Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men — You Don’t Have to Live with Low T Symptoms

If you’re one of the many men suffering from the symptoms of hypogonadism (the medical term for low testosterone), then you’re probably considering testosterone replacement therapy — for many men, it’s a treatment that can balance hormones and help men feel like themselves again.

Low testosterone is a common problem. In fact, the number of men who meet the criteria for chronic low testosterone has increased in recent years, particularly among men in their 50’s (12%) and 60’s (19%).

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) could pay big dividends if you suffer from chronic hypogonadism.

The Signs of Low T

You’ll easily see how the symptoms of low testosterone, which include the following signs, can really hamper a man’s lifestyle:

  • Fatigue
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile difficulty
  • Weight problems
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Loss of endurance
  • Depressed mood
  • Muscle weakness & loss

These symptoms are not very conducive to high self-esteem or feeling positive about your quality of life.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy For Men — Improve Your Quality of Life

Why testosterone replacement therapy? For men in otherwise good health, but suffering from low testosterone, the answer is easy — to regain their ability to perform at a high level, both vocationally and romantically.

An improved perception of overall well-being is one of the main benefits of testosterone replacement therapy. For men, feeling productive and confident is important — that usually requires the ability to work hard and play hard.

Additionally, getting your hormones balanced can relieve irritability and reduce anxiety. Low mood often improves under therapy, and many men find that they return to the more-positive self they knew only a few short years ago.

The results of testosterone replacement therapy, for many men, aren’t some miracle anti-aging gimmick — the methods are based on decades of research and clinical experience. TRT seeks to not simply increase your testosterone levels, but to restore balance to your hormones generally — simply put, when you have low testosterone (hypogonadism), your ratios of testosterone to estradiol are no longer what they should be.

There are many benefits to restoring that balance within your body.

How Testosterone Replacement Therapy Works

The goal of testosterone replacement therapy is to compensate for the failure of your body to produce enough testosterone to function properly.

An easy way to think about this hormone mixture is a struggling carburetor in a classic Mustang or Camaro — the car itself is in great mechanical order, but it’s just not running properly because the ratio of gasoline to air isn’t right, which results in overall poor performance.

Through TRT, your hormone levels return to more optimum levels, and that can, in turn, help many of your body’s systems to function as they should. That said, TRT is far more effective when combined with a reasonable exercise plan and healthy eating. The return on the time and energy invested in the gym is profoundly better when testosterone levels are optimal versus when they are low.

(You can read more about how long it takes for TRT to show results here.)

Testosterone tells the body to burn fat and directs muscle and bone tissue production — the body begins to perform these necessary tasks more efficiently as testosterone levels rise back to normal.

We’re looking to improve your overall hormone balance through weekly doses, administered by weekly injections — the dosage is frequently adjusted according to the results of regularly scheduled blood panels.

For safe and effective results with testosterone replacement therapy, proper dosage is a key element.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Side Effects

Just as with any other medical treatment, there are possible side effects associated with testosterone replacement therapy.

The following side effects are possible, but occurrences can be significantly reduced or prevented entirely through consistent monitoring of your major hormone levels and expert dosing procedures:

Also, testosterone replacement therapy can affect male fertility, which is important to consider if you plan to have more children — read about that here.

These potential side effects can occur as your body reacts to higher testosterone levels or as the result of increased estradiol in the bloodstream (the byproduct of testosterone metabolism and utilization).
