Testosterone Therapy Questions

Q: What is testosterone’s natural function?

Testosterone plays a very important role in the development of males. For example, it affects a young male’s physical and sexual development. In addition, it is even responsible for the development of the male sex drive and organs. Moreover, testosterone often affects how much energy, endurance and strength a male has. Therefore, since this hormone plays such a huge role, men often have testosterone therapy questions.In contrast to testosterone role in young men, in adults, testosterone also plays a very important role.  Fore example, testosterone helps to maintain healthy bone density, muscle mass, fat distribution, sperm count and the production of red blood cells. But, as a man gets older, his testosterone production will gradually decline starting from his 30s.  Therefore, by the time most men are 40, they will begin to notice the effects of lower testosterone levels.

Q: Why do some men opt for testosterone replacement therapy?

A growing number of men turn to TRT to reduce the effects of their declining testosterone levels. As a result, this has created an industry that generates over $5 billion each year. By restoring their testosterone levels, patients can improve their mental sharpness, sex drive, bone density and muscle mass.Testosterone replacement medication is most effective when used by men with low T levels. This condition is known as hypogonadism. Common symptoms of low testosterone include:
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Lower bone density
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • A lower rate of hair growth
  • Hot flashes
  • Development of breast tissue
  • Reduced libido
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
At times, TRT is needed to address other medical problems. Some men have conditions that lead to their body producing insignificant amounts of testosterone. Serious injuries that cause a lot of pain and treatments like chemotherapy can also reduce a man’s testosterone levels.

Q: Common Testosterone Therapy Questions: What type of TRT options are available?

There is a huge variety of testosterone products that patients get to choose from. There are patches, creams, pills, gels, implants and injections that can be used to keep a man’s testosterone levels in the healthy range.

Q: Are there any health risks associated with TRT?

According to the FDA, men undergoing testosterone replacement are 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. There has also been some controversy about TRT possibly speeding up the growth of prostate cancer cells, but studies are yet to indicate a link between the two.

Q. Does TRT make men stronger?

As was mentioned earlier, testosterone facilitates muscle growth and development, so men with healthy T levels are stronger than men with low testosterone levels. It goes beyond that, though. Having adequate testosterone levels gives the person more drive, energy and endurance to exercise regularly.
