The Truth About Testosterone
As we age, our testosterone levels decline. Low testosterone levels can result in symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, decreased muscle mass, decreased sexual function, and even depression. Fortunately, our Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) program helps counteract this natural process by raising your testosterone to an optimum level. Patients can expect to receive benefits such as stronger bone density, fat redistribution, increased muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, better sex drive, better sperm production, more energy and an improved attitude.
So what is testosterone? Testosterone is the primary androgenic hormone and is necessary for overall health and well-being. It plays a key role in the development of male sex organs and is vital in the production of secondary sexual characteristics, including body and facial hair growth, deepening of the voice, and increased muscle mass and bone density.
When the body fails to produce normal levels of testosterone, a deficiency occurs. This can result in fatigue, decreased libido, weight gain, decreased muscular mass, erectile problems, osteoporosis and even depression.
Once one of our experts determines that you have a testosterone deficiency, testosterone replacement therapy may be recommended. When you’re undergoing this therapy, we will monitor your testosterone levels to make sure they stay within your optimal range. Through lab testing, our physicians will also make sure you do not have any negative side effects.
