The Truth About Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy sometimes gets a bad rap. We’ve heard it all. “I’m not going to take testosterone. It’ll just make me angry.” “I don’t need it. I don’t have any problem satisfying my wife.” “I don’t need help building muscle.”  You name it, we’ve heard it. But, hormone replacement therapy is so much different than what you may hear. It’s time you hear the truth about hormone replacement therapy.

Our patients come to us for so many reasons. The number one reason someone signs onto a program with us is to help increase their energy levels. After a thorough review of bloodwork and determining if you are a candidate for TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) and you begin therapy, one of the first things you will notice is an increase in energy. More often than not, men suffering with chronic fatigue tend to have lower testosterone levels. Once we are able to get those hormones in check, they immediately begin to feel more energized and can think clearly. Say GOODBYE to brain fog! Bet you didn’t hear that about hormone therapy!

TRT is not always about what’s going on in the sheets. Believe it or not, a very small percentage of patients come to us with libido issues or symptoms related to erectile dysfunction. Yes, low testosterone is a common cause of both these issues, but low levels are usually detectable with other complaints, such as fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, muscle loss and more. Of course one of the benefits of TRT is usually improved sexual stamina, but ultimately, that should not be the only reason you sign onto a program.

Hormone replacement shouldn’t be temporary. Prospective patients will contact us and ask, “how long do I have to do this for?” Well, the answer is forever. Think about it. If your body was making enough testosterone, don’t you think you wouldn’t need to supplement it? Sure, some people take it for a few months, but soon after they realize it’s not a fad, but really is a permanent lifestyle change for promoting better health and wellness.

TRT is not a one-size fits all approach. There are hundreds of clinics in our area and thousands throughout the US. But what sets us apart from the rest? Our program is JUST FOR YOU! We meet with you, understand how you’re feeling and analyze your bloodwork. From there, we put you on a program that is designed for you and can be tweaked based off how YOU FEEL. Sure, anyone can write you a script for testosterone, but really dialing you into the right levels for you is the most important thing a clinic can do for you. A normal range for one person may not be a normal range for you. So, don’t sit there and compare numbers, it doesn’t work like that.

See, TRT and hormone replacement therapy really isn’t all those things you thought you may have heard. If you think you may be a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy, click here to take our low T quiz.
