Testosterone is the main hormone responsible for your classic “maleness.” It triggers the development of your sexual organs, contributes to strong muscle mass, keeps your sexual performance in tip-top condition, and even gives you a sense of well-being. So, when it wanes, so does your overall health.
Our team of specialists at Elite Physical Medicine in Mason, Ohio, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, Hebron, Kentucky, and Batesville, Indiana, can determine whether low testosterone, also called low T or hypogonadism, is to blame for your symptoms. If we find a hormone imbalance, we can correct it with a testosterone injection. Here’s how it works.
Testosterone naturally slows down as you get older, so age is the primary factor behind low levels. In fact, about 40% of men have insufficient amounts of testosterone in their blood by the time they reach age 45. But age isn’t the only culprit; others include:
These are just a few of the conditions that can cause your testosterone levels to plummet, but there’s hope for restoring your balance.
If you’re running low on testosterone, the best way to solve the problem is to address the root cause. For example, if you're overweight, shedding a few pounds may help you correct the problem. If you have uncontrolled diabetes, managing your blood sugar may reset your hormones as well.
But when you need more help getting back in balance, testosterone replacement therapy is extremely effective. Testosterone therapy comes in various forms, including daily wearable patches, topical gels, and implantable pellets, but at Elite Physical Medicine, we believe the best option by far is a testosterone injection.
Unlike other delivery formats, testosterone injections contain a precise dose of the hormone-based on your exact needs. And here at Elite Physical Medicine, our team of specialists formulates your injection with a custom blend of estrogen blockers and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), which can increase the size of your testicles and improve fertility.
For maximum effectiveness, you need a testosterone injection every two weeks or so. To eliminate the hassle of coming to our office that often, we teach you how to inject yourself. It’s a common practice and easy to do. We train you thoroughly here and help you get the hang of it, but if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us.
You can inject yourself with testosterone in three easy steps:
That’s it! Brief direct pressure or a small bandage takes care of any minor bleeding, but most men report little to no pain and are thrilled with the option to take care of it on their own.
If your testosterone is waning, and you want to experience increased muscle mass, a better sex life, sound sleep, weight loss, and more energy, schedule an appointment to find out if testosterone injections are right for you — call today or book online.
