Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT the term used when bioidentical (the same as the body normally produces) testosterone is administered into the body to help restore testosterone back to normal physiological levels. TRT is used to treat symptoms of low testosterone.TRT is carefully monitored with regular blood tests to make sure that a balance is achieved with other hormones.
We are really excited to introduce TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) from our pharmacy branch in Nuneaton. This service allows men to access a private TRT from their local. The service is run by our team of expert pharmacist independent prescribers who are working with the clinical lead from Nebulahealth.co.uk, the UK’s premier Men’s Health clinic.
The Pharmacyrepublic TRT clinic offers an initial FREE TRT consultation, during which the ADAM (Androgen Deficiency in the Ageing Male) questionnaire is completed along with a detailed discussion of the symptoms of low testosterone.
After the initial consultation, a TRT blood test can be taken to assess your testosterone blood levels. We will also check other markers to make sure that TRT is safe for you. The markers we test are:
Full Blood Count
Kidney Function Test
Liver Function Test
After the blood results have been received a second consultation is carried out with the pharmacist independent prescriber. During this consultation the blood results are analysed in great detail. During this consultation TRT management plans are also discussed.
Following this consultation and agreement of a management plan the TRT programme is started and the medicines dispensed and administered from the pharmacy if intra muscular injections have been prescribed.
A second blood test is booked after two months to determine how the patient is responding to TRT. If this second blood test is normal the management plan proceeds with a further blood test after six months and then either once or twice a year thereafter.
What are the symptoms of low testosterone?
The unfortunate fact of ageing is the sad truth that as men age their testosterone decline. As a result, men start to experience the symptoms of testosterone deficiency. This has been called the ‘male menopause’ or the andropause.
Some men develop depression, loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and other physical and emotional symptoms when they reach their late 40s to early 50s. In some cases, some men’s testosterone levels under optimised and they may begin to see these symptoms earlier.
Take the ADAM Questionnaire, a screening tool for hypogonadism. A positive questionnaire result is defined as a “yes” answer to questions 1 or 7 or any 3 other questions. Our recommendation is to immediately book a free consultation with one of our specialists.
