Male Hormone Deficiency / Testosterone Deficiency

Loss of sex drive & male hormone deficiency

Testosterone deficiency affects more than you know, with 110,000 Irish men suffering – but we can help!

Testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) is a condition caused by a drop in testosterone production in men. Your body’s testosterone level peaks during adolescence and early adulthood. When you reach about 40, your body produces less testosterone. For many men, testosterone levels decline slowly and are not associated with any symptoms.

If you suspect you may be suffering from TDS, talk to a Doctor who knows exactly what you’re going through here at the Fitzwilliam Private Clinic.

Being unable to keep an erection was consuming my life. After 5 minutes the doctor had convinced me that it was fairly common and that he had helped hundreds of men with exactly the same problem.
