Testosterone Replacement Therapy


Are you feeling less energetic? Is it harder for you to recover from your active lifestyle? Has your sex drive decreased? Feeling depressed or moody? Not able to build muscle and gaining fat? If so you may be experiencing signs of Low T. What is low T? Low testosterone levels is something that every male will experience in his lifetime. Some earlier than others.” Recent research suggests that testosterone levels may decrease as rapidly as 2% annually after the age of 30. Thankfully for men this has led to the development of testosterone replacement therapy which can stop all the negative symptoms of Low T. Trained men’s health physicians are now able to prescribe TRT in a safe and effective manner.

What is TRT?

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a unique type of hormone replacement therapy designed to restore healthy testosterone levels in patients who suffers from low T. We here at The Plunge prescribe bioidentical testosterone in an injectable form to restore your testosterone levels to a healthy range that will have you feeling great and energetic. Other forms of testosterone prescriptions exist as well, such as testosterone patches and testosterone creams (both of which are absorbed through the skin instead of being injected). However those methods of delivery can sometimes deliver inconsistent results. Therefore the injectable form remains the gold standard of delivery. While the majority of males on TRT are over the age of 40, younger men are taking action into their own hands and having their testosterone levels checked these days. We strongly encourage this if you are experiencing symptoms of low T, which we will cover later in this article.

Low T (Testosterone) Symptoms

If you’re experiencing any (or all) of these symptoms, you may be a candidate for TRT. However, it’s necessary to confirm your testosterone levels through blood work before you make any decisions. The trained physicians at The Plunge will help guide you through the process of checking your testosterone levels and determining if you should consider TRT.

How Does TRT Work?

Once it has been determined by your physician that you are suffering from low testosterone you will be prescribed an appropriate dose to negate those symptoms. Your doctor will monitor your progress thru your overall feeling of health and well-being. Repeat bloodwork at an appropriate interval will also help guide your treatment as well as monitor for any potential complications.

What Are The Benefits of TRT?

While everyone is different in there response to TRT in general most people should expect to have these benefits:

What Are The Risks of TRT?

Much like any prescription medication, testosterone can bring about some side effects after continuous use. Thankfully, the side effects of TRT are relatively benign since the goal is to keep testosterone levels in a healthy range. If your testosterone levels get too high on TRT, your doctor should adjust the dose of testosterone accordingly. Testosterone seems to have a poor reputation in modern society, as many people assume it produces serious side effects and “roid rage,” which is simply not the case when small doses are used (as is the case on TRT). Intuitively, if you take large amounts of testosterone (e.g., for physical performance enhancement), there is definitely a greater risk of harmful side effects, such as gynecomastia, infertility, and high blood pressure. On the contrary, the risks of TRT are fairly limited. Some men may notice they have oily skin, body hair growth (back and chest), and testicular shrinkage after being on TRT for a period of time. These side effects are manageable in the majority of cases and may even fade as the body adjusts to TRT. Once someone is on TRT for awhile the natural production of testosterone in your body slows down greatly therefore if someone was to stop taking TRT they would experience a rather sharp drop in testosterone levels. So if someone on TRT either needs to stop taking or wants to stop taking TRT then there physician can help them thru that process. Doctors can prescribe a hormone called HCG to restart the patients normal testosterone production.

TRT Key Takeaways

TRT is a safe and effective form of hormone replacement therapy commonly used to treat males with low T. If the body isn’t producing sufficient testosterone, TRT can help restore testosterone levels to a healthy range. If you suspect you have low T based on the symptoms described in this article, you should take the necessary steps to have your testosterone levels checked through a blood test. Remember, testosterone is the primary “male” hormone. TRT is often a life-changing protocol with definitive benefits in men with low T.
