Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men
NexGen Health and Wellness
The effects of low testosterone can leave you feeling tired, weak, and with a multitude of other afflictions. But it is more than just feeling tired all the time. Men with low testosterone often report muscle loss, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, and difficulty concentrating. While testosterone production in the body tends to decline around the age of 30, some bodies do not produce it as readily as others do. Ultimately, the side effects of low testosterone can begin to seriously impact mental and physical health. Testosterone replacement therapy is a safe and effective choice for relieving these symptoms, and to get back to your best self. Learn the facts, get more information on how testosterone works, further side effects of low testosterone, and how NexGen Health & Wellness utilizes testosterone replacement therapy to help make a significant difference in the lives of men.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone mostly produced in testicles. While women also produce testosterone in the ovaries, it is in much smaller amounts. As with other sex hormones, production in the body increases significantly throughout puberty and tapers off around 30. This hormone is most apparent in regulating sex drive, sperm production, bone and muscle mass, red blood cell production, and overall mood. As a vital part of how the body naturally functions, an absence of testosterone can lead to a variety of symptoms, such as:
- Decreased sex drive
- Low energy
- Weight gain
- Low mood
- Depressive feelings
- Thinner bones
- Low muscle mass
- Less body hair
While you may be prone to lower testosterone levels, hormone levels can drop from a variety of other causes such as age, testicle injury, chronic health conditions, and chronic health condition treatments.
How is Low Testosterone Treated?
At NexGen Health & Wellness, low testosterone is treated with hormone replacement therapy. A blood test is the typical method used to measure testosterone levels in the body, and a “normal” level will vary across individuals. After gathering information, additional testosterone will be administered to the body to make up for gaps. Ultimately, there is no one true dosage to get the best results. Hormone levels in the body naturally rise and fall, and NexGen will consistently test to get the best idea of what is going on in your body. Dosages are tailored to individual men after multiple rounds of testing and are actively monitored to ensure the best results. If you have been feeling tired, moody, and have a decreased sex drive, you may be a suitable candidate for testosterone replacement therapy.
