Hormone Optimization for Men
Boost Energy, Stamina, and Vitality
Testosterone levels start to decrease, and estrogen levels increase in men as early as their late 20’s but most significantly in their 40’s and 50’s. This change in hormone levels, known as andropause, is increasingly common as men age, with symptoms ranging from low sex drive, loss of muscle mass, depression, irritability, brain fog, lack of focus, and increased body fat. By taking advantage of our comprehensive health screening, you can determine whether your symptoms are attributable to a change in hormone levels, and our medical team can set out your personalized treatment plan to reach your goals and regain your vitality.
What are the signs and symptoms of low testosterone in men?
Low levels of testosterone in men are much more than just low sex drive or sexual dysfunction.
Symptoms consistent with low testosterone are:
- Low sex drive
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Chronic fatigue
- Loss of muscle mass
- Increased body fat (especially in the waist area)
- Decreased bone density
- Mood changes
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sleep disturbances
Testosterone is a natural steroidal hormone found in both men and women. It handles the development of muscle mass and bone density. In men, it is the driving force in sperm production and helps the regulation of libido. Testosterone is also responsible for fat distribution and metabolism.
Hormone Pellets & Pellet Therapy are the most natural option and considered one of the most effective ways to deliver bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of pellets is intended to replace the deficient hormones in your body.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is pro-hormone that encourages the production of other hormones in the body. hCG is used in men to increase or restore testosterone production. In men undergoing hormone replacement therapy, their testes may stop producing testosterone, so hCG can remind their testes to keep producing testosterone.
