Testosterone is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body and is essential for the development of male sexual characteristics, as well as for maintaining bone density, muscle mass, and red blood cell production. However, as men age, their testosterone levels tend to decrease, which can result in a variety of symptoms, such as reduced sex drive, fatigue, and muscle weakness.
Low testosterone, or low T, is a common condition that can affect men of all ages, but it is most common in older men. Low testosterone is a growing issue for men, but it is widely untreated and misdiagnosed. This can often result in men suffering unnecessarily with physical, emotional, mental, and sexual symptoms.
Luckily, Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a medical treatment available through Bodyline Wellness Clinics that increases testosterone levels in men with low levels of the hormone.
What Causes Low Testosterone?
There are a few factors that can contribute to low testosterone levels in men. Leading a sedentary lifestyle as well as suffering with obesity are variables that can cause decreasing testosterone.
Most commonly, however, it is aging that impacts testosterone depletion the most, as levels naturally decline over the course of a man’s life. Generally, testosterone reduces by around 1% per year after the age of 30.
This natural reduction coupled with increased sedentary lifestyles and obesity levels can lead to several negative symptoms of low testosterone. These symptoms can include:
- Reduced libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low mood
- Weight gain
- Night sweats
- Short term memory loss
- Loss of muscle mass and strength
- Breast development
- Increased body fat

Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) involves the administration of testosterone to increase levels in the body. TRT can be administered through several methods such as creams, injections and gels etc.
The hormones available in TRT include testosterone and DHEA, and we also prescribe vitamins D and B12 according to blood work and medical analysis. Your treatment plan is tailored to your symptoms and hormone and vitamin requirements. Full lifestyle advice will be given including bespoke advice around nutrition and the appropriate use of supplements. Bodyline will also advise the best way to administer the chosen prescription. Depending on blood results your prescription could include testosterone, DHEA, Vitamin D and Vitamin B12.
Bodyline’s prescriptions include testosterone cream and with DHEA capsules if needed.

Some people look to treat their low testosterone in other ways alongside testosterone replacement therapy:
Making lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, eating a healthy diet, and getting regular exercise, can help to increase testosterone levels naturally.
As with many health concerns, nutrition plays a significant role in addressing low testosterone. By incorporating specific nutrients into a balanced and healthy diet, men can help support their body’s natural testosterone production. These nutrients include magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids, among others.
Exercise is a powerful tool for increasing testosterone levels naturally. Strength training with weights, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and other forms of exercise that challenge the body have been shown to increase testosterone levels in men.
Chronic stress can have a negative impact on testosterone levels. By incorporating stress-management techniques into their daily routine, men can help keep their testosterone levels in balance. Techniques such as meditation, yoga, and deep breathing can all be effective stress-management tools.
