Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone decline can start for most men in their mid-thirties or earlier! If you’re experiencing hair loss, fatigue, depression, a decreased sex drive, excess body fat, or a loss of bone mass, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) could be the right treatment for you. Our experts put your health, well-being, and happiness first by providing information about the effects of testosterone decline and how to slow, stop, or even reverse its impact with TRT!
You may be a candidate for TRT if you have signs of:
- Decreased Sex Drive
- Excess Body Fat
- Decrease in Bone or Muscle Mass
- Decrease in Body Hair
- Excess Body Fat
- Reduces strength & endurance
- Sleep problems
A free Testosterone and PSA screening (prostate specific antigen- a pre-indicator for prostate cancer) can be done to determine if you are a candidate for TRT.
How often will I need to get a shot?
Our TRT is given in accordance to the CDC regulations starting with no more than 150 mg weekly or 200 mg every other week. The half-life of testosterone is typically 8-10 days and therefore most men prefer weekly injections.
What type of testosterone is used?
We use Depo-Testosterone Cypionate & Propionate blend of the highest quality from American manufacturers.
Who should not get the shots?
Anyone with a known hypersensitivity to the drug or anyone with known or suspected cancer of the breast or prostate gland or known serious cardiac (heart), hepatic (kidney/liver), or renal (urinary) disorders or diseases. Also, long term us of testosterone will suppress the amount of sperm produced; therefore, if you desire to impregnate your partner in the near future you should consider postponing the use of testosterone. However, we offer an alternative therapy. Studies have shown the use of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) can increase natural testosterone production.
Will I have to do any lab tests?
Yes, periodic lab testing is preformed including: PSA (prostate specific antigen), CMP (complete metabolic panel), CBC (complete blood count which includes hematocrit) , Lipid profile (to ensure your health against contraindications; TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and Estrodiol to rule out hormonal imbalances. Consistent total testosterone, and testosterone free levels are also done.
Can I file the cost to my insurance?
Yes, you can if your insurance plan approves. However, a convenient single weekly/bi-weekly fee due at time of service is your only expense. No additional fees for laboratory work or prescriptions are required.
After approval, what can I expect my first visit?
No appointment is necessary. Just walk in and one of our trained professionals will go over information about TRT, have you fill out a Medical History Form, and consult with you about the best treatment option for you. We will also conduct a baseline blood draw that we can used to compare with your future lab work to ensure that you are at your healthiest.
In addition, Anastrozole and HGH are offered as part of treatment if indicated or desired.
