(http://ow.ly/fMgr30neDDN)

Testosterone is a hormone that's responsible for putting hair on a man's chest and making his voice deep. It also plays a critical in sexual health and libido.

While this is a completely normal part of the aging process, it can lead to a variety of uncomfortable side-effects including weight gain, hair loss, reduced muscle mass, and general irritability.

What Is An Electrocardiogram?
(http://ow.ly/MPlf30neDDB)

An electrocardiogram or EKG is a type of diagnostic test used to detect cardiovascular problems. Electrocardiograms are performed in-office and are pain-free. During an EKG, electrodes or small sensors are attached to your arms, legs, and chest. Once applied, they go about monitoring your heart's health and overall function. EKGs are regularly used to detect structural problems with heart chambers; blocked or narrow arteries; irregular heartbeats.
