Testosterone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is low testosterone?

Low testosterone refers to any situation in which the body’s levels of the testosterone hormone fall below the range of living a symptom-free life. 

Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone that is most prevalent in men. It helps regulate and control a variety of sexual functions, but it also contributes to muscle and bone strength.

What causes low testosterone?

As men age, their bodies naturally produce lower levels of testosterone than they did in their younger years. While this is normal, it can have a severe effect on sexual health and daily functioning. In many cases, men may grow accustomed to living life at “lower” levels than might be possible if their hormone levels were properly balanced by New England Low-T Center.

How is low testosterone diagnosed?

Low testosterone is diagnosed with a simple blood test.

How is low testosterone treated?

Treatment options include self-administered bioidentical hormone injections that can be performed quickly, safely, and discreetly in the privacy of your own home.

Why should you seek testosterone replacement therapy?

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you could benefit from an evaluation:

  • Loss of libido (sex drive)
  • Fatigue and decreased energy levels
  • Muscle loss
  • Weight gain
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Memory loss
  • Depression

Our licensed and trained medical staff can analyze your testosterone levels and determine if certain treatments might restore your optimal levels. At New England Low-T Center, we don’t believe in simply replacing your testosterone levels. We believe in optimizing your testosterone levels. That’s what makes us stand apart from the rest.

What if my doctor tells me my levels are normal even though I have symptoms?

We hear this all the time. Age management is not something that is taught in medical school. Unless your doctor has a passion for this area of medical treatment and has taken courses on this subject, their thoughts on treatment may be outdated. 

The insurance industry has set an extremely wide range of what is considered normal, regardless of how you may feel. Keep in mind, your insurance company's goals are different from yours. Your goal is most likely improving your health, resolving your symptoms, and living a long healthy life. Their goal is shareholder profit!

Testosterone levels for symptom resolution are as variable as what temperature shower we prefer. One man may feel great and have no symptoms in the low normal range, while another may need to be at the top of the normal range before feeling symptom resolution. 

At New England Low-T Center, normal is not a number. Normal is feeling great and symptom-free!

What’s the difference between testosterone replacement and testosterone optimization?

Put simply, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is the act of replacing the testosterone that your body has stopped producing.

Testosterone optimization therapy (TOT) is the art of helping you not only replace your lost testosterone to optimum levels but also helping you stay in that optimum testosterone range while looking at all aspects of your health and helping you reach a level of health beyond what you thought possible. Only then can New England Low-T Center help you live your best life.

What are the potential side effects of low testosterone treatment?

At New England Low-T Center, we monitor blood levels regularly to help detect possible side effects early. We can take corrective action as soon as possible.

While the FDA states that some men may experience worsening prostate issues and changes in red blood cell levels, cholesterol levels, hormone levels, and PSA levels. Hair loss, mood changes, breast growth, testicular shrinkage, decreased sperm count, and acne are also other possible side effects. Treatments may worsen sleep apnea, and they may or may not increase the risk of heart attack and death in people with or without heart disease.

What are the potential benefits of testosterone therapy?

With thousands of clinical studies published, the following are the overwhelming benefits of testosterone optimization therapy:

  • Decrease body fat (improved metabolism)
  • Increase muscle mass\
  • Improve heart & cardiovascular health 
  • Improve brain function (improvement in short & long-term memory as well as mental cognition)
  • Boost mood 
  • Improve depression 
  • Combat the risk of Alzheimer’s disease 
  • Increase bone density to help prevent osteoporosis and frailty 
  • Improve quality of sleep
  • Decrease and fight overall body inflammation
