Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Well men get the most out of life and have more energy
Are you feeling run-down, irritable, and anxious? Are you off sex and desperate to get your ‘mojo’ back? If so, you could be suffering from a lack of testosterone, now officially known as Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome (TDS). Fortunately, WellMan’s courses of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can help.
The WellMan Clinic offers a range of men’s health services in a friendly, confidential environment. Based in Harley Street and with over 25 years of experience, we are the leading centre for testosterone replacement therapy in London.
What is TRT?
Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT aims to supplement a low testosterone level (hypogonadism) sufficient to restore normal function without creating adverse reactions.
(See Hypogonadism for more info)
If you have an abnormally low testosterone level, your energy levels decrease which may mean you feel you are underperforming both at work and in your personal life.
Causes & Symptoms of Low Testosterone
Male testosterone begins to decline in a linear trajectory from around the age of 30.
Obesity, underlying medical conditions and even injury to the testicles can all contribute to a dramatic fall in testosterone and sperm production. This can result in erectile dysfunction and attendant symptoms, along with infertility.
The symptoms of low testosterone are numerous, but significant red flags include loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, increased sweating, depression and anxiety, poor concentration and weight gain.
Low testosterone can have potentially devastating effects on your relationship and career, and can even lower your life expectancy.
Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Men undergoing TRT report:
- An increase in sexual desire
- Improved ability to achieve and maintain erections
- Feelings of vitality and vigour
The treatment also increases muscle mass and strength, cuts body fat and improves mood and cognitive function, boosting self-esteem. In the long-term, TRT can lead to increased bone density, reducing the risk of osteoporosis.
How WellMan Can Help
At WellMan we tailor our services to suit you. Our TRT screening procedure consists of two consultation sessions, lasting a total of one and a half hours. One of our experienced male doctors will take you through:
- A full clinical history of the condition
- A physical examination
- Investigations including haematology, biochemistry and hormone profiles
- Prostate screening
- Discussion of appropriate treatment options
A short preliminary consultation is also available if desired.
Treatment can begin within a few hours of your initial consultation. You only need to visit us a few times a year to keep up with your treatment plan.
