While women have more symptoms, men can equally benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Men begin to see a decline in their testosterone levels beginning in their 30’s and should be tested in their early to mid-40’s. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, loss of libido, problems achieving and maintaining an erection and a decline in mental acuity.
Men of all ages can experience decreased levels of testosterone. And, as men get older, they often hear that they should start expecting the symptoms of these lower levels, which include losing strength, gaining body fat, decreased energy and a diminished libido, to name just a few.
If you find this is true,Glow Medical Spa can help you regain your appetite for life! Our hormone replacement therapy program will help you regain the optimal level of testosterone, which will reverse many of the symptoms that men experience relating to low testosterone, especially in their 40s and 50s.
What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, helps men regain and then maintain their natural, optimal testosterone level. The testosterone that we give you contains the same chemical structure as the hormones that are already in your body. Now, we are able to re-introduce them into your body, where they will immediately begin to improve your health and energy. Since these testosterone supplements are identical to the hormones you already have, they have almost no side effects.
By sustaining levels of testosterone that would normally be produced through fully functioning testicles, pellet therapy balances the levels naturally, without the drawbacks of a synthetic hormone form.
Whereas traditional forms of therapy produce blood levels that rise up and fall down, inconsistently, creating a roller-coaster effect, pellet therapy provides a much more attuned level to the natural hormone output which helps eliminate mood swings and fatigue. Additionally, pellet therapy includes preventative effects against heart disease, Alzheimer’s, prostate cancer and osteoporosis, as well as other conditions.
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is the most effective process in closely duplicating your body’s natural hormones. Unlike synthetic or traditional hormone therapies that cause your levels to fluctuate, bioidentical pellets insure a more sustained level is released into your bloodstream and is a much more convenient method, lasting up to 3 to 4 months.
The implantation is completed in your doctor’s office and your progress is closely monitored to assure the appropriate levels are in place and providing optimal results.
What is the Benefit of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Some men show signs of andropause (men’s menopause) as early as their 30s, while others may not have their hormone levels drop until their 50s. Regardless of age, a decrease in testosterone can cause a severe disruption in your everyday life.
The symptoms of low testosterone include:
- Irritability and nervousness
- Lowed sex drive
- Low libido
- Brittle bones
- Losing height
- Sapped strength
- Extra body fat
- Diminished memory
BHRT restores men’s testosterone levels to their natural youthful levels. You’ll be surprised at how much energy, strength, and sexual function you regain when taking BHRT.
How Do I Begin BHRT?
Glow Medical Spa can help you improve your quality of life with our BHRT treatment for low testosterone. You’ll first talk to one of our doctors about your symptoms and concerns, and then we will take a full medical history, followed by a physical exam and blood testing to determine your current testosterone level. We will then implement a program that includes BHRT, and you will return to our office for regular follow-up visits so that we can monitor your progress. You’ll soon feel more like your old self, and will reap the benefits of this hormone replacement therapy: increased energy and libido, renewed strength, and great mental focus.
