Could Hormone Replacement Be The Fountain of Youth?
Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
Dr. Ted Mimlitz, CEO and Co-founder of Men’s’ Medical Institute as well as the Medical Director of Maternity Services at DePaul University, believes that testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) should be a more widely practiced low testosterone treatment option for men.
“Testosterone replacement therapy should be more widely practiced because it works,” Dr. Mimlitz told Medical Daily. “Once a man hits the age of 30, his testosterone levels begin to decrease each year by one or two percent.”
Many of his patients have seen an increase in their energy, mood and concentration. “Increasing a man’s testosterone levels has been shown to prevent heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis and mortal diabetes,” said Dr Mimlitz.
Most men aren’t aware of their declining testosterone because it happens slowly over many years.
The simple blood test to determine your testosterone can be done by your primary care doctor or an endocrinologist. Normal results vary. Factors such as age and other health related issues come into play, but on average the levels should be around 300-1000.
