Risks of Low Testosterone Treatment

Are the Risks of Using Low Testosterone Treatment High or Low?

When you decided to do some online research on the benefits versus the risks of low testosterone treatment, did you have any idea of the enormous amount of information that you would find there? Sorting through all of it would be an impossible task, so you probably did what most adults do and narrowed your focus to information that appeared to come from the most credible sources, such as that published online by medical researchers and licensed medical doctors. But even by refining your search, you probably still came away with the impression that there appears to be some disagreement within the medical community regarding the use of this form of treatment.

Yet there seems to be very little disagreement about the positive results that testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) produces. Apparently, some medical professionals believe that it is currently being prescribed somewhat indiscriminately and this is one point in the ongoing debate about weighing the risks of low testosterone treatment against its benefits. But this point of view suggests that the use of medically prescribed TRT programs has become a trend, and it is usually coupled with the argument that too many men are primarily interested in using Low T therapy to reverse the aging process and rev up their sex life.

So what if they are? The symptoms of testosterone deficiency typically make a man feel prematurely old and all washed up in the sexual performance department. In addition to that, numerous studies performed by prestigious medical organizations, schools and research facilities have shown that having Low T levels produces a variety of negative health consequences. Responsibly prescribed TRT has been used by thousands and thousands of adult men over the past six decades, and the statistical date has consistently indicated that their treatment has been very low risk. Any side effects that have been reported have typically been categorized as minor and reversible by lowering their treatment dosage or discontinuing their treatment program. And any fears about the adverse effects of using TRT for an extended period of time have proven to be unfounded.

How to Weigh the Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

How to Weigh the Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

How can you know if your Low T treatment is being responsibly prescribed for you? You will know because doctors who legitimately treat patients for a clinically verified male hormone deficiency always follow the recommended medical protocols. Among the things that they do for the patients they are treating, after having properly diagnosed each of them by performing the required blood testing and reviewing their symptoms, is to evaluate their potential risks of low testosterone treatment. They do this through the performance of a medical exam, along with a thorough review of each patient’s medical to ensure that there are no pre-existing medical conditions that would make TRT inadvisable for them to use.

The goal of all legitimately prescribed Low T therapy programs is restore a patient’s male hormone supply to its optimal levels for maintaining and extending health and vitality. In reaching their program’s goal, the patient’s symptoms are dramatically reduced or even completely eliminated and are replaced with the following benefits:

  • A resurgence of energy and increased stamina
  • A dramatic restoration of sexual libido
  • Visible improvements to muscle mass and tone
  • The loss of excessive body fat
  • An improved sense of emotional wellbeing
  • Sharper cognitive function
  • The prevention of bone density losses
  • A reduced risk for developing certain degenerative diseases

In comparing the low risks of low testosterone treatment that is correctly prescribed and used with the important benefits it provides to patients, it is difficult to understand the resistance that some doctors continue to exhibit about this treatment. While it is true that some adults obtain and use bio-identical treatments illegally, it is illogical to associate the dangers of illicitly using a powerful pharmaceutical substance like testosterone with those adults who are using TRT appropriately and under competent medical supervision. 

Are All of Your Treatment Options for Low T Equally Effective?

Were you surprised during your research to find out that in addition to the testosterone gels you’ve seen advertised there are a variety of forms of TRT that today’s patents are using? All of them have been federally approved for doctor prescribed use by patients, but does that mean that they are all equally effective in increasing Low T levels? If you have performed further research, you may have come away from it with some questions about that.

As you might already know, the original form of treatment and the one that has been in continual medical use since it first became available is injectable testosterone. Long before the gels, patches, implanted pellets and other newer forms existed, men were using one of several forms of injectable testosterone (either cypionate, enanthate or propionate) to effectively increase their male hormone levels. They still are today. In addition to having proven to minimize the risks of low testosterone treatment, the use of doctor prescribed injections has repeatedly been shown to deliver the desired results to patients.

The newer forms are at a disadvantage in terms of their record of results because some of them have only been in use for a few years. However, in the time that they have been studied – and clinical studies on TRT are ongoing – the results produced by the topically applied and implanted forms have fallen short of clinical expectations. So injections remain the most widely prescribed form of Low T therapy based on their record of performance. Most patients find the learning curve for preparing and self-administering their injections to be an easy one to manage, and they would prefer to use a treatment that only requires a few injections a month compared to the daily applications needed for the topical forms.

The form of treatment you use is an important decision and it is one that you will want to discuss with your TRT doctor. Using treatment for correcting your testosterone deficiency is a long-term commitment to your health and wellbeing, so you will want to make sure that you get the most from your treatment. You will also want be certain that you are comfortable and secure in your decision, which means having all of your questions about the benefits and risks of low testosterone treatment satisfactorily answered. That will probably require more than online research; for many adults, it will require speaking to legitimate and fully licensed TRT medical provider. So what is the best way for you to make that happen?
