There’s no reason to accept low testosterone as part of ageing.
In sexually active years, most men are concerned about their testosterone levels. Besides impacting sexual function, testosterone is closely linked to muscle strength, cholesterol and glucose control as well as heart health.
As men approach andropause, testosterone levels are gradually reduced by around 1% every year. This may also increase the risk of osteoporosis, in addition to the other long-term effects highlighted above.
The good news: There are several testosterone replacement therapy options that have been shown to increase energy levels, muscle mass, bone density, and sex drive, as well as to reduce other symptoms in men who suffer from low testosterone for other reasons.
How fast do Testosterone Replacement
Injections Start Working?
Did you know?
Testosterone is useless to you when it is attached to proteins in your body. Testosterone that is free floating and unattached to proteins is what is useful to you. Ask for a properly calculated free testosterone level at your next blood test.
Testosterone supplements come in a variety of forms, including gels and injections.
Gels are popular but can be messy and restrictive. The gel is applied once daily to clean, dry and unbroken skin on the shoulders, upper arm, or abdomen, and users must wait several minutes for the gel to dry before dressing and a further 5 to 6 hours before showering, bathing, or swimming. Because the testosterone in the gel is so easily absorbed, men using this form need to take caution not to let anyone else come into direct contact with the medicated skin.
There are currently 2 available forms of injections.
Some injections like Depo-Testosterone can be self administered at home on a weekly basis.
Others are given deep into the muscle in a doctor’s clinic once every 3 months.
Direct testosterone replacement can stop your body’s local production of testosterone. Your testis require locally produced testosterone to manufacture sperms.
If you desire to conceive while on testosterone replacement, it is important to receive HCG injections to directly stimulate your testes to make local testosterone hence maintaining sperm count.
Aesthetically, HCG injections are also used to maintain testicular size and to prevent testicular shrinkage over time while on testosterone replacement.
