What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy, TRT, is used to treat hypogonadism in men with low levels of testosterone in the blood. Some typical symptoms of testosterone deficiency are the lack of body hair or excessive breast growth. This condition occurs when a man’s testes are not functioning properly and fail to produce enough testosterone. This could be due to the hypothalamus or pituitary gland dysfunction. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands produce hormones responsible for  stimulating testosterone production in the testes. 

Testosterone replacement therapy involves injecting testosterone to increase the concentration in the patient’s body to normal levels. The treatments need to be repeated. The quantity and frequency of the treatments will vary, depending on the individual.
