What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

Just like women go through menopause, men go through andropause.

Men experience a more gradual loss of hormones, mostly testosterone. Starting in their 30’s, testosterone in men begins to decline at a rate of around 1% each year, and by the time they reach their 40’s or 50’s, hormone production can drop further. The signs of andropause include low sex drive, muscle loss, weight gain, sleep problems, irritability, hair loss, erectile dysfunction, memory loss, urinary problems and more. Men often experience some of the following SYMPTOMS OF LOW TESTOSTERONE:

  • Low energy
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Weight gain/increased belly fat
  • Muscle loss
  • Insomnia
  • Hair loss
  • Memory loss
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Loss of motivation
  • Loss of confidence
  • Decreased enjoyment of life

Are there alternatives to Testosterone Therapy?

Your Natural Options

There are non-hormonal strategies that have been found to increase testosterone production. I will explore these options with you, but some of them are:

  • Maintaining your ideal weight — Increased BMI and obesity have been linked to decreased testosterone levels, and losing weight can help bring them back up.
  • Regular exercise — A sedentary lifestyle can reduce testosterone production, but regular muscle use (such as lifting weights) and movement can restore normal levels.
  • Getting enough sleep — Inadequate sleep can upset your hormones. But making sure you get seven to eight hours of sleep every night can get them back in balance.

Additional Reading

  • Vitamin D and Zinc — Studies suggest increased vitamin D intake can increase testosterone, and zinc can help diminish symptoms associated with hypogonadism.
  • Caffeine — Similarly, reasonable caffeine intake can promote testosterone production.
  • Eating more nuts and beans — One study demonstrated a link between D-aspartic acid and the increased production of testosterone.

I always prefer natural remedies for the challenges my patients face, so I will be happy to guide you through any of these methods if we feel like they may be right for you.
