Testosterone Replacement (TRT)

Does a naturally declining testosterone level cause the signs and symptoms of aging?

Can testosterone therapy promote youth and vitality?

Testosterone therapy works to replace the testosterone that gets lost with age. This is important because when you start to lose testosterone, it can affect your physical and sexual vitality. Things like fatigue and erectile dysfunction are not uncommon as testosterone levels decrease. It is important to replace the lost testosterone in order to avoid the negative effects and maintain your youthful vitality.

What Testosterone Does

For men to have optimal health, they must have balanced testosterone levels. When the levels of this hormone are at the right level, it works to maintain the following in men:

  • Bone density
  • Muscle mass and strength
  • Sex drive
  • Fat distribution
  • Red blood cell production
  • Sperm production

All of these actions are critical for optimal youth and vitality in men. Testosterone therapy can help to ensure that men have the right levels of this hormone so that these functions and effects do not suffer.

Monitored while on testosterone replacement therapy

Men receiving testosterone therapy should be monitored regularly for adverse effects and treatment effectiveness, including testosterone measurements, complete blood count to measure hematocrit, and prostate-specific antigen testing.
