Could You Benefit From TRT? (Testosterone Replacement Therapy)

Testosterone is a sex hormone that plays many roles in your body, which include regulating your sex drive, producing red blood cells and sperm, supporting healthy bone mass, supporting fat distribution, and helping promote lean muscle mass and strength.

The problem is that testosterone naturally declines in men around age 30 and drops another 1-2% each year when you hit your forties. Although it’s natural and to be expected, this decline in testosterone levels can lead to a range of less-than-pleasant symptoms that impact your energy, mood, and even your overall health. 

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can help restore your hormone levels and combat the pesky symptoms of low testosterone 一 TRT is available here at Performance Rejuvenation Center.

Read on to learn if you might benefit from TRT.

You have symptoms of low testosterone

Low testosterone can affect your body, mind, and emotional state. Here are a few signs you’re dealing with low testosterone. 

You are always tired

It’s one thing to feel tired after a late night, but it’s another issue if you’re always tired. If you find yourself battling persistent fatigue — one of the most widespread signs of low testosterone — and a noticeable decline in energy levels, it could be a sign of low testosterone. 

TRT therapy can help boost your energy levels. You may notice increased energy as TRT works to restore your hormonal balance.

Remember that fatigue can be related to other conditions, such as depression or thyroid issues, so proper blood work is vital before starting TRT.

You have mood swings

Low testosterone levels can cause irritability, mood swings, and even symptoms of depression. TRT can help since it stabilizes your hormone levels and potentially contributes to a more stable and positive emotional state.

You have seen a decrease in lean muscle mass

It’s no secret that testosterone plays a role in maintaining lean muscle mass and strength. If you've observed a decline in your physical prowess 一 despite hitting the gym 一 TRT may help enhance muscle development.

You have lost your libido

Low testosterone can zap your libido and contribute to erectile dysfunction, wreaking havoc on your sex life. 

You have brain fog

Your cognitive functions can be affected by low testosterone levels, which means you may notice brain fog, have trouble concentrating, or struggle with memory. 

TRT may contribute to improved cognitive function and memory. Researchers found that even just six weeks of TRT created an improvement in both spatial and verbal memory.

Your blood shows that you have low testosterone levels

If you think TRT might benefit you, the first step is to schedule your consultation. The Performance Rejuvenation Center team can diagnose low testosterone with a quick blood test. Once your blood work is complete, your provider analyzes the results and creates your TRT based on your levels.

We make the process easy for all patients wherever you live. Telehealth patients can receive blood work in a lab located nearby.
