Testosterone is the main hormone that gives men their sex drives and masculine aspects. Low T affects a man in almost every way. Our experienced healthcare providers offer personalized testosterone replacement therapy for men in Jupiter, Wellington and Palm Beach County, FL, and communities throughout the United States.
What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone replacement therapy is an intervention that our healthcare providers recommend for men who are experiencing symptoms of low T. In addition to sexual function, testosterone helps with muscle development, red blood cells, fat metabolism, and other functions. Low T leaves a man feeling drained, both physically and emotionally.
How Much Does Testosterone Replacement Therapy Cost?
We offer consultations for men who are interested in our low testosterone treatment. You will work closely with our providers to develop a personalized treatment plan that works for your unique needs and lifestyle. After you decide to proceed with treatment for low T, we explain the costs so that you can plan accordingly.
What Are the Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone is as important to a man’s body as estrogen is to a woman’s body. Low T may cause mysterious symptoms and affect your sex life. Testosterone replacement therapy balances your hormones so you feel energetic, focused, and healthy.
Am I a Candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Signs of low T are:
- Brittle or weak bones
- Low oxygen levels caused by too few red blood cells
- Poor muscle mass or weakness
- Little to no libido
- Mood swings
- Pockets of fat on the body that cannot be reduced with diet and exercise (typically in the belly area)
- Enlarged male breasts
- Low sperm count (may contribute to reproductive issues)
- Fatigue, depression, and difficulty sleeping
Some of these symptoms are associated with other medical conditions, so you should be evaluated by our healthcare providers or staff to ensure that there is no underlying medical issue.
What Should I Expect from Low Testosterone Treatment?
We start your low testosterone treatment with a series of blood tests to measure how much testosterone is in your body. Based on our findings, we may recommend supplements and prescription medications to increase hormone levels. Finding the right dosage can take some time, so you should monitor your body for any improvement or new symptoms. This process does not happen overnight, as each man is different, and having too much testosterone is detrimental as well.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can you stop testosterone replacement therapy?
Yes, once you start testosterone replacement therapy, it is possible to stop. When considering discontinuing your therapy, it’s important you talk to our medical team about how to wean off the testosterone properly. Doing so too quickly on your own may produce unwanted side effects.
What is the best testosterone replacement therapy?
Testosterone replacement therapy is available in many different forms including a skin patch, oral pill, topical gel, injection or implant. While there are many benefits to each type of testosterone replacement therapy, we believe the best type of testosterone replacement therapy for you depends on your personal preference. Talk to your doctor about which treatment option is best for your lifestyle.
Is testosterone a steroid?
While yes, testosterone is a steroid hormone, it is not the type of supplemental performance-enhancing drug you think of when you think of athletes or bodybuilders. Testosterone is the main naturally-occurring anabolic steroid hormone in the body that promotes muscle building and is responsible for male traits such as facial hair and a deep voice.
How safe is testosterone therapy?
With the right medical supervision, testosterone therapy is a completely safe and beneficial solution to symptoms caused by depleting hormones. Make sure to check in with our medical team regularly to ensure testosterone therapy is still a good option to manage symptoms caused by your hormonal fluctuations.
Does testosterone cause hair loss?
No, testosterone replacement therapy does not have hair loss. While some speculate the derivatives of testosterone cause hair follicles to die, there have been no real studies linking testosterone replacement therapy with hair loss in men.
