TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (TRT)

Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy:

  • Improved Sexual Function: TRT can enhance libido, erectile function, and overall sexual performance in men with hypogonadism

  • Increased Muscle Mass: Testosterone plays a role in muscle development, and TRT can help promote muscle growth and strength. 

  • Increased Bone Density: Low testosterone levels can lead to reduced bone density and osteoporosis. TRT can help improve bone health and reduce the risk of fractures.

  • Improved Mood: Some men with low testosterone experience mood swings, depression, or irritability. TRT can contribute to a more positive mood and emotional well-being.

  • Increased Energy: Many men report increased energy levels and reduced fatigue with TRT.

Testosterone levels in males typically start to decline as part of the natural aging process. The age at which this decline begins and the rate of decrease can vary among individuals, but there are some general patterns:

Late 20s and Early 30s

A gradual decline in testosterone levels can begin around the late 20s and early 30s. This decline is typically gradual and may not be very noticeable at first.
2. Ages 30-40: Testosterone levels continue to decline by about 1-2% per year on average. Many men begin to notice some subtle changes in their physical and sexual health during this period, such as reduced muscle mass, increased body fat, and decreased libido.

Ages 40 and Beyond

Testosterone decline tends to become more noticeable in the 40s and beyond. It can lead to more pronounced symptoms such as reduced energy, mood changes, and sexual dysfunction. This stage of life is sometimes referred to as "andropause" or "male menopause."

Symptoms of low testosterone may include:

• fatigue
• reduced libido
• erectile dysfunction
• mood changes

  • Weight gain

  • Reduced muscle mass and strength

  • Thinning hair

  • Skin changes

Our provider will meet with you to discuss symptoms and explore treatment options. A blood test measuring testosterone levels can help determine if low testosterone is the cause of the symptoms. If low testosterone is confirmed and the symptoms are problematic, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be considered as a treatment option, after discussing the potential benefits and risks.

Male hormone treatment is geared to treat conditions such as Erectile Dysfunction and Low-Testesterone. The treatment is typically used to address hormonal imbalances or conditions that affect the production of specific hormones. The two primary hormones associated with male health are testosterone and, to a lesser extent, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
