Top 5 Benefits of Treating Low T

Oct 02, 2020 03:57PM ● By Shae Marcus

Low testosterone, more commonly known as Low T, is detected by a simple blood test that measures levels of circulating testosterone, the hormone that’s famous for its role in male dominant traits such as a deep voice and facial hair. Many may not know that it also plays a role in physical and mental well-being. 


A Better Body and a Better Life

Living with Low T can be more than uncomfortable―it can be disruptive. Symptoms may show up in both one’s physical and mental health. Testosterone levels naturally begin to drop in men as they enter their 40s. But if they fall too low, it’s time to seek help. If one is experiencing unpleasant symptoms, check out this post to learn if it might be Low T (link to symptom blog post).


By balancing one’s testosterone levels with U.S. Food & Drug Administration-approved treatments, one can improve your daily life. Here are five of the top benefits experienced from Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).


1)   Sexual Health

If one has a low or non-existent sex drive, testosterone is a hormone that plays a key role. Studies have shown higher levels of testosterone are often found in men with higher levels of sexual activity. If one is experiencing symptoms affecting sexual health, increasing testosterone may enhance libido and desire.


2)   Energy

Men experiencing Low T often complain that they feel fatigued, exhausted, weak or have lost their desire to exercise. When testosterone returns to normal levels and one engages in a healthy lifestyle, symptoms of fatigue can quickly fade away. 


3)   Muscle Mass

Testosterone plays a key role in muscle and body composition. This means low levels of testosterone can cause a decrease in lean muscle mass. TRT can help return testosterone to levels that will help build or maintain muscle. Increasing the percentage of lean muscle mass in one’s body will improve body composition so one can look and feel their best. However, to increase strength, one will want to combine a treatment plan with strength training exercise.



4) Lose Weight and Reduce Body Fat

For those battling their bellies, aging too often means an unwelcome increase in body fat, particularly belly fat. TRT, combined with moderate exercise, can produce significant weight loss in men with lower-than-normal levels. Correcting or balancing testosterone levels helps to maintain lean body mass and shed unwanted body fat.


5)   Sleep

Men diagnosed with Low T often report troubles in sleeping. The relationship between Low T and sleep is tricky. Testosterone is produced during healthy sleep cycles. So, while Low-T can disrupt one’s sleep, such a problem can also add to low production. Once testosterone levels are restored, one should experience more restful and longer lasting sleep.


Testosterone Replacement Therapy is safe and effective.

Millions of men use FDA-approved testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to re-balance their testosterone levels.


Men can get started in three easy steps: having a confidential consultation followed by lab work and vitals, and then having a personalized treatment plan developed for them.


Patients can begin to feel the benefits of testosterone treatment therapy in as little as four to six weeks.
