Testosterone Therapy is becoming extremely popular, due to the benefits that it offers, yet many people still ask, "What is TRT?" and "Is Testosterone Therapy Safe?" To start, lets look into what is testosterone?Testosterone is an essential male hormone that does much more for men than just promote a “healthy sex drive”. Testosterone also affects several other systems in our bodies, including body fat, lean muscle, bones, red blood cell count, energy and motivation, healthy sleep patterns and focus and mood.

For most men, their normal testosterone levels are typically between 300 and 1,000 ng/dL. There has been considerable research done that shows levels have been on a steady decline over the past several generations, quite possibly due to environmental factors like food additives, plastics and chemicals in lotions and sunscreens to name a few.  There are so many possible reasons as to why a person’s testosterone levels may be sub optimal and low, that its almost impossible to narrow it down to a single cause, and why testosterone therapy is the only real option most men have to boost their hormone levels.

When starting Testosterone Therapy, or TRT, the physician will have to take an initial blood test. Depending on the symptoms and results from the blood test, a physician may suggest testosterone injections or a testosterone gel/cream. This is known as testosterone replacement therapy or TRT. This therapy has proven to help men with low t, or andropause, change their lives for the better.

Testosterone therapy injections can be given by your physician or you can be taught how to administer injections on your own, which most patients prefer due to the convenience of not having to go into the clinic to receive the injection. The injection site is most often in the gluteal muscles in the buttocks, but ban be taken in the thigh or deltoid (shoulder). Some patients choose to receive the first several injections in the clinic with the doctor until they feel comfortable enough to do them on their own at home.

Men will naturally begin to lose some of their testosterone when they reach their late 20’s and 30s. It’s a slow but steady decline that many men will not notice until they “hit a wall” most often by age 40. We often hear stories about how men just don’t have the same energy…they lack motivation to do things like work out. Their libido’s decline significantly and they have lack luster erections and a decrease in their sexual performance. Testosterone Therapy can be the game changer o get them back to where they want to be.

This often can cause problems in their relationships and will usually lead to anger, moodiness and stress. Poor sleep quality and weight game also start to become noticeable and guys who used to be happy and fun to be around are often depressed and not the same person they used to be. Normal decline in T levels are on average around 1%-2% each year. That drop in hormone levels will start to take a toll pretty quickly. Throw in a couple of environmental factors like previously discussed and this could speed up the decline even faster. 

Some of the more common symptoms of low Testosterone include:
  • Depression, and anxiety
  • Moodiness a short temper
  • Unwanted weight Gain, especially around the midsection
  • Low Energy and Fatigue
  • Lack of motivation
  • Poor sleep quality and restlessness at night
  • Loss of focus
  • Lowering Sex drive and performance
  • Difficulty achieving and maintaining erections
  • Decrease in muscle tone and mass

    How Do You Diagnose Low T

With all of the commercials out there, some men have a pretty good idea what’s going on and even may want to diagnose themselves with hypogonadism, or low T. The problem with that and ANY self-diagnosis is that several of the symptoms of low T are relatively normal symptoms of aging, so using them exclusively for the purpose of diagnosis is not a reliable method and is best left for the expertise of an actual MD. A doctors-ordered blood test is the only way to find out for certain if your testosterone levels are too low. These tests give the doctor a look into your overall health and hormone balance as well.
When you see our doctor, he’ll sit down with you and conduct a physical exam and discuss your past and current medical history as well as goals and any questions you have in regard to Testosterone Therapy, or TRT. If your medical history, physical exam and blood tests show that you have low T levels, you may benefit from testosterone replacement therapy.

Fat and muscle changes

Men, on average, have a lower percentage of body fat compared to women. Partially this is because of the presence of testosterone, which will help men regulate their fat and maintain muscle mass and strength in their body. With low Testosterone levels, most likely you will see gradual, yet steady increases in body fat, especially the love handles and their bellies.

Testosterone will also help men to regulate growth of lean muscle. Men who have low Testosterone, often feel like they’ve gotten smaller and weaker with less muscle tone than they once did. Testosterone injections can help increase not only metabolism but burn fat as well as increase lean muscle mass, overall energy and recovery. Testosterone Therapy has been shown to help improve overall health.
