Is Treating Low T Safe and Effective?

Low T treatment, or hormone replacement therapy, is used to help treat men with abnormally low levels of testosterone. Low T can adversely affect normal body functions, which can lead to decreased muscle mass and lower sex drive.

What are the benefits of Low T treatment?

For men with Low T, hormone replacement therapy can help improve their overall health and wellness. Here are some of the benefits of Low T treatments:

  • Heart
    Testosterone helps red blood cell production through bone marrow. Treating Low T as you age may help decrease your risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Muscles
    Low T treatment can decrease body fat and increase muscle size and strength.
  • Bones
    Bone density decreases with age and testosterone levels drop. Low T treatment can increase spinal and hipbone density and reduce the risk of weak bones and osteoporosis.
  • Brain
    Research shows that men with higher levels of testosterone have a reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, increased spatial memory and faster processing speed.
  • Libido
    Low T therapy can restore sexual desire and increase your ability to maintain an erection.

What are the potential risks of Low T treatment?

As with any type of medical procedure or treatment, there are associated risks. However, for men with Low Testosterone levels, the benefits of hormone replacement therapy usually outweigh the potential risks. If you have testosterone replacement therapy, you will need frequent blood tests to check your testosterone levels and to check for any side effects. Your doctor can help you determine if Low T treatment is safe for you. Immediate side effects from Low T treatments may include:

  • Acne or oily skin
  • Mild fluid retention in the breasts or ankles
  • Weakened urine stream
  • Decreased urination frequency
  • Worsening of sleep apnea
  • Decreased testicular size
  • Mood swings
  • Changes in cholesterol levels
  • Increased red blood cell count
  • Increased risk of blood clots
  • Decreased sperm count
