About Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone is one of the most important sex hormone (otherwise known as androgens) produced in the male body. It is the hormone that is primarily involved with many of the most prominent masculine attributes and is essential for a variety of healthy bodily functions. Throughout adult life, testosterone helps maintain sex drive, the production of sperm cells, male hair patterns, muscle mass and bone mass.   Hormone levels reach their peak at age 20 and decline from that point on. When you are in your thirties and forties, your testosterone level will start to decline at 1 percent a year. This is normal and due to aging. However, the source of low testosterone for some men may be due to hypogonadism. Hypogonadism is when the body cannot produce the normal amount of testosterone for the age and health of the individual. Symptoms and Diagnosis of Low Testosterone Signs of low testosterone in men may include decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction (ED), lowered sperm count or increased breast size. Men also may have symptoms similar to those seen during menopause in women – hot flashes, increased irritability, inability to concentrate and depression. Physical and/or emotional symptoms may suggest a medical problem. Therefore a detailed history and physical examination, coupled with thorough laboratory analysis is necessary to help determine what may be wrong with you, and what treatments may be best suited for your condition. If you are ready for better energy and libido, improved mental clarity and an overall sense of well-being , call our functional medicine clinic, Restore Health Center, at 970-278-0900 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Howton. He will assess your health and develop a plan that will help you regain control of your life.

Benefits Testosterone Replacement Therapy


Testosterone is responsible for increased muscle mass. For men with low testosterone, studies show that treatment can decrease fat mass and increase muscle size and strength.


Studies show that testosterone therapy can benefit your sexual health and performance. Older men need more testosterone for libido and erectile function. However, ED may also be due to other conditions and medications.


Research shows that men with higher ratios of total testosterone have a reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s disease. There’s also evidence for a strong correlation between testosterone and thinking abilities such as verbal memory and faster processing speed.


Bone density decreases as men age and testosterone levels drop. This raises the risk of weak bones and osteoporosis. Strong bones help support your muscles and internal organs, which can boost athletic performance.


Men with hypogonadism reported improved mood and well-being, and reduced fatigue and irritability. Research suggests that Testosterone Replacement Therapy may also be an effective anti-depressant treatment.


Testosterone helps red blood cell production through the bone marrow. Low testosterone levels are linked to a variety of cardiovascular risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the health risks of LOW testosterone?

Typically you feel tired, you don’t have the energy to do things, and you don’t feel like yourself. As bad as those are, Low T can also come with serious health risks that can reduce your quality of life in the future:

  • Anemia – Men over age 65 with low testosterone are at a higher risk for anemia.
  • Cardiovascular Disease – The risk for high blood pressure, arterials stiffness and other cardiovascular related illnesses greatly increases with Low T.
  • Diabetes – Men with Low T are more apt to develop diabetes later on.
  • Increased Body Fat – Low T increases body fat and increased body fat can lower men’s T.


How is Testosterone administered?

Testosterone is administered via weekly intramuscular injections  pellet insertions every 5-6 months.   Follow up blood tests are carried out once every six months once the initial phase is complete, or as and when necessary, depending upon your response to treatment.

When will I feel the effects of TRT?

The length of time it takes to feel the effects of TRT will depend on your hormone levels when you started treatment and your lifestyle. Most patients begin to notice improvement within the first 3 weeks. The longer you undergo treatment and remain consistent, the better your results. It will take a few months for your hormones to balance out. When they do find equilibrium you will be able to sleep better, think clearly, have the energy to get about your day and enjoy a healthy sex life.

testosterone replacement therapy

I was tired, lacked motivation and had slowly lost interest in the things that I enjoyed. Because my libido was still there I assumed that I did not have any problems with testosterone. A business partner that sees Dr. Howton encouraged me to go to Restore Health for an evaluation. Dr. Howton listened and spent the time to know me and understand my goals and perspective. When he walked me through my lab results we found that my testosterone was sub-optimal (even though I was in the normal range) and we decided to address along with the other issues we identified.

Within two weeks my energy was up, my outlook on life had improved dramatically and I was more engaged both at work and at home. I think that things had changed so gradually and I had not realized how much better I could feel until things changed! Three months after starting on testosterone replacement my percentage body fat had decreased from 26 to 19 percent. My cholesterol levels are improved and my sugar went from pre-diabetic levels to normal. My wife feels like she has her husband back and I can’t wait to see how much better things are at my six month re-check. Thank you Dr. Howton & Restore Health.
