Testosterone Replacement Therapy

(Coming Soon)

Over 8 million Americans are taking testosterone and that number is climbing every year. Testosterone is usually produced in the testicles of men and in smaller amounts in the ovaries and adrenal glands of women. Maintaining your testosterone will make a difference in your overall health. Keeping up with your testosterone levels can help with your energy levels, and metabolism, and reduce diseases like osteoporosis/cardiovascular issues.

What are Normal Testosterone Levels?

Typically, normal testosterone levels in males range from about 300 to 750 ng/dL but begin to decline naturally around age 30 at about 1% per year. This is measured by a blood test, and the results will be reviewed by a doctor.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Common symptoms of low testosterone (Hypogonadism) that are significant to your daily life are fatigue, decreased libido, and weight gain (especially around the abdomen). Mood changes like irritability and depression can disrupt routine activities, lower productivity, and strain personal relationships, contributing to a poorer quality of life.

These changes not only impact mental health but can also increase the risk of physical health issues like cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis. Addressing these symptoms and the underlying causes of low testosterone is crucial for improving life quality and preventing further health complications.

When to See a Functional Medicine Doctor

When symptoms such as persistent fatigue, mood changes, decreased libido, difficulty in maintaining muscle mass, and unexplained weight gain persist and impact your quality of life. These symptoms, requiring professional evaluation, might indicate underlying health issues.

If low testosterone is diagnosed, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a common treatment, available in forms like injections, patches, gels, or tablets, aimed at restoring normal testosterone levels and alleviating related symptoms. TRT must be tailored and monitored for effectiveness and potential side effects, including cardiovascular risks and hormonal imbalances.
