Is TRT For Me?

Testosterone is a crucial hormone responsible for various functions, including muscle development, bone density, mood regulation and libido. Testosterone levels can fluctuate naturally with age, and some medical conditions can lead to low testosterone levels.  Testosterone Replacement Therapy, or TRT, involves supplementing testosterone through various methods.

Reset TRT and Weight Loss is committed to helping patients achieve optimal health and wellness.  We offer personalized testosterone therapy to help individuals with low testosterone levels reclaim youthful vitality and energy.  In this article, we explore the key factors to consider when thinking about testosterone therapy. 

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone primarily produced in the testes in men, and in smaller amounts in the ovaries, in women, and in the adrenal glands.  It plays a significant role in various bodily functions, including muscle and bone health, mood regulation, energy levels and sexual function.  Testosterone levels peak during adolescence and early adulthood and decline as we age.   

Signs and Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Low Testosterone levels, a symptom known as hypogonadism, can manifest in various ways.  It is important to recognize the signs and symptoms, as they can significantly impact your quality of life. 

Common signs of low testosterone include:

Reduced libido or sexual desire

Erectile dysfunction

Loss of motivation and drive

Fatigue and reduced energy levels

Mood swings and irritability

Decreased muscle mass and strength

Decreased muscle tone and definition

Increased body fat, especially around the abdomen

Difficulty concentrating or cognitive decline

Reduced physical endurance

Decreased self-confidence

Reduced overall sense of well-being

Decreased bone density leading to osteoporosis

Hot flashes and night sweats

Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or excessive sleepiness

Development of breast tissue (gynecomastia)

Dry skin and hair

When to Consider Testosterone Therapy

If you are experiencing the symptoms mentioned above and suspect low testosterone, it may be time to consider testosterone replacement therapy or TRT.  However, it is important to undergo proper evaluation and diagnosis.  TRT is not suitable for everyone, and its appropriateness depends on various factors, including your overall health, age, and the severity of your symptoms.

Here are some considerations for determining when TRT may be appropriate:

Low Testosterone:  A blood test can confirm low testosterone levels.  A diagnosis of low testosterone is made when levels fall below 300 ng/dL.  

Persistent Symptoms:  If you have persistent and bothersome symptoms of low testosterone that negatively impact your quality of life despite making lifestyle changes, such as improving diet and exercise habits, testosterone therapy may be an option.

Age and Overall Health:  Your age and overall health play a significant role in deciding whether testosterone therapy is appropriate.  Younger individuals with low testosterone may have different treatment goals than older individuals with age-related decline in testosterone. 

Underlying Conditions:  It is essential to rule out any underlying medical conditions or medications contributing to low testosterone.  Addressing these issues may alleviate symptoms without the need for testosterone therapy. 

Determine Your Candidacy for Testosterone Therapy

The Adam (Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males) Questionnaire is an assessment tool used by doctors when making the diagnosis of testosterone deficiency.  A positive result may mean you are a candidate for treatment.

  1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
  2. Do you have a lack of energy?
  3. Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?
  4. Have you lost height?
  5. Have you noticed a decreased “enjoyment in life”?
  6. Are you sad and/or grumpy?
  7. Are your erections less strong?
  8. Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
  9. Are you falling asleep after dinner?
  10. Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?

If you answer YES to 1 or 7, or if you answer YES to more than 3 questions, you may have low testosterone.
