Many people ask “Is TRT Safe” or “Is TRT Worth It?” “Do I need to do TRT forever?” We get our guidance from our medical director and from guidance from organizations like the AUA. The American Urological Association
was f
ounded in 1902 and are the premier urologic
association in the world. They provide invaluable support and guidance to the urologic community of healthcare professionals and practitioners. They promote
the highest standards of urological clinical care through education, research and
by formulating health care policies for physicians and offer evidenced based
research and help in creating a medical diagnosis and dosing protocols for
conditions like male hypogonadism and the treatment with testosterone therapy,
also known as TRT.

NovaGenix TRT for men with Low Testosterone 

What is low-T, and how do I know or find out if I have low testosterone?
A: Low-Testosterone or
Low-T is also known as male hypogonadism, which occurs when a male doesn’t produce
enough testosterone in their body. Testosterone is a man’s sex hormone which is
one of the primary drivers of how boys develop into men. This hormone becomes
prominent during puberty and is the biggest influencer in developing the
physical characteristics of men, i.e. body and facial hair, muscle development,
deepening of the voice etc.…. Testosterone levels can also greatly affect men’s
sex drive, ability to achieve and maintain erections, overall mood, lean muscle
mass, body fat, and bone mineral density. Testosterone is also important in the
normal production of sperm.
You may have low-testosterone
if you have the following problems:
  • reduced libido
    (sex drive)
  • less
    frequent engagement in sexual activities
  • weaker and
    less frequent erections
  • fatigue
    and less energy
  • feelings
    of depression
  • decreased
    muscle mass and strength
  • increase
    in body fat
  • anemia
    (low blood iron)
  • loss of
    bone mineral density and strength
If you think you might have
low testosterone, it’s very important to see a doctor like the experts at NovaGenix in Jupiter, Florida,
who will examine you and evaluate your health history. A simple blood test
can measure your testosterone levels.
Is Testosterone Therapy Safe?
How can I found out if TRT, or testosterone replacement therapy is right for
A: If you think you
have one or more symptoms of low testosterone, it’s important to make sure you
have andropause and not something else which may be exacerbated by non-treatment
or TRT. Many symptoms of low-T can be caused by other health issues which is
why an in-person exam, blood test, and medical history are vital. As an example,
erectile dysfunction (ED) is often caused by poor circulation and cardiovascular
health, so making sure you have a healthy heart becomes priority number 1. TRT
can absolutely help men with low-T, and change their lives, however, you should
not taking testosterone if you don’t actually have low T.
Before you take TRT, you
should visit a clinic like NovaGenix, that
specializes in HRT for men with Low Testosterone
A doctor who is trained
in testing, diagnosing and treating low-T should examine you carefully and take
a detailed medical history, giving you a simple physical exam and performing
blood testing to check your blood health and hormone levels. The doctor should speak
with you about the benefits, possible side effects and risks prior to starting
TRT. You and the doctor can then best decide whether HRT is right for you.
What are other possible risks or side effects from TRT?
A: The are a few possible
side effects and risks that could be caused by TRT:
  • acne
  • breast
    swelling or nipple soreness (usually from high estrogen)
  • increased red
    blood cell count (hematocrit)
  • swelling (edema)
    in the feet or ankles
  • reduced
    size in testicles
  • reduced
    sperm county or infertility
Low T Therapy in Palm Beach County Florida

TRT can possibly lower
sperm production so men wishing to conceive should speak to the doctor about
how to counter this possible side effect. Men with advanced prostate cancer
should avoid taking TRT because it may increase the rate that the prostate
cancer grows but should be noted that the Urological society came out with a
definitive study showing no relation to TRT and cancer, yet it could make the
cancer worse for someone who goes on it. (see link for info on the TRT not
causing prostate cancer)
A final thought about TRT?
A: It is important to
talk with your doctor about both of the benefits and possible risks involved
with starting testosterone replacement. If both you and the doctor feel that
TRT is right for you, you should have regular check-ups and follow up with
blood tests for free and total testosterone levels, estradiol, PSA a CBC and
CMP at a minimum. The PSA is a test for prostate health, and hematocrit is
included with the CBC and measures how many red blood cells you have based on
your total blood volume.
