What is testosterone replacement therapy (TRT)?

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment that helps raise testosterone levels in men back to normal healthy levels. It is used to treat the symptoms of low testosterone, which may include decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, lack of energy, depressed mood, and others. TRT can be administered through injections, gels, patches, or pellets implanted under the skin. It's an effective therapy that can truly make a difference in a man's quality of life when properly managed by an experienced physician.

How do I know if I have low testosterone levels?

There are a few key signs and symptoms that may indicate low testosterone levels. These include reduced sex drive or erectile dysfunction, chronic fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat, mood changes like depression or irritability, and difficulty concentrating. If several of these symptoms sound familiar, getting your testosterone level checked with a simple blood test can help provide answers. We offer comprehensive testing to accurately diagnose if TRT may help.

What are the benefits of TRT?

TRT offers many potential benefits when low testosterone is effectively treated. Patients report improved energy levels, mood, motivation, muscle mass and strength, fat loss, sexual function, and overall better well-being. TRT allows guys to regain that youthful vitality they may have been missing. It helps them reclaim health and functioning often impacted by deficient testosterone.

How do you administer TRT?

There are several options available for administering testosterone replacement therapy. We often start patients on weekly or twice-weekly testosterone injections, which provide steady hormone levels. Testosterone gels that are rubbed on the shoulders or arms are another effective option. We also offer testosterone pellets, which are implanted under the skin every 4-6 months for slow steady release. The goal is to find the most convenient approach that keeps the patient’s levels in an optimal range. Each method has its own pros and cons.

What results can I expect from TRT?

Most patients begin experiencing beneficial effects from TRT within 2-4 weeks, like increased energy, better mood, and improved sexual function. However, maximum effects for muscle growth, fat loss, etc may take 4-6 months. It’s important to have realistic expectations about benefits, stay patient through the process, and properly manage treatments for optimal long-lasting results. Being on a medically supervised TRT regimen tailored to one’s needs offers the best chances of regaining peak performance.
