Testosterone Replacement Therapy Part One

Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone Replacement Therapy, For some men Arimidex is not enough to combat andropause, and they may require some other method of increasing testosterone. Testosterone has been fasely accused of being a dangerous anabolic steroid that causes overly aggressive behavior, and only recently has testosterone replacement or augmentation therapy become more widely accepted.

Until recently, doctors across the country have been extremely reluctant to prescribe testosterone for anyone except those suffering from a severely debilitative condition, anemia, or other serious disease.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy, In the past, on the rare occasion when testosterone was prescribed, the therapy was incredibly inconvenient and required weekly injections. In addition, testosterone injections often produced either wildly fluctuating testosterone levels or very high levels, which caused natural testosterone production to shut down almost completely.

Men on this old from of testosterone replacement therapy often were various pills that contained testosterone or testosterone-like synthetic hormones that were often toxic to the liver and heart and only mildly effective at restoring youthful testosterone levels. by perdita di peso

Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Fortunately for the andropausal men out there, the FDA has recently approved Androgel, a testosterone gel that can simply be rubbed on the skin every morning. No injections are required, and you don’t have to take any pills.

Androgel is very convenient to use, and studies have shown it to be extremely effective at boosting and maintaining testosterone levels without the likelihood of shutting down the body’s testosterone production or causing liver toxicity. Androgel is remarkably effective for promoting success in men’s diet and exercise program, helping them both lose fat and aging muscle. Many men also experience a variety of other positive effects, such as increased energy, s*x drive, erectile function, and improved mood.

Unlike Arimidex, Androgel is often covered by health insurance if a medical deficiency is testosterone can be established. The decision to use Arimidex, Androgel, or both is a personal choice that depends on my patients medical profiles and lifestyle desires.

Other Treatments For Testosterone Replacement Therapy

The over-the-counter prohormone supplements mentioned in article 4 can be used in cycles during andropause to get brief “pulses” of testosterone before s*x or exercise. In particular, 100 to 200 milligrams of oral Androdiol (4-androstenediol) pills or 25 milligrams of sublingual Androdiol two or three times a week can give andropausal men an extra boost. It is also very important that andropausal men get enough zinc in their diets or take a multimineral with adequate zinc , as it plays an important role in preventing the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.

Human growth hormone (hGH) can be a powerful weapon against aging and andropause for a select few men. When combined with testosterone, hGH can have even more potent effects, but it requires expensive and inconvenient daily injections. Until more practical options are available, this therapy should be considered only for men with actual hGH deficiencies.
