Natural Testosterone

Replacement is central to the treatment of all facets of Andropause. Testosterone is responsible for the average growth and development of male sex organs and the maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. It is the primary androgenic hormone. The term “testosterone” is often used when referring to numerous synthetic derivatives and natural bio-identical testosterone. Proper monitoring of laboratory values and clinical response are essential when prescribing testosterone replacement therapy.

Creating a Customized Treatment Plan:

The physician creates a treatment plan designed to restore the patient’s health based on hormone testing results. The treatment may include a prescription for Testosterone, compounded according to the patient’s specific needs. There are different dosage forms available to assist physicians in their decision making for each patient.

Medical Follow-Up for Treatment:

Once you start treatment, be sure to keep your prescriber abreast of your symptoms and if you experience any adverse effects. It may be necessary to retest the hormone levels from time to time, as many situations in life can impact our hormone levels. Your practitioner will be able to increase or decrease your dosages to keep you feeling your best.

Off-The-Shelf Testosterone Supplements Offer Limited Relief

As more men learn about the benefits of male hormone replacement, more and more hormonal supplements are turning up in the marketplace. Too often, however, these supplements are the mass-produced, one-size-fits-all variety that does not consider the user’s individual needs.

Working with your physician, we can tailor your prescription to the exact strength and dosage form you require.

Types of Compounded Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Ideal testosterone replacement therapy produces and maintains physiologic serum concentrations of the hormone and its active metabolites without significant side effects or safety concerns. Several different types of testosterone replacement are currently prescribed, including injectable, sublingual and transdermal options.

  • Intramuscular injection- Testosterone is frequently used in parenteral preparations that provide a safe means of hormone replacement. In men, intramuscular injection is generally sufficient to produce supranormal serum testosterone levels initially. Fluctuations in testosterone levels may yield variations in libido, sexual function, energy, and mood.
  • Sublingual testosterone, known as a troche, is placed under the tongue. It has a quick onset and a lower absorption rate as compared to other routes of administration.
  • Transdermal therapy can be made in a cream or gel that is rubbed on the skin’s surface. Best route of administration since transdermal has a steady state release and dosing is flexible with this option.

Recognizing ED

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. It’s the most common sex problem that men report to their doctor. If you have it, you have plenty of company—more than 30 million men in the U.S. alone. Many conditions, like diabetes and heart disease, increase your chances of having ED. Other conditions include obesity, injuries to nerves, excessive alcohol intake, and certain medical treatments, such as prostate surgery or radiation treatment for cancer. There are also medications that can affect ED, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications.

If you have erection trouble from time to time, there’s no need for concern. If your ED is persistent, however, it’s time to call your doctor. See your doctor if you have persistent trouble getting or keeping an erection, reduced sexual desire, concerns about your erections, experiencing sexual problems, diabetes, heart disease, or symptoms associated with ED.
