Testosterone Therapy Chesterfield MO
Isn’t it about time that you start feeling like yourself again? Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone that helps men with fat distribution, bone density, red blood cell production, sperm count, sex drive and overall strength. Hypogonadism, on the other hand, is a men’s health issue where their body fails to produce of hormone, usually due to a medical problem with the pituitary gland or testicles. Lower levels of testosterone (Low-T) is easily overlooked or mistaken for other medical conditions. Symptoms of low-T can include but are not limited to low sex drive, loss of energy, poor concentration, depression, hair loss and weight gain. Our goal at P.R.I.M.E. Health Centers is to design a testosterone therapy that helps you live a healthier and happier life without impaired sexual function.
Replacement Strategies for Low-T
Depending upon the particular patient, testosterone therapy typically involves replacement strategies to boost natural hormone production to normal levels. Although many men see testosterone levels decline with age, how this happens is still unclear, so it is crucial to rule out other medical conditions, chronic diseases and acute illnesses. Unfortunately, “hormone replacement therapy” has earned a poor reputation as a drug used for body building and improvement in athletic abilities. So, a thorough examination and accurate diagnosis is needed to develop corrective strategies for the best outcomes. For example, if your fatigue and lack of energy is due a Vitamin B-12 deficiency, our staff can provide B-12 injections to boost energy or support your weight loss efforts.
Optimize Your Levels for a Better Sexual Response
When your testosterone levels are optimized, your body will typically respond with a better sexual response and an increased desire for sex. Although most men experience a natural decline in testosterone as they age, researchers have recently found, it is not just too little testosterone that is a bad thing; too much testosterone also causes problems. A study published by The Endocrine Society in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism concluded that older men with testosterone levels in the middle (in other words balanced) tended to live healthier, longer lives than those with high or low testosterone levels. Nonetheless, restoring hormonal balance may help correct multiple problems. To learn more about what your body is trying to tell you, call 636-735-3577 for a Same Day Appointment.
