Testosterone-Replacement-Therapy-What-You-Need-to-Know.jpg

Women are not the only ones who deal with negative consequences and symptoms of getting older and imbalanced hormones. Men can deal with a lack of energy, less enjoyment in the bedroom, faster weight gain, loss of strength and muscle, and simply not being able to accomplish what they could just a few short years before from a decreased production of hormones.

Most of these ill-gotten symptoms are a result of the lessened production of testosterone that happens naturally through aging. This process is called andropause and it starts as early as age 30 for men. Around this age, testosterone production can begin to lessen by 2% each year.

Luckily, men suffering from andropause can benefit from testosterone replacement therapy that can either help replace or rebalance their testosterone levels. Here are some of the negative consequences of andropause and what you need to know about testosterone replacement therapy.

Negative Consequences of Andropause

There are multiple negative consequences of andropause and they can all lead to a decreased sense of self-esteem and enjoyment in life.

Decreased bone density: A decrease in testosterone as well as estrogen leads to a decrease in bone density. This bone-thinning can lead to serious conditions such as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis causes bones to become brittle which can lead to fractures. Serious fractures such as hip fractures can lead to a rapid decline in health and even death. Over a third of men who have Osteoporosis and experience a hip fracture, as a result, die within a year of that hip fracture.

Mood swings and depression: Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS) is a condition caused by decreased levels of testosterone. This can cause men to feel depressed, irritable, highly expressive, anxious, angry, frustrated, and defensive.

Decreased energy: Some of the mood swings and irritableness experienced by men suffering from andropause could be because of decreased energy. Decreased energy and increased fatigue can cause men to feel depression, night sweats, and insomnia, weight gain and heart disease.

Decreased libido and erectile dysfunction: An extreme decrease in an interest in sex and even erectile dysfunction can be a result of andropause. Suffering from these over an extended period of time can lead to a decrease in self-esteem and issues in personal relationships.

In addition to using testosterone replacement therapy to help with these negative consequences listed above, a change in diet, physical exercise and lifestyle can also aid in the relief of these symptoms.

How Testosterone Replacement Therapy Works

Testosterone Replacement Therapy- EzCareClinic Walk in doctor

There are a variety of ways in which men can take testosterone replacement therapy. Testosterone supplements can come in the form of a gel, tablet, mouth patch, injections, implants and more.

Here’s a more in-depth review of some of the ways in which testosterone can be delivered through the body:

Gel Delivery – Testosterone in the form of gel is a simple yet effective way to get this hormone in your body. You simply apply the gel to the upper and lower parts of your body and the gel releases the hormone in your body over the course of 24 hours. This method of delivery can be repeated for as long as you need it to. It usually takes about 4 months of continuous use before the gel is able to raise your testosterone levels to the amount needed to feel normal.

Mouth Patch – The mouth patch sticks to your gums and delivers a dose of testosterone through your mucous membranes in your mouth. This type of patch provides testosterone over the course of a 12-hour period after which, it will have to be replaced. This type of testosterone therapy takes about 12 weeks before testosterone levels are considered normal again. This type of therapy can also be repeated for as long as you need it.

Injections – With injections, your doctor will inject testosterone into your muscle tissues every 2-4 weeks. Through this type of transmission, testosterone is slowly released into your bloodstream and maintains a steady level of testosterone in your body until your next injection.

Implants – Implants, just like injections are used for slow and continuous releases of testosterone into the bloodstream. Unlike injections, implants are injected into the soft tissue every four to six months.

Transdermal Delivery – Transdermal delivery is a patch that you put on your skin; usually on your thigh or upper body. The patch is to be replaced daily. This type of transmission delivers testosterone over the course of 24 hours and patients can achieve a normal level of testosterone in as little as 27 days.

As you can see there are multiple reasons why you should consider testosterone replacement therapy if you are suffering from low testosterone levels. In addition to feeling vibrant once again, there are also multitudes of ways in which you can take testosterone making therapy a discreet and painless solution.

Conditions and Symptoms Affecting Men’s Health

Men’s health can be impacted by several conditions and symptoms including: 

  • Andropause 
  • Mood Swings and Depression 
  • Decreased Bone Density 
  • Chronic Fatigue 
  • Erectile Dysfunction 

Andropause 

Andropause is a condition that causes men to experience a reduction in testosterone levels. Men’s testosterone levels begin to drop an average of two percent every year after the age of 30. Common symptoms of andropause include mood swings, decreased bone density, reduced muscle mass, chronic fatigue, lowered libido, and erectile dysfunction. 

Mood Swings and Depression 

Mood swings and depression can have a negative impact on men’s health and are often associated with hormone imbalance. Mood swings are closely linked to depression and can cause extreme reactions to various situations. Mood swings can range from anger, impatience, and anxiousness to defensiveness, abuse, and threatening acts of violence. Depression is usually the cause of mood swings and affects thousands of men worldwide. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately three million men in the United States suffer from depression every year (cdc.org, 2015). 

Decreased Bone Density 

Men make up approximately 18 percent of people who suffer from decreased bone density (Osteoporosis). One of the most common reasons for osteoporosis in men is declining testosterone and estrogen. Osteoporosis causes bones to become thin and brittle, which causes them to fracture and break easily. At EZCare Clinic, we can help men develop a health plan that includes calcium and vitamin D supplements combined with a consistent exercise program.  

Chronic Fatigue 

Chronic fatigue is a common symptom that affects men’s health during declining testosterone levels. When men experience these symptoms over an extended period, they may become depressed, have mood swings, experience insomnia, and gain weight. Chronic fatigue can also contribute to increasing frustration, impatience, and anger. Our doctors can assist you with a customized diet plan and exercise routine that is focused on men’s health. Call our San Francisco office to schedule an appointment for a consultation and begin your testosterone treatment plan today. 

Erectile Dysfunction 

Lower testosterone levels may also cause erectile dysfunction in men. Erectile dysfunction is caused by the reduction of blood flow to the penis and the supporting muscles. Diet, exercise, smoking, and drinking alcohol are also major contributors to a reduction of blood flow in the body. Fortunately, Testosterone Replacement Therapy and a prescription for Viagra from EZCare Medical Clinic may help to improve erectile dysfunction. Treatment programs may also include access to counselors, dietitians, and exercise therapists.
