Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Men

Testosterone is a steroid hormone required in different physiological processes which include nutrient metabolism and reproduction. Present in higher proportions in men, testosterone is accountable for adipose composition, muscle strength and accumulation, sperm cell manufacture, and sex drive modulation.

Decline in Testosterone

Aging causes fluctuations in the production of hormones including testosterone. The body yield of testosterone is notably highest at puberty, and declines as men reach their 30s. Consequently, impotence, reduced libido, decreased bone mass, infertility, hair loss, sleep disruption, and other related conditions are experienced.

How is Low T diagnosed?

One of the ways to determine Low T is the use of ADAM Questionnaire, a quantifying tool developed in 2006 by the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates. A positive result is indicated when an answer of “yes” to question 1 or 7, or three or more of the other questions is obtained.

  • Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?

  • Do you have a lack of energy?

  • Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?

  • Have you lost height?

  • Have you noticed a decreased “enjoyment of life”?

  • Are you sad and/or grumpy?

  • Are your erections less strong?

  • Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?

  • Are you falling asleep after dinner?

  • Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?

Complications of Low T

Low testosterone in aging males, also referred to as late-onset hypogonadism or andropause is linked to several complications. The condition is associated with irritability, water retention, decreased sexual function, osteoporosis, and an even higher risk of heart disease and prostate cancer.
