You’ve probably heard ads for men who have “low T.” That’s referring to low testosterone levels, which can cause a number of issues. It’s real, and it’s important.

The thing is, both men and women need testosterone for hormonal balance. An imbalance that causes a lack of testosterone affects both the health and quality of life for patients, male or female.

At Regain Functional Medicine + Aesthetics, we’ve studied the science of hormone balance and can help you enjoy the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy so that you can live your best life every day. We’ll address the root cause of your illness and utilize safe, scientifically proven treatments that deliver results based on your needs.

5 Benefits Which Fit You to a T

These 5 benefits of testosterone replacement therapy work for both sexes.

1. Improve Weight Stabilization/Loss

When testosterone levels decline, our bodies have a tendency to add more midline weight gain.
It’s a bit of a “first this, then that” order:

  1. Low-T causes a decline in muscle mass.
  2. Smaller muscle mass burns fewer calories.
  3. Burning fewer calories lowers metabolism.
  4. A sluggish metabolism causes weight gain.

Getting your testosterone levels back up to expected levels helps you build more lean muscle mass when you exercise, powering up your metabolism. For women, the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy are usually combined with general BHRT for best results.

2. Energize Your Day

Testosterone regulates energy levels and vitality in both men and women. It’s more apparent in men when T levels become low, as their bodies naturally make more testosterone. However, women’s ovaries also produce testosterone.

When T levels dip, both men and women experience lethargy and fatigue, often accompanied by a downward mood spiral. At Regain, our hormone experts will discuss your symptoms, provide testing as necessary, and be able to prescribe the just-right amount of testosterone for your hormone replacement therapy.

Feel the energy and drive again—to enjoy activities and thrive again.

3. Get Your Groove Back

Testosterone is a sex hormone. As such, it provides support for sexual desire and sexual function. For men, increasing those testosterone levels can lead to improvements in erectile dysfunction as well as libido. For women, the smaller doses help improve energy, mood, and sexual desire.

Keep in mind that there is no “magic medicine” for desire. Other aspects of a relationship with others, and with your own self-image, will need to be understood along with your T levels. As functional medicine providers, your Regain practitioners can help you revive desire and improve satisfaction for you and your partner.

4. Love Life More

Testosterone plays an important role in regulating mood and emotional well-being in both men and women.

As one of the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy, TRT can help improve symptoms such as depression, mood swings, and irritability, especially when used in conjunction with other hormones to regain functional balance at a cellular level.

5. Stay Stronger Longer

Testosterone supports the formation of lean muscle mass. It also improves bone density, so that the framework of your body increases in strength and durability.

This not only helps improve body contouring efforts, it reduces the risk of osteoporosis and/or bone fractures. This is especially important for the aging process.
