Knowing the risks of hormone replacement therapy is important and information about the risks are abundant online. However, understanding the benefits of testosterone hormone replacement therapy is equally important. If you’re struggling with low testosterone and aren’t sure what hormone replacement therapy might do for you, you might be confused when you take to Google. Finding a solid list of benefits is difficult because treatment affects everyone differently, but here are some common benefits you are likely to experience.
Often, patients with low testosterone face fatigue that feels permanent. Shaking the fog is difficult because your body doesn’t have what it needs to do so effectively. When you undergo testosterone replacement therapy, many report increased energy levels as well as more even energy throughout the day.
This is perhaps the most common and most commonly searched benefit when it comes to hormone replacement therapy involving testosterone, but its prevalence makes it all that more important to mention. Increased sex drive is extremely common, as is an increase in quality of erections. Low sex drive or erectile dysfunction are two of the most common reasons men seek hormone replacement therapy, but increased sex drive isn’t the only benefit that can change your life for the positive.
Because testosterone is so heavily intertwined with a body’s ability to build muscle mass, many men who undergo testosterone replacement therapy find that their body fat percentage decreases and building lean muscle mass becomes much easier as testosterone levels rise to normal levels. Essentially, testosterone treatments help weight loss.
As we mentioned at the beginning of this blog post, finding a firm list of benefits for testosterone hormone replacement therapy is difficult because the benefits are nebulous. They vary from person to person because each person’s own body chemistry – from the reasons behind their low T to how they react to medications and treatment in general – will impact the outcome. That’s why it’s important to discuss your options with your doctor before undergoing any kind of hormone-based therapy, and to keep an eye on side-effects that may arise. However your body responds to it, testosterone replacement therapy has given countless people a new lease on life, a brighter outlook, more confidence, and a better understanding of their overall health.
