- “What is testosterone replacement therapy” is a surprisingly common question that we get at NovaGenix. There are so many conflicting ideas about TRT Therapy that it can be difficult to navigate the field of hormone replacement and understand the risks of low T therapy as well as its benefits. Testosterone is a hormone that gets produced primarily by the testicles in men. Testosterone helps maintain several important aspects of a male’s health including but not limited to increasing/improving..
- Bone mineral density
- Fat distribution in the body
- Muscle strength and lean muscle mass
- Body and facial hair
- The production of red blood cells
- Libido/Sex drive
- The production of sperm
- Sleep quality
- Energy levels
- Mood and confidence
If you’re looking to get tested for andropause and want to begin testosterone therapy, its recommended that you look into a physician supervised testosterone therapy program. At a minimum you’ll need initial blood work to get started as well as an appointment with the doctor to discuss the signs and symptoms of male hypogonadism. Hypogonadism limits the males ability to produce whats considered normal amounts of testosterone due to a problem with their testicles or with the pituitary glands ability to release LH and FSH which control the production of testosterone in the testicles. Testosterone replacement therapy, in the form of injections or creams/gels, can help increase serum testosterone levels and improve the signs and symptoms of low t in these men who are on TRT Therapy.
When looking to get started, many men google something like “testosterone replacement therapy near me.” The sheer amount of clinics and physicians that pop up can be overwhelming so read their google reviews and get an idea about what type of care you’ll receive. When you find a clinic that has multiple positive ratings, you can give them a call and see if they’ll be forthcoming with answering your questions. If you ask them about charges or testosterone replacement therapy cost per month at their clinic and they can’t answer, it may raise red flags.
According to Healthline, the costs for TRT will vary based on things like what type/dose you’re prescribed and the other medications like an AI and HcG. For patients with health insurance trying to get TRT covered, you likely won’t pay the full cost. They typically will cover the costs of a physician consult and then each policy will have differences in covering medication, supplies, labs, co pay etc… The actual cost can also vary based on where you live and if there’s a generic version available or not. Typically, you can expect to pay somewhere starting on the low end from $20 to $1,000 per month on the high end.
