Testosterone Therapy

Adequate testosterone levels in the body are essential for healthy function of the entire body including muscle, bone, brain and the sex organs.

Signs of testosterone deficiency include low libido (interest in sex), absent morning erections, low energy levels with fatigue, marked mood swings, depression, reduced memory/cognition, poor sleep and an inability to achieve physical gain from exercise.

A full assessment is essential because in 50% of cases a cause can be identified and in one of these, there is specific treatment.

A full early morning androgen profile is required to confirm the clinical diagnosis.

Treatment options are either one of two creams applied to the body or injections. The treatment is life long and it is essential to discuss conception if you may wish to father children in the future. Testosterone replacement is safe with routine blood testing and if appropriate, can have a major improvement of your quality of life and of those around you.
