What Is TRT In The UK?
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.
TRT is a highly specialised process that’s unique to every individual and there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
What Is Testosterone?
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 Health Risks
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 Dr to get the best advice on the right testosterone treatment for you.
