Aging and Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Aging. Once thought to be an unavoidable eventuality that will slowly destroy our body and quality of life from within the process of aging is now something that can be directly influenced through medical science. While there are many symptoms of aging there is one underlying factor that plays a role in causing us to grow old.

The main proteins in our body that control it's different functions are hormones. There are two main hormones that play a big role in how aging affects the human body, testosterone and human growth hormone. This site is dedicated to providing you with information the role testosterone plays in your body, the problems that occur as your testosterone levels decline, and what you can do to take charge of your life and prevent some of the previously unavoidable side effects of low testosterone levels.

Testosterone is Important

Testosterone MoleculeTestosterone for men is like water for fish, you just aren't going to make it very far without it! This hormone is literally the source of male virility. Testosterone is much more prevalent in men than women and is responsible for all masculine traits, including muscular development, sexual drive and ability, metabolism, and mental function.

When a man hits puberty his testosterone levels rise dramatically, leading to a large gain in height and size, development of the sexual organ and the beginning of semen production and fertility, a deepening of voice, and facial and body hair. It is this hormone alone that separate the men from the boys.

Testosterone Levels Decline with Age

Levels often begin to fluctuate from the age of 20-29 but once you hit 30 it's all down hill from there. While maintaining a rigorous exercise routine and eating healthy can help slow the decline nothing you can do on your own will prevent this sapping of male virility from your life.

While many people will say that aging is just a 'fact of life' or that 'it's natural to grow old' we maintain that this is a defeatist attitude that will only lead to diminished quality of life. Real men will meet this challenge head on, taking a proactive approach to addressing this problem the same way they would confront any other problem that comes their way.

Treating Testosterone Deficiency

In today's world of medical miracles there are numerous treatment options available to men who aren't going to take declining testosterone levels lying down. From creams and gels or patches that contain testosterone and can be applied topically to testosterone esters that are injected into a large muscle mass, usually in the glutes or thighs. All of these options have different pros and cons, making it very important that you consult with a physician before and during any testosterone replacement therapy cycle.
