What is TRT?
TRT or testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment that doctors give to males who have testosterone deficiency and are showing symptoms of low testosterone.
Taking prescription testosterone helps restore the levels of this hormone in the blood, reversing the symptoms of low testosterone. Men that receive TRT notice improvements in alertness, sexual function, energy, mood, increased muscle mass, fat loss, enhanced memory and cognitive function.
It’s not just for men with low testosterone due to aging; it can also be used to treat men whose bodies do not produce enough testosterone at any age.
Testosterone levels in men naturally decline after 30, and this can lead to many undesirable symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, reduced sex drive, depression, loss of lean muscle, brain fog and irritability.
If left untreated, low testosterone has been linked to more serious health conditions such as prostate cancer, cardiovascular irregularities and diabetes.
Testosterone can help men feel like their younger selves again.
Is TRT a new therapy
The origins of organotherapy (precursor to hormone replacement therapy) can be traced to the mid 1800’s. But it wasn’t until the 1930’s when the isolation of hormones can be found. In 1931 Adolf Butenandt isolated the androgenic steroid androsterone from urine provided by young policemen from Berlin, which was then processed by Schering pharmaceuticals to obtain 15 mg of this first androgen. While in 1935, Ernst Laqueur (1866–1947) and his group in Amsterdam extracted and isolated 10 mg testosterone from bull testes, which they found more active than androsterone and named it ‘testosterone’.
The same year Butenandt and others published the chemical synthesis of testosterone. This marked the beginning of modern clinical pharmacology and endocrinology of testosterone and male reproductive physiology.
Soon after its synthesis, testosterone became clinically available first in the form of pellets and then as injectable esters like testosterone propionate. From the mid-1950s on, the longer-acting testosterone enanthate appeared, which remained the major testosterone preparation for half a century.
In the 90’s and 2000’s transdermal and scrotal patches became widely available. Unfortunately these modes of administration yield only a fraction of the absorption of testosterone injections. Which up until today is widely used and accepted as the most effective way to treat men suffering from low testosterone.
What are the benefits of TRT?
Before getting into the benefits of TRT it is a good time to preface that discussion with the symptoms of low testosterone. Men suffering with low testosterone may suffer from some or all of the symptoms of low testosterone.
Symptoms of low testosterone:
- Lack of energy
- Low libido
- Brain fog
- Depression and/or anxiety
- Lack of enjoyment from life
- Loss of muscle mass
- Stubborn abdominal fat
All of these symptoms can be greatly reduced and often eradicated with TRT. Let us not forget the vital role that testosterone plays in a mans body. Testosterone is responsible for maintaining muscle mass, bone density, and red blood cell levels. It also helps to regulate mood, libido, and sexual function. Low testosterone levels can lead to problems such as depression, low energy levels, and reduced sex drive. In addition, low testosterone has been linked to heart disease and other health problems while high testosterone has been linked to success in relationships and work.
Therefore, it is important for men to maintain healthy testosterone levels. Testosterone replacement therapy can help to improve well-being, mood, and sexual function. It can also increase muscle mass and bone density. In addition, testosterone therapy can help to improve work ethic and relationships. Men on TRT experience many if not all of the benefits of TRT.
