Testosterone Cream and Testosterone Injections:
The Anti-Aging Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Male Testosterone Levels drop at a slow yet unceasing rate beginning in the mid to late twenties. There has been a significant amount of clinical and scientific debate regarding exactly how Low Testosterone affects well-being as we grow older, but it is painfully obvious that Low-T impacts the male body in incredibly negative ways.
What is Andropause?
The clinical term for the slow and gradual decline of hormones in the male body that occurs in the thirties and forties is known as andropause. Although Andropause is primarily regarded as a Testosterone Deficiency, other hormones such as Human Growth Hormone also decline at a similar rate. One of the primary sources of debate in the medical community is regarding exactly who needs Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy and when is the correct age to begin treatment.
The American Society of Andrology has a simply stated opinion on the matter of Testosterone HRT. They believe that Testosterone should be prescribed only when two conditions are met:
The first condition is that the patient must be experiencing a clinically low level of Testosterone. This can be discovered via diagnostic blood testing.
The second condition is that the patient must be experiencing certain signs and symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency.
Some patients have relatively low levels of Testosterone yet are still able to function normally. Other patients have Testosterone Levels that are in the low range of normal, but still display major symptoms of Low-T.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy should be prescribed when a patient has both measurably low levels of Testosterone while also experiencing reduced quality of life as a result of that deficiency.
Who Needs Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists have their own criteria for who qualifies for Testosterone Replacement. The AACE regards Testosterone Deficiency by a medical term known as Hypogonadism. Hypogonadism refers to any disorder which hinders the production of sex hormones such as Testosterone and Estrogen, but also other hormones such as DHEA and Progestin. The AACE considers Male Hypogonadism to be a Serum Testosterone level that is beneath the bottom limit which is considered normal for healthy young adults.
The AACE signifies a clear change in scientific consensus that has occurred over the past thirty years. Originally, scientists and researchers believed that the slow decline in Testosterone Levels with age was a normal and healthy natural progression. After a generation of research, however, scientists are quickly coming to agreement that although the slow decline in Testosterone levels with age is normal, it is in no way, shape, or form healthy, and it hinders male physical, cognitive, and sexual health. The AACE believes that any patient with below normal Testosterone should be eligible for a Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy Trial. They also believe that patients who have Testosterone Levels near the bottom of the normal range should also be given the opportunity to try Testosterone Replacement.
Free and Total Testosterone
What is generally not completely agreed upon is exactly what Testosterone measurement should be the accepted line at which a male is considered to have Low-T. There are no standards as of yet regarding Female Testosterone Levels and Testosterone Replacement Therapy. There are two ways in which Testosterone levels are measured:
Free Testosterone This form of Testosterone is fully available to the body biologically and is not bound to any molecules.
Total Testosterone Total Testosterone refers to all Testosterone within the body, whether that Testosterone be free in the blood stream or active and molecularly bound.
What is Considered Low Testosterone?
For physicians in the United States, Total Testosterone below three hundred to four hundred ng/dl is considered Low-T in early morning tests. Although this is the American standard, this is a very imprecise value because normal Testosterone levels change throughout the lifespan. Also, the range listed above is not calibrated for age. When medical researchers determined normal Testosterone values, they averaged together Testosterone Rates for males of all ages, including very old patients who naturally have incredibly diminished Testosterone Values. For this reason, 300 ng/dl might be perfect for a sixty five year old male, but very deficiency for a guy that is only thirty.
Symptoms of Low-T
It can be quite difficult to diagnose Low-T in older men simply by the symptoms alone. The symptoms and signs are not specific to Low Testosterone. These are a few of the symptoms of Low Testosterone:
Loss of Sex Drive A reduced desire for sexual activity
Reduced Memory Decreased ability to recall memories or optimally utilize short term memory
Increased Fatigue and Decreased Endurance Interferes with a person’s ability to engage in physical activity
Reduced Bone Mineral Density Over time, reduced BMD can lead to life-threatening Osteoporosis and general frailty
Muscle Atrophy Without Testosterone, the male body is unable to sustain larger muscles
This is just a small subset of the symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency, but it shows that the symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency are often and easily confused with the general characteristic changes of the aging process.
