WHAT IS TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT?

Testosterone replacement is used to treat low levels of testosterone in men or to stimulate puberty in cases where it is delayed. Testosterone deficiency can result in a number of symptoms including decreased sexual desire, tiredness, depression, decreased male characteristics, and brittle bones.

Low testosterone treatment, or testosterone therapy, offers many benefits to those who are suffering from the effects low testosterone. The benefits of testosterone therapy are typically noticeable in the first few weeks of treatment.

Low testosterone or Low T levels are associated with chronic health issues. Low testosterone levels have been associated with obesity, diabetes and depression. The body slows production of testosterone for various reasons. A simple exam can determine if your testosterone levels are adequate. When a man’s testosterone level is returned to optimal range, his energy level, muscle mass and bone density increase, his sex-drive improves, as does the quality of his sleep. It has also been found that men with normal levels of this hormone live an average of eight years longer. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) reverses the aging process. Though any man can experience andropause, those who are overweight, diabetic, have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, or asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, have a higher propensity to experience low testosterone symptoms. The good news is that Low T can be reversed with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). The treatment is simple and often consists of either topical creams or injections.

If you have occasional erectile dysfunction (ED) or premature ejaculation (PE), UMC can help. All men experience sexual performance issues as they age. Testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues. It stimulates a man’s sex drive and sexual function. For many men, a low testosterone or Low T treatment can bring back full functionality and increased sensation. For former athletes or serious weekend warriors. Being the cornerstone of male health, testosterone is essential for a man’s body and well-being. Low testosterone patients that receive treatment, eat a sensible diet, and stay active, show a dramatic increase in the ability to develop muscle and lose fat. There is such a strong effect, that many professional and amateur athletes with low levels of testosterone use TRT to maintain their peak physical shape and promote fast recovery after grueling workouts. Men who are demanding on their bodies, such as former professional athletes, often experience low testosterone levels toward the end of their career or shortly thereafter. Low T treatments, such as TRT, have helped professional athletes and serious weekend warriors recover faster from years of extensive workouts. TRT or similar treatments enable them to continue to pursue their fitness goals

WHY IS MY BODY NOT PRODUCING THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF TESTOSTERONE?

Men begin to lose 1 to 3% of their testosterone every year, beginning at age 30. Because our ancestors only lived an average of 35 years, our bodies didn’t need prolonged testosterone production. As medical science has increased our life expectancy to over 80 years, doctors are now discovering many chronic health issues associate with low testosterone.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY AND CAN ALL MEN BENEFIT FROM IT?

All men with Low T can benefit from healthy levels of testosterone. The benefits include stronger sex drive, improved sexual performance, a stronger sense of well-being, increased muscle mass, the ability to manage stress better, mental clarity, less belly fat, improved physical performance, and increased endurance, strength, and bone density. Research has shown that men with healthy levels of testosterone can live up to eight years longer.

HOW IS TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY ADMINISTERED?

Either by weekly self injections or by applying a topical cream daily.

IF MY TESTOSTERONE IS LOW, WILL I HAVE TO TAKE THE TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY FOREVER?

Medical studies conclude that it is safe and effective to stay on a TRT program for 20+ years. As long as a patient is monitored every 6-12 months and remains in a normal human testosterone range, there is no need to ‘cycle’ off of testosterone replacement. Should you decide to stop the program, your body will go back to producing those levels it produced prior to therapy (less the natural 1 to 3% testosterone degradation for each of those years and for each year to follow).

All men with Low T can benefit from healthy levels of testosterone. The benefits include stronger sex drive, improved sexual performance, a stronger sense of well-being, increased muscle mass, the ability to manage stress better, mental clarity, less belly fat, improved physical performance, and increased endurance, strength, and bone density.
