How it Works:
Testosterone (T) is a type of steroid hormone, secreted naturally by the adrenal glands and sex organs of the body, i.e., testes in men and ovaries in women. The main function of testosterone in men is to regulate the development of reproductive organs and secondary sex characteristics, while in women, it controls bone mass and enhances sex drive. Other than these functions, testosterone is responsible for maintaining healthy mood, energy level, and fertility. The causes of low testosterone can be genetic or related to diet, medication, obesity, underlying health conditions, advancing age, and lifestyle habits.
Whatever is the reason behind lack of testosterone, it negatively affects the health in many ways. Symptoms of this hormonal deficiency include mood disorder, irritation, cognitive decline, and behavioral changes.
The amount of testosterone secretion in men differs with age. High production of this steroid hormone is observed during puberty, while the level decreases considerably after the age threshold of 50. For treatment of testosterone deficiency in men, testosterone injections are delivered at a specific dosage (200 - 300 mg in 2 to 3 weeks) for a particular period.
Symptoms of Low T:
Low T is a medical condition that affects men over the age of 40 when their hormone levels naturally decline. Low T significantly diminishes a man’s quality of life, affecting his relationships and self esteem. Symptoms vary, but include fatigue, difficulty sleeping, low sex drive, and erectile dysfunction among others. The symptoms associated with andropause are very similar to the symptoms of Low T. Here are some of the most common symptoms of low testosterone.
Take any kind of hormonal therapy and it is always associated with certain adverse effects. The same is applicable to delivering testosterone shots. Hence, a preliminary testosterone test is performed to check the level of this steroid hormone in the body. Based on the diagnostic result, testosterone therapy, either in the form of injections or gels, is prescribed to combat the discomfort symptoms.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is an effective treatment to alleviate the symptoms of Low T. Simple blood tests are used to measure a patient’s testosterone levels. Once diagnosed, a patient is offered a variety of treatment options. Testosterone gels, which can be applied to the skin, are an easy way to treat the condition. Another popular option is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) which is administered in injectable form. These injections are typically administered once a week, using the injectable form of the male hormone Cypionate. Testosterone injections guarantee constant absorption and are the preferred method of male hormone supplementation. HRT is prescribed by a physician and the treatment plan is always physician monitored to ensure safe, successful results. Studies have shown that the replacement of this vital male hormone through injection can heighten the sex drive, increase bone density, stop the decline in muscle mass, and improve moods.
