Low Testosterone Therapy for Men
Testosterone plays a critical role in maintaining youthfulness, alleviating depression and maintaining lean body mass.
Studies have demonstrated that low testosterone in men is strongly associated with metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and an almost 50% increase in mortality over a seven year period.
Restoring testosterone to youthful ranges in men can result in an increase in insulin sensitivity as well as a reduction in total cholesterol, fat mass, waist circumference and pro-inflammatory cytokines associated with atherosclerosis, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome. Testosterone therapy can also significantly improve sexual desire and improve functional capacity.
Testosterone can be effectively administered as a once daily topical cream, a once weekly intramuscular injection, or a subcutaneous pellet that can be replaced once every 4-5 months. Schedule a consultation today to discuss which type of therapy is right for you.
