Benefits of Testosterone Therapy
Testosterone therapy can significantly improve the lives of men with low testosterone levels. Testosterone (T) is a hormone that is made in the testicles of men and the adrenal glands and ovaries of women.
It is essential for the development of masculine characteristics and male growth. Women produce significantly smaller amounts of testosterone than men.
A boy’s testosterone levels increase by up to 30 times during his teenage years, staying that way until early adulthood. Testosterone levels start to drop at a rate of about 1% per year after 30.
Testosterone helps to build and maintain muscle mass and density. It is responsible for the deeper voice of men, and it powers the sex drive. Testosterone is also responsible for facial and pubic hair in men. It helps to regulate mood, as well as thinking ability and verbal memory.
Reasons to consider testosterone therapy
Men with low testosterone levels typically do not need testosterone therapy. Doctors typically recommend the treatment for patients after blood tests show they have abnormally low T levels, and the symptoms they are experiencing confirm it. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) does not provide significant benefits to men with normal T levels.
Some of the benefits of restoring a patient’s testosterone levels with TRT include:
1. Healthier blood and heart
Testosterone replacement helps with the production of red blood cells in bone marrow, making it easier for the heart to do its job and get oxygen and nutrients to organs and muscles in the body that need them.
Testosterone therapy also helps to protect against cardiovascular issues. Studies have linked low testosterone to various cardiovascular issues like heart disease. Research also shows TRT can help to widen healthy arteries, reducing the risk of suffering a heart attack.
2. Increased muscle mass and lowered fat
Testosterone helps to build muscle mass and burn off fat. Men with low testosterone often report increased muscle mass after starting testosterone replacement therapy, especially if they exercise or lift weights regularly.
3. Stronger bones
Testosterone is closely linked to bone mineral density in men. Bone density in men typically decreases as their testosterone levels drop, and vice versa. Strong bones support muscle and organs, so improved bone density often leads to improved athletic performance.
4. Improved brain function
Testosterone levels are linked to spatial abilities, mathematical reasoning, and verbal memory in men. Men with higher testosterone levels are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Some studies also indicate higher testosterone levels lead to faster brain processing speeds and verbal treatment. Men from ages 34 to 70 can improve their spatial memory with testosterone therapy.
5. Improved sex drive
Increased testosterone levels increase sex drive and improve the quality of a man’s sex drive. The older a man is, the more likely he needs testosterone therapy to boost his sex drive.
