As men age, natural bodily changes lead to the loss of muscular strength, sexual libido, and energy levels. Many of these changes occur because of the gradual loss of testosterone, the hormone responsible for most of the body’s physical, mental, and sexual functions. Thanks to testosterone replacement therapy in Fort Worth, we can now help you feel youthful and revitalized even in your older years.
What is testosterone replacement therapy?
Testosterone is an important hormone that helps men gain and maintain muscle, control weight gains, sleep properly, and maintain optimal sexual functions. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce testosterone is compromised, leading to erectile dysfunction, exhaustion, inability to sleep, and other changes. Testosterone replacement therapy restores your body’s youthful testosterone levels, thus helping you feel young again.
What are the different forms of testosterone supplements?
- Skin Patches/ Transdermal: A skin patch worn on the upper body or arm is an effective means of replenishing testosterone levels. The skin patch is applied once a day for a steady stream of testosterone throughout the day.
- Injections: We may provide testosterone injections according to a fixed schedule, giving your body a regular dose of testosterone to improve mental, physical, and sexual wellness. Testosterone injections are administered on the muscles or soft tissues.
- Subcutaneous Implants: We can place testosterone pellets underneath the skin on the buttocks or hips. The subcutaneous pellet releases a steady stream of testosterone throughout the day directly into your bloodstream, helping you maintain steady levels of testosterone. This method helps you avoid peaks and valleys of testosterone levels.
