Testosterone is the male sex hormone. It plays an essential role in sperm and red blood cell production and gives men their deep voices and muscle mass.
After the age of 30, a man’s testosterone levels decline by about 1% each year. Though this is a normal part of the natural aging process, it can result in a variety of unpleasant side effects, including erectile dysfunction, lethargy, and sleep disturbances.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a minimally invasive treatment used to restore testosterone to healthy levels. Traditional treatment involves the administration of testosterone via injection or through topical medication like gels and creams.
At Simply Men’s Health, the team uses bio-identical testosterone therapy. Studies show that this treatment safely restores testosterone levels, promoting sperm production while protecting against heart and bone disease.
Traditional testosterone placement therapy used synthetic hormones manufactured in a laboratory environment. Bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy uses hormones derived from natural sources like plants. The hormones that plants produce are almost identical to human hormones, providing longer-lasting, and more effective results.
Bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy doesn’t increase your risk of other health problems. It’s safe and usually well-tolerated. In fact, normal testosterone levels are essential to maintaining your cardiovascular and prostate health, mental clarity, and sexual vitality.
Traditional testosterone replacement therapy uses several hormones, including estrogen and DHT. Bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy only uses testosterone, ensuring you experience no negative side-effects.
To determine if testosterone replacement therapy is right for you, your Simply Men’s Health provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle. If you’re over the age of 40 and experiencing hair loss, erectile dysfunction, or low libido, testosterone replacement therapy may be right for you.
Your provider develops a custom treatment plan that aligns with your individual goals and needs. In-office bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy can help you feel healthier, stronger, and more energetic and alert.
To achieve the best possible results from testosterone replacement therapy, follow your provider’s instructions, and attend all follow-up appointments. You should undergo routine lab work and blood tests to ensure your testosterone levels are optimal.