Forms of Testosterone Hormone Therapy
There are many effective forms of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy, including:
Dermally Implanted Pellets
Gels and Creams
Side Effects of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
There are a couple of minor side-effects associated with Testosterone Replacement Therapy. These are:
Increased Production of Oil by the Skin
Development of Acne
Suppression of Fertility
A small minority of patients suffer from more severe side-effects such as:
Agitation of Existing Cancerous Prostate Growth Testosterone HRT does not cause cancer, but may worsen existing prostate cancer.
Worsening of Existing Sleep Apnea Among patients who are obese or suffer from Chronic Lung Disease, Testosterone can sometimes have the unintended effect of worsening sleep apnea. For most patients, Testosterone has the ability to reduce the occurrence of sleep apnea, but Testosterone and Sleep are intricately related and under particular circumstances, Testosterone Replacement Therapy can agitate Sleep Apnea.
Higher Levels of Hematocrit Hematocrit is a natural ingredient in the blood which acts as a thickening agent. There is evidence that Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy sometimes leads to increased Hematocrit levels, which can increase the risk of certain cardiovascular conditions. This phenomenon most often occurs in older patients who use Testosterone HRT, and with close monitoring, this causes minimal risk. If Testosterone Replacement leads to unacceptably high Hematocrit levels, the dose can be adjusted in order to alleviate the condition while also providing the benefits of Increased Testosterone Levels.
Testosterone and Cancer Screening
Because Testosterone HRT can complicate existing prostate cancers, it is of absolute importance that patients planning to undergo Testosterone treatments be tested for existing Prostate Tumors. There are two means by which patients are tested for abnormal prostate growths before beginning Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Before treatment begins, it is recommended that patients undergo a rectal prostate exam and absolutely necessary that they have their Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels checked before treatments begin. After Testosterone HRT has began, PSA and Hematocrit levels will be monitored closely in order to maximize the safety of the therapy.
Medical Benefits of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy produces a number of significant benefits. Patients who suffer from Low Testosterone are at a significantly increased health risk for a number of physiological disorders. Below is a short list of benefits to Testosterone Replacement Therapy:
Lower Risk of Type-Two Diabetes Healthy Testosterone Levels are tightly correlated with a healthy pancreas. Testosterone plays an important role in the proper utilization of insulin, and Low-T can greatly enhance the risk of Diabetes in both obese and normal-weight patients.
Reduced Risk of Osteoporosis Testosterone plays a vital role in the process of Bone Remodeling in Men. Without sufficient Testosterone Levels, the bones begin to leech calcium and greatly weaken over the course of a number of years. By the time osteoporosis has been diagnosed, the damage has already been done, and the bones are slow to repair themselves.
Increased Cardiovascular Health Testosterone helps keep cholesterol levels balanced, lowering LDL Cholesterol Levels while increasing HDL Cholesterol. Testosterone also regulates proper Triglyceride metabolism.
Lower Levels of Anxiety and Depression Testosterone significantly impacts overall mental health in ways we recognize but are just beginning to understand. Low-T is correlated with increased cortisol levels. High Cortisol is one of the primary factors for elevated levels of anxiety. High anxiety leeches the body’s ability to produce the hormones which contribute to a happy and healthy mentality, in addition to reducing the body’s ability to navigate stressful situations.
Decreased Chance of Alzheimer’s Disease Low Testosterone Levels are an independent predictor of Alzheimer’s Disease. Simply having Low-T increases the risk of being diagnosed with this horrendous disorder. Although the mechanism by which Alzheimer’s and Testosterone are interconnected are not fully understood, there is promising evidence that Testosterone Replacement Therapy may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s or delay the progression of the disease.
Healthier BMI Testosterone has the ability to both generate enhanced muscle fibers and increase metabolism. The increased metabolism provided by Testosterone targets adipose fat tissue, which is generally the hardest to eliminate on the human body. Over time, and especially in combination with a healthy diet and work out regimen, Testosterone has the ability to completely reshape the body, providing a more aesthetically pleasing figure.
Overall Reduced Mortality Risk All of the above benefits (and other benefits not discussed in this brief synopsis) combine and have the cumulative effect of reducing overall mortality risk. This means that as a result of Testosterone HRT, you have a much higher risk of living a longer and healthier life as a direct result of the treatment you have been provided.
