Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
We’re asked frequently “Does Testosterone Replacement Therapy Reverses Low T Symptoms?”
We commonly associate the changes that our bodies go through with being “normal aging”, as if these changes are unavoidable. New evidence contradicts this concept. The stresses of modern life certainly can impact how a person feels physically and emotionally. However, men with low testosterone levels causing symptoms such as low energy, muscle loss, a thickening waistline, and a decreased sex drive in many cases experience a reverse in these symptoms when they receive testosterone therapy. Low testosterone (low T) frequently referred to as andropause is a condition that usually develops over time and with increasing age. Low T affects insulin production, the adrenal glands, and thyroid function because they are all part of the endocrine system. Testosterone declines one percent per year after age thirty. Correcting testosterone deficiency with Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) often improves blood sugar (insulin), cortisol (stress response), and thyroid function.
After thorough assessment and testing, low T is treated with once weekly injectable testosterone, and one or two other medicines to promote and to add to your body’s natural production of this vital hormone. Each treatment plan is a customized fit for the exact needs of the patient. The good news is that most men feel increased energy after about a week of therapy. In approximately a month many experience loss of fat, a gain in muscle mass, and improved sexual performance. With all of these improvements, you just might notice an improved mood.
Men can maintain vitality well into their elder years with proper medical management. It all starts with an evaluation by our qualified physician.

2) Blood Draw
We’ll schedule your blood draw as soon as possible. This is a fairly simple procedure; a third party lab will collect 10-12 vials of blood so we can properly evaluate you.
Our doctors will spend 60-90 minutes in consultation with you. They will match your symptoms with your blood work and create a treatment plan. You can start therapy immediately!
Our integrative medicine approach to wellness focuses on body and mind through lifestyle changes and hormonal balancing. You can feel results as early as the first week of treatment. Within 4-6 weeks you can expect your sex hormones to be completely optimized. We’ll assess your progress along the way and make adjustments as needed.
