People searching for testosterone therapy in Houston often have many questions when they first contact us at RenewFX Health. Testosterone replacement therapy has many benefits for both men and women when managed correctly. Finding a testosterone specialist that you can trust to protect your health and manage you correctly is your first mission and it should be. When it comes to the evaluation and treatment of low testosterone also known as Low T, it’s important that your testosterone therapy specialist takes a comprehensive approach to evaluating and correcting hormone deficiency and hormone imbalance. Low testosterone often signals the patient and the testosterone specialist with a number of symptoms that often include low sex drive, fatigue, reduced energy, reduced endurance and strength, depression, erectile dysfunction, increased body fat and loss of muscle mass.
It’s easy to see why testosterone therapy has become so popular and mainstream today. The remarkably rewarding component to testosterone therapy is this…once your Low T symptoms are addressed properly, you almost immediately begin to feel and see the results in a matter of weeks. Your sex drive comes back, your energy comes back, you will enjoy a renewed level of enthusiasm and motivation to exercise and participate in physical activities once again. And in a matter of 4-6 weeks, both yourself and others will begin to really see positive change. Your muscle mass and muscle tone begins to improve, your body fat begins to drop, and your confidence returns. It’s just amazing to see the difference in people’s personalities. You will find yourself to be happier, more enthusiastic and generally excited by a newly found zest for life that was once missing.
As your testosterone therapy begins to return you to optimized health, you will find that people will also notice these positive changes. Don’t be surprised when people begin asking you, “What’s different about you? Have you lost weight? You seem happier.” You walk taller with more confidence. You begin to once again take charge of your life again. And It goes without saying that your spouse or “significant other” will notice the changes in the bedroom as well. Your sex drive, enthusiasm and performance in the bedroom comes alive…which will often lead your partner to eventually ask you, “what can they do for me…I need it too!”. Those are typical and true stories that we hear every day.

Cardiovascular Health: Energy, Recovery and Endurance
Testosterone contributes to improved red blood cell production in the bone marrow. Red blood cells carry oxygen from your lungs to the tissues throughout your body. Optimized red blood cells makes things easier for your heart, as oxygen reaches the body with more efficiently, thus providing increased energy, endurance and recovery. This is why people who live in higher elevations have higher red blood cell counts due to less available oxygen. Similarly, performance athletes often train at higher elevations, which have less available oxygen, to increase red blood counts naturally which in turn increases energy, recovery and endurance.
Increased muscle mass, Lower body fat:
Testosterone therapy brings you back to the optimized levels of your youthful peak years when you were your best. Men with low testosterone when treated with testosterone therapy will often experience an increase in muscle size, strength and a decrease in body fat. Typically, these benefits are best achieved when combining testosterone therapy with strength training and regular exercise.
Low testosterone often contributes to lower bone density and osteoporosis as men age. Optimizing testosterone levels back to their youthful levels, reverses this decline, improving bone density and bone strength, especially in the hip and spinal regions according clinical trials.
Improved memory and Verbal Processing:
Research has shown that men with higher testosterone ratios have a lower incidence of Alzheimer’s disease. There is also a strong correlation between optimized testosterone levels and improved memory and speech processing speeds.
Improved Sex Drive / Libido:
Testosterone is closely connected to sex drive and libido. Optimized testosterone levels contribute to higher sex drive and arousal in both men and women. As men age, studies have shown that testosterone therapy can benefit sexual health and performance.
Improved Mood / Anti-Depressant
Low testosterone often results in a diminished quality of life which can often lead to mood swings, irritability and depression. Men with hypogonadism, who are receive testosterone therapy, often experience improved mood and less irritability. Research has shown that testosterone therapy may also be an effective treatment to guard against depression, functioning as an effective anti-depressant.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are “normal” levels of testosterone?
Men and women have variable levels of testosterone which decline as they age, often dropping by over 50% as people age beyond their 40’s. Some doctors will tell their patients that these lower levels are “normal” for their age. Well, feeling “normal for age 40 or 50 plus” isn’t necessarily what people want to accept due a wide range of symptoms associated with these lower levels of testosterone. The reality is that it’s about how you feel and the symptoms that you’re experiencing as you age. We don’t treat lab tests, we treat the patient. It is our goal to optimize your testosterone levels to a medically acceptable range which restores your health and vitality back to your peak years while eliminating the symptoms related to low testosterone levels.
What are the risks associated with testosterone therapy?
As with any medication or medical procedures, there are always risks. Our testosterone specialist physicians take great care to medically manage and monitor each patient to ensure that all hormonal levels are maintained in proper balance to ensure optimum health and minimize any potential risks.
What are the potential side effects of testosterone therapy?
When testosterone therapy is medically managed and monitored by a testosterone specialist physician, you should not experience side effects. Our specialized physicians proactively monitor our patients during the course of their therapies to ensure optimal results without potential side effects. Side effects associated with poorly managed or unmanaged testosterone usage, usually without a physician’s oversight, may include fluid retention and skin reactions due to highly elevated levels of testosterone and / or highly elevated estrogen levels.
What is Hypogonadism?
Hypogonadism, in men, is a medical term used to describe the condition of low testosterone levels and production as well as lower sperm production.
