Low Testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone responsible for men’s hair, muscle, deep voice and sex drive. After 30, the testosterone level begin to decline. Men might believe that their low sex drive might be linked to just getting older. However, this natural gradual decline in testosterone does not result in a near total lack of interest in sex and other health problems may be the cause.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

TRT is used for men whose low testosterone is caused by certain medical conditions such as disorders of the testicles (due to genetics, chemotherapy or infection), pituitary gland or a brain condition called “hypogonadism.” TRT was not meant for men who have low testosterone due only to aging TRT includes the topical treatments Androgel, Testim and Axiron.

Risks of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

TRT has been linked to increased cardiovascular risk, such as heart attack, stroke and death. Researchers have found that TRT users were 30% more likely to have a heart attack, stroke or die after three years of use. Men had a significant increase in this risk even after only 90 days of use.
