Testosterone therapy

What is testosterone therapy?

Testosterone therapy, also called testosterone replacement therapy or TRT, is a treatment that attempts to raise low testosterone levels in men back to normal levels. As men age, their bodies often produce less testosterone, resulting in symptoms like low energy, reduced muscle mass, and lower libido.

Testosterone is an important hormone that plays a role in several bodily functions in men, including:

The goal of testosterone therapy is to supplement testosterone via gels, injections, patches, or pellets to bring levels back up to improve low T symptoms. It can be an effective treatment when levels are clinically low, body mass is decreasing, and symptoms are negatively impacting quality of life.

However, testosterone therapy does come with some risks, like fluid retention, enlarged prostate, enlarged breasts, and overproduction of red blood cells. It’s also expensive and usually lifelong. That’s why comprehensive lab testing, close monitoring under a doctor’s supervision, and trying lifestyle changes first are so important.
