Hypogonadism (Testosterone Deficiency)
In men, hypogonadism is a condition in which the testes produce a less than normal amount of testosterone, the male hormone. When too little testosterone is present, men tend to undergo a drop in sexual desire and performance. They may also experience depression, fatigue, loss of motivation and osteoporosis. The size and strength of their muscles may diminish and their body hair may become sparse. These symptoms are not specific to testosterone deficiency, however, some men with hypogonadism often don’t recognize that they have a medical problem that is treatable.
Testosterone injectable and cream have both proven benefits in hormone replacement therapy, each has distinct advantages. Testosterone cream provides a non-invasive method of application along with a more consistent level of testosterone absorption. The cream is applied twice daily, in the morning and before bedtime. We recommend that you use the testosterone cream for eight consecutive weeks, then take two weeks off. During the two weeks off interval, we recommend that you administer HCG therapy. It is recommended that you follow this cycle throughout the duration of your prescription.
Physicians are witnessing an explosion of interest in testosterone replacement therapy for both men and women. This is due in part to medical recognition of the condition of andropause – which has been described as being the male counterpart of menopause and is precipitated by hypogonadism, or testosterone deficiency.
The primary reason, however, seems to be the growing awareness that testosterone, as with other hormones, declines with age and that such declining levels can result in serious physical and mental health problems for both sexes.
Many of the symptoms that we have come to accept as part of ‘normal’ aging are the result of a decline in testosterone levels. Such symptoms, while not necessarily specific to low testosterone levels, include decreased sex drive and performance, depression, fatigue, loss of muscle size and strength, increase in body fat, osteoporosis, and a lessened sense of well-being. The good news is that hormone replacement therapy has proven effective in halting and even reversing many of these conditions. The following overview is presented to help you better understand the role of testosterone in anti-aging and overall health and well-being.
Testosterone replacement therapy or supplementation can play a vital role in helping to preserve and restore sexual function as well as in halting and even reversing many of the bio-markers of aging. Contraindications are few, and with proper medical screening and correct dosages, adverse side effects can be eliminated. Of particular note is the fact that testosterone replacement therapy for women can produce results similar to those experienced by men, including enhanced libido, decreased body fat, and increased bone density. In addition, testosterone enhances the function of estrogen.Leave a reply →
