Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Gulfport, MS


What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)?

Men notice changes with their physical and mental health as they age. These changes stem from lower testosterone production caused by a series of genetic, environmental, lifestyle, and age related factors. Decreased sex drive and performance, depression and many more side-effects can be caused by low testosterone.

The symptoms of low testosterone, also referred to as andropause, can begin to present as early as the late twenties. The condition of andropause may seem like an sad inevitability or negative condition with inadequate and ineffective solutions. However, as a result of advances in anti-aging or age management medicine, that is no longer true. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can provide relief! To get started please call (228) 206-0542 for more information or schedule with Dr. Delphine Shannon at Health Fit M.D.

The symptoms could manifest themselves all at once or individually. Onset of low testosterone symptoms, also termed Low-T, may be rapid and unsettling. Typically, male testosterone levels gradually decrease with age. Most men approaching 50 are ideal candidates for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

While it's most commonly caused by age, Low-T can also stem from:
 
  • Testicular Injury
  • Certain Medications
  • Chemotherapy / Radiation Therapy
 
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Pituitary Gland Damage
  • Certain Sexually-Transmitted Diseases (STDs)
 

To determine if you are suffering from Low-T, your doctor can administer a testosterone level test. This usually occurs in the form of a simple blood test. To schedule such a test, please call (228) 206-0542 or schedule with Dr. Delphine Shannon at Health Fit M.D.

How does Testosterone Replacement Therapy Work?

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) performed by a medical professional is the best way to treat sub-optimal or low testosterone (Low-T). This medical treatment is a type of hormone replacement therapy, or HRT. Essentially, HRT revitalizes your body by optimizing your reduced testosterone levels. Optimal levels of testosterone are associated with increased strength, vitality, sexual desire, improved sleep, and better mood. Studies also show decreased risk for many age related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's disease.

Some forms of HRT use of synthetic hormones that have been shown to carry a high risk of long-term harmful side effects to many human organ systems. Thus, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) performed by a trained and certified medical professional becomes the safe and recommended form of testosterone replacement treatment.

BHRT utilizes testosterone that is chemically and biologically identical to the natural hormone that your body has always produced. BHRT is both safer and has more efficacy than traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy.

Bioidentical testosterone can be delivered in a number of ways, including:

 

  • Testosterone Pills
  • Testosterone Patches
  • Testosterone Gels
 

  • Testosterone Creams
  • Testosterone Injections
  • Testosterone Implanted Pellets
 
 
All of these methods can elevate your testosterone levels. However, you should consult with a trained and certified BHRT physician to determine the best method and dosing of testosterone for you.
