Bio-identical Testosterone Replacement


  • When hormones are replaced or restored back to physiologic levels considered normal for younger males, men may experience a dramatic reversal of many of these changes.
  • On the average, a man's testosterone levels begin to decline at a rate of 1% per year after age 40.  It is estimated that 20% of men aged 60-80 years have levels below the lower limit of normal.

Goals of Andropause Therapy in Men 50yrs & Older


  • Improve psychological well-being & mood
  • Improve erectile dysfunction & libido
  • Increase muscle mass, strength & stature
  • Preservation of bone mass
  • Decrease in cardiovascular risk

Cardiovascular Disease


  • Risk is decreased with higher serum total testosterone levels, according to most reports.  An number of studies have demonstrated that testosterone minimizes several important risk factors for heart attack, including:
  • reducing cholesterol and triglycerides
  • reducing blood glucose levels
  • decreasing visceral fat mass
  • normalizing blood clotting
  • The degree of atherosclerotic disease increases significantly with declining levels of free testosterone.  Visceral fat accumulation is connected with increased vascular risk, and studies have shown that androgen administration can decrease this fat accumulation.
