Hormone Replacement For Men?​

Did you know? We also do testosterone replacement for men. Testosterone production decreases 1-1.5% a year after age 30. By the age of 60, a man’s testosterone production may only be 60% of that in their 20s.  

Signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency:  

  • Change in attitude and mood  
  • Fatigue  
  • Loss in sex drive and potency  
  • Loss of physical agility  
  • Loss of energy  
  • Depression  
  • Insomnia 
  • Lack of motivation  
  • Muscle loss  
  • Decreased strength and physical performance  
  • Central obesity  
  • Insulin resistance  
  • Erectile dysfunction

 

If you are a woman experiencing any listed symptoms or a man experiencing 3 or more of these symptoms, it may be beneficial to get your hormone levels checked.
