HRT for MenIn Knoxville, TN

TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (TRT) | HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (HRT) | FOR MEN

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) or Testosterone Replacement therapy in men with all the options of Testosterone Injections or Pellets

Most men over the age of 40 begin to experience hormone imbalance. There is a natural decline in hormone production with age. For example, production may decline by 50 percent by age 50. There are also lifestyle and environmental factors that may accelerate that decline. As we age, we start to experience a multitude of symptoms resulting from a decrease in our natural hormone production and levels. Men each have their own set of issues that can result from hormone deterioration and imbalance.

What is HRT for Men?

MAINTAINING A HEALTHY SEX DRIVE

Hormone Replacement Therapy for men uses bioidentical to supplement the hormones you create naturally. Male hormones are essential for regulating metabolism, promoting growth and cell replacement, and maintaining a healthy sex drive.

Evaluation of Low Testosterone At RMD

Your provider works with you to determine whether your low testosterone is due to a natural decrease such as aging or other factors affecting your testosterone levels. At our Knoxville office, our evaluation includes the following:

  • We draw blood work in the office—Our blood panels include all needed data points for a clear hormonal picture.
  • We determine deficiencies to then individualize a treatment plan.

Our goal is to optimize your hormones and improve symptoms.

Treatment Options

  • Injections — Your RMD provider injects testosterone into the muscles of your buttocks every two to three weeks based on your treatment plan.
  • Pellets — Measuring only three millimeters by nine millimeters, your RMD provider implants them under your skin for a slow release of testosterone over three to six months.
  • Topicals — your RMD provider will provide you with a topical testosterone gel to apply each day to your shoulders, arms, or abdomen.

We have all available testosterone treatments!

How Andropause Affects Men

Hormone therapy programs aren’t only for women. Men experience a more gradual loss of hormones, mainly testosterone.

The result is andropause, known as “male menopause.” Andropause results in feeling like you have lost your competitive edge, and life seems to be an uphill battle. HRT can assist in relieving these symptoms and making life fun again. It also helps protect against the deterioration of organs that results from declining hormone levels. Symptoms of hormone imbalance in men or andropause may include:

Muscle Loss Weight Gain Fatigue Sleep Problems
Gynecomastia Hot Flashes in Men Night Sweats in Men Lower Sex Drive
Irritability Depression Hair Loss Erectile Dysfunction
Urinary Problems Memory Loss Concentration Loss Dry Skin/Hair

Andropause & Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Andropause is male menopause.

A gradual decline in testosterone can start in the 30s. According to the US Census Bureau, 4-5 million men suffer from symptoms of low testosterone. But it is estimated that only five to ten percent will seek treatment. By 50, 50 percent of men will have low testosterone by 60, 60 percent, and by age 70, 70 percent. Fortunately, the best news is that these hormone losses and imbalances are easily correctable. Dr. Durst and the providers at RMD are extensively trained in andropause and its treatment using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. They do a full hormone blood panel that includes Total testosterone and offers the free and active form often not tested in Traditional medicine.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Just like low testosterone, Erectile dysfunction is a widespread condition.

The first sign of Erectile Dysfunction is loss of a morning erection. If this is happening to you, then you should make an appointment at RevitalyzeMD (RMD) and have your hormones checked and optimized if necessary. Many men are not aware that there are many ways to improve ED. Eighty percent of the time, ED is from a blood flow issue. The vessels that supply blood to the penis are small, so it is a measure of vascular health when erection strength decreases. Changes with Erectile Dysfunction include loss of morning erections, loss of strength of an erection, inability to maintain an erection through full intercourse, and inability to maintain an erection for intercourse.

Testosterone may improve these changes. When any of these changes happen, we have a plethora of services at RMD to help improve blood flow to the penis and improve the quality of erections. Please visit our Sexual Medicine pages for more information on these services:
