Testosterone is a steroid hormone that’s mainly produced in men’s testicles. Hormones are signals that tell certain parts of the body what to do.
In men, testosterone helps:
As men get older, testosterone levels naturally decrease, which can cause undesirable effects. Low testosterone (low-T) side effects include:
These effects can also lead to poor emotional well-being in men who have trouble coping with the changes.
Some men choose to begin testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) once they are diagnosed with low T.
The purpose of TRT is to supplement the body with the testosterone it’s no longer producing on its own.
TRT could help in quite a few ways:
While the potential benefits of TRT sound great, there are also potential risks:
Testicle shrinkage and infertility are also possible side effects of TRT, but there’s good news. The Compounding Center offers a solution to help limit testicle shrinkage and infertility (link to HCG for TRT).
First, your doctor should run a blood test. This test will help your doctor diagnose low-T or another condition that could be causing your symptoms.
If your testosterone levels are indeed low, testosterone replacement therapy might be an option.
At The Compounding Center, our pharmacists compound a completely customizable TRT gel, which has several benefits for you.
Brand name products only come in a few different strengths, which means the dose might not be perfect for you.
Because we compound our TRT gel in-house, we’re able to make sure your TRT is completely personalized.
Many insurance plans like Medicare don’t cover brand name TRT medications.
You’re more likely to get a better price through TCC.
Our knowledgeable pharmacists will teach you exactly how to use testosterone gel safely.
Our gel is water-based which improves testosterone absorption through the skin. It contains no alcohol, so there’s no burning feeling or alcohol smell.
