What is Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men is a type of hormone replacement therapy that helps men deal with hormonal imbalances and deficiencies so they can get back to feeling their best. The benefits of HRT are great, helping men improve their immune systems, cognitive function, weight management, sexual performance and even their emotions. HRT for men uses testosterone, a hormone that helps define male characteristics. The natural levels of testosterone in men starts to decline around the age of 30, and these decreasing levels can cause multiple symptoms. HRT helps restore the imbalances and provides relief of these symptoms.
How Much Does HRT for Men Cost?
HRT cost depends on a multitude of factors, including your baseline testosterone level and the necessary dosage to ensure that you’re within a recommended normal range. Dr. Lodge will assess your symptoms to ensure that you’re a safe candidate for the treatment and will help create an affordable plan that is right for you.
Am I a Candidate for HRT for Men?
Just because you are a male with low testosterone does not automatically mean that you are a candidate for HRT. There are some conditions in which HRT can actually more damage than good, including men with history of prostate cancer. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Lodge or the staff at Cool Springs MD to ensure that it is safe. There may be other methods to help deal with low testosterone, including a proper exercise and diet regimen.
How is HRT for Men Performed?
HRT for men uses hormones produced outside of your body to restore hormonal balances so that you can live your life to the fullest. There are multiple HRT methods including gels, pills, injections, and even implants that can be utilized.
What is Recovery Like After HRT for Men?
HRT is a safe and effective method for men to reverse their symptoms and feel younger. There can be some side effects depending on the dosage and treatment method of HRT, but in most cases, you can resume your usual activities immediately. In the case of pellet therapy, you may have to abstain from vigorous exercise for a few days.
How Long Will HRT Results Last?
HRT results will last for as long as you’re using the hormones. Once you are off of the hormones, your body’s hormone levels will drop back to where they were before the treatment.