Although there have yet to be expanded, longitudinal studies regarding the long-term effectiveness and safety of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy, there is significant clinical evidence that Testosterone HRT is a safe and effective treatment. In addition to this, there have been a number of small-scale trials which have shown that the long term benefits outweigh the costs for the majority of patients who are treated for clinically low levels of testosterone.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is the most potent of the sexual hormones, otherwise known as androgens. Most people like to refer to Testosterone as the man hormone, but both sexes need Testosterone in order to function properly. Women produce significantly less Testosterone than men, but Testosterone is still needed to maintain optimal hormone balance. Testosterone is one of the members of a collection of compounds known as anabolic steroids.
Testosterone also shares many molecular characteristics with cholesterol, though the two molecules affect the human body in very different ways. The human body produces Testosterone through chemical reactions with a precursor molecule known as DHEA. Testosterone is manufactured most abundantly by the Testes in men, but the adrenal cortex also produces Testosterone in much smaller amounts. In women, the placenta and ovaries produce Testosterone, albeit at a significantly lower rate than the testes are capable of. Testosterone can also be produced in both sexes as a result of chemical reactions with cholesterol.
Testosterone is a required ingredient for the production of a male in the womb. In the womb, female characteristics in many ways are default. Testosterone is necessary for they fetus to develop male differentiation, including but not limited to the development of a penis and testes.
Testosterone and Puberty
Puberty is the result of a combination of increased Testosterone levels and increased Human Growth Hormone Levels. Testosterone causes male secondary sex characteristics to develop, while Human Growth Hormone induces changes in height that occur in patients with healthy hormone levels. Testosterone essentially causes a boy to because a man. Facial hair starts to grow, along with body hair. The voice alters and deepens as the result of an influx of Testosterone.
Testosterone also plays a significant role in muscle development, which is why men naturally have larger muscles than women. Testosterone creates a biological situation in which it takes less effort to build more muscles. Women simply have a peak muscle capacity and size that cannot be breached under normal circumstances.
The Recent History of Testosterone Hormone Therapy
For well over twenty years, athletes of all shapes, sizes (and sexes) have utilized BioIdentical Testosterone HRT in order to improve their performance in the weight room, on the field, and on the track. Testosterone Replacement Therapy is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use as a Performance Enhancing Drug, but after a generation of field testing, it should be more than obvious that Testosterone Injections work, and work well.
Testosterone Replacemetn is also widely recognized as a valuable tool to maintain optimal health and ward off the effects of aging. Although Testosterone HRT is not approved as a tool for strength training and bodybuilding, the FDA has approved the drug for use as a means to treat clinically low Testosterone levels. You see, as we age, our Testosterone levels naturally decline. When Testosterone levels decline to an extent in which overall health and well-being become adversely affected, the clinical term for this occurrence is known as Andropause. Testosterone has been shown to restore youthful vigor, energy, and endurance for patients who suffer from this life-changing disorder.
Testosterone Becoming a More Widely Accepted Therapy
As time passes and people learn more and more about Testosterone, the general concensus about the Hormone Treatment rapidly changes. What people used to think of a a niche therapy for individuals interested in strength training and body building is now more properly understood as a means to restore normal and healthy function in aging men.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement is even recognized as a valid treatment for women with particular hormonal issues. For women, Testosterone HRT has been shown to improve libido and alleviate the affects of menopause. There is even some evidence that the treatment may be able to slow the progression of menopause, although clinical research is incomplete in this regard.
Bio-Identical Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy is a valid medical treatment and therapy that can be prescribed by a doctor to any patient over the age of thirty who has been clinically diagnosed with a Testosterone Deficiency. For men who feel that Low Testosterone is getting in the way of their life, Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy is a valid and safe way to extend the vigor of youth and boost overall life quality.
We encourage you to seek out the opinions of patients who made the decision to utilize Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy. We are certain that you will hear almost nothing but success stories regarding amazing Testosterone Supplementation.
When in our lives do Testosterone Levels Decline?
