Bio-Identical Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men
Most people know that testosterone is responsible for the development of the male reproductive system as well as a man’s secondary sexual characteristics. Those characteristics include features such as body hair as well as muscle growth and bone mass. What people sometimes forget is how vital testosterone is to the maintenance of those characteristics, as well as to the proper functioning of the male body. It has an effect on sexual arousal, aggressive and assertive behavior, and even the amount of energy and vitality the patient feels. A deficit in testosterone, commonly known as Low-T, can have an outsized impact on the body’s proper physical and mental functions.
A loss of testosterone is common as a man ages, but abnormal hormone imbalance can cause a lot of problems, including such symptoms as:
- Depression and Anxiety
- Sexual dysfunction or loss of libido
- Muscle loss and hair loss
- Fatigue or general difficulties with concentration
Many of these symptoms can be solved by the use of Bio-Identical Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center uses testosterone supplements that are identical down to the molecular level with your own natural testosterone. For more information on how this therapy can help you, contact our offices right away.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
The body naturally goes through changes as it ages. For men, that process is called andropause or low testosterone. While those changes are natural, the effects can be made more severe by an imbalance in the body’s hormones. Hormonal balance is controlled by the body’s endocrine system, a complex collection of glands. If those glands do not secrete hormones in the proper amount, the results can have a big impact on your life.
For men, specifically, those hormone imbalances can lead to patients feeling like they aren’t quite themselves, as though they’ve lost a step. That feeling is a result of Low-T, the symptoms of which include:
- Memory loss
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Poor concentration
- Joint pain
- Decreased strenght
There is a way to fight back against this change. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, is the safest and most effective way of fighting this imbalance.
Since bio-identical hormones are identical to your body’s natural hormones, down to the molecular level, BHRT allows our team to readjust your hormone levels. After testing your levels and determining the best regimen, we can administer the hormone therapy in a number of ways and will select the best method for you. That can include pills, patches, pellets, injections, creams or gels.
Let Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center help get you back on track with BHRT. Contact our offices for more information on men’s health and how we can help you.
Hormone Pellet Therapy
When receiving hormone replacement therapy, it’s important that you are getting the correct delivery method for you. For some patients, that means a daily pill or a gel. However, people receiving those methods tend to get their hormones in short bursts, leading to something called the “roller-coaster effect,” where your hormone levels hit noticeable peaks and valleys.
That method may work for some, but many patients require consistent and prolonged hormone disbursement. Short bursts followed by long droughts might not be sufficient. For those patients, hormone pellet therapy is ideal. This state of the art subcutaneous application places small hormone pellets beneath the skin, which is then absorbed into the body naturally over the course of a month. This means fewer visits to the clinic and no user error, since the patient doesn’t need to worry about taking their prescription.
Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center takes great pride in treating each patient in the way that’s best for their individual case. To find out if hormone pellet therapy is right for you, contact our offices right away to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
DHEA Hormone Replacement Therapy
If you are experiencing fatigue or low energy then you may be suffering from a shortage of dehydroepiandrosterone, commonly referred to as DHEA. DHEA is a men’s health issue and is a hormone. This precursor hormone is the body’s single most abundant and common steroid. It is called a precursor because it is vital to the production of other important hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen.
DHEA is important for regulating a host of the body’s functions. Improper balance in DHEA levels can cause patients to experience adrenal fatigue, with symptoms such as:
- Diminished libido
- Low energy
- Joint pain
- Weakened immune system.
Luckily, the staff at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can help you increase your DHEA levels. By performing DHEA hormone replacement therapy, we can boost your DHEA, thereby restoring your body to its proper functioning and alleviating symptoms.
Therapy begins with the taking of a blood test to determine your current DHEA levels. If a deficit is discovered, DHEA can be administered through the use of a pill to introduce additional DHEA to your system.
DHEA hormone replacement therapy will give your body the weapons it needs to fight against adrenal fatigue.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Headaches/Migraines
There are few things that can have an impact on your daily life quite like a headache. They range from the dull throbbing variety to the sharp and intense versions. Truly severe headaches can even cause disturbances in your vision, keep you from sleeping, and in the case of migraines even ground you completely.
Headaches can result from a variety of causes, such as stress or lack of proper nutrients. These causes can be treated easily. But persistent pain may actually be the result of something much more troublesome, like an imbalance of your body’s own hormones. In these circumstances, you might be able to treat the symptoms but the headaches will persist until you treat the root cause.
Luckily, Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can help you fight these headaches by regulating your hormone levels through the use of hormone replacement therapy. Our knowledgeable staff can provide you with the right mix of hormones in a delivery method that works best for you, whether that be a pill, a gel or a pellet.
Don’t let yourself be sidelined by never ending headaches. Let our men’s health specialists help you. For more information on how hormone replacement therapy can help fight your headaches or migraines, contact our offices today.
Hormones and Weight Gain
Recent research into the field of weight loss has shown that hormones actually play a large role in the way your body’s weight fluctuates. Obviously, proper diet and exercise are incredibly important for weight loss. But hormone levels actually do a lot in providing your body with the necessary energy to perform those exercises. Your body’s hunger sensations are also in part dependent on your hormones. An imbalance of those hormones can mess with the proper functioning of your body, thereby causing you to gain unwanted pounds.
In these instances, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help you get control over your own body, thereby allowing you to lose that unnecessary weight. The specialists at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can help you determine the best combination of hormones to get your body back on track, and have multiple delivery options to suit what works best for you.
The goal is to help our patients regain a body that functions properly, that can properly regulate its cravings and provide the energy necessary to live a healthy life. For more information on how hormone replacement therapy can help you, contact our offices right away.
Hormones and Sex Drive
The body relies on hormones when making the transition from childhood to adolescence. These hormones play a vital role in developing a person’s reproductive systems and in establishing their secondary sex characteristics during puberty. What people don’t often remember is the role that these hormones play in the upkeep of the reproductive system, as well as the vital part they play in sexual health and desire.
The loss of libido is a complex problem, and one that changes from person to person. There is no way to objectively measure sex drive, and the loss of that sex drive can occur for reasons as varied as psychological, environmental, interpersonal or physical issues.
Regardless, one of the most persistent causes is a loss of hormones. For both sexes, that hormone is testosterone. Low testosterone, commonly known as Low-T, can reduce your sex drive, and cause other sexual issues.
In these instances, diminished sex drive can be treated through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. The specialists at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can help boost your testosterone levels, thereby restoring your sex drive. We have multiple delivery methods, such as injections, creams or pellets.
Sex is an important part of our lives, and should not be denied us because of hormone imbalances. Let Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center help you restore your drive. Contact our offices today for more information on how we can assist you.
