What Are the Side Effects of Hormone Therapy?

If you’ve been diagnosed with low testosterone, or low-T, you may be considering hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Millions of men have experienced the benefits of successful HRT, and for many men with low blood testosterone levels, the benefits of hormone replacement therapy outweigh the potential risks.

As with any medication, HRT (or testosterone replacement therapy for low-T), comes with certain risks. Although research has shown mixed results, some studies have found that testosterone replacement therapy could:

  • Contribute to sleep apnea
  • Limit sperm production
  • Stimulate overproduction of red blood cells
  • Cause acne or enlargement of the breasts
  • Increase the amount of plaque buildup in coronary arteries
  • Stimulate growth of existing prostate cancer

The key to successful low-T treatment is to partner with a medically credentialed, experienced group of specialists. The good news is that team is accessible throughout several locations in Texas and one in the Chicago area. At SynergenX Health’s low-T centers in Dallas, Kingwood, The Woodlands, McKinney, Houston, Katy, San Antonio, and Burr Ridge, our doctors and nurses carefully analyze your lab results to assess your candidacy for testosterone replacement therapy. Then they personalize your treatment, and closely monitor your progress with follow up visits to check your blood and hormone levels.
