Hormone replacement therapy, or testosterone replacement, is a well-established treatment that helps men suffering from abnormally low testosterone levels or who have a testosterone deficiency. This may occur naturally or as a result of a medical issue such as hypogonadism, where the sex glands (or testes) produce little or no sex hormones.
Testosterone is an important hormone in the body, responsible for keeping certain bodily functions running smoothly. These include:
• Maintaining healthy levels of red blood cells
• Maintaining bone density
• Sexual development
• Reproductive function
• Building muscle
When testosterone levels begin to dip or drop together, the results can be wide and varied. They may include problems like erectile dysfunction, fatigue, decreased libido, hair loss, weight fluctuations, and urinary problems.
By raising the amount of testosterone in the body back to normal levels via HRT, many patients find that their energy levels improve, their libido increases, and they’re not as tired. Other improvements include:
• Improved energy levels
• Improved libido/sex drive
• An increase in bone density
• Increased face/body hair production
• Increased red blood cell production
• Muscle growth
Testosterone plays a key role in controlling and maintaining many of the body’s essential functions. When your body stops producing enough of this hormone, the resulting symptoms can be uncomfortable and stressful. They can also negatively impact your personal and work life.
While health conditions can significantly dampen the levels of testosterone produced in the body, age also plays a factor. As a man get older, their hormone levels naturally start to decline. This can lead to hormonal imbalances that can affect an individual physically and mentally.
Low amounts of testosterone in the body can result in erectile dysfunction, decreased sex drive, hair loss, fatigue, weight loss, weight gain, brain fog, anxiety, depression, heart problems, and urinary problems.
