Testosterone is an essential hormone that plays a crucial role in men's health and vitality. As men age, their testosterone levels often decline, leading to signs and symptoms of low testosterone or hypogonadism. Recognizing the signs of testosterone deficiency early on is key to seeking timely treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About

What is testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy, often abbreviated as TRT, is a treatment where testosterone medication is administered to raise low testosterone levels in men back up to normal levels. Testosterone is an important hormone for physical and mental health in men. As men age, testosterone levels often decline causing symptoms like low energy, reduced muscle mass, increased body fat, and reduced libido. TRT can help alleviate these symptoms.

What are the benefits of TRT?

There are many potential benefits of TRT for men with low testosterone levels. TRT can help increase energy and vitality, boost libido and sexual functioning, build lean muscle mass while reducing body fat, strengthen bones, improve mood and motivation, sharpen memory and focus, and help reduce cholesterol. In short, normalizing testosterone levels can help men feel healthier, stronger, sharper, and more youthful.

How is TRT administered?

There are several methods to deliver supplemental testosterone. Most commonly TRT involves self-administering testosterone injections such as testosterone cypionate once or twice per week. Testosterone can also be administered via gels, creams and patches applied to the skin daily. There are also testosterone pellets that can be surgically implanted under the skin every few months to release hormones. Your doctor will help determine the best delivery method for your needs.

What are the side effects or risks?

When properly monitored by a physician, TRT is generally safe but there are some potential side effects to be aware of. These include acne, sleeping difficulties, headaches, anxiety or aggression, breast enlargement if testosterone doses are too high, testicular shrinkage and fertility issues. Elevated hematocrit from TRT may require periodic blood donation. It’s important to have regular bloodwork to make sure testosterone levels are optimized by your physician to minimize side effects.

Who is a good candidate for TRT?

Testosterone replacement therapy might be a good option for otherwise healthy men over 30 years old with persistent symptoms of low testosterone such as low libido, erectile dysfunction, diminished energy and strength, reduced muscle mass, increased abdominal fat, and depressed mood that impacts quality of life. TRT can help get men’s health and vitality back on track after lifestyle changes and addressing other possible medical issues fail to relieve bothersome symptoms of low testosterone.