Testosterone levels hit their peak when we are in our late teens and early twenties. This is the period in which we are at our healthiest and strongest, and a lot of it has to do with the healthy Testosterone levels we experience during this era of our lives. Beginning in the late twenties or early thirties, however, Testosterone Levels start to decline. For many patients, this decline will begin to be recognizable early, although other patients experience the symptoms in a less precipitous manner. Some patients may feel that they may be a candidate for Testosterone Replacement in their early thirties, while others may have innately higher Testosterone levels or may simply respond more actively to lower levels of Testosterone.
Testosterone plays a significant role in physiological health throughout the human body. Testosterone is central to number of different biological tasks, including muscle development, bone maintenence, sex drive, sexual function, and central nervous system health. In addition to this, Testosterone helps maintain a healthy prostate and optimizes the function of bone marrow cells deep within bone tissue.
Benefits of Testosteone Supplementation
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy benefits male patients in a number of different and wonderful ways. After a single cycle of Testosterone Replacement, patients return to us and tell us that they feel healthier, stronger, and more attractive. They often exclaim that they feel as though they have had years added on to their lives. These aren’t just more years, they are better years. Testosterone HRT helps patients extend the well being of youth and early adulthood, allowing them to experience life in a fuller and happier way.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy not only does this directly through physiological changes that occur as a result of supplementation, but indirectly as well. Increased energy helps men go out and get more done. Testosterone encourages patients to go out and exercise more by helping the body get into shape more readily in response to exercise and physical activity. Testosterone not only has the potential to alleviate anxiety and depression directly, but men also look at themselves in the mirror and realize that they both look and feel better, which invites them to capitalize off of these physical and mental changes.
If you feel that Testosterone Deficiency s negatively impacting your life, Testosterone can do all of this for you as well. Today, Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy is easily and simply self-administered, so you can experience the benefits of Testosterone Gels, Patches, or Injections without the need for a continuous medical intermediary. In order to experience the benefits of Testosterone Supplementation, you only need to meet with a physician every once in awhile. You must undergo a physical and blood testing before initiating therapy, and every six months or so you will be required to undergo diagnostic testing to ensure that everything is going exactly according to plan. Besides this, you will be ultimately responsible for all aspects of Testosterone Administration.
The Truth about Testosterone
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy isn’t about flooding your body with Testosterone in order to have superhuman muscles. Testosterone HRT is simply about restoring optimal hormone balance by providing the body with Testosterone Levels which mimic those produced in your early adulthood when you were in peak physical and mental shape.Testosterone has been shown to have the capacity to alleviate and even in certain circumstances reverse the physiological decline of mind and body which causes older men to lose their energy, strength, and libido.
Testosterone has been shown to improve mucle tone by stimulating the amplified development of lean muscle fibers while also improving capacity for exercise and reducing fatigue. The various changes caused by restoring healthy Testosterone levels lead to an improved outlook on life and overall enhanced self-perception.
Testosterone and Sexuality: A Boon for Both Men and Women
Testosterone is important for the sex drive of both males and females. Testosterone levels drop in both men and women with age. In men, this change occurs more gradually as a result of Andropause, but in women, this gradual decline can become a severe and sharp decline as a result of menopause. For both sexes, declining Testosterone levels are linked directly with reduced interest in sex and diminished performance in the bedroom.
Historically, we have considered sex to be the realm of the young and fertile. Men and women used to think that reduced libido was just a natural consequence of the aging process-A process which was thought to be unavoidable and inevitable. This archaic view of sex is quickly changing however. You aren’t doomed to an unsatisfying and unfulfilling sex drive just because you’re getting a little older. It’s not your fault that your libido is in decline, its simply the result of a chemical imbalance of Testosterone.
Today, we fully recognize that sex drive and Testosterone production are intricately linked in both males and females, and Testosterone Restoration can help both sexes get back in the saddle in a way that pleases both partners. There is no reason to give in to the hopelessness that shrouds an unhappy bedroom. For many patients, Testosterone HRT can play a central role in preserving or restoring sexual excitement and ability throughout the aging process. Before you think about using drugs like Viagra or Cialis, consider that your sexual dysfunction may be the result of a deeper physical complication that may be hindering your life in other significant ways.
Effective Testoterone Hormone Treatments can help you bring back the joy of sex that you first experienced in your teens or twenties while also allowing you to utilize the skill and talent that you’ve develop in the years that have passed since that first time. Some patients even say that their sex life is better than it has ever been in their lives with the intervention of Testosterone Patches or Injections.
