Testosterone Replacement Therapy Q & A

Why is testosterone replacement therapy important for my health?

As the primary male sex hormone, testosterone does more than trigger changes during puberty. This hormone fills essential roles throughout your life, including:

  • Building muscle strength and mass
  • Strengthening bones
  • Producing sperm
  • Regulating your sex drive
  • Regulating your metabolism

Your body keeps blood levels of testosterone within a specific range. Health problems develop when its levels rise higher or drop lower than the normal range.

Why do men need testosterone replacement therapy?

Men need testosterone replacement therapy when they have low testosterone (low T). Low T may be caused by hypogonadism, a condition that occurs when your testicles don’t produce enough testosterone.

Numerous health conditions cause hypogonadism, including:

  • Mumps during adolescence or adulthood
  • Pituitary gland problems
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Testicular injuries
  • High blood levels of iron
  • Cancer treatments
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Inflammatory disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity

However, you can also have low T even if you’re in good health. Men’s testosterone levels naturally fall by up to 2% every year after age 30. Though this is a gradual change, the cumulative effect means that your testosterone can be down by 35% in your 60s.

What symptoms indicate I need testosterone replacement therapy?

As your testosterone levels drop, you experience one or more of the following:

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction (difficulty having or keeping an erection)
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory problems
  • Loss of muscle strength
  • Weight gain (especially belly fat)
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Depression

You can prevent or reverse low T symptoms with testosterone replacement therapy.

What should I expect during testosterone replacement therapy?

Before prescribing testosterone, your Uncharted Healthcare provider reviews your medical history, completes a thorough exam, and runs bloodwork to determine your hormone levels.

In addition to prescribing testosterone to increase your hormone levels and restore your health, they also identify and treat underlying conditions that may contribute to the problem.

As a concierge practice, Uncharted Healthcare offers an initial consultation for $300 and monthly services for a $149. 

Your monthly package covers your testosterone replacement medication (oral pills, patches, or creams), an evaluation to assess your symptoms, medication monitoring and refills. 

Call Uncharted Healthcare or request an appointment online today so they can help you feel like yourself again with testosterone replacement therapy.
