Low testosterone does more to a man than take away his sex drive. Hypogonadism can cause a decline in workplace productivity, quality of life, and health. A man may experience depression, weight gain, forgetfulness, insomnia, and find himself at risk for potentially debilitating health conditions. These are some of the reasons why Depo-Testosterone results are crucial to understand. In this review, we look at how Depo-Testosterone treatment benefits men with Low T. We will also hear from some of our clients as to their results, as well as provide an estimated timeline of benefits.
Depo-Testosterone reviews are subjective, as seen through the eyes of the men who receive this treatment. It may seem surprising at first that their stories vary considerably. Testosterone is involved in many bodily functions, including:
- Libido and sexual functions
- Insulin and glucose regulation
- Red blood cell production
- Brain performance
- Cholesterol and triglyceride regulation
- Heart health
- Hair growth
- Emotional stability
- Muscle and bone structural integrity
That is why Low T symptoms may differ from one man to the next. While one person may suffer from low sex drive, impaired erectile functions, and fatigue, another may feel depressed, isolated, and experience forgetfulness and cognitive decline. Yet another man may gain weight, lose muscle mass, and have reduced bone density. As a result, how they view the onset of benefits may also vary.
Treatment with Depo-Testosterone is a complex therapy designed based on what each man requires. Body composition, age, health, and level of deficiency all factor into the dosing decision. Whether you receive a 100 mg or 200 mg vial, the treatment prescribed to you by the doctor is what your body requires.
Benefits of Depo-Testosterone
Depo-Testosterone is an intramuscular injection administered at home every two weeks. It is the brand name version of testosterone cypionate produced by Pfizer. Once delivered to the body (typically the thigh or gluteal muscle), the medication slowly enters the bloodstream, where it travels to the many androgen receptor cells on tissues and in the brain. Except for supporting sperm cell maturation, Depo-Testosterone does everything else that endogenous testosterone does in the body.
For those men who are concerned over low sperm cell count or infertility, discuss this fact with the hormone specialist before starting testosterone therapy. Treatments such as HCG and clomiphene can help improve testosterone production in the testes to support spermatogenesis.
Before we look at our clients’ Depo-Testosterone reviews below, we want to discuss why maintaining healthy testosterone levels are crucial at any age. In the previous section, we talked about the many functions that testosterone influences. If testosterone levels decline, it can increase the risk of developing medical conditions that include:
- Insulin resistance
- Metabolic syndrome
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease
- Heart attack
- High LDL and total cholesterol and triglyceride levels
The list is long – and it is not complete. Low testosterone can significantly alter a person’s quality of life and even independence. Some of the most desirable Depo-Testosterone results include:
- Stronger bones and muscles
- Healthier brain and heart functions
- Weight loss
- Better sex
- Improved sleep
- More energy
- Happier mood
Reviews and Results of Our Patients
I was wise enough to contact your clinic when my body started to decline. In the past, I viewed myself as virile, healthy, and strong. So, when I began to lose interest in sex, get sick often, gain weight, and not feel like myself, I figured it might be hormonal. After researching hormone clinics online, I decided to call a few with some questions. The medical advisor I spoke to at your location had the best answers and genuinely seemed to take an interest in my health and situation. That is why I decided to follow through with the diagnostic testing, and I am glad I did. It didn’t take long for my Depo-Testosterone results to become evident to me and everyone around me. I was happier, stronger, and healthier again. Best of all, my wife says our sex life is better than it was when we were young. By the way, she says thank you for the testosterone cream – she went through the testing along with me, and we both had low testosterone. Our lives couldn’t be better.
Cardiovascular disease runs in my family – so does type 2 diabetes. At 52, I started to get worried about my future and decided to do some research online. I had no idea that low testosterone and other hormones could influence these conditions, so I figured I should get a blood test. When my primary care physician said I was worried about nothing, I decided to call your clinic for a free consultation. I just want to say thank you for providing free, confidential phone consultations. It made such a difference to be able to speak with someone knowledgeable without feeling rushed. I went for my blood test the next morning and stopped at a walk-in clinic during my lunch hour for a physical exam. I didn’t even want to call my doctor after his previous response. After my consultation, I was not surprised to find out I had Low T. After all, we discovered I had multiple symptoms of testosterone deficiency, such as low sex drive, high cholesterol, insomnia, and weight gain. It has been three months since I started my Depo-Testosterone injections, and I already see quite a difference. I am hopeful that this treatment will help reduce my risk of developing those other conditions.
