Low testosterone can negatively affect men of all ages. If you don’t have the energy to get through the day, if you can’t remember the last time you and your spouse had sexual intercourse, and notice your relationships and work are suffering, it may be your testosterone levels affecting your ability to live your best life. As we age, natural testosterone levels decline, but low testosterone can also be caused by many issues, including medical conditions, obesity, poor diet, alcohol use/abuse, stress and anxiety.
Low testosterone may also be contributing to health conditions such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Our goal is to educate you about low testosterone, causes of low testosterone, your low testosterone treatment options and inform you of the many low testosterone treatment options that are available to you at Regenerative Health NY.
Testosterone levels typically range from 200 to 1000 units in men. While many in the medical community look at 300 as the ‘magic’ number, men can be symptomatic at higher levels. Our physicians use laboratory data to establish your optimal range and keep you there. Once we receive the report from your blood draw, our physicians will take a deep dive into your overall test results and symptoms. We will meet to discuss your symptoms and goals and determine your plan, including TRT, if necessary. A few things we look for include:
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF LOW TESTOSTERONE?
Testosterone is a critical sex hormone in our bodies that helps build muscle, burn fat, maintain erections, increase libido, and more. However, when your testosterone levels start to decline, whether it be because of age or external factors, symptoms of low testosterone may start to appear. If you notice any of the following symptoms, you may be a candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy:
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TRT?
When patients start TRT, they typically begin to see results in two to three months with optimal results after six months of therapy. There are several types of testosterone treatments available, however, we recommend testosterone injections. Most patients see the best overall benefits from testosterone injections. Benefits of TRT may include:
In most cases, a blood test and medical history are all that’s needed to diagnose and recommend an appropriate treatment for low testosterone. If you have health conditions or the provider suspects an underlying health condition could be the cause, you may be referred for further testing.
Testosterone is the major sex hormone in males and plays a number of important roles, such as:
TESTOSTERONE THERAPY HAS VARIOUS RISKS, INCLUDING:
NOTE* MEN WHO RECEIVE TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY HAD A DECREASED RISK OF PROSTATE CANCER COMPARED TO THOSE WHO DID NOT USE THE THERAPY, AND A DECREASED RATE OF AGGRESSIVE PROSTATE CANCER.
Testosterone Replacement Linked to Lower Rates of Aggressive Prostate Cancer. A nested case-control study based included all 38,570 prostate cancer cases diagnosed from 2009 to 2012, along with 192,838 age-matched men without prostate cancer. The results of the analysis were published online and in print in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
For men, who are on TRT and who would like to come off of TRT to “take a break” or men who use recreational anabolics; and would like to restart their own natural production of testosterone.
People with history of heavy use of anabolic steroids usually lose their fertility, either temporarily, or even sometimes permanently! The trained professionals at Regenerative Health have the ability to monitor, test, and reactivate your natural production.
