Increased longevity among the population increases the number of men with late onset hypogonadism. It’s a common condition, but often goes undertreated and underdiagnosed. The indication of testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) treatment requires the presence of low testosterone levels, and symptoms and signs of hypogonadism.
Although controversy remains regarding indications for testosterone supplementation in aging men, patients in the office who are currently treated by Dr. Bellman have shown consistent wide range of benefits that include improvement in libido and sexual function, bone density, muscle mass, body composition, mood, and overall improved quality of life.
Perhaps the most controversial area is the issue of risk, especially possible stimulation of prostate cancer by testosterone, even though no substantial evidence to support this risk exists.
As a patient, discussing alongside a urologist or specialist is ideal to discuss the best options and choices to best suit your profile needs.
