PeakPerforMAX now offers testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) in Jupiter, FL!
Testosterone is a male sex hormone that supports key sexual and reproductive functions.
After the age of 40, testosterone levels naturally decline by 1 to 2% per year. Low testosterone, sometimes referred to as “Low T” interferes with sexual health and quality of life.
With TRT treatment, men with symptoms of low testosterone typically see results in as little as 4 to 6 weeks.
What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
TRT is an FDA-approved treatment for low testosterone. It works by restoring normal levels of the hormone, which returns the body to a normal level of functioning and alleviates symptoms of Low T.
Testosterone replacement therapy is available in several different forms:
Your PeakPerforMAX board-certified doctor will help you determine which treatment option is most appropriate for you.

Why Do Men Begin Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
If you have low testosterone, symptoms can become more severe over time if you delay treatment.
Men who have Low T often experience multiple symptoms, which interferes with their relationships and overall quality of life. Patients eventually seek treatment when their symptoms begin to affect day-to-day life in a negative way.
How is Low Testosterone Diagnosed?
A simple blood test will determine if your testosterone levels are lower than normal. Your doctor will assess whether TRT is a necessary or appropriate treatment based on your age and medical history.
Because testosterone levels vary throughout the day, you may need to have several tests to assess your baseline hormone levels.
Once your doctor establishes a diagnosis of low testosterone, you’ll discuss which treatment option makes the most sense for you.
