Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Delray Beach FL Hormone Therapy Specialist, Martin Bloom, M.D. at the biostation offers customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy programs to men that are suffering from the consequences of hormonal decline or imbalances.
Men that are finally ready to take the leap and consider testosterone replacement therapy have most likely read the literature in magazine ads and websites and know that they have the symptoms of low testosterone, such as lost muscle mass, low sex drive, irritability, moodiness, and fatigue, but many men simply are not sure what will happen when they actually take the leap and begin testosterone replacement therapy.
Unlike many functional medicine centers, the biostation focuses treatment plans on patients and their specific needs. Men will know right from the start what to expect, and they will get a comprehensive analysis of what they need and how that aligns with what they want to achieve.
A 2011 review published by the European Society of Endocrinology found that testosterone replacement therapy improves the quality of life, and most men experience some improvement after 3 to 4 weeks of treatment and reach maximum benefits with continued routine dosage and monitoring.
