Andrology: Male issues
Urologists are very versatile and can help with any male health issues ranging from erectile dysfunction, infertility, to hormone replacement therapy for the aged man. An active and fulfilled sex life is not only part of a healthy relationship, but also reflective of ones personal health. Erectile dysfunction is often an indicator or a result of organic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or arteriosclerosis.
Lifestyle factors such as smoking, consumption of alcohol, or unhealthy dietary habits directly influence these matters. Men beyond a certain age undergo a natural hormonal transformation, although it is not as sudden as in women.
If a lack of the male sex hormone is found in the blood and the patient experiences problems such as abnormal exhaustion, sleeping disorders or loss of libido, therapy can be useful.
