What is Low T?
Low T is short for low testosterone – a condition that affects most men as they age. Testosterone levels typically decline after the age of 30 and become more prevalent and symptomatic in men 40 and over. Low T causes older men to lose muscle, energy and motivation. It can affect a person’s mood, making them irritable and more prone to depression – often call “grumpy old man syndrome”. Low T is also a leading cause of sexual dysfunction in aging men, including a drop in libido and ability to get and maintain erections. Men also lose HGH, Human Growth Hormone, as they age and this to can be treated if necessary with Testosterone Replacement Therapy (or “TRT”).
What Are the Benefits of Hormone Therapy for Men?
Testosterone Replacement Therapy for men is becoming more and more common as men are increasingly aware of the potential benefits. Testosterone Replacement Therapy can help men improve their mental clarity and focus. Additional benefits include increased muscle mass, libido, and motivation, while decreasing central body fat. Symptoms of low testosterone and/or low HGH levels are common among men over the age of 30. EHormonesMD will develop an individualized and comprehensive treatment protocol to help you achieve the maximum benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Increased Sex Drive
For men with decreased libido or those who have problems with erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, Testosterone Replacement Therapy can be significantly beneficial. While many men as young as 30 require Testosterone Replacement Therapy to restore Testosterone levels, HRT is particularly beneficial for men over the age of 40, when testosterone levels may have reached a significant decline. Your EHormonesMD doctor will be able to determine whether Testosterone Replacement Therapy can help you fight the issues of waning libido and/or erectile dysfunction, and remove the need for ED medications.
Increase Muscle – Decrease Fat
Low levels of testosterone can lead to decrease in muscle mass, an increase in body fat and result in a decrease of bone mass over time. Several men experience the inability to achieve results from their work outs, which is usually a direct result of having low testosterone levels. Testosterone Replacement can help to counteract these physical changes and, in fact, clinical studies have shown that Men can see a 10% to 15% increase in muscle mass and protein synthesis in as little as 2 to 3 months. While many physical changes are normal for men as they age, testosterone treatment can offer significant benefits for men when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.
Improve Your Mood
While it might not sound obvious at first, Testosterone Replacement Therapy for men can actually help with some emotional problems that men experience as they age. Low Testosterone levels have shown to reduce self-confidence and motivation, which can have a negative impact on personal relationships and work results.. Feelings of sadness and depression, as well as the inability to concentrate on important tasks or remember important pieces of information are also common with decreased testosterone levels.
