What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone deficiency, also known as hypogonadism, describes the reduction or absence of the testosterone hormone in the body. Testosterone deficiency can be caused by several factors, like obesity, normal aging, medications, cancer history, and more. It is estimated to affect 4 – 5 million men in the United States alone. Hypogonadism can be diagnosed through a series of blood tests. At Tru Male Medical, we want to help our patients regulate their hormones so they can get back to feeling like themselves. If you think you may be dealing with the effects of testosterone deficiency, contact our Oak Brook, IL practice today to be evaluated.
What to Expect From Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is a necessary hormone that can affect a patient's libido, energy, sleep, and overall general health. During your consultation, hormone specialist Dr. Robert Marshall and his team will discuss the available testosterone treatment options with you so they can select the best option for you and your lifestyle. Testosterone replacement therapy is a highly effective procedure, designed to supplement what the body is not producing in sufficient quantities. Treatment options can include topical creams and gels (applied daily), intramuscular injection to the hip, thigh, or deltoid every 7 – 10 days, or subcutaneous injections every 2 – 3 days to the thigh, waist, or arm. Men often report that they notice a difference in the way they feel within the first week of therapy.
Testosterone replacement is safe and effective and will be administered by our attentive staff. If you have any questions or concerns about testosterone replacement, please do not hesitate to ask our team. We are happy to discuss the natural results and possible effects with our patients because we are committed to their well-being.
