As men age, the body naturally produces less testosterone. In some men, the drop can be dramatic enough to cause fatigue, muscle loss, weight gain, sexual problems, and depression.
Up to one-quarter of men older than 45 may suffer from low testosterone. The condition is more likely to occur as a man grows older.
Learn more about “Low T,” its effects, and the benefits and risks of testosterone replacement therapy, as Adam Shrewsberry, MD, the newest urologist to join the medical staff at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge, discusses “Testosterone: Knowing Your Number” at Health Night on the Town.
Health Night will take place Tuesday, October 28, at 7 p.m. in the Ridge Conference Room, located in Methodist Medical Center at 990 Oak Ridge Turnpike. The program is free and open to the public.
Dr. Shrewsberry earned his degree from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, Georgia, where he also completed a urology residency.
He is a member of the American Urologic Association, the Endourological Society, and Sexual Medicine Society of North America. Dr. Shrewsberry is in practice with Oak Ridge Urology Associates.
