Testosterone therapy

What is testosterone therapy?

Testosterone therapy, also known as TRT or testosterone replacement therapy, is a treatment that helps raise low testosterone levels in men back to normal. Testosterone is the main sex hormone in men and plays key roles like building muscle mass, bone density, red blood cell production, and sex drive.

As men age, their testosterone production naturally declines about 1% per year after age 30. If levels get too low, men may experience unpleasant low T symptoms like fatigue, erectile dysfunction, depressed mood, and loss of muscle. This makes it harder to get through the day. Testosterone therapy can help bring their vitality back.

Who is a good candidate for testosterone therapy?
