The human body is packed with glands that produce and secrete hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers which have intense effects on our biological functions, like growth, immune function, metabolism, and sexual reproduction. A state of hormonal balance is necessary for the body to survive and function optimally.
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and is responsible for the development of male reproductive structures and sexual characteristics, including sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution, muscle size and strength, and the distribution and growth of body hair.
It happens to every man. Whatever you do, testosterone levels naturally decrease starting around age 25. Unlike women, men do not have a clear-cut signpost marking the transition into andropause. Testosterone deficiency, also known as male hypogonadism, occurs when the body’s sex glands fail to produce enough Testosterone. About 4 in 10 men have hypogonadism by age 45. Lifestyle factors like chronic illness, alcohol use, stress, trauma, and obesity can also contribute to low t levels and can cause hormones to become out of balance. Hormone imbalance affects men of all ages and has a direct effect on overall health. Many men are unaware that hormone levels are directly related to many of the aggravating symptoms they live with every day, including:
Researchers are learning that declining levels of testosterone in men contribute to a decline in general health. If left untreated, low t levels can put men at risk for cardiovascular health issues and can also lead to worsening of chronic health conditions like obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and diabetes.
Symptoms and effects of low testosterone levels are often accepted as signs of aging, but bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men can reduce and sometimes eliminate these effects. Testosterone replacement therapy will help increase your testosterone levels to help you increase your sex drive, feel stronger, and more energized.
TRT treatments can help you boost testosterone levels and improve your performance and overall well-being in many ways including:
The effects of testosterone replacement therapy may differ depending on your overall health, your age, and your current t levels.
Aging is inevitable – but low t related symptoms can be treated with hormone replacement therapy, so you look and feel your best again!
At Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach, VA, we are committed to providing convenient, safe, and effective men’s wellness therapies. Our goal is to help men of all ages optimize and improve their health and vitality.
Fountain of You MD believes testosterone replacement therapy should be safe, easily accessible, convenient, and affordable for all men with low testosterone levels. To keep your health a priority during the COVID-19 pandemic, we now offer in-office or at-home low testosterone therapies.
In our Virginia Beach hormone health clinic, low testosterone is diagnosed after a thorough health assessment with our licensed physician and testosterone expert, Jeffrey Arbuckle M.D., and a simple blood test to confirm your diagnosis.
The results from the lab work will help us determine where your testosterone levels are and where they should be to help you feel better. Your personalized treatment recommendations will be dependent on your blood work results, medical background, and wellness goals.
We treat men with low testosterone levels with a comprehensive combination of lifestyle changes and high quality, time-released intramuscular injections of bioidentical hormones. Our men’s health expert, Dr. Arbuckle, only prescribes bioidentical hormone injections because transdermal (through the skin) therapy is not absorbed well in men and is outrageously expensive. Other clinics prescribe patches, pellets, or intranasal (through the nose) therapies. Because of irritating side effects and ineffective absorption, we only use safe and effective bioidentical hormone injections. Your medication can be administered in office by our medical staff or from the comfort of your own home by self-injection.
Our personalized treatment plans are specially formulated to help you lose weight, feel more energized, and retain your sense of vitality. We specialize in safe and effective therapies to help improve and optimize your testosterone levels to help get you back to enjoying your life again.
Many men report feeling like their younger selves once they start testosterone replacement therapy. Testosterone levels will begin to rise as a result of therapy. Vast improvements are typically noted as soon as two months of continuous therapy and continue to improve over time (although results may vary).
