How Hormone Replacement Therapy Works

How Hormone Replacement Therapy Works

Here’s what you should know about getting hormone replacement therapy in Lakeland, FL.

While we often equate hormonal imbalances with menopausal women, the fact is that a hormone imbalance can occur in both men and women of any age. For men, this is often due to low testosterone. When this happens, it’s important to figure out what’s causing this imbalance and to help return the body to homeostasis. One way that your internal medicine doctor Dr. Chester Miltenberger does this is with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). 

Getting Hormone Replacement Therapy as a Man

The main sex hormone for men is testosterone, which depletes as a man ages. These low testosterone levels can lead to a variety of symptoms including:

  • Loss of muscle
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Decreased libido
  • Lack of motivation and energy
  • Decreased bone density

Benefits of Treating Low Testosterone 

When replacing the insufficient amounts of testosterone in your body, you'll notice these amazing benefits: 

  • Increased sex drive
  • High energy levels
  • Better mood, stamina, and memory
  • Decrease in depressive symptoms
  • Heightened immune system

HRT is administered in multiple different ways. We can discuss the different HRT options including injections, creams, and pellets. The level of testosterone that you need will determine which type of HRT is best.
