We all feel tired at times but if you feel chronically fatigued and have chronic pain it may be related to low testosterone. Did you know that fatigue and lack of motivation are commonly reported in people with low testosterone levels? Did you know that low testosterone is quite common for both men and women who are prescribed opioid pain medication even if not taken routinely? The risk of low testosterone still exists for those not taking opioids especially those who are diabetic and /or obese.
Javery Pain Institute may be able to help. Simple blood tests can be performed and reviewed by our Advanced Care Providers: Kelsey Johel PA-C, Shelly Carnevale NP-C and Heather Metz NP-C. We have been trained to determine a treatment plan for low testosterone and can work with you on improving your levels with a goal of improved energy.
Treatment for low testosterone may include diet modification, increased exercise, testosterone replacement, transition to a different opioid with less risk of hormone disruption. Options may be available to compliment your quality of life. Schedule an appointment to discuss.
