Low testosterone levels can significantly negatively affect a man’s physical and mental health. Fatigue, decreased muscle mass and strength, and depression are just a few of the symptoms of low testosterone. Unfortunately, many men over 45 experience a natural decline in testosterone production, leading to these issues. However, low testosterone can lead to long-term physical and mental health problems that can dramatically impact an individual’s quality of life and ability to function daily.
Testosterone is a crucial hormone that plays a vital role in developing masculine traits in men. It is mainly produced in the testicles and is responsible for numerous functions, including muscle mass, body and facial hair growth, bone density, red blood cell production, sperm production, and sex drive. As men age, their testosterone production slows, leading to symptoms that may indicate low T or low testosterone.
Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment option to restore balance to shifting hormone levels. Low testosterone impacts many men, and it may cause frustrating changes, such as:
Testosterone replacement therapy may help reduce or better manage these experiences. Two standard methods of administering TRT are testosterone injections and testosterone pellets.
Our testosterone replacement therapy treatments in Florida involve a combined usage of topical testosterone pellets and IM injections.
Bio-identical hormone pellets are naturally derived concentrated hormones in a compressed form, which are biologically identical to an individual’s naturally occurring hormones. These have been successfully used since the 1930s and provide a longer-acting alternative to other hormone combinations such as tablets, patches, creams, or injections.
IM injections, or intramuscular injections, are administered on the side of the body in the pelvic area. They are administered deeply into the muscles. This promotes quicker and better absorption of testosterone as the hormone goes directly into your bloodstream. While you may experience some discomfort at the injection site, you should be able to return to your normal daily activities after the testosterone injection.
Results achieved with testosterone replacement therapy will vary for each person, and it is essential to have realistic goals and expectations. It may take some time to enjoy the best results of hormone therapy as your body absorbs and responds to the hormones. Consistent and regular treatment is necessary for the best results.
Results can vary depending on individual factors, but many patients report experiencing improvements in energy, mood, and overall well-being within a few weeks of starting TRT. Significant changes in body composition and muscle mass may take longer, typically several months.
The frequency of TRT treatments can vary based on individual needs. Our medical team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include regular injections, patches, or other administration methods.
We will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and current medications to ensure compatibility with TRT. You must inform us of all medications you are taking before starting treatment.
