Research Shows Injected Testosterone Safer and More Effective for Aging Men

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) comes in a variety of treatment applications, including injection. The American Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology and Metabolism recently published a review showing intramuscular injected TRT “produces greater musculoskeletal benefits and lower cardiovascular risk compared to transdermal TRT… We also review the literature discussing the use of 5α-reductase inhibitors as a promising means of improving the safety profile of TRT.” (AJP – April 21, 2015)

Researchers from the University of Florida at Gainesville captained the most recent study review detailing no significant cardiovascular risks associated with injected or transdermal TRT. (NCBI) Aging men with clinically low testosterone levels (hypogonadism) experience improved musculoskeletal health from injected TRT compared to transdermal or oral TRT due to higher dosage levels in intramuscular injections.

As with any medical treatment, there may be side effects to consider with TRT. Inconclusive evidence may suggest increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease or prostate cancer, while an equal amount of research contrasts those same concerns. What is clear is the extraordinary benefits of safe and effective testosterone replacement therapy, including the following and more:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased sex drive
  • Decreased belly fat
  • Improved bone mineral density
