What is Low T?
TRTMD Men’s Health Clinic frequently provides low T treatment and therapy for men between the 35-50 years old. The reasons for this shift can include a variety of reasons that are not all completely understood. However, some of them include environmental toxins, opioid prescriptions, marijuana use, and sedentary lifestyles. Low T results in weight gain, muscle loss, depression, sexual dysfunction, and body aches. The onset of symptoms is often subtle, and men tend to ignore them and press on with life. Testosterone therapy and treatment can restore the zest and drive we knew as younger men.
The benefits of low t treatment and therapy include increased energy and strength, increased muscle mass, decreased osteoporosis, improved cholesterol profile, lowered blood sugars, improved sexual function, and increased longevity.
A decrease in sex drive or erectile dysfunction suggests low T. Other symptoms include decreased energy or strength, decreased enjoyment of life, sadness or grumpiness, falling asleep after dinner, or a recent loss in work performance. The Adam Questionnaire is a sensitive tool used to screen for low T. Are you a 35-50-year-old male suffering from low T? TRT MD is here to help. Contact us today.
Yes, when prescribed and managed by a licensed physician. Testosterone is a controlled substance which must be appropriately prescribed by a medical professional. Your clearance may require you to disclose prescribed medications to your agency.
No, Dr. VanAntwerp performs all necessary screening and exams. You will receive an order for comprehensive blood work when you book your consultation. Results will be reviewed at your complimentary history and physical.
All complaints require a detailed history and physical. We frequently see patients who have been told that they have a “normal” testosterone level who in fact have Low T. To have have a complete understanding of male sex hormones the following tests must be performed: albumin, total testosterone, free testosterone, bioavailable testosterone, sex hormone binding globulin, estradiol, luteinizing hormone, and follicle stimulating hormone.
I found that I had reached a plateau in my physical conditioning, was generally tired, and had reduced levels of energy. After careful consultation with me and in review of my lab work, Dr. VanAntwerp started me on a course of testosterone treatment. I have found that I wear my belt on the 4th hole, instead of the first; I have lost fifteen pounds, and have leaned up greatly; and that my energy levels are on the rise again. In addition to the physical benefits described, I have found my mood to be more positive, and have seen phenomenal changes in my blood work - my lipid numbers are significantly better, there has been no change in my PSA score, and overall my blood chemistry is much closer to normal than it has been in a long time.Anonymous
The staff is great, I trust their medical advice and care, and they treat me like family. It is well worth looking in to this course of treatment if you are in a rut, work in a stressful occupation, or find yourself a half-step behind how you used to be.Anonymous
