Testosterone Replacement Therapy at CJA Balance – Improve Your Testosterone Levels
Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a form of hormone replacement therapy for men with low levels of testosterone.
At CJA Balance we can replace lost testosterone with a synthetic testosterone designed to boost your testosterone levels to a natural and healthy range.
Some men are born with low testosterone, while others may see their levels decrease much faster due to their genetic disposition, unhealthy lifestyle habits, stress and ageing.
The results from TRT vary from person to person with many men reporting positive and life-changing improvements after taking Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Can You Increase Your Testosterone Levels Naturally?
Some people try to increase their testosterone levels naturally by making improvements to their lifestyle, including losing weight, increasing cardio, reducing stress levels and lifting weights. While we should always welcome such positive changes to our lifestyle, there is no evidence these will improve your testosterone levels.
The only way to know for sure if your testosterone levels are healthy is to have a blood test. CJA Balance offers discreet blood test kits which can be administered in the privacy of your own home. Find out more about testosterone blood tests here.
How is TRT Administered?
Testosterone Replacement Therapy in the UK is available at CJA Balance as a gel or injection.
Testosterone gel: The gel is applied topically to either the arms, shoulders or abdomen for 2 to 5 hours where the testosterone seeps through the skin. You should not touch another person until the gel is fully absorbed as this can be transferred to them.
Testosterone injections: This is the most common way to take testosterone. TRT is injected into the shoulder, leg or glute muscle on average once every 8-10 weeks. We offer TRT injections using Nebido Sustanon Cypionante and Enanthate.
Medical Research Into TRT
Most of the side effects to taking TRT will be managed by your CJA Balance doctor who will monitor you and prescribe the appropriate combination of medications.
Two of the most widely talked about concerns is whether TRT is linked to an increased risk of a heart attack or stroke. There is little evidence to suggest this and recent studies suggest that TRT can actually increase life span and general health.
A 2017 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association looked at over 44,000 men suffering with androgen deficiency and showed a 33% lower risk of cardiovascular events in men who used TRT compared to those who did not.
The World Journal of Men’s Health also reported the results of a study into TRT, saying the study found that TRT was not linked with any increased risk for Myocardia Infarction (where the supply of blood to the heart is blocked). It stated: ‘In contrast, men at greater risk for heart problems who underwent TRT actually had a lower rate of heart attacks than similar men who did not receive this treatment.’
Sadly, old and discredited studies continue to influence some doctors and patients so please get in touch with CJA Balance so we can assess whether Testosterone Replacement Therapy is right for you.
Getting Your Oestrogen Levels Right
The level of oestrogen in your body will rise when you take TRT and too much oestrogen in the body can cause various side effects. These will, of course, be carefully monitored and controlled by the CJA Balance doctors who can prescribe medication to block oestrogen production. This will ensure your levels are just right to avoid side effects.
Side effects – if TRT is poorly managed – could include ‘man boobs’, swelling, moodiness, water retention, poor libido, poor erection, anxiety.

What To Do If You Think You Have Low Testosterone Levels
If you’ve reached a point in your life where you lead a healthy lifestyle, are ageing normally and exercise regularly, but you display the symptoms of low testosterone levels, then we would recommend that you have a blood test to assess your testosterone levels.
You might also want to take the ADAM test which is a strong indicator as to whether your testosterone levels are low. Take the ADAM questionaiire here. For information about our at-home testosterone blood test, please follow this link.
