Benefits of Testosterone Therapy

Testosterone therapy is meant for people who suffer from low testosterone levels and not for people who have normal levels of this hormone. That is, this therapy is for people whose testosterone level is less than 300 Nanograms per deciliter. People with low testosterone levels experience certain symptoms that make life miserable and lack fun. Some of these symptoms include; drop in sex drive (which is one of the most important gifts from nature), erectile dysfunction, low sperm count (otherwise known as infertility in men), breast enlargement or abnormal increase in body fat, loss of muscle and bone mass (a major feature that differentiates a man’s body from that of a woman), increase the risk of heart and other diseases, back pains, decreased motivation and ambition, difficulty in concentration, etc. Low testosterone levels are caused by testicular diseases, injuries, kidney and liver disease, pituitary diseases, infections, chronic diseases like HIV/AIDS, and type 2- diabetes, obesity, hormonal disorders, etc. These symptoms experienced when one has low testosterone levels are curable and when cured, the individual will now begin to experience certain benefits. These benefits will be discussed in this article.
These benefits can be easily guessed as most of them are the opposite of the fore mentioned symptoms. Some of them include:
  • Increased sex drive
  • Reduction in body fat
  • Improved muscle and bone mass
  • Improved erectile function
  • Improved mood
  • Increased strength and energy
  • Improved brain function and reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Increased attractiveness to women

It is worthy noting that testosterone treatments come with some side effects but its benefits outweighs the side effects. Some of these side effects include; testicular shrinkage, increase prostrate growth, increase breast size in some men, increase red blood cell count, acne, sleep apnea, swelling, etc.
