Is testosterone therapy the same as male hormone therapy?

Testosterone therapy is part of male hormone therapy. Testosterone is a male sex hormone responsible for common male characteristics, such as facial hair, increased muscle mass, and sex drive. 

Males and females produce testosterone, but testosterone production is higher in males. As you get older, the production of testosterone slows down. If testosterone levels get too low, you may experience a decrease in sex drive, changes in body composition, and lack of energy.

Testosterone therapy restores hormone levels to ease these symptoms. 

Male hormone therapy at Addison Pain + Regenerative Medicine may include more than testosterone. The team also offers human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to stimulate testosterone production in the testes. 

The team may also include sermorelin as part of your male hormone therapy. Sermorelin is a type of peptide therapy that increases the production of human growth hormone (HGH), helping slow down the aging process.

They also offer therapies to optimize thyroid hormones to support normal metabolic function. The team doesn’t treat thyroid disorders like Grave’s disease or Hashimoto thyroiditis.

How do I know if I need male hormone therapy?

The team at Addison Pain + Regenerative Medicine conducts a thorough evaluation to determine if you need male hormone therapy. You may want to schedule a consultation if you’re experiencing symptoms associated with hormonal changes, such as:

  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Fatigue
  • Hair thinning
  • Depression
  • Thin skin

They review your symptoms and medical history and perform a physical exam. They also run lab work to check hormone levels to confirm that a hormonal imbalance is causing your symptoms.

They talk to you about male hormone therapy and how it works. They offer therapy in many forms, including bioidentical pellets, topical agents, injections, and pills. 

If you’re experiencing sexual dysfunction unrelated to changes in hormone levels, the team at Addison Pain + Regenerative Medicine may suggest the P-Shot®. They also offer PRP hair restoration that can address male pattern baldness.

What are the benefits of male hormone therapy?
