Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is changing the health industry for men. Many men who feel drained, and exhausted and are suffering from a whole list of health issues are often told it’s just life. But in some cases, low testosterone levels could be to blame.

TRT is now easier accessible to men across the country and it can have significant positive effects on mental and physical health.

In 2020 there were 5,225 deaths by suicide in the UK. 3,925, over three-quarters of those deaths were tragically men. This statistic is a sad reality of the struggles and stigmas that men not only face in the UK but across the world.

It is not uncommon for men to be prescribed antidepressants by the GP but are we truly solving the problem at hand if we do not know the cause? There can be many root causes as to why one’s mental health is deteriorating but one often overlooked cause could be low testosterone levels.

The good news is there have been many cases of men experiencing a positive mental shift after undergoing TRT treatment. Not only can the treatment improve your mental health but there are a whole host of other benefits to your life.

Physical health has also been found to have a positive shift in a man’s life after undergoing TRT. Testosterone supports the production of red blood cells, which is required for physical exertion. In turn, this means your health and blood will be healthier. Further to this, low testosterone is a leading cause of men’s loss of bone mass. Increased testosterone has been shown to have increased spinal and hip bone density improving mobility and comfort.

The body’s natural process for building lean muscle mass is enhanced by testosterone. Studies have shown that men are able to reduce their body fat and benefit from enhanced physical activity following TRT treatment.

One of the most interesting ways  your life could change following TRT is improved brain function. In multiple studies, men have reported a better functioning memory , improved response rates, and feelings of alertness.

In summary, having balanced testosterone levels will make you feel better in both physical and mental ways. Unfortunately, you cannot just begin TRT straight away but you can begin to establish a diagnosis that could lead to TRT with a simple blood test.  

It could be you that will be experiencing life-changing benefits of TRT. If you suffer from any of the symptoms that are associated with low testosterone levels we strongly recommend getting tested. Ordering a test is super simple and we will be with you every step of the way.
