How does Testosterone Replacement Therapy work??

Updated: Dec 13, 2023

Testosterone Replacement Therapy, or TRT, is a medical treatment used to supplement or replace the body's natural production of testosterone. It is primarily used to address symptoms of low testosterone levels in men, a condition known as hypogonadism. Here's a general overview of how TRT at Sparta TRT works:

  • Diagnosis: The first step is to diagnose low testosterone levels through blood tests that measure the amount of testosterone in the bloodstream. Symptoms such as reduced libido, fatigue, decreased muscle mass, and mood changes are also considered.

  • Evaluation: Once low or low-normal testosterone with symptoms is confirmed, our healthcare provider will evaluate your overall health and any underlying conditions that could affect treatment. This may involve assessing cardiovascular health, prostate health, and any other relevant factors.

  • Treatment Options: There are 2 methods of administering testosterone at Sparta TRT: a.Injections: Testosterone can be injected twice a week. At Sparta TRT we recommend subcutaneous injections, like insulin, for increased comfort and compliance. This method provides a sustained release of the hormone. b. Pellets: Small pellets containing testosterone are implanted under the skin, usually in the flank (lower back just above the belt line). They slowly release testosterone over a period of five to six months.

  • Monitoring: After starting TRT, regular follow-up visits and blood tests are necessary to monitor testosterone levels and ensure the treatment is effective and safe. Adjustments to the dosage or delivery method may be made based on these results.

It's important to note that TRT should always be prescribed and monitored by a qualified healthcare professional. They will consider various factors, including your specific medical history, to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you. At Sparta TRT, you will find this and much more. Sparta TRT also offers Erectile Dysfunction Therapy, Weight loss Therapy, and Performance Peptide Therapy.
