What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy? [Benefits & Risks]

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Benefits

Testosterone Replacement Therapy is increasingly common in the United States. We help men with lower testosterone levels regulate, balance and enhance their hormone levels. 

What Is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a steroid hormone that stimulates the development of male characteristics and is essential for sperm production.  During puberty, testosterone plays a key role in the physical development of boys into men. Testosterone helps maintain and develop important functions for men such as sexual and reproductive function, sense of well-being, bone density, and adequate levels of red blood cells.

Your body regulates the levels of testosterone in your blood. You usually have the highest level in the morning and throughout the day the level reduces. Due to several factors, many men suffer from low testosterone levels. A reduction in testosterone can have a variety of effects on the body depending on your age. Low testosterone can cause a wide range of symptoms, some of which can be simply uncomfortable and others that are more aggressive and obvious.

Who Is At A Higher Risk Of Developing Lower Testosterone Levels?

A low testosterone level is a medical condition that can affect people of all ages from birth through adulthood. 

Low testosterone is more likely to affect people who:

  • Are older. As you age your level of testosterone naturally decreases. 

  • Have obesity. With increased weight, your testosterone levels drop. 

  • Do not have managed Type 2 diabetes.

  • Have a chronic lack of sleep

  • Have chronic medical conditions, such as kidney dysfunction or cirrhosis of the liver.

What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

At Optimal Health TRT there are three main medications for testosterone treatment which are:

1. Testosterone Injections (used to optimize both Free and Total Testosterone levels)

2. Enclomiphene  (helps maintain the natural production of hormones and aids in preventing testicular reduction)

3. Estrogen Blockers (used to control the levels of estrogen in men’s bodies.)

These treatment options aim to improve men’s overall health and quality of life and work best when you make lifestyle changes such as getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, moderating your alcohol intake, and losing weight

What Should I Expect During The Process?

The process of Testosterone Replacement Therapy involves just a few steps.
