Testosterone is a steroid hormone found in males that helps men in many more ways than just providing them with a healthy “drive.” A man’s hormone levels, especially free and total testosterone, affect many other factors in a man’s health which include regulation of body fat production of lean muscle mass, proper bone density, healthy red blood cell levels and regulation of mood and sleep.
Normal testosterone levels have typically ranged from about 250 ng/dL to 1100 ng/dL with many factors that can contribute to the wide variation in the values. Things such as age, genetics, lifestyle choices, diet, stress, and other factors may contribute to higher or lower values within men. When patients come into our Jupiter office, located at 609 N. Hepburn Ave. Suite 106 Jupiter, FL 33458, we can help them get the necessary blood tests required to diagnose for low T. For some of the patients who qualify, we may be able to put them on testosterone replacement therapy and the vast majority of patients prefer testosterone cypionate injections.
There are many symptoms for men suffering from low T. As males, we begin to lose our testosterone often starting in our 20s and it’s typically not until our mid-30s to early 40s, that we notice the changes due to the many symptoms of low testosterone. These often include changes in your sex drive, ED, decreased sperm count, anxiety and depression as well as mood fluctuations, Weight gain typically from increased body fat with decreased muscle tone, Hot flashes, irritability and poor sleep quality to name a few.
To diagnose low testosterone, we will have an in-person consultation to discuss your symptoms as well as past and present medical history. We will do a thorough lab panel which includes testing your blood for free and total testosterone levels, estradiol, a complete metabolic panel with complete blood count and a PSA.
Some of the potential benefits of TRT but NovaGenix in Palm Beach County include some of the following:
Increased drive. TRT can substantially improve your performance in the bedroom.
Improved symptoms of ED. Many men on TRT described remarkable improvements down below.
Increased energy. Often men come to us with symptoms of fatigue and TRT helps give them the energy they need to know just navigate through the day but to take charge and own it.
Better mood. Men feel better on TRT so naturally when they feel better their moods improve. Together with increased confidence, TOT helps men feel like their old selves again.
Decreased body fat. Testosterone will help generate more lean body mass and get rid of that abdominal fat around the midsection. Testosterone can help regulate fat distribution.
Like any other medication, not everyone should Beyond TRT. If someone has pre-existing liver, heart issues or prostate enlargement, testosterone replacement may be contraindicated. By seeking the advice of a qualified medical professional such as the physicians at NovaGenix, you can be assured that your health is in good hands and if testosterone replacement therapy would benefit you, we would help to test, diagnose and treat you for low T.
Countless men are starting testosterone replacement therapy and their only regret is not having started sooner.
