Side Effects of Testosterone Therapy

Avoid Side Effects of Testosterone Replacement Therapy by Choosing an Expert Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor

Are There Any Side Effects to Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

  • There are minimal to no side effects if the physician prescribing the hormones is an expert in hormone replacement therapy for men. Unfortunately, most doctors do not have the necessary training to design and prescribe bioidentical hormone replacement therapies for men.
    • All physicians (M.D. and D.O.) are able to prescribe hormones despite their lack of knowledge and experience in the specialized field of hormone replacement therapy.
      • Excessive testosterone levels and/or imbalance of other hormones can result in:
        • Elevated cholesterol levels, elevated blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease, increased risk of liver disease, increased risk of kidney disease, polycythemia (excessive red blood cell production), gynecomastia (man boobs), hair loss, acne, water retention, and prostate enlargement.
      • Testosterone levels that are too low will result in no noticeable benefits from testosterone replacement therapy.
