What causes low testosterone levels in men?
Many factors can generally contribute to having low testosterone, which may stem from aging to chronic diseases. Some common causes are from having a testicular injury, obesity, medication side effects, and age. It’s important to note that a slight change in specific low T symptoms should not be too worrisome, as every year, men over the age of 30 produce less testosterone, also known as hypogonadism.
Think you’re experiencing low testosterone levels? Having this hormone is essential in male growth and developing masculine characteristics as it affects one’s:
- Muscle mass
- Facial and pubic hair
- Sex drive
- Voice deepening
- Verbal memory and thinking abilities
If you are worried about low testosterone, TRT treatments have been found to relieve these symptoms and help individuals who feel that they need more testosterone to function better in their day-to-day life.
What are the benefits of TRT treatments?
TRT treatments are beneficial in playing a pivotal role for men in obtaining higher testosterone levels. As an example of higher muscle mass, TRT increases overall muscle mass for those who have low T, regardless of whether one isn’t extensively exercising.
In addition to having high levels of the above masculine characteristics with testosterone, men are ultimately more likely to experience a higher quality of life that positively impacts them mentally and physically. From having a healthier heart to better libido, it is undoubtedly worth a consultation in determining if the boost of testosterone is the right decision for you!
What are the different types of TRT treatments?
TRT can be applied in various forms and usually is selected based on personal preference, cost, coverage by insurance, or convenience.

How to prepare for your TRT appointment
You may be eager to book your TRT appointment, so it’s important to be prepared to answer any questions that the doctor or care provider has to get you started on your treatments.
To make the consultation process as smooth as possible, ensure that you have a list for your doctor, revealing any personal information (history of illnesses, stresses, and any other relevant health concerns), allergies or current medications, and symptoms you may have noticed that could be related to having low testosterone.
It’s less frustrating to go through a long TRT planning process that you know you need than to spend time going back and forth in a consult for a TRT treatment that you do not need to be on – so be prepared to answer these questions for your doctor when you get the opportunity to!
How often should I do TRT treatments?
As TRT is a long-term treatment, you will need to routinely have check-ups once or twice a year in order for the doctor to monitor your response to having the treatment and assess blood testosterone levels. Make sure that if you do decide to start using TRT, you plan to continue using it, as stopping may result in a drop in testosterone levels.
In terms of how often you should use testosterone, it may vary depending on the individual, so make sure you consult with a professional prior to prescribing your testosterone, and they will find the best fit for you.
How long does it take for TRT to work?
Within a week, you may begin to notice the effects and benefits TRT provides. Within several months, you may see varying positive changes in your body, such as improved mood, a boost in energy, and an increase in bone density, to name a few.
How much is a TRT session?
TRT treatments generally cost between $150 to $1,500 per month depending on the area, medication dosage, additional doctor/laboratory fees, treatment method, and insurance coverages.
Does my insurance cover TRT treatments?
Most insurance companies should partially cover TRT treatment costs, depending on the reason for going on the treatment and which insurance company is being used. Some insurance companies may also cover the cost of routine check-ups for your blood work appointments, so it’s a good idea to understand how much you actually have to pay.
If you are not sure if your insurance company covers this type of cost, it may be a good idea to go over your local health care plan or contact your insurance provider.
