Low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism or testosterone deficiency, is a condition where the testes do not produce enough testosterone. This can negatively impact vitality and quality of life. As men age, testosterone levels often naturally decline, causing symptoms like:
If experiencing multiple signs of low testosterone, a blood test can check current hormone levels. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be an option if levels are below normal.
Testosterone therapy can relieve troublesome symptoms of low T. Benefits include:
With customized treatment, many men report feeling 10-15 years younger. TRT can help regain that youthful vitality.
There are several methods to deliver supplemental testosterone:
Testosterone injections are a common and effective treatment approach. A prescribed dosage is self-administered 1-2 times per week. This provides the testosterone the body needs to function at optimal levels.
Advantages include infrequent dosing and low cost. Potential side effects like irritation at injection site or fluctuations in mood/energy can often be managed by adjusting frequency and dosage.
Topical gels supply testosterone through daily application to the upper arms, shoulders or abdomen. The testosterone absorbs through the skin into the bloodstream.
Gels allow flexible, daily dosing to keep levels steady. However, the application site needs protection for a period to avoid transfer to partners or children. Skin irritation is also possible.
Testosterone pellets are implantable capsules that release hormones steadily over 3-6 months. A simple medical procedure inserts pellets under the skin.
This approach provides stable testosterone levels with fewer peaks and valleys. It does require periodic repeat implant procedures. Infection or expulsion are rare risks.
With an array of treatment options available, receiving care from an experienced testosterone clinic is advised. Hormone balance is complex and requires an individualized approach.
