Many TRT Therapy myths keep men from getting help. As a result, many men continue to face serious health issues and miss out on the benefits of TRT Therapy. This article will attempt to describe and debunk the three most common TRT therapy myths that keep men from getting proper care.

1. TRT Therapy Is Only For Older Men
It’s true that testosterone naturally declines after age 30. Still, one of the most common myths around low testosterone is that it only affects older men. This isn’t true. In fact, hypogonadism can affect men of all ages.
Symptoms such as decreased libido or erectile dysfunction are perceived to be low energy when it comes to young men. Since many miss the signs of having low testosterone, they don’t look into TRT replacement therapy. As a result, without proper attention, symptoms worsen over time.
2. TRT Therapy Increases Chances Of Cancer and Heart Disease
A big reason why many men don’t pursue testosterone therapy is due to the myth that it will increase the chances of developing cancer and or heart disease. More specifically, the common misconception is that TRT therapy will increase the risk of developing prostate cancer. Studies have actually shown the opposite to be true.
In addition to cancer, many believe that hormone therapy like TRT will increase the risk of cardiovascular issues. Studies have shown that there is no association between testosterone therapy and the risk of cardiovascular events, even for men with differing degrees of androgen deficiencies.

The final myth that keeps men from exploring TRT Therapy is that they believe low testosterone cannot be reversed. Studies have shown this also not to be true.
TRT Therapy can help with the common symptoms of low testosterone, such as low libido, low energy, impotence. Plus, studies show that when combining TRT therapy with physical activity and adequate nutrition, you can increase muscle strength and improve your sense of well-being.
