Testosterone Treatment Information


Testosterone is a steroid hormone produced in the male testes. Though testosterone is thought of as an exclusively male hormone and is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics, it is not unique to males. Testosterone is also produced in the liver and adrenals in women.

Testosterone benefits include...

 

  •     Lowers Cholesterol
  •     Enhances Sex Drive
  •     Improves Memory
  •     Builds Lean Muscle
  •     Improves Mood
  •     Improves Sexual Performance
  •     Protects Against Heart Disease
  •     Increases Energy

 

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is sometimes pronounced as testostron, testrone, testerone and is the principal androgen, or male sex hormone. One of the group of compounds known as anabolic steroids, testosterone is secreted by the testes but is also synthesized in small quantities in the ovaries, cortices of the adrenal glands, and placenta, usually from cholesterol. Testosterone is necessary in the fetus for the development of male external genitalia; increased levels of testosterone at puberty are responsible for further growth of male genitalia and for the development and maintenance of male secondary sex characteristics such as facial hair and voice changes. Testosterone also stimulates protein synthesis and accounts for the greater muscular development of the male (see metabolism). For many years, synthetic steroids similar to testosterone research have been used by athletes with the goal of improving performance, although recent medical research has shown that these drugs may have a wide range of harmful side effects.
When does it decline?
Testosterone begins to decline in men at about age 25. Testosterone has a number of effects on muscles, bones, the central nervous system, and bone marrow, the prostate and sexual function. Androgens, especially testosterone, regulate the normal growth and development of male sex organs and promote other male characteristics, such as body hair, muscle mass and a deep voice. The most common type of treatment for testosterone deficiency is known as testosterone replacement therapy.

Men who receive testosterone replacement consequently report that they feel sexier, stronger and healthier. They state that it makes them feel as they did when they were in their prime. After all, this is what replenishment of hormones is all about. It is about restoring hormones to youthful levels so you can feel as you did when you were at the peak of your physical and mental ability. Testosterone can stop and reverse the physical decline that robs men of their energy, strength and libido. Testosterone can restore muscle tone and improve stamina. Testosterone Therapy can restore healthy sexual excitement and desire, which in turn, results in an improvement in mood and overall well being.

Testosterone is responsible for the sex drive for both men and women. As testosterone diminishes with age, so does the sexual functioning in both men and women. Restoring testosterone to youthful levels in both men and women can reverse the situation. All too often, men and women automatically assume that as they age, their sexual capacity will diminish. There is no need to accept this loss of sexuality. Testosterone can play a critical role in helping to preserve and even restore sexual function so that we can live our extended life span with the same excitement and enthusiasm we enjoyed during our youth.

Physicians are witnessing an explosion of interest in testosterone as a result of our growing realization that testosterone levels decline with age and that many men suffer serious consequences to their physical and mental health as a result. In women, it is expressed as menopause, whereas, in men, it is expressed as andropause. Many of these symptoms and disease processes that we come to accept as normal aging are processes that are actually secondary to low testosterone levels and are easily correctable. Testosterone supplementation results in increased muscle strength, muscle size, increased energy level, decreased fat and increased desire and endurance for exercise. Now both men and women may be treated for their sex hormone deficiencies.

Testosterone replacement in the past has been associated with increased cholesterol levels. We feel this is probably secondary to the use of synthetic testosterone that resulted in liver dysfunction and the concomitant elevation of cholesterol. Studies now show that replenished with natural testosterone results in a decreased cholesterol and increased HDL, similar to what has been realized in women taking estrogen.

Clearly, testosterone is shown to have a positive impact on our health and well being, our moods and our ability to learn and retain information. Testosterone has been administered in the form of injections and oral supplements. We prefer not to use either of these methods as the testosterone is in the synthetic form. Testosterone patches are also available. We have found these patches unacceptable and secondary to the ability to get optional blood levels and feeling of the patch. Most patients prefer not to use these patches after experimenting with them. The method of choice is natural testosterone gel that is applied to the skin.

Testosterone should be used if one has prostate cancer. Testosterone has not been shown to cause prostate cancer, however, if one does have prostate cancer, testosterone may cause accelerated growth of this tumor. Therefore, there is a need to monitor the PSA on a regular basis to assure that one does not develop prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. It can be easily detected by an annual PSA test. In addition to testosterone supplementation, Total Rejuvenation recommends the daily use of Saw Palmetto, which is a medication to protect the prostate and prevent enlargement of the prostate due to formation of DHT. Most men develop prostate hypertrophy in their later years, and this can be effectively treated and prevented by daily use of Saw Palmetto.

Testosterone has a number of effects on muscles, bones, the central nervous system, and bone marrow, the prostate and sexual function. Androgens, especially testosterone, regulate the normal growth and development of male sex organs and promote other male characteristics, such as body hair, muscle mass and a deep voice. The most common type of treatment for testosterone deficiency is known as testosterone replacement therapy.

Low Testosterone

As testosterone levels decline, many men feel as though they're "getting old" much faster. In fact, many symptoms, once considered a natural part of the aging process like lethargy, depression, irritability, sexual dysfunction, and mood swings, may actually be the low testosterone symptoms. Sound familiar? In men, the low testosterone levels lead to Andropause, often referred to as "Male Menopause".

Annual Testosterone Decline Rate in Men

300 nanograms/dl is the standard testosterone limit below which it is termed as low testosterone level. Testosterone decline and low testosterone symptoms are common with the aging process. Starting around the age of 35 to 40, testosterone levels (Total Test) in men, decline by roughly 1% each year.

Low Testosterone (Hypogonadism) Types

In medical terms, Hypogonadism is a decline in the normal production of testosterone hormone. Its categorization according to the problem area is as under:

  1. Primary Hypogonadism, when problem is in organs
  2. Secondary Hypogonadism, when problem is in pituitary gland
  3. Tertiary Hypogonadism, when problem is in Hypothalamus

Low Testosterone Symptoms and Effects of Low Testosterone in Men

Low testosterone levels involve many worst low testosterone symptoms that deteriorate the life of a suffering man. Few symptoms of declining testosterone are,

  • Visible fat belly
  • Trouble in orgasm
  • Testicular shrinkage
  • Loss of energy and stamina
  • Less fuel for a man’s sex drive
  • Feeling of depletion at day end
  • Irritability with family and friends

  • Low production of fluid containing sperms
  • Gloomy feeling with lowest optimism level
  • Lack of “electricity” (Numbness) in the genital area
