Testosterone Replacement Therapy: Turning Back the Biological Clock

 

Essence MD Offers Personalized Testosterone Replacement Therapy Protocols to Patients Looking to Restore Their Health and Vitality

Essence MD recognizes the importance of having your hormones balanced and at optimal levels to achieve greater health and quality of life. However, we understand that while many people want to feel better – they may not know exactly what it takes to achieve optimal wellness. 

Our hormones play a major role in virtually every process within our bodies. As chemical messengers, they are the catalysts to many metabolic reactions that help us produce energy, absorb and utilize nutrients, build and repair tissues, and more. Once these hormone levels start to decline, we start seeing bodily systems slow down in function. 

For men, testosterone plays a major role in their health, virility, vitality, and even their appearance. Testosterone Replacement Therapy achieves miraculous results in many of our patients. Aging is a natural process. However, that does not mean that we cannot use science and medicine to slow down this process and improve patient outcomes. 

What is Testosterone and Why is it Important? 

Testosterone is an anabolic hormone that is natural to the body. It is considered by many as the ‘male hormone’ given that men have much higher testosterone levels than women – and this hormone is responsible for many masculinizing effects. Studies display that this hormone also plays a major role in wound healing and tissue regeneration. However, this is assuming that the person’s testosterone is at optimal levels. 

The Variance in Testosterone Levels 

Individual testosterone levels may vary quite a bit depending on age, genetics, and lifestyle factors like sleep and your diet. Testosterone spikes during puberty, generally peaking at between 18-20 and then declining gradually – at about a rate of 1% per year. While this doesn’t seem like much – most men feel it catching up to them by about age 30. 

Symptoms of Low Testosterone 

Many people attribute their symptoms to aging or stress. They accept it as a natural part of the aging process and they throw in the towel. They feel tired, they lack physical strength, and they throw in the towel. However, we’re here to tell you that this is not a normal part of aging and that you deserve better. Do you have low testosterone? Here are some of the symptoms:

 

  • Reduction of muscle mass – Testosterone positively influences the amount of muscle mass you carry. 
  • Increased fat mass – Androgens have a fat-burning effect. Testosterone is an androgenic hormone. Hence, as your androgen levels decline, your body stores fat more easily. 
  • Lack of energy – Individuals with low testosterone levels experience decreased energy levels and motivation to tackle routine activities. 
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Poor wound healing 

I Have Symptoms, But My Doctor Says My Levels Are Normal – Now What?

Many doctors are hesitant to prescribe testosterone replacement therapy due to misconceptions about this form of treatment or simply due to ignorance on the matter. Additionally, the range for a ‘normal’ testosterone level varies quite a bit. There is some variance with the numbers depending on the laboratory you work with and their reference ranges, but most testosterone levels ranging from 300-1100 ng/dl are considered ‘normal’. 

Now, if you’re on the higher end of that – then you shouldn’t be experiencing symptoms. However, if you’re on the lower end of what’s considered normal and you’re experiencing symptoms, then you’re a perfect candidate for testosterone replacement therapy. 

Many doctors refuse to prescribe this therapy because they simply do not possess the knowledge and experience in managing their patients on this therapy. Testosterone replacement therapy under the guidance of an experienced medical practitioner is a safe and effective treatment for patients looking to restore a bit of their youth and vigor. 

The team of medical experts at Essence MD possesses over 25 years of experience in working closely with patients and monitoring their health. Our comprehensive plans include routine blood work to ensure healthy biomarkers, quality testosterone products, and ancillaries. Each patient consults with our doctor quarterly to review their blood work and address any concerns with their therapies. When managed effectively, this is a very safe and powerful treatment.
