Male Hormones and TRT
A proactive approach to maintaining your health and to decrease symptoms of male andropause.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is just as important for men as Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is for women. As we age, both men and women face a decline in hormones. This decline is reflected in a variety of symptoms associated with low testosterone (hypogonadism) such as:
Fatigue, Poor recovery, Decreased memory, Loss of muscle mass, Irritability, Lack of libido, Fat gain, Depression, and Erectile Dysfunction. The presence of these symptoms, or the severity of said symptoms, does not diagnosis the condition of hypogonadism but can direct the doctor to investigate by ordering appropriate laboratory tests.
Other concerns may be the association of some diseases indirectly connected with lower testosterone such as
Cardiovascular disease, Metabolic Syndrome X, Dementia (including Alzheimer’s), Cancer (including Prostate), Osteoporosis, Diabetes, and Depression.
Fortunately, scientific studies have shown that TRT does reduce the risk of developing, or dramatically improves and/or even eliminates these diseases or symptoms. In fact, appropriate TRT has been shown to reduce your risk of cancer due to its immune system boosting benefits.
Most men report dramatic increases in sexual performance, up to and including a reversal of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) symptoms. They also have much more energy, better stamina, increased muscle tone and decreased fat, and an improvement in their ability to concentrate and remember things. All of a sudden they are being active well into the evening again, enjoy great sex, can catch up to the grand-kids, and hit that golf ball 40 yards further. They claim to have regained the “edge” in their lives again, and this is in addition to the dramatic decreases in the risks for the serious diseases previously listed above.
