Testosterone is a hormone normally associated with men but is also found in women. Testosterone is secreted by the adrenal glands, testes and ovaries and contributes to increased tolerance of exercise, strength, lowering fat and overall wellbeing. It also protects against bigger issues like arthritis, body fat, and cardiovascular disease. Having testosterone appropriately present in your body allows for more lean muscle mass, better bone density, improved skin tone and better sexual performance. These are many of the reasons we offer low testosterone replacement therapy options at Get Well Scottsdale for those struggling with deficiency.
Menopause in females is a widely discussed, well-studied phenomenon, yet its equivalent in males – andropause – is virtually ignored. They are very similar experiences with both typically presenting in those 40 or older and can be caused by lower hormone levels than needed. Both can be accompanied by fatigue, depression, irritability, aches and pains, reduced sexual interest, enjoyment and/or performance, general signs of aging and increased risk of chronic degenerative disease. Due to the less-discussed nature of andropause, many of our male Scottsdale patients may not exactly know what they are experiencing or how to address it. Our expert staff here at Get Well Scottsdale will gladly discuss all of what you are experiencing and if we believe andropause to be the cause we will inform you and address how best to tackle the problem.
Testosterone replacement therapy in men within the Scottsdale area, done with bio-identical testosterone in physiologic doses, is not only safe, but also protective. This is well supported in medical literature and the Scottsdale medical community. Testosterone has been shown to increase muscle strength and lean body mass, improve sexual response, prevent osteoporosis, protect against cardiovascular disease, increase energy, fight impotence, and improve mood and sense of well-being. A recent published study showed that men with higher testosterone levels live longer. Our professional team here in Scottsdale is well-versed in how testosterone deficiencies may present and how best to tackle them. If we feel testosterone replacement therapy will suite you best, we will ensure you understand why and know what the long-term benefits are as well.
Multiple medical studies have proven that testosterone does not cause prostate cancer. Interestingly, men typically get prostate cancer when they are older and testosterone levels are naturally at their lowest. In fact, low levels of testosterone, or low t, are associated with more aggressive tumors. No study has shown that supplementing with testosterone increases your chances of getting prostate cancer. If one does develop prostate cancer, testosterone supplementation and therapy might accelerate the growth levels of the tumor. Therefore, there is a need to monitor the PSA on a regular basis when supplementing testosterone with our testosterone therapy options for those struggling with low t in Scottsdale.
Men who struggle with low t and receive testosterone replacement typically report they feel sexier, stronger, and healthier. They state that it makes them feel as they did when they were in their prime. After all, this is what replenishment of hormones is all about. It is about restoring hormones to youthful levels, so you can feel as you did when you were at the peak of your physical and mental ability. Low t can slow down the physical decline that robs men of their energy, strength, and libido. However, testosterone therapy can restore muscle tone and improve stamina. Testosterone therapy can improve mood and overall sense of well-being. Why would men not want this healthy hormone and our low testosterone therapy options from Get Well Scottsdale?
