Ageing is a natural part of life, though it is common for men to feel anxious about growing older. As you get older, it’s normal for your testosterone levels to drop, which may lead to changes in mood and bring on the onset of conditions like depression. It may lead to reduced libido and bring on feelings of anxiety.
There are many ways for you to regain your confidence and a possible outlet could be to explore Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). Let’s take a look at what’s involved in the treatment and how it can help towards building confidence and a better quality of life.
What is TRT?
TRT is a treatment that’s tailored to stop the effects of andropause, which is also known as male menopause. Also referred to as androgen therapy, TRT is used to treat low testosterone that can occur in men in their 40s and higher.
What are the benefits?
A healthy heart
Testosterone is key to a healthy heart, helping to reduce red blood cell production in the body and ensure oxygen pumps around the entire body. Low testosterone has been linked to a number of cardiovascular problems and there has been some evidence to suggest that TRT can help to promote a strong heart.
A recent study that involved 83,000 patients demonstrated that when given the right amount of testosterone, 24% were less likely to have a heart attack.
Another benefit of TRT is that it can help to improve sex drive, as testosterone is an important factor in regulating a libido.
A team of researchers wanted to study the link between TRT and sexual health and found that men who started therapy improved their scores in 10 out of 12 different measures.
The study reported an increase in an anticipation for sex, stronger erections, increased sexual activity with partners and enjoyable dreams.
Testosterone is a crucial part of maintaining durable bones. As men age, bone density decreases, and low testosterone increases the risk of weak bones.
According to data from JAMA Internal Medicine, one year of testosterone therapy treatment was shown to significantly increase the bone density in men aged 65 and older.
Improved memory skills
Another advantage to TRT is that it’s been shown to improve memory and spatial skills. According to Healthline, men with higher ratios of testosterone have a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Testosterone therapy can also help with strengthening how the mind processes thoughts, particularly in men between 34 – 70 years of age.
Helping you to build your confidence
When it comes to regaining confidence, it’s about taking it one step at a time and TRT is a viable practice for incorporating into your journey. From promoting a healthier body to protecting against memory loss, the treatment has many advantages that are worth exploring.
