Keep It Up: The Power of Precision Medicine to Conquer Low T and Revitalize Your Life!by Florence Comite, Abraham Morgentaler (Foreword by)
As a man ages, a slow decline takes root that, day to day, is imperceptible. Sometime around age 30, levels of the male hormone testosterone begin to drop each year. One morning he looks in the mirror and sees someone who he doesn't recognize. He's tired-looking, lacks motivation, his belly is sagging over his belt, his mind is foggy and maybe even his sex drive
As a man ages, a slow decline takes root that, day to day, is imperceptible. Sometime around age 30, levels of the male hormone testosterone begin to drop each year. One morning he looks in the mirror and sees someone who he doesn't recognize. He's tired-looking, lacks motivation, his belly is sagging over his belt, his mind is foggy and maybe even his sex drive has evaporated. What happened? "Oh, you're just getting older," people tell him - even his doctor!
Endocrinologist Florence Comite, MD, doesn't believe we should accept aging as is. She believes any man can restore his body, mind, and energy; prevent disease; and feel strong, confident, and in control once again.
Keep It Up will show you how to quantify your own health and then make key changes that will reduce your belly fat and risk of diabetes, revitalize your sex drive and strengthen your erections, and give you more muscle and greater mental agility. Because testosterone affects all of the above aspects of a man's vitality, Dr. Comite shows readers how the cutting edge science of hormone optimization is an effective way to prevent the disorders of aging.
"Testosterone optimization can absolutely change a man's life," Dr. Comite says. It can reduce fat, build lean muscle and reverse disease but the most important benefit, she says, "is the feeling of being 'recharged'-feeling more focused, more vigorous, more masculine, more alive."

I bought the book because several years ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I inherited the disorder, therefore, I was misdiagnosed since early childhood. My doctor and I worked on a program to maximize my health. I am always interested in how to improve upon our plan, so I research a lot. When I find new information specific to my needs I read it. Dr. Comite uses the same approach we have taken. I do not have low T, but understand the role it plays in men's health as we age. i was raised in a family which stressed good health from birth to death. Dr. Comite's "Precision Medicine" would benefit all of us. It works. I live it. I am sixty four, but my son who is thirty three says most men his age wish they were as physically fit. Our health care system would benefit greatly, if it focused on preventive medicine as is presented in "Keep It Up". As always consult with your doctor when trying different approaches to your health. I have found most physicians will work with you because we are complex beings and we understand ourselves better than anyone else. Buy the book, enjoy and enjoy life.
