Personalized Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) at WellCentric Health in Reno, NV

What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)?

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a medical treatment aimed at restoring testosterone levels in men who have low testosterone due to aging or medical conditions. This hormone is crucial for maintaining energy levels, muscle mass, bone density, and sexual function. TRT can significantly improve quality of life by addressing symptoms related to testosterone deficiency.

Debunking Myths

Misinformation and myths about testosterone replacement therapy are common. Below, we address and correct some of the most prevalent misunderstandings to ensure you are fully informed:


  • Testosterone therapy in hypogonadal men does not increase the risk of prostate cancer, and when guidelines are properly applied, testosterone treatment is safe in hypogonadal men.
  • Testosterone replacement therapy may be considered in men with a history of prostate cancer, as it is not associated with increased overall or cancer-specific mortality.


Contrary to the previous dogma that prostatic growth is directly proportional to testosterone levels, emerging research has suggested a lack of testosterone may be a risk factor for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

The current evidence suggests that not only does testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) not worsen LUTS, but that hypogonadism itself is an important risk factor for LUTS/BPH.

Possible, but avoidable.

When testosterone is provided exogenously the brain senses that levels of testosterone are adequate and will stop sending the signal to the testes to make sperm and testosterone. The testicles may shrink in size as these manufacturing duties are no longer needed. This is avoidable with the use of a second medication that keeps the brain sending the signal to the testes to keep working.

Many men beyond child-bearing age are not concerned with this, but the option to add the second medication is yours.


Some studies suggest that testosterone replacement therapy can increase anger or aggression in certain personality types or under specific conditions, while other studies find no significant effect on aggression or even a reduction in negative mood without increased aggression.

False – when properly monitored

The development of enlarged breathing tissue, or gynecomastia, occurs when too much testosterone is converted into estrogen. Estrogen is important for men, as well as for women, but not too much. This is monitored and can be prevented with herbal or pharmaceutical supplements.
