Testosterone Replacement

Bioidentical Testosterone Replacement for Men

Are you no longer at the top of your game, whether the boardroom or bedroom? Getting older doesn’t mean you can’t feel like you are 20 again. If you tire easily, have trouble losing weight, exercise but just don’t notice the results, losing motivation, mood swings, and sex drive and erections are not as strong as they use to be, you may suffer from low testosterone levels.

Andropause is often called the “male menopause.” As men age, their bodies produce less and less testosterone. This lack of testosterone can lead to a number of symptoms that many men just accept as the “normal aging process”. A lot of men do not realize that these symptoms can be reduced or eliminated through Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).

Numerous changes are associated with an age-related decline in testosterone. Men can go through these changes quickly, or more typically, slowly over a period of time with a gradual hormone decline. Some men start this decline as early as their 30s, when the body’s natural production of testosterone starts to decline by 1 to 2% each year.

Male Hormone Decline

Studies show that men’s testosterone levels have been declining for decades. The most prominent, a 2017 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, revealed a “substantial” drop in U.S. men’s testosterone levels since the 1980s, with average levels declining by about 1% per year. This means, for example, that a 60-year-old man in 2015 had testosterone levels 17% lower than those of a 60-year-old in 1987. Another study of Danish men produced similar findings, with double-digit declines among men born in the 1960s compared to those born in the 1920s.

Testosterone Trends

In the largest study of its kind, researchers in Massachusetts measured testosterone levels in 1,532 men ages 45-79, between 1987 and 2014. Their findings, published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, showed that at any given age, average testosterone levels are significantly lower than they were 10 years ago and even lower than 20 years ago. Thus, even if your doctors says that your testosterone level is “normal for your age,” it may still be the cause of your loss of sense-of-well-being and quality of life.

What Are The Symptoms of Low Testosterone?

Symptoms of low testosterone can include:

Erectile dysfunction
Less sex drive
Feeling tired
Lacking initiative
Being less assertive
Low energy
Gaining weight for no obvious reason
Losing muscle or definition
Having difficulty building muscle in spite of consistent workouts
Feeling mildly depressed
Enjoying life less
Not performing as well at work or in sports
Insulin resistance or diabetes
Belly fat
Depression
Sleep apnea

Benefits of Optimum Testosterone Levels

Studies show that optimum levels of testosterone can not only restore energy, drive and sexual health, but also extend life. In one study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, men with low testosterone levels were 88 percent more likely to die. In other studies, those with higher levels of the hormone were 60 percent less likely to get heart disease, and had better memory and overall mental function. Even sub-optimal testosterone levels that are still in the so-called “normal range” can be detrimental.

Benefits

The goal is to simply restore the body’s testosterone to a more youthful level. The benefits of testosterone replacement therapy can include:

Increased strength and energy
Improvement of well being and mood
Better concentration and cognitive function
Improvement in libido
Improvement in erectile dysfunction
Increased muscle mass
Preservation of bone mass
Decrease in cardiovascular risk

For females: Testosterone is also vitally important for females. There are several causes of low testosterone in women, often related to menopause & perimenopause. That said, women may also experience low testosterone secondary to estrogen dominance, childbirth, cancer treatment, adrenal fatigue, use of birth control pills, depression, endometriosis, and statin drugs. For females, testosterone replacement therapy has been shown to increase libido, emotional well-being, muscle mass, pain tolerance, and neurotransmitter production. Additionally, it aids in memory retention, keeps skin from sagging, reduces body fat, & maintains bone density.

For males: Traditionally, we understand testosterone as being responsible for the
development of male tissues. It plays a significant role in bone and muscle mass, body hair growth, and causes a deepened voice due to increased tension on the vocal cords. For men, testosterone can reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, cognitive dysfunction, sarcopenia, obesity, fatigue, depression, inflammation, cancer, diabetes, and sexual dysfunction.

Is Testosterone Replacement the Answer?

Why not regain that zest, drive, initiative and self-esteem that you had when you were younger? Not all types of testosterone are the same or created equal. For instance, testosterone cream will mostly convert to estrogen in men who are overweight or have insulin resistance or diabetes, which can reduce its effectiveness and actually make matters worse. You need to find a provider who understands this and will work with you to figure out which preparation and delivery system works best for you. If you are on testosterone and your estradiol level is above 25 ng/ml, you are not getting optimal benefits and may be doing harm. The high estrogen can elevate sugar levels, increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and heart attack, cause gynecomastia (man-boobs), weight gain, prostate problems and sleep apnea.
Benefits of Incorporating Growth Peptides in TRT
You can use Growth Hormone-Releasing Peptides like Peptide 2 and Peptide 6 to help improve your TRT program. Some of the benefits of using these GHRPs includes improved sex drive, enhanced sexual function, improved mood, and stimulated hair growth. Moreover, GHRPs help stimulate the growth hormones, which are essential for testosterone production. A study published in Clinics suggests that GHRP-2 helps elevate growth hormone levels. That means GHRPs may improve the effects of TRT. Your doctor can prescribe GHRPs, but it’s essential to discuss including GHRPs in your TRT plan first.
Benefits of Including Sermorelin in TRT
Your pituitary gland helps produce the substances that stimulate testosterone production. But sometimes you need help to encourage this hormone growth. That’s where Sermorelin comes in.
Sermorelin is a synthetic substance which naturally promotes hormone growth from your pituitary glands. Because it is a peptide substance that naturally promotes secretion and production of growth hormones, Sermorelin provides the main benefit of optimizing the body’s natural production of human growth hormone (HGH). When you receive the correct dosage based on your needs, Sermorelin may help improve the outcome of your testosterone replacement therapy. Some of Sermorelin’s benefits include improving muscle mass, enhancing libido and lowering the risk of heart disease–which are all factors linked to Low T. That’s why it’s often beneficial to include Sermorelin in your TRT program.
