A reduced level of testosterone production, or hypogonadism, may not always require treatment.
At Omniya, our practitioners will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). This will not only be based on your test results, but also on whether there are symptoms that correspond to these results.
If you are a suitable candidate for TRT, whilst desired results may be achieved, it is important to note some of the side effects, which will be discussed thoroughly during your consultation.
Some of the side effects include oily skin, fluid retention, shrinking testicles and a decrease in sperm production.
Currently, the only way to confirm low, or reduced testosterone levels is by carrying out blood tests. These tests will typically include (but is not limited to) Testosterone (primary male sex hormone), Free Testosterone, DHEA Sulphate, FSH, Full Blood Count, SHBG, Vitamin D, and PSA. The exact blood tests to be performed will be based on a variety of factors, including your consultation, age and symptoms.
This is a simple but crucial process, as tests will be performed to manage and maintain your health and see if your quality for TRT. It’s important that these tests are carried out at the appropriate time of day and if you’re taking medication this must be discussed with your TRT doctor.
There is no denying that getting older can be difficult to come to terms with. Not only do a lot of people fear ageing but there are then the unwanted symptoms that often come with this.
For men, this can mean loss of strength and muscle mass, low sex drive, depression, a change in attitude, fatigue and low energy levels, as well as loss of concentration.
As we age, our bodies (for men, in their testicles) naturally produce less testosterone. It is assumed that on average, a male’s testosterone levels reduce by approximately 1-2% in a period that can start from your 20s, 30s or 40s.
We want to help you keep your body and mind in the best condition possible and that’s why we provide personalised TRT services.
The main benefit of TRT is that it will help to lower and even reverse the symptoms that are associated with getting older. A lot of people have reported feeling more vigorous and younger after going through the treatment.
All of the symptoms that have been mentioned can cause a person to feel down and depressed, and so it is our goal to help you to enjoy life again.On its own, with an unhealthy lifestyle, TRT is counterproductive. It is important that you consider treatment in conjunction with an existing or intended good level of lifestyle. In order to help you, you must also start to help yourself.
Some benefits include: Reduction in fat build-up and lean muscle production, increased muscle mass, improved mental clarity, increased confidence, improved sleep, higher libido (sex drive), reduced fatigue, improved focus and stronger erections.
When you book an appointment at Omniya Clinic, the first step is to have a full initial TRT consultation. This is important so that we can get to know you, your symptoms, and your medical history and then we’ll be able to provide you with the best possible treatment.
We will check your blood levels by conducting tests to monitor your baseline levels, which we will send to one of our laboratories to be analysed.
Once the test results come back, your doctor will use these alongside your medical history and symptoms. At this stage, it will be advised if you are a suitable candidate for TRT.
Your doctor will monitor your symptoms and blood levels to ensure adjustments can be made if required.
