Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Men can suffer from a wide range of health concerns as they get older. These issues can cover everything from loss of sexual function to a reduction in energy, along with problems sleeping or maintaining a healthy body weight. What many men don’t realize is that these functions are all governed by hormones; and often, the underlying root of these problems is a hormone imbalance or deficit. At LongevityMed in Raleigh, NC, we provide our patients with access to full hormone replacement therapy (HRT), including testosterone therapy. Our goal is always to help men avoid these hormone-related problems altogether, and to maintain full, robust wellness.
We always begin by taking some lab work. This allows us to get a feel for the patient’s current hormone levels, and to identify some specific areas for therapeutic intervention. Nothing we do is cookie-cutter, and we’ll use the lab work to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. From there, we can administer replacement hormones and testosterone via pellets, or provide at-home, self-administered injections.
An important thing to know about HRT for men is that we use bioidentical hormones; what this means is that the supplements we use are genetically indistinguishable from what’s created naturally, by your body. As such, these HRT treatments help support male health in a natural and holistic way.
HRT for men can provide a wide range of benefits, including improved sexual functioning. In fact, we have had many men tell us that testosterone therapy saved their marriage and dramatically improved their intimate life. Additionally, HRT can help men steer clear of energy loss and other common side effects of aging.
At LongevityMed, we are proud to provide our patients not only with testosterone but also with thyroid therapy, just two of the solutions we can deliver to help you maintain your full vigor.
