Men's Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy in men refers to the administration of hormones, mainly testosterone, to address hormonal imbalances or deficiencies in your body.

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone that plays a crucial role in various bodily functions. Low testosterone levels in men can lead to numerous symptoms, such as low energy, reduced libido, mood changes, and more. 

As men age, their testosterone levels naturally decrease. Additionally, various health conditions and factors can contribute to low testosterone. 

At Inception Telehealth & Wellness, our expert healthcare providers offer comprehensive care to help you maintain optimal hormone levels. We understand the implications that hormonal imbalance can have on your health. With our expertise in men’s hormone therapy, we are well-equipped to help you address various health conditions related to hormonal imbalance. 

Male Sex Hormone: Testosterone

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone, belonging to a class of hormones called androgens. Testosterone is primarily produced in the testicles, which are part of the male reproductive system. 

Testosterone is found in both males and females, but men typically have higher levels. It serves various essential bodily functions in men’s bodies. Common functions associated with testosterone include:

  • Sperm production
  • Regulating libido and sexual function
  • Bone density
  • Muscle mass and strength 
  • Metabolism
  • Red blood cell production 
  • Mood and cognitive function
  • Energy levels

Testosterone levels naturally decline with age. Several factors that can lead to low testosterone levels include: 

  • Age
  • Medical conditions such as hormonal disorders, liver disease, and chronic kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Injury to the testicles
  • Testicular cancer or cancer treatment
  • Certain medications, such as glucocorticoids (corticosteroids) or opioids.
  • Chronic Stress and depression
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Inadequate sleep 

Medical Conditions

Low levels of testosterone can lead to a range of symptoms and may even contribute to the development of several medical conditions. 

Common medical conditions associated with low testosterone levels include:

  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED): Low testosterone levels can contribute to difficulties in achieving or maintaining an erection, leading to erectile dysfunction.
  • Low libido: Testosterone plays a crucial role in regulating sexual desire. This may result in a decreased libido or interest in sexual activity.
  • Infertility: Testosterone is crucial for sperm production, and low levels can impair sperm production and cause male infertility.
  • Osteoporosis: Testosterone helps maintain bone density. Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by weakened bones and an increased risk of fractures. Low testosterone levels can cause osteoporosis.
  • Metabolic conditions: Testosterone levels, when low, are associated with an increased risk of metabolic conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and more.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: There is a bidirectional relationship between low testosterone levels and the development of type 2 diabetes. Low testosterone may contribute to insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.
  • Obstructive sleep apnea: Undiagnosed or poorly controlled sleep apnea suppresses testosterone production

Other symptoms

Other symptoms of low testosterone include: 

  • Muscle mass loss and low strength
  • Weight gain with an increase in body fat, particularly in the abdominal region.
  • Fatigue and reduced energy levels
  • Mood changes such as irritability, mood swings, and even symptoms of depression.

Hormone Therapy in Men

At Inception Telehealth & Wellness, we understand the implications of hormonal imbalance on your health. Our expert and well-equipped team provides hormone replacement therapy and testosterone replacement therapy to address the hormonal imbalance in your body. 

Hormone Replacement Therapy in Men

Hormone replacement therapy involves replacing or supplementing hormones that the body is not producing in adequate amounts. 

HRT in men may address the following hormones:

  • Testosterone hormone, when at low levels, causes symptoms such as fatigue, reduced libido, and mood changes. 
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) plays a crucial role in regulating sperm production in men. In some instances of infertility or low sperm count, FSH hormone therapy can help to optimize your reproductive health.
  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH) stimulates testosterone production in the testes. Abnormal LH levels can impact testosterone production. In certain cases of low testosterone, LH is addressed to optimize hormonal balance.
  • Cortisol is a stress hormone that regulates metabolism and immune system response. Cortisol replacement therapy helps maintain proper cortisol levels in cases of adrenal insufficiency or dysfunction. Cortisol is essential for managing stress, maintaining energy levels, and supporting overall health.
  • Thyroid hormones (thyroxine - T4 and triiodothyronine - T3) regulate metabolism by controlling how much glucose enters cells for energy use. Thyroxine replacement therapy can help people with thyroid disorders, such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. 
  • Prolactin is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that plays a key role in reproductive health, but excess prolactin production can lead to prolactinoma, a benign pituitary tumor. Prolactin has an inhibitory effect on gonadotropin-releasing hormone and luteinizing hormone, which are involved in testosterone production, potentially leading to decreased testosterone levels and related symptoms. 
  • Estradiol is a hormone that is present in both men and women, although it is predominantly associated with female reproductive health. In men, estradiol plays a crucial role in regulating libido, erectile function, and spermatogenesis. However, it is important to maintain a balance of estradiol in men, as both excessively high and low levels can have negative effects on health and well-being

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

There are several methods of delivering testosterone into the body. The choice of method depends on factors such as your preference, convenience, and health considerations. These methods include: 

Intramuscular Injections

Testosterone can be administered through injections, typically into the gluteal (buttock) muscles at regular intervals. 

Testosterone injections are common and a well-established and cost-effective method. Our healthcare provider will give you an injection every 1 to 2 weeks, depending on our specific formulation.

Topical gels or patches

Testosterone can be absorbed through the skin using gels or patches. The patches are applied to the skin, usually on the back, abdomen, thighs, or upper arms.

The patches and gels provide a steady and continuous release of testosterone, which is absorbed into the bloodstream.

Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Male hormone therapy, specifically testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), can address many health issues in men. Common potential benefits associated with TRT include:

  • Improved mood and mental well-being
  • Increased energy levels
  • Enhanced libido and sexual function
  • Increased muscle mass and strength
  • Improved bone density
  • Reduction in fat mass
  • Cognitive function
  • Improved cardiovascular health
