Testosterone is the most important male sex hormone produced in the testicles and is essential for normal sexual development and function. Its level increases exponentially in childhood, hits a peak during adolescence, and starts to decline every year with aging.
If you experience low libido, fatigue, reduced sexual performance, and lack of energy, your testosterone level is to be blamed. At this stage, men’s health experts at NIVA Men’s Health recommend testosterone replacement therapy.
Testosterone replacement therapy resolves symptoms of low T. Let us talk about the positive and negative outcomes of testosterone replacement therapy when you have low T and where you can go for outstanding men’s healthcare.
Treat Erectile Dysfunction
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can effectively reduce the incidence and severity of erectile dysfunction or impotence contributed by a low level of testosterone therapy. TRT can noticeably improve erectile dysfunction, particularly in hypogonadal men with mild ED and unresponsive to drugs like phosphodiesterase inhibitors.
It is important to notice that taking testosterone replacement therapy cannot provide relief from ED if low T or hypogonadism is not a cause of it.
Testosterone replacement therapy can do wonders in your sex life when suffering from low T. TRT can improve the ability to maintain an erection and perform satisfactory sexual intercourse.
TRT increases red blood cells count by increasing their production and eventually increasing metabolism provided that new and increased RBCs supply the body with oxygen and help break down fats and carbs into energy.
Increased Lean Muscle Mass and Reduced Weight
Increased fat mass and decreased lean muscle mass is the common side effect of low T, which can be treated with TRT as it builds your muscles and increases their tissue mass while decreasing the body fat. The research found that TRT can reduce body fat by 8%, particularly stubborn belly fat, and thus lower obesity risks.
Improved Mental Health
You can improve your stamina, mood, focus, concentration, memory, mental acuity, and cognitive function by bringing your testosterone hormone back to the normal level with the help of TRT. It can also eliminate other signs of low T, such as irritability, depression, and lack of interest.
Testosterone replacement therapy also comes with the following risks, which is why you should take a cautious approach to it.
- Cause acne or other skin conditions
- Stimulate benign prostate hyperplasia
- Can worse sleep apnea
- Can limit sperm production
- Can shrink testicles
- Can increase the risk of clot formation by stimulating too much RBC production
- Cause enlarged breasts
The research found that people who undergo testosterone replacement have a higher risk for heart disease. You can talk to your men’s health professional to determine whether TRT is the right choice for you.
