Effects of Testosterone Therapy

How Familiar with the Effects of Testosterone Therapy Are You?

What is your personal position on the effects of testosterone therapy based on? Is the information that you have managed to gather on today’s treatments for adults with Low T symptoms factual, current and relevant? If you happen to be among those symptomatic adults who are living all across the US, then you owe it to yourself to find out what the latest medical opinions are from doctors who prescribe testosterone replacement therapy programs for qualified US adult patients.

Testosterone deficiency has been on the rise among the adult population in recent years and many medical researchers believe that this increase could very possibly correspond to the fact that adults now have more stressful lifestyles; they are being exposed to more environmental toxins; and they have a higher prevalence of obesity. But whatever the contributing factors are, the statistical evidence shows that more adults than ever before are suffering from the unhealthy effects of male hormone deficiency – and as a consequence of that, more of them are seeking medical treatment for this disorder.

So not surprisingly, there has also been an increase in the amount of information being published, posted and broadcast across all media regarding the effects of testosterone therapy, both pro and con. But while anyone could conceivably access this information through one communication channel or another, how much value does all of it really have? How can a person discern between legitimate professional information that is backed by scientifically proven facts and information that is unproven, subjective, or even intentionally deceptive and misleading?

Given that receiving treatment for Low T is a medical matter, it makes sense that the most reliable and up-to-date information on its positive and potentially negative effects comes from the hormone replacement therapy doctors who have specific expertise in prescribing this treatment for their patients.

What Are Your Questions About Testosterone Therapy’s Effects?

Scanning the Internet for hours on end is a very non-productive way to get specific questions answered compared to making a phone call and getting those questions quickly and accurately answered.

If you prefer, you can even use the contact form on our website to submit your queries to us.

Whatever it is that you need to know about using Low T therapy, whether it’s about the long-term effectiveness of this treatment … about how you can qualify for treatment … about how you can receive it … about what form of treatment you should use … or about anything at all, wouldn’t it be extremely helpful to talk to an experienced professional about it? Testosterone replacement therapy, like all forms of hormone replacement therapy, is an individualized form of remedial treatment that is focused on meeting each patient’s personal therapeutic requirements and goals. Because of this, the only way to accurately respond to any person’s questions about Low T therapy is on an individual basis.

There are certainly points of information that can be universally and appropriately shared, such as the instructional videos on how to prepare and self-administer testosterone injections at home (the Nexel Medical doctors have made their own versions of these videos available to our patients). It can also be helpful for people to go online to some of the major and highly respected medical websites to review their information on the effects of testosterone therapy. However, most adults have a personal perspective in regard to their questions about getting relief from their Low T symptoms and our doctors and clinical advisors believe that one of the best and most expeditious ways to receive personalized answers is to contact Nexel Medical directly.  

Can Testosterone Therapy Have an Effect on Heart Health?

This is a question that is still being studied by medical researchers and will probably continue to be studied in the years ahead. But some fairly recent studies have been published that either explore the effects of testosterone therapy on heart health or explore the effects of low androgen levels on heart health. So once again, there are two sides of testosterone research for doctors to examine and consider when answering questions about its relationship to cardiovascular health.

Let’s tackle the research on Low T levels and cardiovascular health first. Doctors have long known that low testosterone levels can directly lead to decreases in male fertility, in muscle mass, and in bone density. They also know that it has been associated with what is called metabolic syndrome, which consists of elevated blood sugars and blood pressure, weight gain, and abnormal cholesterol levels – and it is these levels that can increase an adult’s risk for developing coronary artery disease. Recent studies have further indicated that Low T can also increase an adult’s risk for atrial fibrillation, which refers to the development of abnormal heart rhythms from the heart’s upper chambers.

As far as the research on the effects of testosterone therapy in regard to increased heart disease risks, some of the latest studies have shown a correlation, but only among men who were already predisposed to cardiovascular disease when they started using Low T replacement therapy. Among its other implications, this research reinforces the importance of carefully reviewing each patient’s health history to ascertain the advisability of using a TRT program. There are certain pre-existing conditions and previous health issues that would make the use of supplemental testosterone inadvisable, such as prostate cancer, for example; and now some studies are suggesting that adults with a history of cardiovascular disease, or who are at a high risk for developing it, should not be considered to be good candidates for Low T therapy. It must be noted that theses studies have not arrived at the same conclusion in regard to men without a history of heart disease using this form of medical treatment.

New information and data on TRT is continually being developed and released, along with ongoing studies on the health hazards that testosterone deficiency can contribute to. The most effective hormone therapy doctors are those who stay on top of the latest information so that they can provide both the most effective and safest form of corrective treatment to their hormone deficiency patients.

What Effects Will Using Low T Therapy Have on Your Budget?

Answering this question is probably going to involve contacting your health care insurance provider, because they may or may not provider coverage for the treatment of adult-onset testosterone deficiency. TRT doctors have observed that many medical insurers in the US have limitations and exclusions in place in regard to the treatment of Low T.

However, the effects of testosterone therapy on any adult’s budget can be minimal, even if they discover that they are going to be required to pay for their treatment themselves. While the use of this therapy is generally a long-term proposition, it can be an affordable one, particularly when an individual is going to be using a program of testosterone injections. The topical gels that have become so popular recently can be more expensive to use, and their results are not nearly as extensively documented as the use of injections, which have been around for decades. Additionally, many TRT doctors have found that their patients receive more consistency in their results by using the injectable form of treatment.

The cost of using Low T therapy is often far lower than the cost of many of the other prescription medications that adults in the US are currently using for their chronic medical conditions – and it is always more cost-effective to protect your health, which using medically prescribed TRT can help you to do. And when you also consider that your treatment for testosterone deficiency can improve your lifestyle satisfaction in addition to improving your vitality and wellbeing, its overall value to you becomes even more self-evident.

Yet this information that we are providing to you is representative of just some of the many questions that adults have regarding the effects of testosterone therapy; we know that you probably have a list of your own questions that have not been specifically addressed here. That is why at Nexel Medical, we encourage any adult who wants answers to their questions about using Low T therapy to contact us – and quickly receive the accurate and current information that we believe you deserve to have.
