Testosterone Replacement Therapies Q&A

Why am I losing testosterone?

The amount of the hormone testosterone generally peaks in your teens and early adulthood. Aging brings a gradual decline in testosterone, which is secreted by your testicles. After age 30, your levels slide approximately 2-3% every year.

Over time, this decline in testosterone produces several adverse side effects, such as less energy, less mental sharpness, and a lower quality of life. At Wesleyan Medical Practice, your provider and team of experts offer testosterone replacement therapy to alleviate these symptoms and others.

Why is testosterone important?

Testosterone helps to maintain a number of bodily functions, including:

  • Bone density
  • Fat distribution
  • Muscle mass and strength 
  • Facial and body hair
  • Production of red blood cells

The hormone also affects the production of sperm and your sex drive.

How are my testosterone levels tested?

Wesleyan Medical Practice is where the team offers testing for testosterone, which is a crucial step preceding testosterone replacement therapy. Your provider recommends an initial panel of lab tests to measure your current levels.

These tests assess:

  • Testosterone levels
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Thyroid gland function
  • Adrenal gland function
  • Liver function
  • Diabetes
  • Nutrient deficiency

When your results come back, your provider contacts you to review your test results. They take time to explain how each of the test results affects your current health and wellness.

What should I expect from testosterone replacement therapy?

Your provider uses your test data to create a personalized health plan. You can choose between online telemedicine or in-person programs. 

Your provider recommends the amount of testosterone to take to supplement the hormone your body has lost. The goal of supplementing testosterone is to help you regain the testosterone levels of your youth — and enhance your quality of life. 

You may notice several benefits, such as:

  • More energy
  • Stronger sex drive
  • Increased strength
  • An overall feeling of sharpness and mental clarity

Balancing your hormones isn’t a quick fix. Your provider and team of experts recommend ongoing treatment to achieve lasting results — so you keep enjoying results for years and years to come.

If you’re curious if you’re a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy, call Wesleyan Medical Practice, or schedule a consultation online.
