Low T, or low testosterone is a typical age related condition that many men experience. Treatment will be required, and one such solution is physician prescribed testosterone cream or gel which will be the focus of this blog post. Continue reading.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a “sex hormone” which has the duty of growing male sexual organs, and other masculine features like facial hair. Testosterone is also responsible for muscle growth. When the body stops producing enough of this hormone, men will experience a fall in their sex drive and energy, resulting in deteriorating health generally associated with aging.
How Does Testosterone Cream Help?
Testosterone cream, like other hormone medications, helps the body to maintain its balance of testosterone which becomes weak due to various reasons. Using this cream is simple since it is a topical medication, i.e. it is applied directly to the skin.
Testosterone creams and gels have their side effects (see below), and that is why it is crucial that you only get this medication on a doctor’s prescription and use it properly under medical supervision.
Never apply directly to the genitals. Other reas where this cream should not be applied include the abdomen, as well as on an injured part of the body, on a sore, or on a cut on the body.
The best place to apply the cream is an area of the body that isn’t obstructed by too much hair or body fat. The inner wrists are ideal, along with the upper arms, shoulders and rib cage.
If all goes well, a user can experience the following effects:
- The growth of facial and chest hair
- Increased muscle mass
- Loss of excess fat
- Improved bone density
- Boosted sex drive and even fertility
Are There Any Side-Effects with Testosterone Cream?
Yes, testosterone cream comes with side effects that can worsen overtime if ignored. These effects are both physical and psychological and they include:
- Mood swings
- Low sex drive
- Hair loss
- Sleep issues
- Dry skin
In addition, users should immediately seek medical help if any of these conditions occur:
- Frequent urination which cannot be controlled
- Change in skin color
- Swelling of hands and feet
Testosterone Cream Safety Measures
With the possibility of side-effects, medical consultation becomes a necessity. A doctor can tell whether a patient is allergic to testosterone, soy, and alcoholic products etc. In addition, patients should clearly inform the doctor if he is using other medications as well.
Are Testosterone Creams Steroids?
Since testosterone is linked with muscle mass and bodybuilders, many people think of these creams as something similar to anabolic steroids. Remember the BALCO scandal that included Barry Bonds and his “rub”?
In regards to steroids and testosterone cream there is no comparison. Testosterone creams available on the market only replace or supplement testosterone that occurs naturally in the body. Testosterone cream is only available via a doctor’s prescription and when men use it they must be monitored by the doctor
In conclusion, testosterone creams for the most part have been shown to have positive effects on men, especially in areas of muscle growth and improved sexual function. Testosterone cream can also increase a feeling of “well-being” and improve focus and concentration.
Many men are turning to testosterone cream as a way to improve their performance and appearance as they age. The improvements in quality of life are well documented as it improves their sexual, physical and mental health.
