Men’s Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical HRT for Men
As men get older, there is a study decline in their level of testosterone, while estrogen level climb up. Studies reveal that the testosterone level for men who are 75yrs old is approximately two-thirds the level for men at 25. It’s actually believed that men lose 1-2% of their Testosterone level every year. The decline is even faster in men with highly stressful jobs and lifestyles. While most men experience a gradual decline in hormone levels, some go through a sudden decrease.
A study done by Yale Medicine Urology shows that testosterone deficiency is not limited to middle-aged men but also in adolescents, and young men in the US, that are attributed to multiple causes, particularly diabetes and obesity. Any unneeded extra weight a man carries around their belly is not good. Because fat cells have an enzyme called aromatase that converts testosterone to estrogen.
When a man has higher estrogen levels in their body, their hormonal system tells the body to slow down its production of testosterone. Less testosterone tends to mean more belly fat. Creating a vicious cycle. Low testosterone (low T) and higher than normal estrogen levels in men lead to a myriad of symptoms, including:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Reduced libido
- Decreased muscle mass
- Weight gain
- Cardiovascular health problems
- And more
Understanding the Optimal Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
At Towne Lake Family Pharmacy, our compounding pharmacists utilize pure testosterone USP, a natural testosterone, to compound customized dosages to meet your individualized needs. Because excessive doses can lead to high testosterone levels and adverse side effects, we work closely with your physician to monitor and achieve the best possible results for you.
Our compounded preparations have several advantages. Unlike other preparations that can lead to skin irritation, our preparations utilize highly absorbable proprietary creams and gels that are not commercially available. Daily administration of testosterone minimizes side effects and provides a specific dose the body can utilize better than the conventional treatment with long-lasting injection. Long-lasting injections cause unnecessary peaks(high) and troughs(low), putting a strain on the body compared to the steady-state dosages available in the creams and gels we compound.
Benefits of Male Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Because no two people are alike, hormone replacement therapy should be based on lab hormone levels. While there are commercial products available for low T, many of them fail to achieve the desired therapeutic level. Many of them cause skin irritations and are expensive. However, bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy addresses the underlying cause of the problem while at the same restoring vitality of men.
