Both male and female bodies produce testosterone, although much more of the hormone is produced by men. Testosterone plays a vital part in everyday lives, giving men the energy and strength to work, and to have successful sexual relationships.
Testosterone keeps the sperm count high in men, thus ensuring that the human race continues. In young men the testosterone levels are high, and this accounts for boundless energy that are normally seen in men in their 20’s.
By the age of 30, however, men start to lose 1% of natural testosterone each year, perhaps even more. Diminished levels appear in very subtle forms, often mistaken for ‘getting older’.
Many problems which men have are attributed to the fact that they are approaching middle age. Unfortunately, life does not slow down, with pressures of daily living requiring men to be both mentally and physically strong.
It is often the case that a man will not want to seek medical advice from his doctor for things which he considers insignificant, such as disturbed sleep patterns. Neither do most men want to discuss sexual dysfunction. It is far easier to attribute minor issues to the ageing process. The real culprit however, is more than likely low testosterone levels.
While most signs of low testosterone levels may be difficult to spot there are some which should give an indication of the root of trouble.
Signs of low testosterone
The main sign for low testosterone is erectile dysfunction, or low sex drive. This is also the most embarrassing topic to discuss with your doctor, and one that many men will avoid. Unfortunately, low testosterone does not ‘go away by itself’. The good news is that something can be done to help!
- Bad sleeping patterns or disturbed sleep
- Constant fatigue and tiredness
- Loss of muscle mass
- Noticeable drop in strength and endurance
- Inability to concentrate
- Lower energy levels
- Mood swings and changes
Men should take heart because all is not lost. There are treatments that can restore testosterone levels. There are many benefits to this, not least that sexual inactivity is reversed.

How does TRT work?
A simple blood test is all it takes to ensure that you qualify for TRT. Once it has been ascertained that you qualify for TRT you will meet with a personal consultant to further talk about the treatment.
This is the time to take out your list of questions – all those that you have been too embarrassed to ask, and those that you your mind set at rest over. How long does it take, how many sessions, how soon can I start? All of these will be answered for you.
Is TRT safe?
Most men ask this question first. Safety is the first priority at TRT San Diego.
It is important to use 100% bio-identical hormones because they are accepted by the body. Synthetic hormones may be rejected as the body knows that they are not natural. With 100% bio-identical hormones there is little chance of the body rejecting them. The replacement works naturally and consistently every time.
