Reclaim optimal vitality & feel like yourself again

Testosterone is a vital hormone responsible for developing male characteristics and maintaining muscle mass, bone density, and sex drive. As men age, testosterone levels naturally decline, leading to symptoms like fatigue, reduced muscle mass, increased body fat, and decreased libido. Low testosterone can also affect mood, causing irritability or depression. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Derby, KS, our expert team provides effective solutions to manage and treat low testosterone levels to help patients feel like themselves again.

The solution: testosterone therapy (TRT)

Testosterone therapy (TRT) involves supplementing the body with synthetic testosterone to counteract low levels. Administered through injections, patches, gels, or implants, TRT aims to restore normal testosterone levels. It works by mimicking the natural hormone's effects, binding to androgen receptors in various tissues. This stimulates protein synthesis, increases muscle mass, improves bone density, and enhances libido and mood. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, our TRT programs are tailored to individual needs to ensure optimal results.
