Testosterone Replacement

By Dr. Luigi Santorini

Testosterone deficiency or androgen deficiency syndrome is a lot more common in people than the detractors of this vital hormone would have us believing. There are many web sites and articles to be found in mainstream and scientific journals that claim Hypogonadism (an example being low testosterone also called hypotestosteronemia) is a "general exaggeration" concerning marketers promoting the concept of "Is it Low T?", but for more than a 100 years, research has been conducted using injectable testosterone shots on men. In more 10,000 studies on humans (men and women) that have been conducted with this major androgen hormone, the results definitively prove Testosterone is vital to the health of men and women. The number of Testosterone prescriptions has climbed exponentially in the most recent decades, indicating this is no fly by night medical treatment fad.

Testosterone popularity started in the 1950s

Testosterone was first being given to patients in significant numbers during the 1950s, it has since that time in the middle of the last century, continued to rise in popularity for one simple fact, replenishing testosterone when there are genuine clinical necessities for it works to relieve a number of quality of life issues. We discuss these quality of life issues in great detail on this web site and hope you will take the time to read what we have to say about TRT - testosterone replacement therapy and replenishment treatment for men.

Are Testosterone commercials on TV false advertising?

You have seen commercials with men in their late 40s and 50s that are physically fit, claiming that they were struggling with their weight and had lost their energy, losing their sex drive in the process and were no longer the sexual rhinos they were decades before. These commercials are not hype. Some men start to generally struggle with their weight in their late 30s to early 40s, they also lose their vitality and sex drive as a normal part of human nature that comes with aging. Men who use testosterone and balance their other hormones find they get their energy back, lose weight and have a new found sense of motivation for life.

New England Journal of Medicine Study on Testosterone

There have been some studies (like a 2009 study in the New England Journal of Medicine) indicating that men on testosterone replacement therapy were 400% more likely to experience some form of cardiovascular issues or disease, but yet there are many other studies showing that 1 in 3 men who had a heart attack also were testosterone deficient. This suggests that perhaps too much or too little testosterone is dangerous to ones health. Our clinic looks to put men in their optimal zone for testosterone, not give them body builder doses. The goal of testosterone therapy should be take it slow and steady, with low optimal doses, and never push the envelope. If you put your Testosterone levels in the optimal zone, which is what we strive for, you will feel amazing.

Testosterone Cream and Gel Dangers of Transmission

Our clinic provides testosterone cypionate, enanthate and propionate injections or in the gel and cream formats. There are risks with the gel and cream formats for me, like exposure to female partners, pets and kids, so one needs to be extremely cautious and conscious about these issues. Transfer of testosterone gel from a man to woman could cause excess hair to grown on a woman, alter their menstruation, make their voices deeper and upset their hormone balance. In kids the unintended transfer of testosterone could cause premature puberty. This is why we generally prefer the injection format, because there is no risk of transferring testosterone by contact once it has been injected into the body. Pets who might inadvertently get testosterone transmissions can become aggressive and their genitals enlarge.

Testosterone Side Effects and Androgen Abuse

There are risks, dangers and side effect of testosterone cream, gel and injection abuse to be sure, though not as common as the detractors make it out to be, but there are risks of tenderness in the pecks (breasts), swollen nipples, acne, an increased risk of blood clots, some studies indicate there are increased risks for prostate cancer, difficulty breathing during sleep time (sleep apnea), changes in the volume of the testicle (mitigated with HCG injections) and lower sperm count. There are also issues with anger management. We provide other articles on this web site that go into greater detail about testosterone abuse, side effects, benefits, risks and dangers.

The British Medical Journal Analysis of Testosterone Research

The British Medical Journal analyzing the European Male Aging Studies believes that Low T or hypotestosteronemia being a combination of sexual issues and Low Testosterone found that 5% of men in their 70s, 3% of men in their sixties, about 1% of men in their 50s and less in their forties met criteria for diagnosis, yet the facts on the ground are different in reality, as millions of men are getting their blood tested for low-t and answering questions about their quality of life that suggests they might be good candidates for Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
