Testosterone Replacement Therapy

As men age, their testosterone levels gradually decline, leading to a range of symptoms collectively known as andropause. Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a safe, medically supervised treatment that can help men suffering from these symptoms. This treatment includes an initial Medical Team consultation and a complete blood panel test to review your testosterone levels and assess overall bodily function.

What To Expect

01. Consultation

We begin by collecting in-depth blood work to get a clear picture of your overall health and hormone levels. This is so we can identify causes of your symptoms and see if you qualify for certain treatments such as Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

Common signs of hormone deficiency:

  • Lack of motivation
  • Decreased strength
  • Loss of height
  • Low libido
  • Insomnia & poor quality sleep
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Loss of mass
  • Slow exercise recovery
  • Headaches
  • Lack of morning erections

02. Preparation

Since hormone levels tend to vary and are generally highest in the morning, blood testing should be done before 10:00 a.m., and requires 12 hours of fasting. Once we have received your lab results, one of our medical professionals will go over your levels to evaluate whether your levels are needing adjusting or not. We take a serious approach to screening and prevention to help you maintain optimal health and well-being. We always offer our clients personalized testing with detailed explanations for your results, to help you better understand your personal patterns, and assist your health accordingly.

03. Procedure

Once preparations are complete, you begin the TRT procedure according to the treatment plan devised during the consultation. Depending on your specific needs and preferences, you may administer bioidentical hormones in various forms. This could involve applying topical creams or gels to the skin, taking oral capsules or troches, or undergoing pellet implantation. The hormones are typically administered in cycles or according to a prescribed schedule to maintain consistent hormone levels and optimize therapeutic effectiveness. We closely monitor your progress and may adjust dosages or formulations as necessary to achieve optimal results.
