Hormone replacement therapy for men can greatly improve sex drive and lift mood. Low testosterone symptoms can be vague, and Ricardo Revilla, MD, can treat their underlying cause instead of masking them with prescription medications. To schedule your hormone therapy consultation at the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance in Key Biscayne, Florida, call the office or book online today.
Hormone replacement therapy for men is a way of increasing testosterone levels, which decline naturally as you age. Having low testosterone can lead to a lot of inconvenient or downright disruptive symptoms, which, over time, can have a major impact on your well-being.
Your testosterone levels start decreasing as early as your 20s, but that doesn’t mean you need hormone replacement therapy at that time or possibly ever. Instead, you should consider scheduling a consultation at the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance if your symptoms disrupt your sleep, sex life, concentration, or mood.
Testosterone, the male sex hormone, plays many roles in bodily functions and processes. It helps you build muscle mass, develop sexually, metabolize the food you eat, and maintain bone density. That’s why a significant drop in levels can have such an impact on your life.
Hormone replacement therapy for men carries many potential benefits for those with particularly low testosterone. Significant benefits of hormone replacement therapy for men include:
By taking bioidentical hormones, you may reduce your need for various prescription medications that treat only the symptoms and not the underlying cause, which is low testosterone. Dr. Revilla can help you go over the full list of possible hormone therapy benefits when you come in for your initial consultation at the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance.
At the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance, Dr. Revilla offers BioTE® bioidentical hormones in the form of pellets, which he places under your skin. Over the course of a few months, those pellets release a steady and consistent stream of testosterone directly into your bloodstream.
Unlike other methods of male hormone replacement, pellets do not cause your hormone levels to fluctuate irregularly. You don’t have to worry about taking or applying your hormones daily, and you don’t need to visit the office for 52-104 injections over the course of a single year.
Synthetic hormone shots can also increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, and pulmonary embolism. Bioidentical hormone pellets don’t carry that same risk.
