Why Testosterone Therapy?
Testosterone therapy can be a game changer for many men as they begin to experience the effects of aging.
Declining levels of testosterone are a normal part of aging, but if you have symptoms that disrupt your life, there is a solution.
Hormone therapy and Testosterone therapy are common treatments for aging men who experience the symptoms of decreasing levels of hormones as they get older. Men often experience a phenomenon, called andropause, which causes lowered production of testosterone.
Testosterone therapy, which corrects and optimizes healthy testosterone levels, typically eliminates testosterone deficiency symptoms such as chronic fatigue, loss of muscle tone, loss of strength, poor body composition, depression, sleep disorders, lack of sex drive and erectile dysfunction (ED).
Testosterone and your body
During adolescence, men’s bodies begin to produce substantially more testosterone, and as adults, men have substantially higher levels than women.
As the hormone messenger that triggers male physiology and function, testosterone plays a significant role by:
- Deepening your voice
- Causing the growth of body, facial, and pubic hair
- Contributing to increased bone and muscle mass
- Influencing sexual development
- Increasing libido
- Contributing to memory development and reasoning ability
Testosterone continues to regulate your sexual function and physical condition throughout your life. This important hormone even plays a role in keeping your heart healthy because it helps your body produce red blood cells.
After about the age of 30, testosterone levels begin to decline at the rate of roughly 1% per year, frequently leading to a lower libido, decline in physical condition, and other negative effects.
How do you feel with less testosterone?
The gradual loss of your natural testosterone production each year means that you may not notice any changes for some time, but once testosterone deficiency reaches a certain point, you may begin to experience noticeable effects upon your health. It’s common that men in their 40’s and 50’s often suffer from 30-50% of the normal optimal testosterone levels that they once enjoyed in their prime years.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone may include:
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Increased body fat
- Loss of muscle
- Decreased bone density
- Changes in your cholesterol composition
- Lack of focus
- Mood changes such as depression
- Loss of energy
Some of these symptoms can cause a domino effect upon your health. For example, when you lose muscle mass, you may see an increase in body fat because your body doesn’t burn calories as efficiently.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Once it has determined that low testosterone is causing your symptoms, we may recommend TRT.
Five improvements you’re likely to see include:
- Increased energy levels
Rather than fatigue and listlessness, you’re likely to feel invigorated and witness your energy level increasing along with your endurance.
- Renewed sex drive
If you’ve felt the effects of lower testosterone in the bedroom, you may find that your libido returns with TRT.
- Rebuilt muscle mass
If your efforts at the gym weren’t providing the expected results, TRT may help. Weight and resistance exercises produce better results when your testosterone levels are balanced. As a bonus, TRT helps boost your metabolism.
- Goodbye, body fat!
More muscle mass, increased energy levels, and a boost to your metabolism combine to make it easier to lose excess weight — especially the so-called “spare tire” that may have accumulated around your waist.
- More focus and better concentration
Once you begin TRT and your hormone levels reach a more optimal balance, you may find that you can think more clearly. You may also enjoy a more stabilized mood and better sleep!
