What is testosterone?

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. It plays a vital role in men's health and development. Some key points about testosterone:

The testicles primarily produce testosterone in men. The hypothalamus and pituitary gland in the brain also play a role in testosterone production. Levels are controlled through a feedback loop based on current levels.

TRT can relieve troublesome low T symptoms. However, it does carry some risks like acne, enlarged prostate, testicular shrinkage and lower sperm production. It can affect heart health and sleep patterns in some men. Working closely with an experienced hormone therapy specialist ensures you receive the many benefits of testosterone therapy while minimizing risks. Monitoring and adjusting dosage over time helps optimize your personal treatment plan.
