If a man is diagnosed as having a reduced amount of testosterone in his bloodstream, he may eventually become a likely candidate for a TRT replacement program. Low levels of testosterone in the male human body are likely to occur when it fails to produce adequate amounts of testosterone for it to work normally. 

Testosterone is a qualified major androgen. Thus, it has a major role to play not only for the various physical changes that are expected to happen during puberty years (this would include the development of the testicles and the penis). It is also an essential factor for your bone and muscle development, sex drive, and even your general mood.  

Hormone replacement therapy for men

It is normal and typical for testosterone production to decrease with age. According to the American Urological Association, 2 men out of 10 senior men who are above 60 years old have a low or reduced amount of testosterone in their system. This tends to increase to 3 out of 10 men when they reach the age of 70 to 80 years old.  

Below is a compilation of some of the most common mistakes that TRT doctors or patients make when they embark themselves to a hormone replacement program for men:

Incorrect Dosage.

If you come across a rare individual who will assert to you that TRT therapy did not do him any good or did not work for him okay — most of the time it’s a matter of questioning the frequency of dosage or the dosage itself. 

One thing low T-level patients need to know is that testosterone is extremely patient-variable. This means to say that one guy’s 700 T-levels is likely to bring yours up to 500. Additionally, a testosterone reading of 700 is likely working good and fine to one guy but that does not necessarily mean that it is going to be right for you also.

The TRT replacement option you have is not fitting to your personality or way of life. 

Be reminded that there are TRT doctors who are in the not so good habit of prescribing only whatever protocol they are comfortable with or are most familiar with. This may come in gels, injections, or pellets.

It is sad to know that not all protocols could be expected to mesh with different personalities or lifestyles. Say, for instance, that you are a needle-phobic and you dread seeing one. It will cause you to have unexplainable jitters, this means to say that an injectable testosterone prescription is not likely going to become an effective option for you.  

Not Managing Potential Side Effects

The potential side effects of TRT therapy are almost always manageable. Some may come in the form of acne, moodiness, or hematocrit. 

Knowing how to handle these side effects, that is if they ever occur,  is paramount to the long-term outcome of any TRT replacement program. After all, nobody in the right frame of mind would ever be interested in trading off their set of health concerns (low interest in sex, low energy, etc) via a TRT therapy Sydney treatment only to have their place taken off by a different batch of health issues like moodiness, or acne.   

In most cases, it is just a matter of making tweaks to the system of delivery or dosage. Know for a fact that you have come across a reputable and competent TRT doctor if they are capable of handling the possible treatment for such problems without overreacting. 

Failure to Observe a Testosterone Friendly Lifestyle

The expected overall impact of every TRT treatment program is to change the quality of life of a patient. If properly administered by a reputable TRT doctor, it can make you feel like how you did some 20-30 years ago. 

If a TRT patient engages himself on activities that are not deemed as TRT-friendly way of life, it will always end up in counteractive results. If you drink excessive alcohol, smoke, become overweight, or not give a hoot regarding your current blood sugar levels, and not lifting a finger to exercise — your TRT therapy is bound to fail.
