Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women. While women do produce small amounts of testosterone, males are most commonly associated with the hormone. Testosterone levels can impact a range of bodily functions, including muscle production, sperm production, libido, and more.
Testosterone levels typically begin rising in men during puberty. As men age, they will eventually begin to lose testosterone levels naturally – this typically begins around 30. As testosterone levels drop, many men experience a change in libido, muscle mass, mood, and other metrics.
One of the most notable side effects of low T levels is weight gain. There is evidence that suggests lower testosterone levels in men are linked to increased fat levels. This may be one of the many reasons that men find it harder to lose weight as they age.
Gaining weight can have a profound impact on your ability to enjoy your life. Increased fat levels are linked to heart disease, low libido, diabetes, and a host of other severe health complications. Also, an increase in weight can impact your mental health and confidence levels.
Conversely, there is also evidence to suggest that weight gain can cause drops in testosterone levels – even if the cause of the original weight gain is not due to a testosterone deficiency. Additionally, if an individual gains weight because of a testosterone deficiency, this may create a cycle where the additional weight causes further drops in T levels.
Lifting weights, maintaining a healthy diet, and avoiding alcohol and other testosterone-destroying substances is a good way to maintain strong T levels. Still, some individuals may require an extra boost, which is why many men choose to undertake testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
Using TRT Pasadena to Combat Low Testosterone Levels
If you believe that your weight gain is linked to a lack of testosterone, not all hope is lost. There are now treatments available that can help you replace testosterone and reach previous T levels. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) provides your body with a testosterone boost that can help you restore metabolic functions.
It’s important to note that this is not a one-size-fits-all cure. The reasons for your weight gain might not be due to low T levels, which is why it’s important to seek help from a medical professional before determining the underlying cause of increased fat levels.
Individuals can receive TRT Pasadena via an injection, patch, or a host of other applications. TRT must be tailor-made to an individual, as all individuals will have different testosterone replacement needs. A full medical assessment is required prior to undertaking TRT for weight loss purposes.
