Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health covers a variety of health and wellness categories. At Sunmed Health and Weight Management, men’s healthcare includes treating erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, low libido, premature ejaculation, and other men’s health conditions in a safe and private setting.

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

Low testosterone affects 40% of men over age 45, roughly 40% of men with high blood pressure or high cholesterol, and about 50% of men with diabetes or obesity.

Men with low testosterone may experience various symptoms, such as:

  • Poor erectile function
  • Low libido
  • Reduced sexual activity
  • Increases in body fat
  • Low energy levels
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Depression

How is low testosterone treated?

Dr. Sunio performs a thorough physical exam and discusses your symptoms to make an accurate diagnosis. He also administers a blood test to determine if your testosterone levels are lower than they should be for your age.

Various testosterone replacement treatments are available to boost testosterone levels in men, including:

  • Topical gels
  • Testosterone injections
  • Testosterone pellets (placed under the skin)
  • Testosterone patches

Dr. Sunio will work with you to determine which form of treatment is the best match for you.

When should I see a doctor about premature ejaculation?

If you’re struggling with premature ejaculation, you’re not alone. Premature ejaculation can happen to anybody, regardless of age. Studies suggest it may affect as many as one out of every three men.

If you experience premature ejaculation more often than you’d like and it’s negatively impacting your life, talk with Dr. Sunio about treatment options. He may recommend:

  • Medications
  • Topical anesthetics
  • Counseling
  • Behavioral strategies

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get or maintain an erection long enough to have intercourse. If you’re struggling with erectile dysfunction, Dr. Sunio can help you find a treatment that can restore your performance and your confidence. Treatment options include:

  • Medication
  • Exercise
  • Losing weight
  • Quitting smoking
  • Counseling
  • Penis pumps
  • Surgery
