What Is Low Testosterone Therapy?
There are 97105 articles in regard to Testosterone that can be found on Medline. Compare this with only 8776 about Lipitor. Research is ongoing, as scientists look at the benefits low testosterone treatment offers long term, and possible side effects. In the meantime, this Low T therapy, achieved using small doses of testosterone injections, has been accepted as an easy, successful option for many men who suffer from symptoms of low testosterone.
The complex interaction between hormones, the glands that produce them, and the organs and systems they regulate makes this a very challenging system to study. And, because each person’s system is so different, it is hardly an exact science. That said, for men with low T, whose testosterone levels are outside of the range considered normal, or on the low end of normal, testosterone replacement therapy has proven to be an effective treatment option.
Like with any serious therapy, a decision about this treatment should only take place after consulting with a licensed medical doctor like Dr. Mikhail Berman, who is also a testosterone specialist. As a physician, he is knowledgeable about hormone balance and gland function.
There are differences of opinion regarding what kind of replacement treatment is best and Dr. Berman can inform you of all the choices that are out there. However, one thing is certain, testosterone replacement therapy should only be prescribed and monitored by an MD, and preferably one trained as a hormone replacement specialist, like Dr. Berman. If low testosterone has gotten you down, hormone replacement is worth discussing.
The Signs and Symptoms of Low Testosterone
How Does Low Testosterone Therapy Work?
Several hormone replacement options have been developed to address the symptoms of low T. There are gels and topical treatments, supplements, organic remedies and testosterone injections. Because of their safety and effectiveness, Dr. Berman utilizes testosterone injections.
There are two reasons for this. First, the amount can be carefully controlled and administered more precisely so that 100% of the replacement reaches your system. Second, the dose can be the smallest amount needed to suit your individual, unique hormone system. No other method promises this kind of exact delivery.
Of course, as with all replacement methods, this should only take place under the supervision of a licensed physician. Medical doctors can conduct a thorough analysis of all of your hormone levels, gland functions, and other critical system checks. This is the only way to determine if replacement therapy is right for you. Dr. Berman is an integrative medicine practitioner, so he also guides patients into making lifestyle choices that can also raise testosterone levels naturally.
The general goal is to raise hormone levels to an optimal or “normal” agreed upon by respected, nationally known medical and scientific institutions. With testosterone, this is thought to be somewhere between 600 to 900 ng/dl (nanograms per deciliter) of testosterone in circulating blood.
The goal of testosterone therapy is not a radical change, but to help you become a slightly better version of yourself, someone with renewed energy, an increased sex drive, and a good metabolic system that keeps you at a healthy weight.
