Testosterone replacement therapy is safe so long as certain conditions are met.
HealthGAINS medical experts provide safe, personalized care that prioritizes patients’ safety and may include:
- The use of medically supervised and prescribed testosterone
- Screening patients for underlying health conditions
- Providing a safe, sterile site for administering testosterone replacement therapy
- Monitoring patients closely throughout the period where treatment is being provided
At HealthGAINS, patients’ safety comes first. As long as a patient follows the instructions given by their doctor, they can rest assured that testosterone replacement therapy is safe.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy Is Safe When Performed with Care
Patients who do not choose their testosterone therapy provider wisely or obtain testosterone through illegal or non-medical sources could risk their health. There are several potential warning signs that may alert a patient to unsafe administration practices.
Some of the red flags that patients will not find at HealthGAINS include:
Not Using Prescription Testosterone
There may be risks when using certain types of testosterone—namely, testosterone that is not administered through a prescription. HealthGAINS exclusively uses testosterone issued through a prescription and administered as an injection.
There may be several options for testosterone therapy that are not issued through a prescription. Whether they are over-the-counter products or substances of unknown origins, these are not legitimate. A patient can ensure that they are receiving testosterone injections through a prescription by receiving treatment from a HealthGAINS wellness provider.
Not Properly Counseling Patients
HealthGAINS wellness providers ensure patients have the knowledge they need to make an informed decision about receiving testosterone injections.
Some of the topics that a HealthGAINS provider may go over with a patient include:
- Why HealthGAINS’ administration of testosterone replacement therapy is safe
- What results the patient may hope to see from their testosterone therapy
- How testosterone therapy injections will be applied
- How frequently the injections will be applied
- How the patient should monitor their health and results with specific respect to testosterone injections
Patients being informed about their treatment is directly connected to patient empowerment. HealthGAINS wellness providers are confident in the safety and effectiveness of testosterone therapy and will share all relevant information with patients. Any provider who cannot say this much may be cause for caution.
Injecting Testosterone without Adequate Research
No act involving human health should be done flippantly. Testosterone therapy may be effective and low-risk for a patient, but it is still necessary to have a complete understanding of a patient’s medical history before proceeding.
A HealthGAINS wellness provider will take into account all available information about a patient’s health before administering testosterone therapy.
This may include:
- Whether the patient has any current heart conditions
- Whether the patient has suffered a stroke or heart attack
- The patient’s age
- Any other health conditions that the patient currently suffers from
- Whether a patient is statistically at-risk of developing prostate cancer
Patients may not know much (or anything) about what makes testosterone replacement therapy safe. When a patient visits HealthGAINS, a wellness provider will take their detailed medical history. This goes a long way in ensuring the safety and effectiveness of testosterone replacement therapy.
When Testosterone Therapy Is Safe and Effective
Patients who choose to receive testosterone therapy injections from a HealthGAINS wellness provider may see several results. Results may vary from one patient to another, but there may be common benefits between different patients.
Low testosterone levels may produce several serious health issues, including:
- Loss of sex drive
- Depressed mood
- Weight gain
- Muscle loss
- Cognitive dysfunction
These are just a few of the reasons that contribute to falling testosterone levels in men. When a patient receives testosterone injections and begins to see results, they may not see improvements in just one area of their life; they may see benefits in all areas of their life.
Some of the potential benefits for men who undergo testosterone replacement therapy include:
- Improved sexual function
- A higher sex drive
- Larger muscles
- A greater ability to lose fat
- Better stamina and energy
- Clearer cognitive function
- Improved mental health
- A boost in one’s self-confidence and self-image
Patients may receive additional benefits from testosterone therapy.
