Understanding testosterone replacement therapy
- Posted on: Dec 15 2019
While many men are intrigued by the concept of testosterone replacement therapy, they need to be fully educated on the experience to ensure they are aware of the pros and cons of treatment. Testosterone replacement therapy may be right for some patients who visit Infinity Health and Wellness in Gilbert, AZ. Drs. Patrick M. Hines and Joel Salter encourage patients to schedule a consultation at the practice to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for this or other hormone replacement solutions available at their office.
Understanding how testosterone impacts the body
Our doctors describe testosterone as the hormone that is primary produced in the male testicles. This hormone is best for maintaining a man’s:
- Sex drive
- Sperm production
- Red blood cell production
- Muscle strength and mass
- Facial and body hair
- Bone density
- Fat distribution
When men age, they will gradually lose their higher levels of testosterone. These levels gradually decline after the age of thirty. While most cases of testosterone level drops are caused by natural aging, it may also be a sign of another condition such as hypogonadism. Men should be thoroughly evaluated to rule out any medical condition that can result in the dropping levels of testosterone separate from those experienced from aging.
What are the signs of declining testosterone levels?
- Reduced sexual desire and function
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Reduced muscle bulk and strength
- Increased boy fat
- Decreased bone density
- Body hair loss
- Decreased motivation and self-confidence
- Difficulty concentrating
- Poor memory
How does testosterone therapy work?
In the treatment of low testosterone levels, the doctors of Infinity Health and Wellness will evaluate the patient’s current levels and provide supplements that can help increase the testosterone in the body. With this, many men feel increased energy and vitality.
