Men experience a gradual reduction in testosterone, starting at about age 30. While this is completely normal and expected as you grow older, there are several undesirable physical and mental changes that accompany hormonal decline. Regenerative medicine provides a means of replenishing some of that which is lost to age, which may boost your energy and undo some of the age-related effects of testosterone depletion.
Hormone Therapy and Andropause
The term “andropause” refers to this gradual testosterone decline. It happens to all men, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything you can do about it.
Hormone replacement therapy – often using bioidentical hormones that are identical to the structure of the hormones in your body – may be the right way to address:
- Decreased sex drive
- Low energy
- Loss of lean muscle mass
- Difficulty losing weight/weight gain
- Poor sleep
- Erectile dysfunction
- Mood swings
- Difficulty concentrating
- Hair loss
- Foggy or unclear thinking
All of these things can leave you feeling less than spectacular. In a one-on-one consultation with you, it will be determined whether testosterone levels in your body could be causing these negative effects.
HRT and Hypogonadism
This regenerative medicine therapy may be right for you if you have been diagnosed with hypogonadism. This condition is indicated when the testes do not produce normal levels of testosterone.
Unlike age-related testosterone decline, hypogonadism can affect you as a younger man. Hormone therapy may be an effective way to replenish your testosterone.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones closely mimic the structure of the hormones in your body. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) replenishes levels of testosterone or other hormones lacking in a person’s body. This type of hormone is derived from plant materials.
Get Started on the Process
First your current hormonal levels must be evaluated. After testing and assessment, we can determine if you are a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy. It can be administered via implantable pellets, pills taken by mouth or creams used on the skin. The results can last several months to a year.
