Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men
There are many hormones that contribute to the well-being and healthy development of our bodies. Testosterone, also known as the primary male sex hormone, helps men regulate and maintain bodily functions such as facial and body hair growth, as well as sperm and red blood cell production.
This hormone also helps maintain bone density, muscle mass and, of course, libido. However, testosterone levels usually peak during adolescence and early adulthood, and start declining steadily after the age of 30.
The Condition: Decay in Testosterone Levels
Similarly to cholesterol or sugar levels, there’s a numerical range of testosterone that’s considered normal. Testosterone levels that are below the normal threshold can result in a number of negative effects. This includes:
- Fatigue and Low Energy Levels
- Low Bone Density
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Increased Risk of Diabetes and Heart Disease
- Depression and Anxiety
- Low Sexual Drive and Reduced Libido
- Decreased Muscle Mass
- Increased Body Fat
Testosterone directly affects different functions of the brain, including cognitive functions and moods. Reduced testosterone, either due to aging or andropause, can lead to the symptoms outlined above and affect brain function, leading to mood swings.
The Solution: Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy has been around for some time now. Whereas traditional treatments worked on a “one size fits all” premises, newly developed therapies allow for a more personalized approach, which results in more effective treatment options.
Hormone replacement therapy uses low-dose, bioidentical pellets to bring balance and restore your vitality levels. This remarkably simple delivery mechanism consists of customized pellets that are implanted under your skin, and release a natural amount of testosterone as your body needs it.
