Superior T- Low Testosterone FAQ

Dr. Jerry Lewis owner of Superior T discusses low testosterone.

Transcription

Low testosterone would be considered to be below 350 nanograms per deciliter. Normal testosterone is considered to be between 350 nanograms per deciliter to 1,000 nanograms per deciliter. You also have to consider some of the different side effects, or the effects that the testosterone hormone has in the human body. For instance, somebody might be at the level of 400 but still experience decreased libido, depressive symptoms, increased weight gain, decreased energy. 

At Superior T, testosterone replacement therapy consists of intramuscular injections of exogenous testosterone to improve those symptoms and to bring somebody's blood levels within those normal limits. It enhances fat loss. It enhances mood, memory. It has a number of positive effects on the body. 

Testosterone replacement therapy has been around for quite some time. It has been proven to be safe and effective. Intramuscular injections need to be performed on a weekly to bi-weekly basis.

The way a candidate is determined for hormone replacement therapy is very simple. They will come into the office. We will perform a blood test. We'll send that to the lab for analysis. We'll have the patient back. We'll go over the various aspects of their lab results, including their testosterone level. Then depending on what their symptoms are and what their blood levels are, we'll determine whether or not that patient's an appropriate candidate.
