Testosterone treatment is also known as TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) or Testosterone Optimization Therapy.

The most abundant male sex hormone, Testosterone is responsible for:

Low levels of testosterone can be related to decreased function of the testicles (primary hypogonadism) or impaired hormonal pathways in the brain (secondary hypogonadism). Testosterone optimization is the beginning of the journey towards improved male health. In order to understand the complex balance of hormones that provide men with energy, performance, and sexual health, we must first take a deep-dive into our anatomy and biochemistry.
