09 Aug Testosterone Replacement and Night Sweats
Many men find themselves waking up in a puddle of sweat most nights. For these men, it is about more than just being a “hot sleeper.” If you sweat like this, no matter what the temperature in the room, this may be a more serious problem. Men who wake up covered in perspiration may be suffering from night sweats.
Approximately 41% of adults suffer from night sweats. Many times, they are caused by some type of underlying condition. In many situations, these night sweats are also accompanied with other symptoms.
Men who suffer from night sweats, typically also have low T, or hypogonadism. If you are one of the man men suffering from night sweats because of this condition, then testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT, may be able to help.
What Exactly Are Night Sweats?
There is a different between sweating at night or being a sweaty sleeper and night sweats. The main difference is not only waking up in a tremendous amount of sweat, but sweating even when you are in a cool and comfortable environment.
Night sweats can often be a sign of issues with your health, with low testosterone being one of the most common culprits. Night sweats can also interrupt your quality of sleep, make it difficult to stay asleep and lead to issues with fatigue and sleep deprivation.
While occasional night sweats are typically not too worrisome, regular and frequent night sweats are something that should be addressed.
How Can TRT Help?
If you are struggling with night sweats, a testosterone test will be able to let you know if low T is to blame. This is one of the most common causes of night sweats in men. Other symptoms of low T may include low energy, low libido, unexplained weight gain, mood changes, difficulty concentrating and sexual dysfunction.
If you have your testosterone levels checked by a doctor and low T is to blame for your night sweats, Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT can help. Here at LT Men’s Clinic, we offer four primary types of TRT, each with their own unique benefits, depending on your lifestyle.
Our treatments include:
Pellets- These are administered in-office every 3-6 months and provide a steady steam of hormones. Pellets are accepted by most insurance companies.
Injections- These are given in-office every 7-10 days. Most people experience a peak right away following their dosage.
Patches- These patches are placed directly on the skin every night and provide a steady supply of hormones throughout the day.
Creams- This TRT treatment is applied once every 24 hours into the shoulders, thighs or upper arms. Once the cream enters the bloodstream rapidly, it is effective almost immediately.
