Low Testosterone and Low Growth Hormone
AndroGel. Testim. Striant. Injectible testosterone cypionate. If you're a middle aged man, you've probably already heard (or tried) testosterone replacement therapy. "Low T" symptoms include low sex drive (libido), erectile dysfunction, fatigue and poor energy level, decreased muscle mass, hair loss, difficulty concentrating, depression, anxiety and irritability, and low sense of well-being. TRT options like AndroGel and Testim can be effective in increasing testosterone, but they come with potentially serious side-effects and unknown long-term complications. Many men are prescribed testosterone without identifying (and correcting) the underlying cause of the low testosterone. Often the cause of low testosterone and hormone imbalances is from poor sleep.
Sleep is a reduced energy-consuming state. Sleep permits the body the energy and time it needs to repair muscles without having to expend energy on daily functions. This is one reason why one third of your life is spent asleep. During the deeper stages of restorative sleep, metabolic and biologically-reparative actions take place including the release of testosterone and growth hormone. Up to 70% of growth hormone is released during deep, restorative sleep. Many men's bodies are capable of producing sufficient testosterone and human growth hormone, but because of sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea, they aren't getting enough restorative sleep necessary for hormone release.
If you want to increase your testosterone, focus first on improving your restorative sleep! Don't let sleep apnea or poor restorative sleep steal from you the energy and excitement that comes with restorative sleep. Get your sleep evaluated today at Austin's top-rated sleep lab, SleepSomatics.
