Low Testosterone Management: The Basics of Testosterone Replacement and the HPTA

  • The HPTA

Testosterone replacement management starts and ends with understanding the Hypothalamic, Pituitary, Testicular axis, the HPTA.  This is the fundamental supply and demand system that manages men’s testosterone and sperm levels in their bodies.  Understanding this axis is crucial in determining whether a man’s testosterone deficiencies are from primary or secondary hypogonadism.  This will in turn affect how to properly diagnose and prescribe that patient.  Without understanding the give and take involved in the hormone production, a doctor will either usually over prescribe, under prescribe or simply leave out the very vital co-travelers necessary to optimizing a man’s hormonal health.  Watch this video on our Low T Nation youtube channel to learn the basics about how a man’s hormones are monitored and stimulated when needed.  Also, how and when to add HCG and Clomid to ensure all testicular health and function processes are kept intact and healthy.

  1. I have been on injected testosterone treatment 5+ years with fair results ( T level first lab was only 75 ). However the last 12-18 mos I gain 10 lbs in same number of days when going on T after being off 6 weeks or so. Back on it takes about 7-10 days to start, but then gain. Mostly bloated abs, face.
    Anti age Dr put me in a diaretic for water gain. Not much difference.
    Ideas? Almost 60 yo – workout daily – good shape and health otherwise.
