Low Testosterone Replacement Therapy & Treatment
When we started this practice, we really had no significant clue about how much prevalence there is in terms of testosterone replacement therapies and centers out there.
We were getting patients coming to us telling us how they’ve been getting testosterone replacement shots from popular “T-clinics” or, sometimes, even off the streets.
This really forced us to start looking more into testosterone—causes of deficiency, when we should replace it, and what the best way to replace it is.
- Low energy
- Muscle mass loss
- Low libido (i.e. low sexual energy)
- Mood changes
- Bone health, low testosterone can affect bones and lead to osteopenia or osteoporosis.
If you feel like you have certain symptoms that could be due to low testosterone, go see your doctor.
First, you and your doctor will investigate your levels. If they are low, then there needs to be a careful investigation into why the levels are low in the first place.
Then, if you and your doctor decide to do testosterone replacement therapy, you have to carefully evaluate what the options are to get the testosterone levels back up to what’s normal for you.

In general, there is a lack of awareness about the role of testosterone in our bodies.
Wth aging, the levels of testosterone drop in everybody’s body.
- Part of your normal aging process, or
- if there’s an underlying cause that is leading to low testosterone
Depending on the cause, you can have different symptoms or a different progression of the disease.
This is why getting testosterone evaluations, treatment, and ongoing monitoring can be done a lot better at the primary care level.
