Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

When men’s hormone levels decline, particularly testosterone, it can cause a variety of negative symptoms. These include diminished libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat, and mood swings. Low testosterone in men is strongly associated with type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and an almost 50% increase in mortality over a seven year period.

With HRT for men, you can replace this missing testosterone, which provides extensive benefits, like:

  • Increased energy
  • Reduced risk of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome
  • Reduced body fat
  • Increased lean body mass and strength
  • Increased libido
  • Improved mood and cognition

To get started, you’ll have an initial consultation and test to see if you qualify for treatment. Then, you’ll meet with your provider to discuss your treatment. 

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

For women, HRT is more complex, involving a symphony of different hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, and even testosterone. An imbalance in these hormones can cause symptoms like loss of libido, unexpected weight gain, forgetfulness, mood swings, changes in the look and feel of your hair and skin, and general fatigue and lack of energy. 

These balances can be restored by supplementing with hormones identical to the ones in your body. Because these are chemically and functionally identical to human hormones, they produce the same physiological responses. Typically, you’ll receive bio-identical estrogen, the so-called “female hormone,” which treats symptoms like mood swings and hot flashes, as well as progesterone, which protects the body against endometrial cancer. Women may receive testosterone as well, which can treat issues with libido and mood.

To get started with HRT, you’ll first fill out a brief medical history and a symptoms questionnaire, as well as have lab work done. Then, you’ll come in for a consultation, where we’ll discuss symptoms, history, lifestyle, and goals, and review your blood work to recommend a course of treatment.
