Low testosterone is a condition that affects aging men. It happens when your level of testosterone, the male sex hormone, diminishes. Testosterone plays a few different roles, including increasing and maintaining your muscle mass, regulating your fertility and sex drive, and aiding the production of red blood cells.
Research shows that declining hormone levels are linked to many medical conditions, including coronary artery disease, osteoporosis, infertility, mood disorders, and sleep disorders. If you recognize signs of low testosterone, you should visit the team at Serenity Rejuvenation Center.
Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers hormone treatments to restore your testosterone, which helps you maintain your vitality, energy, and strength.
Low testosterone can manifest a wide array of symptoms that you might mistake for some other cause at first. Typical symptoms of low testosterone are:
A hormone blood test shows your level of testosterone and can determine whether or not low testosterone is the cause of your symptoms.
Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers men’s health services, including bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for low testosterone. Before you take part in BHRT, the team welcomes you in for an evaluation and lifestyle assessment, complete with a physical examination and lab testing.
The team creates a personalized BHRT treatment plan for you. Bioidentical hormones come from plants but are chemically identical to the hormones your body naturally produces, and there are several ways you can take them.
One of the most common ways to take hormones is with a pellet implanted under your skin. Over time, the pellet gradually releases a consistent dosage of hormones into your bloodstream. It doesn’t come with the hormone fluctuations that can happen with other BHRT methods, like pills or injections.
The team at Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers periodic lab testing throughout BHRT to check in on your hormones and adjust your treatment plan as necessary.
