Testosterone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is testosterone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a medical approach designed to address testosterone deficiency in individuals, typically men, experiencing symptoms related to low testosterone levels. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical testosterone is derived from natural sources and is structurally identical to the testosterone produced by the human body.

Your treatment begins with a thorough evaluation by the team at Energize Testosterone & Wellness Center, including blood tests to measure your testosterone levels. Based on the results, they create a personalized treatment plan for you, often involving the use of bioidentical testosterone injections. The team monitors you to ensure your hormone levels stay within the optimal range.

Why might I need testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment for low testosterone, a condition that often affects men as they age. This can trigger a wide variety of symptoms that can disrupt your daily life and reduce your sense of well-being. 

You might explore testosterone replacement therapy if your low testosterone levels cause symptoms such as:

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Depression

Symptoms like these aren’t exclusive to low testosterone, which is why your initial nine-panel blood test is critical to the success of your treatment. The team can tell you if testosterone replacement therapy is a good fit or if you should consider other options based on the underlying cause of your symptoms.
