Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women and is secreted by the adrenal glands, testes, and ovaries. Testosterone protects against cardiovascular disease, hypertension, body fat, and arthritis and has many additional benefits. Testosterone also prolongs the quality of life by decreasing the diseases of aging, as does estrogen in the female. Testosterone is important for everyone making supplementation absolutely recommended for both men and women which is why Preventive Medicine Centers in Palm Springs, CA offers TRT therapy, which is a hormone replacement therapy option for men and women. Low testosterone can be problematic in many ways so let's get ahead of the problem!
Menopause in females is a widely discussed, well-studied phenomenon, yet its equivalent in males – andropause – is virtually ignored. They are very similar experiences. Both typically occur from age 40 on and are caused by having low t or low testosterone. Both can be accompanied by fatigue, depression, irritability, aches, and pains, and many other issues.
Typically, when hormones in men are discussed in Palm Springs, it is usually about the abuse among athletes, which has given rise to the perception that all testosterone is dangerous. Add to that the unfounded fear that testosterone causes prostate cancer, and the misunderstanding escalates. Tackling low testosterone in a natural, healthy way is what our Palm Springs team specializes in. Don't let misinformation turn you away from a healthy option as you work through Andropause or other issues related to low testosterone.
Testosterone replacement therapy [TRT] in Palm Springs, done with bio-identical testosterone in physiologic doses, is not only safe but also protective. Testosterone has been shown to prevent osteoporosis, protect against cardiovascular disease, increase energy, fight impotence, and improve mood. A recently published study showed that men with higher testosterone levels live longer. Our TRT therapy services focus on hormone replacement therapy for men and women as a way to combat low t and ultimately protect our Palm Springs patients from further discomfort or bigger health issues.
Multiple medical studies have proven that testosterone does not cause prostate cancer. Interestingly, men in Palm Springs typically get prostate cancer when they are older, and testosterone levels are naturally at their lowest. In fact, low T is associated with more aggressive tumors. No study has shown that supplementing with testosterone in Palm Springs increases your chances of getting prostate cancer.
Men who receive testosterone replacement therapy or TRT in Palm Springs typically report they feel sexier, stronger, and healthier.
