Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men

While not as widely discussed as menopause is for women, andropause is very real for men just as menopause is significant for women. Our BHRT program for men focuses on the unique needs of men who are suffering from andropause or low testosterone. The Program includes bioidentical hormone replacement (testosterone) when clinically indicated combined with nutritional guidence, nutritional supplementation recommendations and an optional exercise component. 

Depending on lab results and patient goals, the program may also include growth hormone and/or hcg (human chorionic gonadotropin).  If you can identify with some of the symptoms below, you are likely experiencing low testosterone / andropause and are a candidate for laboratory testing to determine if BHRT is right for you.

What are Bioidentical Hormones? Bioidentical hormones, also known as natural hormones, are substances that have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced by the human body, and they also create the same physiologic response. Hormones are NOT drugs. They are naturally occurring substances that are found in all humans since the time of conception. BHRT replaces hormones at a "physiologic" level that is not harmful to the body. Physiologic levels never exceed what the individual has already been accustomed to in his or her younger years.

Are Bioidentical Hormones FDA Approved? We use FDA approved bioidentical hormones (natural hormones) whenever possible to restore low testosterone levels to more youthful levels; however, when a dosage or strength that the patient requires is not commercially available, we use a compounding pharmacy to prepare an individualized prescription. Compounding pharmacists must comply with the regulation of the state boards of pharmacy, and they have access to the highest grade bulk ingredients as well as state-of-the art equipment used to accurately prepare hormone preparations. Close monitoring of the patient by PWC helps to promote maximum benefits and safety.

Patient Response
"The truly strange thing is the looks/comments I get from random guys. Remember, I have been feeling very "invisible" for years now, in part as a function of age, but mostly due to weight and simply "feeling old" - which I really did.

- I left your building and saw a guy turn his head to watch me walk out
- I left my car in my parking lot, and a man stopped me to ask whether a particular Bentley (!) was mine, then opined that I look like it should be mine
- I left my meeting with opposing counsel this afternoon, and a guy in the elevator commented on my jewelry (right - like he even cares about jewelry)

These guys are all ages, too.
Mind you, no man has spoken with/at me at all for years (except when I started it or it was business...)
So, that is the real impact. Not that I am looking for a man, but it is nice to be noticed and not just invisible."
