Testosterone is a sex hormone that is important for men as it is the bio-chemical responsible for most sexual characteristics in men. Testosterone is in other words, the “male sex hormone.” Testosterone is the substance responsible for giving men the physical traits most often associated with being a man– body and facial hair, a deep voice, bigger/stronger muscles and more. During puberty, testosterone will helps build muscle, deepens a male’s voice, and increase the size of their testes and penis. During adulthood, testosterone will keep a man's muscle and bones strong and provides men with their sex drive or libido. Men's testosterone levels usually peak in their late teens and then unfortunately, after the age of 28-30, most men start experiencing a slow and steady drop in their testosterone at a rate of 1-2% a year. When a man reaches 40, he'll have a level significantly lower and if left untreated will experience a myriad of unwanted symptoms. A decline in libido and sex drive typically occurs when T levels fall, just to name a few of the problems that begin to occur. Many men chalk this up to just the natural part of aging and getting older. Fortunately there are things that we can do to help. The experts at NovaGenix can assist you to regain the vitality that you once had through a hormone replacement therapy regimen.
Ultimately, testosterone replacement therapy is a form of hormone replacement when we supplement your hormone levels, with bio-identical testosterone, to a therapeutic level, within normal ranges, typically between 300 to 1100 for adult men. We effectively bring your T levels back to a range where you will begin to feel more vibrant and healthy. TRT is usually prescribed to counter the symptoms of male hypogonadism or andropause, also called Low T. It’s most commonly administered either by injection or by use of skin creams and gels containing testosterone, however some men opt for testosterone pellets or patches. Some of the signs of Low Testosterone can include: · Depression · Low libido and sex drive · Lack of energy and fatigue · Decreased muscle tone and mass · Hair loss · Mood swings and Irritability · Lowered sense of self confidence · Mental Blocks and lack of drive and focus · Difficulty achieving and maintaining erections · Increases in body fat and weight gain , just to name a few.
TRT is not just to help men improve their performance in the bedroom and make them look better (although it certainly help with both), but instead testosterone therapy has several positive health benefits for men over 40. Testosterone Therapy Treatment has been shown by medical research to be safe for most men, however there remains several misconceptions about TRT even within the medical community. That is why it’s important to do research and speak to an expert in the field of HRT. As it turns out, being on a physician prescribed and monitored TRT program has several health benefits and many of the misconceptions about TRT have been discredited by the medical community Statements by the American Urological Association confirm its safety. (https://prostatecancernewstoday.com/2016/05/12/study-suggests-testosterone-therapy-not-raise-risk-aggressive-prostate-cancer/ ) Another recent study has shown that there is no increased the risk of heart disease or stroke as a result of TRT and even concluded that patients on a long-term testosterone replacement program could even benefit from BHRT and have shown a reduction in cardiovascular incidents and stroke. TRT is both safe and potentially improves not just vitality and quality of life but overall health as well (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/11/151109160558.htm)
Increased Muscle Mass
Testosterone replacement therapy produces an increase in a man’s lean body mass (muscle mass) for men with Low T. Patients usually see an increase in muscle, often three to six pounds of lean muscle within the first few months of treatment. If the individual is working out that number can increase as exercise and diet can help improve gains. As men age, they lose muscle mass, normally at a rate of 0.5 to 1.0% annually after they turn 40. This decrease in mass speeds up especially if the man has low T. Loss of muscle slows resting metabolism and the cycle gets worse. With TRT, increases in your lean body mass helps raise your metabolism and burn fat, keeping you fit and healthy as you age. Don’t worry about getting too big though while on TRT…Once hormone levels stabilize, increases in muscle level off, usually around six months of treatment.
The evidence is quite clear, though, that low testosterone significantly affects mood in hypogonadal males. Multiple studies using testosterone therapy have shown that testosterone therapy affects mood favorably. It’s also worth noting, several studies have shown that mood improves rapidly in a matter of days or weeks rather than months. For example, one study on Androgel showed that almost all the improvement in mood happened within 30 days in men on Androgel. Androgel is not known for really pushing one's testosterone levels that high. Men on injections will undoubtedly feel even stronger and more rapid elevations in mood.
More Energy...Less Fatigue
Men with Low T often complain of feeling lethargic. They come home and want to sit on the couch instead of going out to play in the yard with their kids. Once upon a time, they would be able to run all day and hit the gym at night before going out on the town, but now they seem to be a former shell of themselves. TRT can help improve energy levels and help a man regain the vitality they used to have. Men who start TRT and begin to experience increased energy levels, which in turn can help improve their overall quality of life. Men with low T often reported extreme fatigue and decreased energy levels. If you’re tired all of the time or if you find it difficult to get motivated to hit the gym and work out, you may have Low T.
Better “Vitality and Vigor” (Improved Sexual Performance and Libido)
Testosterone levels naturally rise in response to arousal and activity. Testosterone levels fall off during long periods of abstinence. In turn, more testosterone boosts libido, continuing the cycle. Testosterone has been shown to have a positive effect on a man’s sex drive and performance in the bedroom. Studies have also showed that women are more attracted to men who have higher levels of testosterone. It also helps many men improve their ability to get and sustain erections, so over all TRT will dramatically improve your love life.
Less Fat, More Muscle
Leaner body mass helps keep weight in balance and increases energy levels. There has been some evidence to suggest that testosterone treatment can reduce fat and increase muscle mass and strength. This effect is more significant if one combines treatment with weight training and exercise.
A recent study tested 108 men over the age of 65 and showed that testosterone treatment significantly reduced body fat, especially in the arms and legs. Those same men all had increases in their lean mass, mostly in the torso and abdominal area. The men had been treated with testosterone for 36 months.
Healthy Heart and Blood
A healthy heart pumps blood throughout the body, which gives our muscles and organs the oxygen needed for optimal performance.
Low T levels are linked to several cardiovascular risks. According to the Harvard Medical School, testosterone replacement therapy can widen the coronary arteries. This possibly can be very helpful for men with angina, chest pain, and pressure when your heart isn’t receiving enough blood.
Testosterone also can cause a rise in red blood cell counts, which is an excellent thing if you suffer from anemia (low red blood cell count).
Dr Sigman talks about the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy and how patients who start a TRT program can improve their overall health and wellness and not just look, but feel and live better.
Therapy will not help your body make more testosterone, so if you want to raise your levels, you’ll be on for life.
Nothing other than your levels will drop back to what they were pre-TRT
Only if you take testosterone without another medication, like HcG to stimulate your body to continue natural testosterone production.
Not on therapeutic doses. Actually, TRT has been shown to make men feel better and improve their moods so they’ll be less moody and feel happier while on therapy.
Not as long as your estrogen levels are kept in check and if needed an anti-estrogen pill will be prescribed.
As with the use of any medication, there could possibly be side effects to testosterone. With TRT, much of the side-effects have been grossly exaggerated. Our doctor will talk to you any possible side-effects, and through monitoring, we’ll keep you feeling your best and minimize the risks involved.
