our website or call and book an appointment to have your testosterone levels checked.

Tips for Prostate Health

It is never too early to start thinking about the health of your prostate. In Canada, 1 in 7 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. As you age, keep your prostate healthy and reduce your risk with these tips:

- Eat selenium rich foods such as wheat germ, tuna, herring, eggs, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds. Studies show that a diet rich in selenium reduces one's risk for prostate cancer.

- Get active. Exercise makes the body stronger and more resilient. An active lifestyle also promotes a healthy weight, where obesity is a risk factor for many diseases including cancer. Start walking daily, increasing your activity time gradually. As your cardiovascular system and muscles adapt, add in more strenuous exercise like running, swimming and playing sports. A good weight lifting routine is also a must, to support healthy muscle growth.

- Get checked regularly, and let the doctor know if you have a family history of prostate cancer. Your risk for prostate cancer doubles if you have a close family member like a father or brother with the disease. Book an appointment to have your prostate checked.
