Can I benefit from Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)?

Men start treatment with Mosaic Medicine Men’s Health & Testosterone for many reasons. Some of the most common symptoms we encounter are decreased libido, weaker erections, decreased energy, impaired concentration, and chronic fatigue. We recommend you start with a simple screening questionnaire called the ADAM (Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male). You will find the Questionnaire below.

Why is Testosterone & Men’s Health So Popular?

Men want to feel like men. Insurance companies and the healthcare industry have set an arbitrary cutoff of 300ng/dL or lower as the cutoff for Testosterone Replacement Therapy being covered by insurance. As recently as 1989, the average male Total Testosterone level was 501ng/dL, compared with 391ng/dL in 2004. These averages are calculated Testosterone levels across the age spectrum. While a 300ng/dL may not cause symptoms in a 75 year-old, the very same level is highly likely to cause negative symptoms in the 35 year-old.

The average male testosterone level continues to decline. Scientists have yet to determine all of the causes. Some factors include the rise in obesity, the loss of muscle mass, the decrease in smoking, and pharmaceutical usage. Nonetheless, men are feeling symptoms of Testosterone deficiency at much younger ages.