For couples that are happily married, it may be smart to consider undergoing Testosterone Hormone Replacement together at the same time to ensure that the two of you can keep up with one another. Declining Testosterone levels significantly affect the sexual excitement of both sexes, so if both of your flames are restored at the same time, this has the most potential to create the biggest and brightest fireworks. Imagine taking a look at your wife and being transported back to the day of your first kiss. Bio-Identical Testosterone has the potential to restore that feeling of love and desire.
Testosterone Replacement Becoming More Mainstream
Over the last decade, doctors have experienced a significant boom in patient interest regarding Testosterone. This is because as time has passed, patients are becoming increasingly enlightened to the various benefits of Testosterone Replacement. In addition to this, clinical research continues to shed light on the safety and effectiveness of the drug, encourages doctors to recommend Testosterone Replacement.
In the past, Testosterone Replacement was only provided via injection, but today there are numerous methods which can efficently transmit Testosterone into the human body. Testosterone Injections are still popular among those who wish to gain the most from their daily workout, but for those most concerned with their overall health and wellness, testosterone creams and patches have become incredibly popular.
Testosterone Injections provide the biggest burst of Testosterone, which helps patients work out harder and acheive more significant gains, but Testosterone patches and creams more effectively imitate the natural processes of the human body, helping the body remain in an enhanced state of hormonal balance. All of these methods are great ways to restore your Testosterone Balance, and your choice is dependent upon your hierarchy of goals and personal circumstances.
Today, men are become more and more aware that Testosterone Deficiency plays a major role in the aging process, and are starting to become more comfortable with the idea that Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy might be the right choice for them to set things right with their bodies. Testosterone Deficiency adversely affects male health mind, body, and soul.
Andropause vs. Menopause
As we mentioned before, women experience hormonal decline in a severe and steep way unknown to males, yet inevitable among females. Males experience this change more slowly, so we are just now fully coming to realize the implications of andropause. So far, scientific study seems to reveal andropause as a disorder with two primary causes known as hypopituitarism and hypogonadism. Testosterone is a form of hypogonadism, but hypogonadism can refer to a deficiency of any of the spectrum of both male and female sex hormones, and is not limited to Testosterone and Estrogen. Hypopituitarism is a term which refers generally to Human Growth Hormone Deficiency.
Both HGH and Testosterone rates decline at similar rates, and both hormones play a huge impact in preserving optimal health and function. Many patients are deficient in both Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone concurrently, and many physicians recommend utilizing both Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy and HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy in order to more fully balance a patient’s hormone profile. Undergoing both forms of hormone replacement simultaneously can amplify the results of both therapies. HGH and Testosterone affect many of the same physiological systems and for this reason, restoring both hormones at the same time can produce even more amazing results.
The Most Noticeable Benefits of Testosterone
There are a variety of aspects of aging and ailments associated with the aging process that the medical community once assumed were just unavoidable parts of the aging process. Today, as the body of medical knowledge continues to grow, we now recognize that many of these physiological changes that take place with age are directly correlated with wavering levels of Testosterone or other hormones such as Human Growth Hormone.
Most of the aspects of the aging process which have been associated with declining Testosterone levels are shown to be highly and effectively treatable with the help of Testosterone Supplementation. Testosterone Replacement leads to a number of fantastic benefits, including:
Increased Muscle Size Testosterone increases the rate at which muscle fibers grow as a result of exercise.
Higher Muscle Strength Testosterone increases not only the size of muscles, but the physical capacity for work within each muscle fiber.
Enhanced Energy Levels Testosterone can restore your ability to survive the day without draining of you of your vigor and intensity.
Reduction in Body Fat Healthy Testosterone balance encourages a healthy metabolism which helps you burn fat more quickly and maintain a more attractive appearance. Healthy Testosterone level promotes a thinner wasteline and can help you get rid of that unwanted potbelly.
Increased Capacity for Physical Activity Testosterone not only improves the results of exercise, but can also increase your ability to endure longer and harder workout sessions.
