Testosterone Replacement Therapy
As the population ages and environmental toxins act as endocrine disrupters, Testosterone Replacement Therapy has become a popular and much needed treatment. Symptoms of low testosterone include low sex drive, weight gain, poor energy, loss of muscle mass, depression, difficulty concentrating, and irritability. The condition may also increase the risk of heart disease.
Hormone deficiency can be managed in a variety of ways. Our approach starts with lifestyle improvement and nutritional support. We use injections, topical creams, and testosterone patches in older men when replacement is appropriate. For younger men, we emphasize finding the underlying cause that is typically a lifestyle factor.
After testosterone treatment, many men report improved energy levels, sex drive, and mood.
