Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)?
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a series of treatments intended to improve the testosterone levels in a patient. Normally, this is administered to men who suffer lower than usual levels of testosterone, a condition known as Low T. In a TRT regimen, wellness experts (like the staff at Modern Med Centers) guide the patient through a process of testosterone supplements over a period of time, with the intention of improving their existing testosterone levels.
- Topical gels are one common method, in which patients apply a clear gel containing testosterone to their skin once per day. The hormone then absorbs into the body through the skin.
- Patches. TRT can also come in the form of a patch. These treatments operate under a similar principle: testosterone is delivered to the bloodstream via skin patches patients wear on their arm or upper body, or mouth patches worn on the gums. These operate on similar principles to a nicotine patch, slowly administering its medication through the skin over a longer period of time.
- Injections. The most effective method, however, is direct injections of testosterone into the patient’s muscle. This allows for the fastest and most effective absorption of testosterone into the bloodstream, and is the most controllable method for wellness practitioners.
- Implants. It is also possible to administer testosterone via the implantation of small pellets into the soft tissues of the body, slowly introducing it into your bloodstream.
At Modern Med Centers, we strongly recommend the use of injections for your TRT regimen; it is the fastest and most effective way of optimizing testosterone levels, and it also allows our wellness practitioners to have the most control over how the hormone treatment is administered. However, if patients require extremely low doses, or are otherwise averse to injections as a form of treatment, Modern Med Centers is open to prescribing gels, creams and other methods of TRT as needed.
Do I have low testosterone !
As noted by the American Urology Association (AUA), normal testosterone levels typically range from 300 to 800 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). If a patient’s testosterone levels drop below 300 ng/dL, they are classified as Low T, and would highly benefit from one of our professionally-administered Testosterone Replacement Therapy programs. As men get older, they are more likely to suffer from Low T; approximately 50% of men over the age of 80 suffer from the condition, while estimates for younger men hover around 1%. Risk factors for Low T also include diabetes and obesity, as lower testosterone is more common for them.
You might be suffering from low testosterone if you are experiencing any one of the following symptoms; weight gain, thinning body or facial hair, erectile dysfunction, decreased sexual performance, inability to maintain muscle mass, fatigue or headaches, irritability or mood swings, etc…
There may be some whose testosterone levels are simply on the low side of normal – someone whose levels hover around 300-500 ng/dL, but do not technically qualify as Low T. These individuals may experience some mild symptoms of Low T – marginally low energy, a slight decrease in sex drive – and simply wish to optimize their testosterone levels. Some men simply wish to stave off the corresponding decrease in testosterone levels that naturally comes with age; with the right TRT regimen, it is possible to maintain normal testosterone levels even as maturity diminishes the body’s natural production ability.
At Modern Med Centers, we welcome anyone who wishes to improve their testosterone levels, whether they have Low T or want to improve the testosterone they already have. With our help, we are more than happy to work out a treatment program that works for patients whose T levels are just lower than they’d like them to be. Combined with a wellness program that includes diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes, TRT can help men of virtually any state of health improve their testosterone levels. This results in greater quality of life, improvements in sexual performance, and a healthier body overall.
“I have always been active and fit but could feel a decrease in energy and strength when I hit my early 40s. Meeting Kenny and Dr. J and getting on their testosterone therapy plan was the best thing I ever did. I take a modest dose of testosterone every week and it makes all the difference for me. I have a noticeable amount of more energy, strength and overall well-being. I would highly recommend him and his company to anyone.”
“Amazing service and great pricing plan. Before, during and after, these guys are with you every step of the way. Extremely customer friendly oriented and extremely responsive. What more can I say? I’d give them more stars if I could.”
“I’m currently 10 weeks into my program and my libido has dramatically improved as well as my mood. My brain is functioning better as well. Physically I’m noticing improvements in all aspects. I’m loving this program and quite sure I will never stop!”
