Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Southend-on-Sea, Essex

Why Choose Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

Hormones are just as important for men as they are for women. Men and women produce the same hormones, only in different amounts. Men have higher levels of testosterone than women. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), is a form of hormone therapy in which testosterone is replaced. 

Many men with low testosterone report an improvement in mood, energy levels and libido after testosterone replacement therapy.

Male Hormonal Imbalances

Common hormonal imbalances in men include:

  • Andropause - Also known as the male menopause, andropause occurs as men grow older and their testosterone levels decline. Men entering middle age may report a loss of ‘joie de vivre’ – many may start to question their lives, their relationships and their work.
  • Adrenal fatigue - If your stress levels remain high for a prolonged period of time, your adrenal glands can't produce enough of the stress hormone cortisol.
  • Hypothyroidism -  When your thyroid gland is underactive, it's not producing enough thyroid hormones.
  • Hyperthyroidism - An overactive thyroid gland results in high levels of thyroid hormones and increased metabolism.

The Symptoms of Low Testosterone

The symptoms of low testosterone can be subtle for some and more obvious for others. Testosterone has many important functions, including the development of the bones and muscles, hair growth, the deepening of the voice and the production of sperm. After early adulthood, it’s completely natural for testosterone levels to drop slightly as years progress.

If a male is suffering from a low level of testosterone, the symptoms can often include increased body fat, reduced muscle mass and erectile dysfunction.
