What Are the Age Factors With Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
It’s a natural process for your testosterone levels to decline gradually as you get older. Once a man reaches around 40 years old, there’s typically around 1 percent decrease in testosterone each year. You want to assess with our team if your lowered testosterone level is a normal decline because of aging or if it’s a result from a medical condition. You can learn if your testosterone decline is because of a problem with the testicles or with the pituitary gland that controls hormone production.
What Are the Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Men who use this therapy show an increase in bone density, which helps lower your risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Researchers found that testosterone replacement therapy is associated with an improvement in hemoglobin levels among men who have anemia. In addition to these physical benefits, you may also experience improvements in mood, libido, and cognition with this therapy.
It is best to look at testosterone replacement therapy not as a wonder drug, but something that will help contribute to improving aspects of these conditions or disease that may be developing. They can be part of your wellness and treatment strategy. With exercise as a natural way to boost testosterone, along with this therapy, you will lose weight and increase muscle mass.
What Are the Risks With Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
When considering this approach, it’s okay for you to question if it’s right for you. You want to know if there are any risks of testosterone replacement therapy. We carefully assess with you the potential health problems that could occur without therapy as demonstrated in patients from recent studies. You want to weigh this against any potential risk and make the best-informed decision.
If you have specific medical conditions, it is important to keep this in mind and be transparent during a consultation. Our team, led by Dr. Myers, will review these possibilities based on your current health condition and possible treatment regimen. We will ensure you are fully informed to make the best choice.
