Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) administered by our medical professionals delivers the following benefits for most men:
- Improved sexual desire, drive, frequency, and overall sexual performance
- Lowers bad cholesterol (LDL) levels
- Increased muscle mass and strength
- Decreased body fat
- Increased confidence and a more positive mood
- Increased energy levels throughout the day
- A better night’s sleep
- Improved ability to handle stress
- Improved brain function and cognitive ability
- Better blood sugar regulation and decreased risk of diabetes
In a recent study, testosterone-deficient men also experienced weight loss as an added benefit of low testosterone treatment. On average, men that weighed 236 pounds before beginning testosterone treatment weighed 200 pounds after undergoing TRT. This weight loss was reportedly continued, with an average reduction in body weight ranging from about 4 percent after one year of treatment to more than 13 percent after five years. In addition, men lost an average of nearly 3.5 inches around their waist.
Other potential benefits of TRT include increased confidence and an improvement in work performance. With so many benefits, testosterone replacement therapy has become increasingly popular in the United States, with an increase of more than 500% in prescription sales of testosterone products since 1993.
Low T not only affects your sexual health, but your overall health. With TRT, men can experience beneficial effects on mood, increased energy, a better overall sense of well-being, better sexual function, increased lean body mass and muscle strength, erythropoiesis and bone mineral density (BMD), reduction of cardiovascular risk factors, improvement in growth hormone levels and a decrease in bad cholesterol levels.
While testosterone replacement therapy is not a “cure-all”, the benefits of testosterone therapy when done correctly greatly outweigh any potential risks. If side effects do occur, which are very rare, we are available to help you address them so you can continue to safely receive the benefits TRT.
