Low Testosterone

Is Low Testosterone preventing you from living your best life? Call us for a hormonal reboot.

Testosterones is Declining

Testosterone on blackboard

The problem is that, as you age, natural testosterone levels decline.
And that decline can be significant, leaving you feeling less powerful, less energetic, and less confident. Like you’re just not yourself.

Men have around 10-20 times the amount of testosterone as women, which is why testosterone replacement treatments & therapies are so often targeted at men. When testosterone levels drop (usually 1-2% per year after the age of 40, with around an 80% drop by the time you are 80), the effect can be psychologically damaging, leading to a drop in confidence, erectile dysfunction, a lower sperm count, a loss of libido, reduced bone mass, less confidence, hair loss, slower gains in the gym, more difficulty gaining muscle, lower metabolism and faster fat gain, and a dampened libido. Even our brain function, memory, quality of sleep, and overall ‘can-do attitude are tied intimately to testosterone levels, leaving some men feeling adrift & a shadow of their former selves when testosterone levels fall.

Is it really that hormones decrease with age…. or IS IT THAT YOU AGE as your hormones decrease? You get to decide! ~Dr. Lisbeth Roy

Age-Related Testosterone Decline: Should I Just Accept it?

Many people accept this age-related drop in testosterone as a natural, yet annoying (and often debilitating) consequence of the aging process. For a lot of men, they may feel like lack of libido and erectile dysfunction might simply be an unavoidable consequence of aging.

It does not have to be inevitable. Testosterone therapy, for example, can quickly reverse erectile dysfunction by stimulating the body’s production of nitric oxide (crucial in achieving and sustaining an erection). Enjoying a powered-up libido and the erectile strength and stamina that you enjoyed in your 20’s or 30‘s is a very real consequence of testosterone therapy, because you are simply targeting and restoring basic physiologic reactions that may have diminished with age. Low testosterone and its effects are not duty-bound consequences of the aging process that you should feel destined to accept and endure! They are simply physical effects that can be restored and strengthened, leaving you feeling powerful, confident & full of energy once again.

What is a Normal Testosterone Range?

A ‘normal’ testosterone level falls within the 270-1070 ng/dL range, with an average level of 679 ng/dL. Most doctors will hesitate to prescribe TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) if your T levels fall within this range, but it is important to note that average does not always reflect your individual circumstances effectively. For example, you might be experiencing hair loss, a drop in libido, weight gain, and feelings of unhappiness. You might feel as if you simply don’t recognize yourself, yet your testosterone levels fall at the lower end of normal, so you are not offered testosterone therapy.

At the Doctors Studio, we are renowned experts in the field of wellness, peak performance, and sexual health. We know that restoring testosterone is ultimately about helping you feel like yourself again, regardless of age, and that peak health isn’t simply about attaining a ‘normal’ or ‘average’ range. It is about optimizing hormonal levels that lead to peak performance, peak health & peak happiness.

A Symphony of Hormones

At the Doctors Studio, we also don’t just consider restoring your testosterone levels. We also consider a range of hormones and hormonal effects that work in tandem with testosterone, such as estradiol (estrogen), DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), pregnenolone, and progesterone. 

Why is this important? Consider, for example, that DHEA supplementation can raise free testosterone levels, whilst estradiol is essential for modulating libido, erectile function, and spermatogenesis. When cortisol levels are reduced, pregnenolone naturally boosts testosterone levels, which can increase metabolism & weight loss (although when levels of testosterone and pregnenolone are both high, it can cause negative side-effects). Progesterone, in turn, is a testosterone precursor that also lowers levels of estrogen.

A great health practitioner will be fully knowledgeable of the complex & elegant symphony of hormones that constantly takes place within your body. Testosterone replacement therapy isn’t just about replacing testosterone, but also about understanding & monitoring this balance, leading ultimately to the safe and satisfying restoration of libido, sexual function, muscularity, and confidence. Ultimately, this “symphony” of hormones works together elegantly to output optimized health & performance, but their delicate natural balance must always be respected. As a result, we tailor your therapy to not only deliver real results but also give you true peace of mind.

Testosterone Replacement: Safe & Effective

Most of us have heard about a guy down the gym who took steroids and suffered some crazy, negative consequences. It is true that if a gym-goer abuses steroids to pack on muscle faster, he is, effectively, choosing to act as his own doctor, equipping himself with all of the drugs, but none of the medical knowledge. The likelihood of negative side-effects in that context becomes pretty obvious, pretty fast. Amongst other risks, he may experience shriveled testicles (caused by his body shutting off its own androgen response). He might even grow breasts (a condition known as gynecomastia, where excess testosterone is converted to estrogen, causing the formation of breast tissue).

These dangers stress the absolute importance of seeking out medical professionals to oversee your testosterone replacement therapy, rather than relying on self-diagnosis, or purchasing testosterone drugs over the Internet. In the hands of medical professionals, testosterone therapy not only becomes safe but also extremely effective.

The Doctors Studio, pioneers in peak performance & sexual health, possess the extensive, comprehensive medical knowledge needed to prescribe testosterone in a completely safe & effective way. As a peak performance-focused practice, we also appreciate the fact that ‘average, adequate levels of testosterone might simply not be enough; all that interests us is achieving hormone optimization for you – and not simply the maintenance of hormone levels that are ‘acceptably average’.

Can Women Benefit, Too?

Yes. Whilst women have far lower levels of testosterone than men (on average, 15-70 ng/dL, which is 10-20 times lower than males), diminished levels can still create major health issues. Low testosterone levels in women (lower than 15 ng/dL) can cause changes in breast tissue, thinner hair, bad skin, mood swings, increased body fat, loss of muscle, a dampened libido, and fertility problems. In sum, both genders can benefit!

What Benefits Can I Expect?

Effective testosterone therapy can benefit you in a myriad of ways, including:

  • More efficient fat loss
  • A faster metabolism
  • Increased lean muscle tissue
  • Easier attainment of your desired aesthetic physique
  • Enhanced sex drive
  • Better sexual performance, stamina & satisfaction
  • Better & more stable emotional mood
  • Heightened confidence & self-esteem
  • Restored energy and motivation
  • High-quality sleep
  • Improved memory, focus, and overall cognitive function
  • A stronger immune system
  • Lower risk of cancer (including prostate cancer)
  • Feeling like yourself again

A Holistic Approach

At the Doctors Studio, we take a holistic approach to your health, and we advise specific dietary, exercise, or lifestyle-based adaptations alongside hormone therapy to maximize the success of the treatment.

(for example, lifting weights, increasing protein consumption, ensuring healthy carbohydrate & healthy fat intake are adequate for optimized testosterone production)

Management of stress, the utilization of vitamin D and zinc as natural testosterone boosters, avoidance of estrogen-like compounds such as BPA or parabens, management of alcohol intake, and restoration of high-quality sleep). 

Take Control: Aging Doesn’t Have to Mean Sub-Optimal Performance

Take back control of the aging process! Ultimately, aging doesn’t mean that you should accept feeling weaker, more tired, or any less driven. Testosterone replacement therapy at the Doctors Studio allows you to restore performance, confidence & wellness to former levels in a safe & efficient way, helping you to feel like you again, & facing life with renewed vitality, energy & confidence.