Low-T and Cholesterol
In the past, scientists hypothesized that Testosterone HRT had the negative side effect of increasing cholesterol levels. More recent research has negated this hypothesis, however. In the past, the form of artificial Testosterone was imperfect, and as a result had an adverse effect on cholesterol levels. Since Testosterone and Cholesterol share such similarities on a molecular level, artificial molecules that attempt to mimic the effects of Testosterone can also have effects on cholesterol as well.
This early, artificial form of Testosterone also affected cholesterol levels because the imperfections within this early form of Testosterone decreased the ability of the liver to function properly, thus contributing to increased cholesterol levels. The liver is the organ primarily responsible for the regulation of cholesterol, and any malfunction of this vital hormone will have an immediate impact upon serum cholesterol. Since those original studies, however, scientists have perfected Bio-Identical Testosterone.
Bio-Identical Testosterone is not just a molecule designed to mimic the effects of Testosterone. For all intents and purposes, Bio-Identical Testosterone is the literally the equivalent of Testosterone produced naturally by the human body. The two molecules are functionally equivalent. The reason the Bio-Identical Testosterone is superior to natural forms of Testosterone is simply a matter of price and availability. It is far cheaper to manufacture Bio-Identical Testosterone than it is to harvest real Testosterone.
This drives costs down, making it more financially viable to use Testosterone as an Anti-Aging Therapy. In addition to this, the increased availability of Testosterone via Bio-Identical Testosterone means that Testosterone can be ethically prescribed for more purposes and is not limited simply to those who have the highest medical need for the hormone.
More recent studies show that Testosterone actually plays a beneficial role by restoring healthy cholesterol levels and benefitting overall cardiovascular health. There are two primary forms of cholesterol that are associated with human health.
LDL and HDL Cholesterol and Testosterone
LDL Cholesterol is what is considered bad cholesterol. Although a certain level of this form of cholesterol is necessary for human function, elevated levels of LDL Cholesterol are associated with numerous negative health conditions ranging from hardened arteries to congestive heart failure, to stroke. Bio-Identical Testosterone has been shown to reduce LDL levels in the blood stream.
In the last generation, we have learned that there is a second form of cholesterol known as HDL Cholesterol that actually has a positive impact on heart health, reducing the risks of the very same cardiovascular complication LDL Cholesterol promotes. Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy seems to aid liver function by restoring optimal hormone balance and allowing the liver to maintain a healthy balance between the two forms of cholesterol.
Estrogen Replacement Therapy has also been shown to improve both HDL and LDL Cholesterol rates in women, but Estrogen HRT is not considered a long term solution because extended use of Estrogen Hormone Treatments has been correlated with an increased incidence of breast cancer.
The Future of Testosterone Research
Although it is clear that Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has the potential to change a man’s life in a number of beneficial ways, we are just beginning to fully understand the full capacity of this vital hormone to protect and promote optimal health throughout the lifespan. Every year we learn of new breakthroughs regarding this revolutionary form of Hormone Replacement Therapy. As the body of knowledge regarding Testosterone and its benefits increase, physicians and researchers will continue to find new and novel ways to improve the health of their patients through the utilization of Testosterone HRT.
Where it was once postulated that Testosterone only effected the mind via libido, it is now obvious that Testosterone plays a major role in numerous cognitive functions from memory to attention. Where Testosterone was once only considered only to enhance the physical qualities of the male physique, it is now clear that Testosterone plays a central role in the health and function of internal systems such as the liver and the cardiovascular symptoms.
If you feel that you may be a candidate for Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy, we encourage you to to try the treatment for yourself. If you suffer from a legitimate Testosterone Deficiency, we are certain that Testosterone HRT can improve your life in ways you might not even conceive.
As time has passed, the methods of Testosterone Replacement Therapy have become more nuanced and effective. In the not-so-distant past, Testosterone was often prescribed to be administered via pill and intravenous injection. Neither of these methods of Testosterone Replacement Therapy are effective or even safe.
Avoid Testosterone Pills and Intravenous Testosterone
We recommend you be wary of any dealer which attempts to sell Testosterone Pills. Testosterone pills are generally cheaper than other forms of Testosterone, but there is no proof that they provide any real benefit to the consumer. The digestive system generally breaks down any complex hormone to simpler protein configurations, and Testosterone is broken down significantly by the stomach. High levels of some of these proteins can even damage the liver or hinder its function, potentially affecting both your short term and your long term health.
