Low Testosterone

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.

 

Treatment Options

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.

Going to consult Dr Jess has gotta be one of the best decisions I've made in 2018. I'm always a little nervous when I visit a doctor or dentist but she puts me completely at ease. Like another reviewer put it, she truly engages with you and never makes you feel like your question is stupid (you know that feeling). I especially like how she's very upfront with the costs before prescribing or proceeding with anything. I've recommended her to my family and all my friends! Edit: Just wanted to add a shoutout to Dr Jess's team. Each of the ladies I've met in the last couple of years have been so welcoming and warm which calms my nerves while waiting to see Dr Jess or waiting for medication to be dispensed. I don't know why but appointment making can be quite an intimidating process for me but they've always been so kind and are always responsive.

Dr Jess is an amazing doctor with a beautiful heart. What I really love about her is that is super realistic. She does not promise rapid/fake results. She is very humble and I really like it that spent her time to talk and explain to me about my condition in detail. I have been to so many other doctors for the same. They will just talk briefly and try to push me to start the treament on the spot / nurses will start discussing on pricing.Wasted my time and money in the wrong clinic before. However, Dr Jess is just different.She is not greedy. Very helpful and high level of professionlism and empathy.And her staff Hani is super sweet too. Customer service top notch. Sometime I send message so late when i need something urgently. Hani will still reply to me patiently. I am so lucky I finally found the best doctor and her assitant for my lady needs 🙂 . I only have one regret-I didnt find them earlier.

I am soooooo glad I went here to have my concernssorted. I have no words how comfortable I am after she had me checked up. Her hands are very light aswell. It's like having a class about our body parts. She explained my result that I had back in Bangkok than the doctor I had there. How I wish there is someone like her that will make sure all our questions and concerns are answered. She's the best of best. Highly recommend her. Price is reasonable too. Just thank you Dr.Jess and her assistant Aisyah. Have a wonderful day always.
