Testosterone is a sex hormone; It is naturally produced in both men and women but is made at a much higher level in men. Low testosterone is not just about libido or becoming stronger and bigger in the gym. While this can be an effect of treatment, the condition known as Low T is much more in-depth. It is what gives a male the secondary sex characteristics of a man. Testosterone – which can profoundly reduce energy levels – is responsible for stimulating muscle growth, achieving normal erectile and cognitive functions, restore energy levels and maintaining normal bone density.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy can include three base medications, based on what the doctor recommends. First, our medical doctors work with different types of testosterone. The appropriate form and dosage of testosterone would be used to safely increase levels. Additional medications to ensure your natural production does not decline may also be included in your therapy. These clinically induce testosterone production in the testes, to prevent testicular shut down or atrophy. And finally, an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) may be used to reduce the action of estrogen while taking external testosterone. The AI would be used to prevent a condition called gynecomastia, or the enlargement of glandular tissue on the male chest.