Modern forms of Injectable Bio-Identical Testosterone are designed to be delivered Intramuscularly. This means that the injections are delivered deep into the muscles. Early forms of Testosterone Injections were designed to be delivered intravenously, but it was discovered that this was an incredibly inefficient and inaccurate means of restoring healthy and normal Testosterone levels.
Intramuscular Testosterone Injections via Testosterone Cypionate and Testosterone Enanthate have the capability to more accurately mimic the body’s natural release of Testosterone, whereas Intravenous Testosterone Injections were imprecise and the effects of an individual injection were short-lived. Intramuscular Formulations of Testosterone can be dangerous if injected into the veins, leading to potentially significant health complications.
This is because Intramuscular Testosterone Injections are delivered via an oil solution. This oil solution interacts poorly with the blood and is in no way intended to be delivered into the blood stream. A small amount of Intramuscular Testosterone injected into the veins can cause temporary coughing fits as the oil is disseminated into the blood stream. A large dose can lead to a condition known as a pulmonary oil embolism which can be potentially fatal if not treated properly and immediately.
Follow Testosterone Administration Instructions
This is why it is vital to follow proper injection protocol. Testosterone Injections are completely safe if administered in a responsible way, and there is a simple process for discovering if you have accidentally nicked a blood vessel with the tip of your needle which eliminates all risk of accidently intravenous contact.
It may seem obvious by now, but we do not offer Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy in the form of Pills or Intravenous Injection. We sternly recommend against the use of Testosterone Pills and we feel that Intravenous Testosterone Injections are far inferior to Intramuscular Injections. The forms of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy we provide are Testosterone Gels, Testosterone Creams, Testosterone Patches, Intramamuscular Testosterone Injections, Testosterone Transdermermal Pellets and Testosterone Transdermal Sprays.
Many people believe that Hormone Replacement Treatments require frequent doctor’s appointments, but this could be no further from the case. We have the capability to prescribe Testosterone Replacement Therapy remotely via our national network of affiliated physicians, so if you are eligible for Testosterone treatments, we can quickly and confidentially arrange all of the necessary steps toward acquiring safe and legal Testosterone Treatments. Besides the initial visit to our affiliate physician and subsequent hormone monitoring, the rest of you Hormone Replacement Therapy treatment can be performed in the solitude and privacy of your own home.
Testosterone and Prostate Cancer
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy is generally not an acceptable option for individuals who are currently suffering from prostate cancer. There is absolutely no clinical data that suggests that Testosterone HRT has the ability to directly cause prostate cancer, but there is evidence that Testosterone Replacement has the ability to exacerbate existing prostate cancer by encouraging the growth of existing tumors. For this reason, the most important tests for those who are considering Testosterone Bio-Identical Therapy are in regard to prostate health.
The initial physical and preliminary blood diagnostic testing will uncover out any potential underlying prostate conditions such as prostate cancer which will interfere with the effectiveness or safety of your treatment. In addition to this, Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Testing will be performed regularly in order to ensure that in the case of prostate cancer, Testosterone Replacement can be suspended immediately and cancer treatments can begin when they are most likely to be successful. Prostate cancer is the most common form of male cancer.
Luckily, prostate cancer can be very easily and quickly discovered through PSA testing that occurs throughout therapy. Patients undergoing Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy generally monitor their prostate health to an extent that far exceeds other individuals. The added benefit of Hormone Replacement Therapy is that if prostate cancer does develop during the course of Testosterone Supplementation, it will be caught very early during the phase when it poses the least threat to the human body.
Testosterone and Diabetes
Diabetes and Testosterone are intricately linked in ways that physicians and researchers are just beginning to more fully understand. Low-Testosterone is linked with insulin resistance in male patients. Over time this insulin resistance can develop into full blown Type-Two Diabetes. There is a growing body of evidence that suggests that Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to alleviate the negative effects of diabetes and insulin resistance.
Of course, this also means that diabetic patients that are using Testosterone Injections or Creams should be careful to monitor blood sugar levels. Testosterone has the ability to increase the effectiveness of insulin, which has the capability to reduce a patient’s need for Insulin Injections. The body has a very particular need for insulin, and changes in insulin sensitivity can alter the size of the dose of insulin needed to properly regulate blood sugar.
