Testosterone Therapy

How Do You Know When Levels Are Too Low?Although it's normal for testosterone levels to drop as men age, low testosterone can affect a man's health. My Anti-Aging MD can help restore your Testosterone Health. In many ways, testosterone is the stuff that makes men men. The rush of new testosterone in puberty builds muscle and bone, deepens the voice, and revs up the sex drive. Throughout a man's life, testosterone maintains his male characteristics.

Testosterone levels decline steadily after age 30. The decline is relatively small, at an average rate of about 1% to 2% percent per year. By middle age and older, virtually all men experience some decline in testosterone -- but only a small percentage of aging men have levels far below those considered normal for their age.
What is Low Testosterone? Low testosterone is defined as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter of blood. The symptoms of low testosterone include low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, mood problems, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Of all men with below-normal testosterone levels, about one-half to two-thirds report symptoms.

Unlike a woman's menopause, when estrogen levels plummet over months to very low levels, men's "andropause" is a gradual decline of testosterone levels over years. The effects of low testosterone can be insidious, even go unnoticed.

Some men with low testosterone levels have symptoms without recognizing them, Herbst says. "They may still have a sex drive, but not realize how much it's declined," she says.

Men with symptoms of low testosterone can have significant impairment in quality of life. Current medical thinking is "these men should be treated with testosterone replacement," Herbst says.

Low testosterone can be replaced by using a daily skin gel, patches worn on the skin, orally disintegrating tablets, or injections. The general recommendations are to raise the blood testosterone level only into the normal range.

Our BHRT program for men is designed to help men reverse many of these symptoms and recapture some of their youthful attributes and functions.


My Anti-Aging MD specializes in medically supervised HGH Therapy, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Testosterone Therapy treatments that employ the latest advancements in treatment protocols.

Starting around age 30 hormones decline and individuals may experience symptoms of a low testosterone. If so you may be a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

What are Bioidentical Hormones? 

Bioidentical hormones, also known as natural hormones, are substances that have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced by the human body, and they also create the same physiologic response. Hormones are NOT drugs. They are naturally occurring substances that are found in all humans since the time of conception. BHRT replaces hormones at a "physiologic" level that is not harmful to the body. Physiologic levels never exceed what the individual has already been accustomed to in his or her younger years.

Are Bioidentical Hormones FDA Approved?

We use FDA approved bioidentical hormones (natural hormones) whenever possible; however, when a dosage or strength that the patient requires is not commercially available, we use a compounding pharmacy to prepare an individualized prescription. Compounding pharmacists must comply with the regulation of the state boards of pharmacy, and they have access to the highest grade bulk ingredients as well as state-of-the art equipment used to accurately prepare hormone preparations. Close monitoring of the patient by our exclusive practice helps to promote maximum benefits and safety.
