As you have gotten older, have you started to notice changes to your everyday health and wellness? Do you feel less like yourself, but you cannot pinpoint what may be causing all of these frustrating changes? Hormones have a constant impact on your overall health and bodily functions, but your levels shift and fluctuate over time. Many men experience a drop in testosterone levels, but testosterone replacement therapy can help! Discover the potential benefits of treatment during a consultation with our team at Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL!
What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment option to restore balance to shifting hormone levels. Low testosterone impacts many men, and it may cause frustrating changes, such as:
- Decrease in sex drive
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Dramatic changes in mood
- Erectile dysfunction
- Feelings of anxiety or depression
- Loss of muscle mass
- Unexplained weight gain
Testosterone replacement therapy may help reduce or better manage these experiences.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
Our testosterone replacement therapy treatments in Florida involve a combined usage of topical testosterone gel and IM injections. While you will apply the topical treatment yourself, the injections are performed in the comfort of our office.
IM injections, or intramuscular injections, are administered on the side of the body in the pelvic area. They are administered deeply into the muscles. This promotes quicker and better absorption of the testosterone as the hormone goes directly into your bloodstream. While you may experience some discomfort at the injection site, you should be able to return to your normal daily activities after the testosterone injection.
Results achieved with testosterone replacement therapy will vary for each person, and it is important to have realistic goals and expectations. It may take some time to enjoy the best results of hormone therapy as your body absorbs and responds to the hormones. Consistent and regular treatment is necessary for the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Testosterone replacement therapy may be beneficial for most generally healthy men who are experiencing negative changes to their health as a result of shifting testosterone levels. It is most often recommended to men who have gone through andropause.
A consultation with our qualified team in Naples can help determine if this hormone therapy treatment is a good fit for you and your lifestyle. As your hormone levels are extremely unique to you, they can also help you develop your personalized treatment plan.
