Why Do I Need Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Every man experiences a gradual decline in hormone production as he ages. Beginning at age 30, his body manufactures less and less testosterone, losing 1-2% per year until leveling off somewhere between 44-55 years of age, signaling the onset of Andropause…the male equivalent of Menopause. Symptoms frequently include:

  • lack of sexual desire
  • weight gain
  • loss of muscle mass
  • irritability
  • depression
  • sluggishness

Testosterone is essential to a man’s well-being… Our testosterone treatment can literally change your life.

What is Testosterone Therapy?

Testosterone therapy involves weekly/bi-weekly muscular injections of testosterone. The hormone is released into the bloodstream over time in a safe and controlled manner. Dosages are tightly controlled by your InShapeMD® health provider to ensure safe and maximum effectiveness. The hormones are compounded according to the highest industry standards, using the best quality botanical ingredients available.

Hormone Testing

InShapeMD also offers comprehensive hormone testing that includes testing thyroid function and an individuals IGF-1hormone. If someone’s IGF-1 is low, it indicates a sluggish pituitary gland.  We offer prescription compounded Sermorelin therapy. In adults, it stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts of growth hormone. The result is increased lean muscle mass, reduced body fat, sleep quality, increase skin density and collagen production, increased bone density, enhanced immune system and cardiovascular function, pancreatic and liver function, increases energy and vitality.

Weekly injections provide a sustained release of testosterone into the bloodstream, and helps avoid extreme fluctuations in testosterone levels between treatments. Another advantage is that the weekly process provides convenient, consistent communication and monitoring with the staff. So if, for example, dosage adjustments are needed, they can be implemented swiftly and seamlessly into the treatment schedule, ensuring that you achieve optimal testosterone concentrations.

Why Do We Prefer Testosterone Cypionate Medication?

Testosterone Cypionate is a long-acting version of the parent hormone testosterone with an attached cypionate ester to delay its release into the bloodstream. Testosterone Cypionate, the most commonly prescribed form of testosterone in the U.S., has been on the market and in use as an FDA Approved product since 1954. Its safety and effectiveness is well established, and our patients consistently see its benefits, both therapeutic and performance related.
