Testosterone Replacement Therapy Q & A
Although testosterone is most commonly associated with masculinity and male sex drive, it a powerful hormone found in both men and women. Testosterone is more than just a sex hormone. Normal Testosterone levels help to maintain energy level, healthy mood, libido, muscle mass, focus, and memory. In addition to controlling libido and fertility, testosterone also regulates bone and muscle mass, fat distribution, red blood cell production, energy levels, memory, and even your mood. Even more important is the balance of testosterone to estrogen. As men age, their testosterone levels decrease, while their estrogen levels increase. As a consequence, this hormone imbalance increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancers. Therefore, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is essential for your overall health and well being as well as your sexual vitality.
What is Andropause? Do Men Experience Male Menopause?
Just as women experience symptoms of menopause, likewise, men go through a “male menopause” known as ANDROPAUSE (Irritable Male Syndrome). But unlike women whose hormone levels drop suddenly around age 50, men’s testosterone levels gradually start declining as early as age 20. In fact, starting around age 30, a man’s testosterone level declines by about 1% a year. Therefore, if you feel a bit sluggish, have decreased sexual desire, or notice an increase in fat or “man boobs,” you may be going through Male Menopause.

What Causes Low Testosterone?
Since, in most men, testosterone progressively decreases after the age of 30, low testosterone is a common, normal occurrence in middle-aged men. In addition, there are a number of factors such as obesity, some medications, chronic health issues, alcohol abuse, and stress, that accelerate testosterone decline.
Low T can also occur in younger men as well. However, when a younger man experiences low testosterone symptoms, it is crucial to see an endocrinologist. In this instance, Low T can be a sign of a serious medical condition or possibly even a tumor.
What are the Symptoms of Low Testosterone?
As a result of the natural gradual decline in testosterone levels, men can begin experiencing physical and emotional symptoms of Andropause. Although Low T affects everyone differently, some of the common symptoms include:
- Decreased Energy Level
- Decreased Motivation
- Weight Gain – Increased Fat Storage especially around the abdomen
- Insulin resistance and blood sugar elevation
- Metabolic syndrome
- Depression, Irritability, and Mood Swings
- Sleep Disturbance
- Memory Loss – Feeling “Foggy” or Lacking Mental Clarity

What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) aims to restore testosterone to physiological healthy levels and balance estrogen. Traditional treatment involves the administration of testosterone either by injection or topical skin creams, gels, or patches.
At Simply Men’s Health our physicians specialize in bio-identical Testosterone Hormone Pellet therapy. Instead of testosterone shots which produce peaks and valleys, pellets slowly release physiological levels of testosterone. In addition, with pellet hormone replacement therapy, we also regulate Estradiol levels as well. Maintaining physiological hormone balance is essential for normal sexual function as well as your overall psychological and physical health. In addition, physiological hormone balance helps protect against bone and muscle loss, fat accumulation, heart disease, strokes, and even some cancers.
Simply Men’s Health bio-identical therapeutic Testosterone replacement therapy will help you feel stronger and healthier as well as restore your sexual vitality. In addition, replacement therapy helps you perform better at work by increasing your energy and motivation, and by improving your memory, focus, and clarity of thought.
Does Testosterone Therapy Increase Risk of Cancer, Heart Disease, and Stroke?
The answer is NO! At Simply Men’s Health, bio-identical hormone replacement is safe. In fact, there is no association between physiological Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) and heart disease, stroke, or cancer. On the contrary, these are actually side effects due to testosterone overdosing or testosterone estrogen imbalance.
In fact, restoring testosterone to normal physiological levels is essential for longevity, a feeling of well-being, mental clarity, and sexual vitality! Furthermore, maintaining physiological testosterone estrogen balance protects your cardiovascular and prostate health.
What is the scientific evidence regarding TRT and prostate cancer, heart disease, and stroke?
Numerous medical studies have shown that there is NO association between normal physiological levels of testosterone and prostate cancer, heart disease, or stroke. Actually, to the contrary, prostate cancer becomes more prevalent at the time in a man’s life when testosterone levels decline.
Bassit et al “The benefits and risks of testosterone replacement therapy: a review, “Therapeutics & Clinical Risk Management 2009:5 427-448 Gould DC, Kirby RS “Testosterone replacement therapy for late onset hypogonadism: What is the risk of inducing prostate cancer?” Prostate Cancer Prostatic Disc. 2006: 9(1): 14-18. Morgentaler A, “Testosterone therapy and prostate risks: where’s the beef?” Can J Urol. 2006 Feb;13 Supple 1:40-43
So how did Testosterone Replacement Therapy get such a bad rap?
So how did this widespread belief, even in the medical profession, that TRT increases the risk of prostate cancer, heart disease, and stroke get started? Simply, these false beliefs got propagated because of doctors over dosing testosterone or men self-medicating “boot-legged” hormones.
A little science to explain:
In your body, excess testosterone is converted to Estrogens and DHT.
On average, a man only makes about 50-70mg of testosterone a week. But often, doctors prescribe topicals or shots that result in peak testosterone levels way above physiological levels. This EXCESS testosterone is then metabolized by the body to estrogens. In addition, the prostate itself converts excess testosterone to DHT.
So what are the dangers of increased DHT and Estrogen?
First, DHT is an extremely potent androgen made in the prostate. Notably, increased DHT is associated with BPH and prostate cancer. In addition, excess estrogens in men are associated with gynecomastia (man boobs), and an increased risk of stroke, heart disease, insulin resistance, BPH, and prostate cancer.
Scientific Explanation of TRT “side effects”
Therefore the “side effects” commonly blamed on Testosterone Replacement Therapy, are not caused by physiological hormone replacement. But rather, due to testosterone overdosing. Specifically, the increased levels of the metabolites Estrogen and DHT, as a result of testosterone overdosing, are the culprits.
Therefore, Testosterone Replacement Therapy has really gotten a “bad rap,” because of two reasons. First, too many doctors are overdosing patients. Secondly, men getting boot-legged hormones at gyms are overdosing.
Why is TRT important essential for my health?
In conclusion, TRT is safe! Testosterone overdosing and its resultant metabolites, NOT testosterone itself, cause the bad side effects. On the contrary, bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy doesn’t increase your risk of other health problems. In fact, normal testosterone levels are essential for good health, mental clarity, and sexual vitality. Moreover, physiological testosterone levels and hormone balance help prevent the development of high cholesterol, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and cancer.
