Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Charleston, SC
It is common for testosterone levels to decline as men age. However, when levels drop rapidly, testosterone replacement therapy may be needed to keep the body functioning at its best. Healing at Sweetgrass offers testosterone replacement therapy to men who are battling low T and reside in or around Charleston, SC.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is the male sex hormone, equivalent to estrogen in women. Testosterone is produced by the testicles and regulates the development of the male sex organs and characteristics, including fertility, fat distribution, and muscle mass and red blood cell production. As men age, testosterone levels decline. Low levels of testosterone often referred to as low T, can cause a number of negative effects on a man’s mental, sexual, and physical health.
Signs of low testosterone include:
- Decreased sex drive
- Muscle loss and increased body fat
- Thinning hair
Low Testosterone Treatment
There are several contributing factors to rapidly declining testosterone levels in men besides age. These may include weight gain, diabetes, and exposure to environmental toxins. When symptoms of low T become evident it is important to see a physician to determine the cause and a course of treatment. One of the first and best methods of treatment for low testosterone includes weight loss. Losing excess weight can help raise T levels. Weight training, along with other resistance exercise, is proven to have the greatest effect. Testosterone replacement therapy is also a common treatment for low testosterone.
What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone replacement therapy is a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to supplement the body’s inability to produce sufficient amounts of testosterone naturally. When the body is no longer capable of producing enough testosterone it is referred to as hypogonadism and HRT is necessary. Testosterone replacement therapy is offered at Healing at Sweetgrass as weekly or twice weekly self administered injections. Purity and potency is guaranteed.
