Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a medical treatment designed to restore optimal testosterone levels in men living with low testosterone or hypogonadism.

In men, testosterone is a hormone produced in the testicles and has a crucial role in the development of the male reproductive organs and tissues during fetal development and puberty. In adult men, this hormone helps maintain sex drive, muscle mass, bone density, facial and body hair, sperm production, and mood regulation.

We understand that living with low testosterone can have profound effects on your mental and physical health. Our expert team at Preventus Concierge Medicine provides specialized solutions to restore your vitality and well-being, always tailored to your specific needs.

Low Testosterone in Men

Common symptoms associated with low testosterone include:

  • Muscle mass loss and low strength
  • Weight gain with an increase in body fat, particularly in the abdominal region.
  • Fatigue and reduced energy levels
  • Mood changes such as irritability, mood swings, and even symptoms of depression

Factors Behind Low Testosterone

Although testosterone levels naturally decline with age, there are several factors that can lead to low testosterone levels, such as:

  • Hormonal disorders, liver disease, and chronic kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Injury to the testicles
  • Testicular cancer or cancer treatment
  • Chronic stress and depression
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Inadequate sleep 

Medical Conditions Caused by Low Testosterone

Low levels of testosterone can lead to the development of multiple health conditions, including:

  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
  • Decreased libido or interest in sexual activity.
  • Low levels of sperm production and Infertility
  • Osteoporosis, weakened bones, and an increased risk of fractures
  • Metabolic Conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and more.
  • Type 2 Diabetes and insulin resistance issues.

How Testosterone Replacement Therapy is Administered

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) helps manage the symptoms associated with low testosterone levels in men. It can be administered in various forms, including the following:

Injectable TRT

TRT injections are administered directly into the muscle, usually in the thigh, buttock, or upper arm. These offer long-term results, usually requiring a reapplication every 1-4 weeks.

This method is often considered more effective but may cause discomfort at the injection site and requires consistent adherence to the injection schedule.

Topical TRT

Topical TRT involves applying testosterone directly to the skin as a gel, cream, or patch for it to be absorbed into the bloodstream. These treatments are usually administered once per day. If combined with other ointments, topical TRT can cause irritation.

Sublingual TRT

Sublingual testosterone is administered as a tablet that dissolves under the tongue and is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. This is a quick and easy administration but may lead to a shorter duration of results compared to other methods. 

Testosterone Pellets

Pellets are small implants placed in your hip or buttock area. These release a steady, low dose of testosterone over several months, from 3 to 6 months.

Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can effectively address a wide range of health issues in men. Some of the benefits it offers include:

  • Improved mood and mental well-being
  • Increased energy levels
  • Enhanced libido and sexual function
  • Increased muscle mass and strength
  • Improved bone density
  • Reduction in fat mass
  • Cognitive function
