LOW TESTOSTERONE, OR 'LOW T'
What is low testosterone or low testosterone treatment?
Testosterone is a sex hormone; It is naturally produced in both men and women but is made at a much higher level in men. Low testosterone is not just about libido or becoming stronger and bigger in the gym. While this can be an effect of treatment, the condition known as Low T is much more in-depth. It is what gives a male the secondary sex characteristics of a man. Testosterone – which can profoundly reduce energy levels – is responsible for stimulating muscle growth, achieving normal erectile and cognitive functions, restore energy levels and maintaining normal bone density.
When testosterone is produced in lower quantities and creates the condition known as hypogonadism, or Low T, all of these normal functions can begin to disappear. While this may seem concerning, low testosterone is readily treatable. But, the free testosterone may be available in your body, just not being utilized.

TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Suffering from low testosterone, or low t, can mean that you may have the low testosterone symptoms of fatigue, weakness, poor sleep, poor concentration, decreased strength, loss of muscle mass and decreased libido. At Mantality, we confirm these symptoms through blood tests. Once confirmed, we can successfully treat low testosterone with testosterone replacement therapy also known as TRT. While many test testosterone levels, our blood test will help determine your free testosterone levels.
Testosterone hits the blood stream in a few forms:
- SBGH or Sexual Binding Globulin, this testosterone is not available for use in the body.
- Estrogen, through a process called aromatization, the testosterone is changed to estradiol.
- Free Testosterone, the testosterone that is free to be used by the body.
At Mantality, free testosterone is what we recognize in the blood that is available to be used by your body. The name implies exactly what it is for, free use by the body. Free testosterone is also known as bioavailable testosterone as it is biologically available testosterone for maximum use by the body. But, is the rest of the testosterone gone?
We have a lot of men come to the office claiming their doctor or physician tested their total testosterone and claimed it was normal. While that may be true, a man’s total testosterone could be within the accepted normal limits, however, free testosterone can be low causing symptoms of low t.
Mantality is able to increase the amount of unbound or free T in your body. This is the most readily available form of testosterone for your body to use. This allows us to treat the body using testosterone injections which helps bring the body back into hormone balance meaning you are now stronger, leaner, sharper and can take life on with no fatigue.
