Testosterone Replacement Therapy Questions

Common Testosterone Replacement Therapy Questions That Men Ask

Men can often find it more difficult to personally communicate their medical questions to their doctors than women do. So being able to pose their testosterone replacement therapy questions to online TRT medical providers has given many men the opportunity to get the medical information they are looking for in a manner that feels more comfortable to them.

There could be countless individual reasons why some men are somewhat intimidated by the idea of discussing their Low T symptoms with their regular health care providers; it could be that their provider is a female … it could be that their provider always seems so rushed that they doubt they would be given the time to discuss their concerns … it could anything. At Nexel Medical, whatever the reasons are that men decide to contact us with their questions about using TRT, our doctors and clinical advisors are always happy to personally assist them.

In our experience, we have learned that there is a similarity among many of the questions that are being asked by men throughout the US who want to find out more about how to medically eliminate their Low T symptoms. And more men have become both more aware of the symptoms associated with testosterone deficiency, and have entered the stage of adulthood when hormonal imbalances can have an impact on their health, online TRT providers like Nexel Medical are seeing a increase in the testosterone replacement therapy questions that we respond to every day. What follows are our answers to several of the most frequently asked questions that we have been receiving recently.

What Will Testosterone Replacement Therapy Do for My Sex Life?

What Will Testosterone Replacement Therapy Do for My Sex Life?

Hands down, this is the top question that men ask. It’s because erectile dysfunction is one of the most common indications, and one that most men notice first, that a man’s testosterone levels have declined to below the range that is normal for their age. Having Low T can make it very difficult to get and sustain an erection and when that happens, a man’s sex life is obviously going to be negatively impacted. And without receiving corrective treatment to increase his male hormone levels, the impact is usually going to be a permanent one.

However, this is also one of the testosterone replacement therapy questions that men are the most relived to get the answer to, because using corrective medical treatment in the form of a hormone replacement therapy program restores virility in almost all cases. More than restores it, in fact – most men using TRT report that their sex lives have never been better or more satisfying. Their erectile dysfunction has been replaced by a strong sex drive that is being fueled by a healthy supply of testosterone; and their former performance issues have all been eliminated.

If you respond to using TRT in the same way that the majority of adult men do, you can anticipate having a satisfying and exciting sex life that would be the envy of all your friends (if only they knew). And you won’t need to rely on remembering to take a little blue pill, or any other pill, to be able to perform.

Does Using Testosterone Therapy Improve Strength and Energy?

Another common complaint that is shared by men with an inadequate testosterone supply is the onset of chronic fatigue and a decrease in their strength. This complaint often appears, in one version or another, in many of the testosterone replacement therapy questions that we receive. Some men want to know if using treatment will help to rebuild their muscle mass, which has been diminishing due to male hormone deficiency. Others want to know if their chronic loss of energy is due to Low T, or due to the fact that they are no longer able to sleep as restfully and wake up feeling tired instead of refreshed. But the loss of restful sleeping patterns can also be due to male hormone loss so either way, using TRT can certainly improve their symptoms.

Sustaining strength requires healthy bone density plus healthy muscle tone and mass, which using testosterone therapy can support. Most patients find that having more energy is one of the first benefits to appear after beginning a cycle of testosterone treatments, and most also report they are able to enjoy uninterrupted sleep as well. Another symptom of Low T that can contribute to chronically low energy is the depression it causes in some men. Through the consistent use of testosterone replacement therapy, all of these symptoms can be significantly improved.

Certainly the stronger bones and muscle that TRT helps to maintain are going to help build and sustain a man’s strength. Results will vary among patients based on many individual physiological factors, but virtually all patients will experience some level of improvement in both energy and strength. 

Can I Lose My Excess Belly Fat by Using Testosterone Therapy?

Adult-onset hormonal disorders are notorious for contributing to unhealthy weight gain, especially in the form of excess fat that is concentrated around the mid-section. So this is one of the testosterone replacement therapy questions we often receive that could lead to the discovery of other possible hormonal deficiencies, such as human growth hormone deficiency.

Both of these deficiencies, in their adult-onset forms, can contribute to the accumulation of excess belly fat, in both men and women. It is especially common in adult males to have developed both a testosterone and a growth hormone deficiency simultaneously, which can make it even more challenging to lose that stubborn excess weight that is carried front and center. That means that the answer to this question about using TRT is yes, it will help you to lose your belly fat; but we also need to qualify that answer by explaining that HGH therapy might also be advisable.

Fortunately, all it takes are simple to perform blood draw tests to find out if an adult has developed either a testosterone deficiency, or a growth hormone deficiency, or both types of deficiency. When comprehensive hormonal balance has been restored through using the appropriate type of hormone replacement therapy, the positive results can be dramatic and one of those results can be acquiring a leaner, healthier and more toned physique.   

Is It Safe To Use Testosterone Replacement Therapy Long-Term?

Many of the men who contact us with their testosterone replacement therapy questions already understand that it is an ongoing therapeutic commitment. Sometime they are concerned about something that they have heard or read about there being no scientific proof that it is safe to use this type of treatment for an extended period of time.

However, we explain that TRT has been in medical use for decades and over that time, there has been no conclusive evidence produced that shows it to high-risk to use it consistently in order to maintain healthy testosterone levels throughout adulthood. But since medicine is a profession that utilizes educated opinions as well as science, there are some in the medical community who do not support the use of TRT to treat an adult-onset deficiency, claiming that in their opinion, the potential long-term risks could outweigh the benefits.

Other members of the medical profession support its use and it is important to note that members of the hormone replacement therapy community, who have the most experience in the treatment of hormone disorders, believe that testosterone replacement therapy is a very beneficial form of health care when it is prescribed appropriately. The statistical data compiled over its decades of use indicate that in cases of clinically verified male hormone deficiency, using a correctly prescribed and supervised testosterone replacement program is a low-risk means of improving your health and vitality.

At Nexel Medical, we encourage all adults who have testosterone replacement therapy questions of any kind to contact us for medically reliable information and answers. Our clinical advisors are in continual communication with our experienced hormone therapy doctors and can explain how easy it is for you to get locally tested for adult-onset testosterone and/or growth hormone deficiency.
