What is male hormone replacement?

Male hormone replacement, also known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), is an anti-aging treatment that introduces naturally sourced hormones into your system to restore balance. Hormones play many roles inside your body and even a minor imbalance can lead to major discomfort. You might experience symptoms of a hormone imbalance for a long time before you figure out the cause. 

Men’s health is largely influenced by their hormones, particularly a hormone called testosterone. Testosterone is a hormone that drives male development and growth. It influences your body hair growth, your libido, your muscle mass, and other important factors. 

A simple, hormone blood test can tell you if your hormones are imbalanced and can suggest whether or not you can benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Your Altimate Care and Services, LLC, provider customizes your treatment according to your body’s requirements. 

How can male hormone replacement help me?

Low testosterone is a prevalent condition in aging men but can also be the result of testicular injuries, certain health conditions, and emotional stress. Replacing your testosterone with bioidentical hormones can alleviate common low testosterone symptoms like:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Increased body fat
  • Reduced muscle mass and strength
  • Depression
  • Body hair loss 
  • Gynecomastia
  • Irritability and mood swings

In addition, men’s hormone replacement therapy might improve your sleep cycle and boost your energy. 

How does male hormone replacement work?

Depending on the severity of your hormone imbalance, your provider at Altimate Care and Services, LLC, may recommend hormone replacement in the form of oral supplements, topical creams, injections, or pellets. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a popular method of replacing testosterone. These supplemental hormones come from natural plant sources instead of being manufactured in a lab. They’re structurally identical to the hormones your body naturally produces and can interact with your hormone receptors just the same.

Bioidentical pellets are placed under the skin of your buttocks or hip. The effects of the pellets may last anywhere from 4-5 months* before needing to be replaced.
