Some of the Most Common Questions Men Have About Hormone Replacement Therapy
Why Do I Need Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Every man experiences a gradual decline in hormone production as he ages. Beginning at age 30, his body manufactures less and less testosterone, losing 1-2% per year until leveling off somewhere between 40-55 years of age, signaling the onset of Andropause…the male equivalent of Menopause. Symptoms frequently include:
- lack of sexual desire
- weight gain
- loss of muscle mass
- Lack of Clarity
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT is the restoration of proper hormone levels through the use of hormones that are identical in structure to those naturally produced in the body. Recent studies have shown that hormone replacement with synthetic hormones (hormones that are similar to but different in structure to our natural hormones) can lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. At InShapePlus we only use Bio- Identical hormones, thereby reducing the risk of dangerous biochemical reactions and health problems that can occur with synthetic hormones.
What is Testosterone Therapy?
Treatments involve small, infrequent muscular injections of testosterone. The hormone is released into the bloodstream over time in a safe and controlled manner. Dosages are tightly controlled by yourInShapePlus health provider to ensure safe and maximum effectiveness. The hormones are compounded accordance with the highest industry standards, and prescribed specifically for your needs, replicating the hormones your body already produces.
