As men age, there is a natural and anticipated decline in testosterone levels, typically commencing around the age of 30. While this decline is a normal part of the aging process, it brings about various undesired physical and mental changes. Regenerative medicine offers a solution by replenishing some of the diminishing factors associated with aging, potentially enhancing energy levels and mitigating the adverse effects of testosterone depletion that come with advancing age.

Hormone Therapy and Andropause

The term “andropause” denotes the gradual decline in testosterone levels that occurs in all men, but it doesn’t imply that you’re powerless against it.

Hormone replacement therapy, often employing bioidentical hormones that mirror the structure of your body’s hormones, could be the appropriate approach to address:

  • Decreased sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Low energy
  • Loss of lean muscle mass
  • Difficulty losing weight/weight gain
  • Poor sleep
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Hair loss
  • Foggy or unclear thinking

Experiencing these symptoms can leave you feeling less than optimal. In a personalized consultation, we can determine whether low testosterone levels might be contributing to these negative effects.

HRT and Hypogonadism

Hormone replacement therapy may be a suitable option if you’ve been diagnosed with hypogonadism, a condition indicating below-normal testosterone production by the testes. Unlike age-related testosterone decline, hypogonadism can affect younger men, and hormone therapy can effectively replenish testosterone levels.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones closely emulate the structure of your body’s hormones. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) restores deficient levels of testosterone or other hormones in the body. These hormones are derived from plant materials.

Initiating the Process

Firstly, an assessment of your current hormonal levels is necessary. Following testing and evaluation, we can determine if you’re a suitable candidate for hormone replacement therapy. Administration can be through implantable pellets, oral pills, or skin creams. The results can last several months to a year.
