  • In deciding whether to make use of testosterone replacement therapy, it can be helpful to look at other men who have opted for the same treatment. Whilst some men choose to keep their use of TRT private because of its personal nature, there are many celebrities who have led the way by speaking openly about using TRT.

    What is TRT?

    Most men experience a natural decline in testosterone levels as they grow older. For many, the symptoms of this will be easily manageable. Others may experience notable negative side effects, such as tiredness, hair loss, higher levels of body fat, reduced muscle mass and reduced libido.

    There are also younger men who experience unnaturally low levels of testosterone. In some cases, testosterone levels can be adjusted through lifestyle changes such as improved diet and more exercise. For some men, however, testosterone replacement therapy can be the best way to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

    Robbie Williams

    Former Take That member turned solo artist, Robbie Williams may be the most famous example of a celebrity using TRT. During his thirties, Williams suffered from depression and low energy levels. An investigation by doctors found that his testosterone levels were closer to those of an 80-year-old than a man in his prime. Since then, TRT has helped Williams improve his energy levels as well as reducing his body fat and building his muscle mass.

    Joe Rogan

    It is probably not surprising that many sportsmen have taken advantage of TRT. Testosterone is, after all, associated with increased muscle mass. Martial artist, commentator and comedian Joe Rogan is a high profile example in America.

    Sylvester Stallone

    Sylvester Stallone is well into his seventies, but he has still been making appearances as his iconic action heroes Rocky and Rambo. Part of the reason he has managed to maintain his impressive levels of physical fitness is because he uses TRT as well as human growth hormone (HGH).

    Mel Gibson

    Rumour has it that another former action movie star, Mel Gibson, has also used TRT to help him stay in shape, despite having switched from performing in front of the camera to directing from behind it.

    Jeff Bezos

    As the owner of Amazon, billionaire Jeff Bezos is believed to be the richest man in the world. His focus has not just been on his business empire, however, as in recent years he has used TRT to improve his physique for a noticeably more muscled look.

    Conclusion

    It can be easy to dismiss the symptoms of low testosterone as just a natural part of ageing, but in recent years, awareness of the effects of low testosterone and ways of treating it have increased. It only takes a blood test to diagnose low testosterone and then TRT is available as an injection or cream. Guidelines as to when TRT is appropriate, however, vary and many men still do not realise that they can ask for a blood test to check their testosterone levels.

    As the celebrities who use TRT show, testosterone replacement therapy can have a place, whether you are a younger man with unhealthily low testosterone or an older man who is struggling with ageing. It is not a miracle cure, but it can help ease many of the symptoms of low testosterone.
