The Indian Healthcare system and associated services are currently worth around $156Billion and a huge chunk of that is being spent by private citizens on a quest to improve their general levels of healthcare, fitness and wellness. So, let’s begin.

What is TRT Therapy Exactly?

TRT stands for “testosterone replacement therapy” and as the name suggests, its primary purpose is to act as a supplement for men who are experiencing low levels of testosterone. It is administered through “intramuscular injection”, that is to say into a muscle directly. There it is absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the system, where the appropriate nervous systems etc absorb and process it.

While intramuscular administration is the most common form of dosing, you can also use patches, gels and subcutaneous pellets.


Can I use TRT Therapy?

Fans of TRT will give you a resounding “yes” to that question but there are a few things you should know before starting this course of action that can place you in the best possible position to make an informed decision.

The only way to know if you have low levels of TRT is to visit a healthcare practitioner for a test.

Whether or not you want to take TRT is a decision that you will ultimately have to make. There is currently no real way of predicting otherwise healthy individuals results when taking TRT.
