Optimal - The Podcast: Episode 9  - Andropause & Low Testosterone Syndrome Among Men

Dr. Dicken Weatherby & Beth Ellen DiLuglio, MS, RDN, LDN

Welcome to episode 9 of "Optimal - The Podcast". In this episode of Optimal, we’re diving into Testosterone with an exploration of andropause and Low T Syndrome in our male patients.  

Testosterone is a vital hormone both for men and women. But its role is greatly significant among males, as it contributes to their muscle growth, sexual health, and other aspects of health.

For men, the thought of being low on testosterone feels like a hit to their masculinity. What happens when your patient’s testosterone is low? How can you tell? What can you do to help them boost it?

Join Dr. Dicken and Beth Ellen DiLugio in this episode as they talk about the low testosterone syndrome among male patients, what causes it, as well as the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
