I got a beard! Why do I need to worry about my T? Learn about Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Updated: Jun 18, 2023


Testosterone Replacement Therapy raises T levels
Even with a beard, you could have low testosterone

Today's man has lower testosterone than his grandfather.


Testosterone is a male hormone that plays vital roles in body function, from the cellular to cerebral level. Due to dietary changes--namely higher saturated fats, sugars, and additives--in society among other factors over the decades, men have 15-20% lower testosterone than ever before.


Laboratory reference ranges continue to drop. The acceptable--called normal today--range starts at around 240 ng/dL or lower. This is true for both a 20-year-old and an 80-year-old. According to the current medical practice guidelines, there is no age adjustment for your T levels. One word sums this up--CRAZY!


Here at Vitali-T Men's Health & Testosterone Clinic, we believe that we should treat the patient, not a number. That's why we exist. Insurance doesn't want to pay for men to have testosterone therapy replacement (often shortened to TRT).


The reference ranges mentioned above continue to decrease due to society's average T levels decreasing over time. It will only be a matter of time before the acceptable low normal testosterone range will be 150 ng/dL. We at Vitali-T are here to stop that.


Symptoms of low testosterone include low motivation and energy. Do you feel wiped out after working in the yard for 30 minutes? Do you take days to recover from the soreness? If so, you might have low T. How's your intimate life? Are you engaged with your partner, no longer interested, or feel you can't perform? Then, there is a high likelihood that you have low testosterone that needs to be treated. It's time to get off the couch and engage in life again. TRT could be the answer you're looking for.


TRT--or hormone replacement therapy--sometimes referred to as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy--often helps men regain energy, strength, improved mood, and libido, with effects of decreased belly fat, love handles, and overall weight. TRT improves metabolic rate and function, increases lean muscle mass, which is essential for metabolism and weight maintenance. Testosterone helps counteract the decline of the aging process.
