Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Replacing Lost Testosterone
A man who is experiencing a decline in his hormone levels usually has unpleasant symptoms like less energy and enthusiasm, weight gain in areas he never had problems before and a regression in his physical capabilities and competitive edge when it comes to sports. Many men notice that they have difficulty maintaining muscle and experience muscle atrophy. He may even see a deterioration in sexual performance and stamina or disinterest in sex. This is a common condition among men in their mid to late 30s and early 40s, often classified as “male menopause” or Andropause.
Although men naturally start to experience a drop in hormone levels as they age, some men experience a drastic decline in their hormones for a host of other reasons like adverse reactions to medication, malnutrition, insomnia or poor sleeping habits, stress, overindulgence in alcohol consumption, kidney failure, testicular injury or genetic disorder and most importantly the food we eat and the items in which we prepare our food. It’s a discouraging predicament for men to be in, but with a doctor regulated treatment program combining a healthy lifestyle and male hormone treatment, it’s possible to bounce back and regain the vitality you had in your 20s or before the symptoms occurred.
Before receiving hormone replacement, men should have a blood test administered to determine if their hormone levels are considered low. From there we can decide what the best treatment package would be to raise the testosterone levels back to normal. For patients who are unsure about the costs and what’s involved in our treatment program, we’d like to address some common questions patients have before receiving testosterone hormone replacement therapy.
Call us to talk about our Testosterone treatments and see if we can make a difference for you as we have for so many men in Dallas.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a vital hormone that is produced in humans and is critical to the reproductive function in males. Produced in the testicles, testosterone is the main contributor to the development of muscles, bone mass, body hair and the general health of men. Women produce testosterone in their ovaries but have significantly lower levels of it in their bodies. For men, testosterone is an important component for maintaining male characteristics, which start to accelerate at the pubescent stage. The changes that occur account for the deepening of the voice, the enlargement of muscles, the production of sperm and the increase in body hair.
Along with being a primary sex hormone, it promotes healthy sperm and sexual function. Although the decline happens naturally, there are ways to raise the levels with and without medical intervention.
Men can expect a natural drop in testosterone levels as they age and it can be a difficult mental and physical adjustment. This is a stage of life commonly referred to as “Andropause” or “male menopause”. Some men have a more drastic decline in hormone levels. In these cases, hormone replacement therapy may be required to raise hormone levels back to a normal state.
At Advanced Skin Fitness, we provide hormone replacement therapy for men who are suffering from abnormally low levels of testosterone. It’s a common problem and it affects more than 4 million men in America. Many of them aren’t sure why they’re having negative changes in their bodies. Some of them recognize that they may be experiencing a decrease in testosterone, but they’re not sure where to begin to get help. Fortunately, as more men come forward seeking a resolution for low testosterone, doctors
have been working to perfect a treatment plan to resolve the issue.
Before receiving hormone therapy, men should know if the changes in their bodies are due to lower testosterone levels or some other physical reasons. And if they do have low testosterone levels, what are the reasons for the decline and what are normal and abnormal levels.
Testosterone therapy from Advanced Skin Fitness may be just the answer you have been looking for. Don’t ignore the signs! We can help to get you back to feeling like yourself again.
How does a man know he has low Testosterone?
If a man notices sexual dysfunction, lower stamina, weakness, depression, muscle loss, or increase in body fat these may be signs of low testosterone.
Aging can be a determining factor for abnormal levels of testosterone. Loss of muscle tone or difficulty building muscle can also be a sign that testosterone levels may be lower than normal. Men may notice unexplainable weight gain around their stomachs. A feeling of fatigue and/or weakness is a symptom, along with feeling unusually depleted after exercising.
One major sign of low testosterone is erectile dysfunction and decreased libido. Stamina also decreases. Feelings of depression, stress and irritability often accompany low testosterone. Insomnia or trouble sleeping can be a symptom as well. If men indulge in excessive smoking, drinking or are taking prescription medications, they may experience low testosterone.
To be sure that a man is experiencing low testosterone, a simple blood test and physical exam can detect the problem and have him on his way to a male hormone treatment program that could drastically improve his physical and emotional health.
What makes Advanced Skin Fitness different from other Low T centers?
