Testosterone

If you are a man with symptoms of low testosterone you don't have to suffer. Testosterone replacement therapy is safe effective and affordable. But it is not as simple as simply getting a shot of testosterone or some testosterone cream to rub on your skin. To be properly treated you need a doctor with experience. Testosterone replacement therapy can have a beneficial or detrimental effect on your overall health.

First you need to know that there has NEVER been any proof that testosterone causes prostate cancer. If you already have prostate cancer, then you have to wait at least 5 years after you have been treated before you can start testosterone replacement.

Testosterone is available in many forms including injections, creams, ointments, implantable pellets and troches. There is no safe form of testosterone that comes in a pill.

Once you start testosterone replacement therapy, you will need to have your blood tested for multiple items. Testosterone replacement not only changes your testosterone level, but it also changes your estrogen, dihydrotestosterone, hemoglobin, good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. All of these items need to be watched and balanced. Too much or too little of any of them can cause side effects. Furthermore, if the only treatment you get is some form of testosterone, you have to watch for shrinking testicles. By using other medications in conjunction with testosterone, you can preserve testicular function, and benefit from changes in all of the above items.

By the time your levels are all balanced, you should feel significant improvement in most or all of your symptoms. Even better, if you have a legitimate medical need for treatment of low testosterone, your health insurance may cover part or all of your testing and treatment.

While you are being treated, you will need to monitor yourself for certain side effects. Side effects that can happen, and can be fixed include swelling of your legs feet and ankles, breast tenderness and growth (also called "man boobs"), decreased ejaculation, mood swings from crying to rage, acne and oily skin. All of these issues can be addressed by a knowledgable physician. Testosterone therapy is not a do-it-yourself project!

Medications that are used in conjunction with testosterone replacement therapy may include ArimidexProscarAvodart, and HCG. Some men even need to donate blood every few months to keep their blood from getting too thick.

Is testosterone therapy worth all the trouble? You bet it is! Done properly with help from a knowledgeable doctor, you will feel better and you may even live longer.
