If you’re a man struggling with low testosterone levels, you’re not alone. Low testosterone affects about 2 in 100 American men, who suffer the loss of muscle mass, energy, sleep, and sex drive.
We don’t have to tell you that your testosterone levels and libido are highest when you’re in your late teens. But you might not know that testosterone levels slowly go downhill from there.
If you’re want to revive your sex drive, Aleksander Bodnar, MD, of Viva Health Group can help. One of the top treatments he offers is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Yes, hormone replacement isn’t just for women.
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
Bioidentical hormones are man-made (not laboratory-made) hormones that chemically mimic your natural hormones. Bioidenticals are plant- and animal-based and tailored to the unique makeup of your body.
Many traditional hormone therapy products, in fact, contain bioidentical hormones.
When you visit us at the Viva Health Group, we explain the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy including:
- Maintaining bone density
- Protecting against heart disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease
- Improving cardiovascular health
- Protecting against prostate cancer
During your consultation, we explain how bioidentical hormone replacement therapy works and answer all your questions confidentially. Then we examine you, evaluate your hormone levels, and determine if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the best treatment for you.
If it is, we give you a prescribed dosage to meet your needs and lessen or eliminate your symptoms.
When you’re taking hormone treatments, we closely monitor your hormone levels through blood, urine, and saliva checks.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment options
Candidates for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy have several delivery methods available.
- Implanted pellets
You’re not limited to trying just one method. If you try one and decide you’d like to experience another, we can change methods until you find one you like.
