Male Hormone Restoration

 
Did you know that ALL men lose about 1-4% of their testosterone supply starting around the age of 22 to 25, when testosterone peaks?  Not some men, but all men, suffer this decline.
By the time a male is 50 years old, he has, by definition, lost around half of his optimal and peak levels that he had when vibrant, healthier, and full of vigor!
Men, did you know that you can get this healthy, physiologically optimal level back, with today’s bio-identical testosterone?  Ahh, but you don’t think you need it, do you?  Ask yourself these questions, and if any one is true, chances are you do need to consider testosterone optimization.
Do you:

  • Fall asleep after dinner?
  • Find yourself not being able to get “above the horizon”?
  • Notice that morning erections are diminished or gone completely?
  • Find that you are not really “interested” in sex like you used to be?
  • Find it impossible to lose that stubborn belly fat, even though you’re watching your diet and still exercising?
  • Engage in regular exercise, but are not getting the results you desire?
  • Notice that you are grumpy, irritable, and unfocused?

Today every ball game has several commercials about the little blue pill and it’s cousins.  As a Duke trained board-certified urologist, I do know a thing or two about men’s health!  Most of the men on these medications don’t need them!  They need what they used to have, in abundance, but have lost: testosterone!  They need their testosterone levels back where they used to be, when they had no need for these little pills.
My advice to you is to choose your physician wisely when it comes to testosterone replacement.  Does he/she specialize in men’s health?  Primary care physicians have to deal with so many different issues and it stands to reason that men’s hormonal health may not be something that they see regularly, much less have been specifically trained to do.  There is much more than testosterone to worry about.  Did you know men make estrogen from testosterone, and too much could be dangerous?  Does your healthcare provider know this?  And there are other issues that can be of concern with improperly administered testosterone replacement.  If all you are getting from your primary care physician is a gel or testosterone shot, then you may need to ask more questions.
At Asheville Healthspan MD we specialize in hormone replacement therapy.  As a board certified urologist and fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, we provide men the optimal care they may need as they age.

Remember, all men suffer this decline in hormone levels.  It is like bleeding to death by a million cuts and pricks.  It happens to all men.  Don’t be like those guys who are literally wasting away, be the man you used to be!
