TRT Hormone Therapy (for men) Q & A

What is TRT hormone therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment to address a hormone imbalance called low testosterone. Low testosterone usually affects men as they age and can come from many causes, including medications, testicular injuries, and thyroid dysfunction. 


During testosterone replacement therapy, you take bioidentical or synthetic forms of testosterone to replace the hormones your body lacks. Like the natural hormone, the replacement testosterone supports your bone and muscle health. It also improves the many symptoms that can come from low testosterone. 


At PSI Medical Group, Dr. Grafton evaluates you with a physical exam and a blood test to measure your hormone levels. He can then administer TRT if you have low testosterone and monitor you regularly throughout treatment. 

Which symptoms can TRT hormone therapy alleviate?

Low testosterone can cause a wide variety of unpleasant mental and physical symptoms. You might not initially realize they come from low testosterone because they’re quite ambiguous. TRT can treat low testosterone symptoms such as:


  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Weight gain 
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Trouble concentrating


Since symptoms like these can come from many different causes, your blood test is necessary to determine if a hormone imbalance is an underlying issue. If you have these symptoms without a hormone imbalance, Dr. Grafton continues to investigate and may provide other treatments. 

What should I expect during TRT hormone therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy at PSI Medical Group usually involves placing bioidentical testosterone pellets beneath your skin. Dr. Grafton inserts the pellet, which continuously provides you with a steady dose of testosterone thereafter. Testosterone can come in other forms like patches, pills, or injections. 


Bioidentical hormones come from natural, plant-based sources such as cactus or soy plants, but they’re structurally identical to your body's hormones. 


To mitigate the risk of TRT side effects, Dr. Grafton monitors you closely and gives you the lowest possible hormone dose to effectively reduce your symptoms. You should also call PSI Medical Group if you have any questions or concerns while taking TRT hormone therapy.
