Low T TreatmentBoca Raton, FL
While men’s testosterone levels naturally decline as they age, low T (low testosterone) treatment is available to treat this hormone deficiency. Without professional intervention, low testosterone levels can negatively affect energy levels, sexual vitality, and quality of life.

The Importance of Testosterone
Testosterone is a male sex hormone produced primarily by the testicles. It is responsible for the normal growth and development of male sexual characteristics. While both men and women produce testosterone, women produce it in much smaller amounts.
Testosterone levels are an integral part of a man’s sex drive and ability to produce sperm. However, testosterone is more than just a sex hormone. It also helps men maintain their energy levels, focus, and memory. Testosterone levels can also impact a man’s bone and muscle mass, red blood cell production, and even mood.
Low Testosterone Symptoms
Testosterone production in men increases significantly during puberty but can begin to decrease at as early as 20 years old. According to the Mayo Clinic, after the age of 30 or 40, men experience about a 1% testosterone decline every year. Low testosterone levels are associated with andropause, also known as male menopause.
Men going through this testosterone level decline may experience various physical and emotional symptoms. While low T affects every man differently, some symptoms that may accompany this condition include:
- Decreased sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Feelings of depression
- Less body hair
- Less energy
- Low self-esteem
- Moodiness and irritability
- Thinner bones
- Weight gain
Causes of Low Testosterone
Low T is a common occurrence since most men experience progressively declining testosterone levels as they get older. Besides normal aging, there are various potential primary or secondary causes of low T levels. A primary cause of low T levels is underactive testes that do not produce sufficient testosterone levels for optimal health and sexual vitality. Underactive testes may result from an accident, illness, or inherited condition such as undescended testicles or Klinefelter’s syndrome.
Secondary causes of low T levels include damage to the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, which controls hormone production in the testes. Other possible circumstances that can lead to low T levels include alcohol abuse, certain medications, and chronic health issues. Being obese and having a high body fat percentage can affect a man’s hormone production. Additionally, severe emotional or physical stress from an illness can cause a man’s reproductive system to shut down temporarily.
Low T Treatment
Low T levels can prevent men from living their lives to the fullest. Fortunately, with TRT, men no longer have to accept declining testosterone levels as an inevitable part of life. While traditional TRT methods typically involve administering testosterone through injection or topical gels, patches, or pills, our team provides bio-identical testosterone hormone pellet therapy.
Testosterone hormone pellets differ from testosterone injections by steadily releasing testosterone into the system instead of in irregular peaks and valleys. Our physicians regulate the patient’s hormone levels throughout treatment to ensure that they are balanced. Our bio-identical TRT will help patients feel restored, enhancing their sexual vitality, work performance, energy and motivation, and ability to concentrate.
The Treatment Process
Testosterone pellets are small and easy to administer. Our physician implants the pellets under the patient’s skin so they can slowly release testosterone. Compared to other forms of testosterone therapy, pellets are long-acting, delivering a steady dose of testosterone over three to six months.
Finding the right dosage to improve a patient’s low T symptoms can take some time. However, this is a crucial part of treatment since too much testosterone can result in adverse side effects, such as a sudden increase in a patient’s red blood cell count. Our team has the specialized knowledge to determine the optimal dose for a patient’s body.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is TRT to treat low testosterone levels safe?
Yes, TRT to treat low T levels is safe. Testosterone does not cause dangerous side effects, but testosterone overdosing and the resulting metabolites, Estrogen, and DHT, can. We provide bio-identical TRT that does not increase the patient’s risk of other health issues. A retrospective analysis in Therapeutic Advances in Endocrinology and Metabolism found 1,204,012 subcutaneous pellet implant procedures resulted in an overall complication rate of less than 1%.
What side effects are associated with low T treatment?
While low T treatment is generally safe, some side effects are associated with this treatment. Possible side effects include acne or oily skin, difficulty urinating, worsening sleep apnea, smaller testicles, skin irritation, increased red blood cell count, and decreased sperm count. Men receiving low T treatment will have regular follow-up appointments with our team so we can manage their dosage and ensure a safe treatment process.
Who is a good candidate for low T treatment?
Most men experiencing physical and mental symptoms of low testosterone are good candidates for low T treatment. TRT can help those who want to restore their energy and virility. However, our low T treatment at Simply Men’s Health is not for people who simply want to increase their muscle mass.
Can I prevent low testosterone?
There are no sure ways to prevent low T caused by genetic conditions or trauma to the testes, pituitary gland, or hypothalamus. Fortunately, our team can help men restore their declining testosterone levels so they can boost their energy, libido, and more. Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with exercise, good nutrition, and weight management can help keep testosterone levels balanced.
How is low testosterone diagnosed?
A blood test that measures the amount of testosterone in the blood allows for an accurate low T diagnosis. Several measurements are necessary to determine if a patient has low testosterone since levels can vary throughout the day. Men generally produce the highest levels of testosterone in the morning.
