Testosterone Replacement therapy

There are a several symptoms associated with low testosterone levels. Such symptoms vary greatly from mild inconveniences like oily skin, to severe disabilities like impotence. Hypogonadism symptoms are often related and can be largely categorized.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Mood & Irritable Male Syndrome

Gradual decline in testosterone levels (andropause) is believed to contribute to the rising rate of depression in older men. Irritable male syndrome (IMS) is a condition often characterized by its associated biochemical changes, hormonal fluctuations, stress, and loss of male identity. Irritable Male Syndrome includes increased frequency of anxiety, depression, anger, confusion, diminished relationship and sexual life, and a less satisfying overall quality of life.

General Health

Low serum testosterone has been correlated with a variety of overall health, or quality of life diminishing symptoms such as decreased or reduced: cognitive functions like concentration and focus, memory and recall (brain fog); sexual performance; insulin resistance; muscle mass; sleep quality; bone density; stamina; bodily hair; etc.

Sexual Dysfunction

There is a direct correlation between declining testosterone levels and reduced sexual function, i.e., diminished: libido; impotence; inability to sustain erection; low semen volume; etc.

Physical Appearance

Two of the primary measures/symptoms physicians use to aid in their physical diagnosis of low testosterone are the recent significant decrease in muscle mass and inversely increased body fat. Physical health measures include body fat percentage, body mass index (BMI), waist-to-height ratio (WHtR), the basal metabolic rate (BMR), surface area, Willoughby athlete weight calculation, etc.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

TRT

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a regimen of physician prescribed testosterones used to treat hypogonadic (low testosterone) symptoms. Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone (androgen), which is also naturally produced in smaller amounts within the female body. Largely produced by and regulated through a joint effort of the glands and organs which make up the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA), testosterone is the hormone responsible for the normal growth and development of male sex organs, and plays an integral role in: libido; mood; energy level; bone density; cognitive functions like memory and concentration; and secondary sex characteristics such as voice change, bodily hair growth, muscle mass, and fat distribution.

Testosterone Cypionate

Testosterone preparations are shot directly into the muscle, and then absorbed into the bloodstream via the capillaries. This is an extremely popular preparation due to its highly accurate dosing, varying time release qualities, and insignificant hepatotoxicity levels. Will improve mood, memory, energy, libido and erectile function; increase muscle mass, strength and bone density; and reduces subcutaneous, visceral and adipose fat.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)

HCG administration acts as supplemental gonadotropin, replacing absent LH activity. HCG stimulates the Leydig cells to synthesize intratesticular testosterone, this testosterone is essential for spermatogenesis occurring in the Sertoli cells. To achieve this effect 500 IUs of HCG were administered twice per week during testosterone therapy

Anastrozole

Anastrozole inhibits aromatase, the enzyme that catalyzes the final step in estrogen production. Anastrozole is an oral, competitive, non-steroidal inhibitor of aromatase and is less likely to exhibit agonist or antagonist steroidal properties.

B12 Vitamin Injection

Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for blood, cell and nerve health.
