Testosterone Therapy: Is it safe?

Posted June 13, 2018 in Anti-Aging Medicine, Hormone Replacement Therapy, Lifestyle Management, Male Menopause (Low Testosterone)

With advances in hormone therapy technology, come controversy about whether it’s safe. Before opting for treatment, it’s important that you learn more about hormone therapy and the doctor you are entrusting your treatment with. With hormone therapy it’s not only about looking younger, it’s about feeling younger too! While aging causes us to be concerned with our physical appearance, Dr. Berger believes in treating patients inside and out for a comprehensive anti-aging solution. Dr. Berger offers an Age Management Concierge program that helps patients who have low testosterone to improve their health, regain balance, and establish a plan for overall wellness.

Low-T & Andropause

In short, Andropause is essentially the male version of menopause. Andropause is identified by a decline in testosterone levels in aging men. While this is less clearly defined than a female’s menopause, it still happens around the same time as women. Andropause can affect men as early as 45-50 but shows up more dramatically after 70 years of age.

Symptoms of Andropause can be quite unpleasant so if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it might be time to contact Rejuvalife.

  • Loss of muscle definition
  • Mental health changes (i.e. anxiety and depression)
  • Sexual dysfunction

Low T Therapy

Before starting hormone treatments in any patient, Dr. Berger likes to perform through health history examinations as well as some diagnostic tests for our team to create a customized hormone treatment plan to address the Andropause symptoms that you’re experiencing. Once your customized plan is determined, the hormone replacement can be administered via a pellet implant or injection.

The first step to treating any kind of hormone imbalance is performing a variety of tests. This helps Dr. Berger to get a good idea of your current state of health. He will also do a thorough interview with you about your medical history. Once your baseline is established, Dr. Berger can then work with you to develop a customized treatment plan. This treatment plan may consist of some hormone replacement therapy or wellness programs to help you manage the symptoms and gradually reduce them with positive changes.
