You haven’t felt right for a while. There’s no indication that you have any type of chronic illness or even some sort of infection. What could be causing the symptoms? If you are a man, it could be that you’re in need of some type of male hormone optimization therapy.
Evaluating the Severity of the Imbalance
Before any plan for male hormone optimization can be created, it’s important to confirm that the root cause of your symptoms is low testosterone levels. The good news is that simple tests can confirm if the problem is present. They will also determine how severe the deficiency happens to be.
During this phase, our doctor also identifies why your body is not producing testosterone normally. It could be due to some bodily trauma that will eventually heal. It could be a permanent issue that results from surgery. The problem may even be a medication you’ve been taking. If there is some way to correct what’s happening and eventually restore the body’s ability to produce adequate amounts of testosterone, that will affect how your therapy is structured.
Deciding That You Don’t Want to Settle
You do have the option of not seeking male hormone optimization therapy at all. That would mean living with your symptoms. For example, you may have to live with a reduced libido. Maybe you would have to put forth extra effort to control your temper.
Before deciding that you can live without the therapy, consider all the ways low testosterone is affecting your body and mind. It won’t take long to determine that you don’t want to settle. At that point, you’re truly ready for male hormone optimization therapy.
Discussing the Treatment Options
There’s more than one way to go about male hormone optimization therapy. But at ProMD Health, we proudly offer pellet bio-identical hormone optimization therapy. This is a safe and effective way to restore your body’s hormones in a convenient way.
