In men, testosterone levels decrease with age, and can be abnormally low at any age. The resulting symptoms include fatigue, erectile dysfunction, low libido, depression, poor sleep, weight gain, and loss of lean muscle mass to name just a few. Fortunately, while those issues are unpleasant, they don’t have to be inevitable. Testosterone therapy can return testosterone levels to the normal range and give you back the energy, vitality, and focus you’ve been missing.
Women Need Testosterone, Too!
We tend to think of testosterone as a “male hormone,” but it plays a critical role in a woman’s health and wellness, too. Women with sub-optimal levels of testosterone experience fatigue, decreased interest in sex, vaginal dryness, hair loss, mood swings, weight gain, depression, anxiety, and decreased mental clarity. Restoring your testosterone level and bringing your hormones in general back into balance can treat these symptoms or prevent them in the first place, allowing you to enjoy a higher quality of life and abundant youthful energy.

Our Comprehensive Approach to Male Hormone Deficiencies
Testosterone isn’t the only hormone that affects a man’s health and wellness. Human growth hormone (HGH) is essential to proper muscle growth, bone density, and cognitive function. After reaching maximum production of HGH when you’re in your teens, your level begins to decline in your twenties. By the time you’re in your sixties, your body is probably producing little if any HGH.
We consider this and other factors in developing a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) plan specific to your needs and goals. And when this treatment is combined with other services we provide, the result is a body that feels and looks noticeably younger, a mind that’s sharper, and an outlook on life that’s brighter.
