What is testosterone, and how can it help me?

Testosterone is a hormone produced primarily in the testicles that helps maintain men’s bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, facial and body hair, red blood cell production, sex drive and sperm production. As men age their testosterone levels gradually decline — typically about 1% a year after age 30 or 40. This decline can result in symptoms such as decreased sex drive, less energy, weight gain feelings of depression moodiness low self-esteem less body hair thinner bones.

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), in the form of injections pellets patches or gels can improve these signs and symptoms by increasing testosterone levels back to normal levels. TRT can help reverse the effects of hypogonadism which hampers the ability to produce normal amounts of testosterone due to a problem with the testicles or with the pituitary gland that controls the testicles.

In conclusion TRT has many potential benefits for men experiencing symptoms related to low testosterone levels. It is important to speak with your provider about whether TRT is right for you.
