Knowing what to look for can make it easier to know when to seek medical care for hormonal imbalances. Some indications of decreased testosterone production in men include:
If you notice these changes, schedule a diagnostic exam. Simple blood testing reveals your current hormone levels and helps you and your practitioner decide if testosterone therapy is right for you.
Supplemental hormone therapy works by administering synthetic hormones to balance your natural hormone production. When it comes to supplemental testosterone, Atlas Health Institute offers both injections and pellet therapy.
Testosterone injections deliver testosterone directly into your muscle tissue. You may need to come in for injections every couple of weeks. There is also a longer-lasting injection option that helps balance hormone production for as long as 10 weeks.
Pellet therapy is also an option. That approach involves fewer office visits. Your practitioner inserts small pellets just beneath the surface of your skin. About the size of a grain of rice, these pellets slowly release testosterone as they dissolve.
Your body processes and eliminates the pellets entirely, so there’s no need for a separate process to remove them. Some men prefer pellet therapy because it provides a steadier flow of hormones.
During your consultation, your provider discusses the advantages of each option to help you make an informed decision about your care. Feel free to ask questions or express concerns as they arise.
While you might notice some changes immediately, it takes time for your body to adjust to testosterone therapy. Everyone has a slightly different response to supplemental hormone therapy.
Your feedback plays a central role in the process. Consider keeping a written log of improvements or issues that arise during your treatment. That information helps your provider adjust testosterone therapy to create the best possible results for your specific needs and goals.
