at Omniya Clinic in London
TRT treatment for men and women at Omniya clinic in London involves our experienced hormone doctors developing a personalised service to match your specific symptoms and needs.
In order to help achieve optimal health and wellbeing, balanced hormones are crucial, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman. This page covers the benefits of TRT for men and women.
For men, testosterone is the most important male hormone (androgen). Low testosterone levels can lead to many men experiencing symptoms of weight gain, decreased motivation, low libido, depression, and tiredness. This is known as andropause, which is commonly deemed male menopause. A common treatment is testosterone replacement therapy available at our TRT UK Clinic.
Andropause is a decline in a man’s testosterone level that is most commonly noticeable as a man reaches his late 30’s to early 40’s and has symptomatic hypogonadism. Whilst it is not widely understood, at Omniya, we know that experiencing symptoms of andropause can be difficult to manage alone.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), also referred to as androgen therapy, is primarily used to treat low or reduced testosterone levels. Testosterone levels can decline with age or as a result of a medical condition.
At our TRT UK clinic, treatment for men is designed to address symptoms that accompany a physiological and clinical decline in testosterone levels. Symptoms can include but are not limited to, depression, low libido, weight gain, limited body hair and more.
Testosterone replacement therapy is a highly specialised process that’s unique to every individual and there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
Testosterone is a hormone that is found in men and women (as well as other animals). For men, the testicles produce testosterone. In women, testosterone is produced in the ovaries, but in much smaller quantities. The production of men’s testosterone increases significantly during puberty and then starts to decline – typically in a man’s 30s or early 40’s.
Testosterone is commonly associated with libido and sperm production. However, it also impacts muscle mass, bone density and how we store our fat. A man’s testosterone level can also impact his mood and memory. It is also responsible for producing male characteristics, such as muscularity and facial hair, as well as the development of the male sex organs.
Low testosterone has been linked to increased risk to health in men according to hormone research. Conditions such as metabolic syndrome, obesity and diabetes among others have shown up in research studies when looking at the increased risks associated with low testosterone. If you are resembling symptoms of low testosterone levels, speak to a doctor to get the best advice on the right testosterone treatment for you.
varies per patient
Andropause, taken from the Greek ‘andras’ (human male) and ‘pause’ (cessation), occurs when testosterone levels start to decline. It is defined as a condition that is associated with many symptoms, including mood changes, low energy, anxiety, decreased sexual satisfaction, weight gain, depression and erectile dysfunction.
Andropause is often considered as the male version of menopause. Whilst both are associated with a decline in hormone levels (primarily oestrogen and progesterone for menopause and testosterone for men), and the symptoms are life-changing, men experience a gradual decline over a longer period than is the case for women suffering from menopause.
There are several benefits that testosterone replacement therapy can provide. These can include:
Low testosterone is a symptom of male hypogonadism: a condition where the testes do not produce enough testosterone. The condition affects almost 40% of men aged 40 and older.
The symptoms of low testosterone vary from person to person, but can include the following:
As is the case with most medication, side effects can be experienced with hormone replacement therapy, and it is important that you are aware of these before you embark on the treatment.
Of course, not everyone is going to experience these side effects, and your doctor will discuss these with you during your consultation.
Some of the minor potential side effects of TRT include increased urination, acne, and fluid retention. Some of the more severe, yet rare, potential side effects include increased number of red blood cells, infertility, decreased sperm count, increased cholesterol levels, worsening of existing sleep apnea, decreased testicle size, and breast enlargement.
It is important to get in touch with us at the earliest opportunity if you experience any of these symptoms.
No, TRT is available in many forms. While some of the different methods do include intramuscular injections (for example, Nebido and Sustanon), there are some that do not require them at all. Your doctor will discuss some of the different options that are available, and the most suitable treatments for your concerns.
Aside from (intramuscular) injections, some of the other choices include testosterone patches (transdermal), testosterone (topical) gels, lozenges, tablets, capsules and subcutaneous injections.
It is illegal to sell medication without a license and without a valid prescription. Even if easily available, it is dangerous to use without the medical supervision required.
TRT is an elective treatment that should only be considered if you are suffering from symptoms of low testosterone.
Your doctor will note your symptoms and assess these in conjunction with blood test results to ensure that you are suffering from low testosterone.
There may be alternative ways to improve your testosterone levels, and these will be discussed with you in more detail during your consultation. Improvements can be made by focusing on your diet, sleep, exercise and natural supplements.
Each individual will have a bespoke plan, based on their symptoms and the blood tests. Your testosterone therapy treatment will be specifically created for you, with costs discussed at your consultation by Dr Sohere Roked. You will be able to see the full plan designed for you.
If you are interested in TRT, please call Omniya Clinic London on 020 7584 4888 to schedule an initial consultation with Dr Roked. You will be assessed, and a plan developed to help you regain control of your life.
Yes, testosterone boosters can help to optimise and balance your hormones, restoring energy levels for many patients. However, this must be performed by a suitably qualified and trained doctor, who is able to monitor, assess and optimise your hormonal imbalances in order to improve the quality of your life. Dr Sohere Roked has received extensive training in Europe and the USA for anti-ageing medicine and is one of the leaders in the industry in the UK.
There are a number of factors at play when assessing the length of time it takes to feel the effects and benefits of TRT. These factors include your own lifestyle, your baseline (current) hormone levels when you start the treatment and the type of medication you are prescribed. Medication can include Nebido, Sustanon, Testogel, Tostran, Pregnyl/Gonasi (HCG), and each take varying times to take effect.
We typically see results experienced within 3-8 weeks, although this does vary from patient to patient. Your lifestyle will contribute to this, which your doctor will discuss with you.
In order to feel optimum benefits from TRT, it is recommended that you have a balanced and healthy lifestyle, which is supplemented with any medication that may be prescribed or administered. In general, you ought to benefit from a better sex life, with improved sleep, clarity and with more energy if you maintain consistency in the treatment plan.
