Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT)
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) replaces deficient hormones in men with hormones that are identical to the ones that your body already naturally makes. Your body cannot differentiate between the prescription hormones and your natural hormones, making them both safe and effective when used appropriately and monitored by a practitioner.
Every man is unique, and therefore the hormone replacement you require is also very unique. The ability to customize specific hormones and dosing of these hormones is a primary benefit of compounding BHRT. As compounders, we can select only the specific hormones that you require and tailor the dosing specifically to your needs. This can be based on your individual lab values as well as the symptoms you are experiencing. Overtime, we can easily adjust your regimen to change and evolve as your body does.
Hormones in BHRT prescriptions for men primarily involve testosterone. Many men benefit from the addition of DHEA, pregnenolone and progesterone as well. A combination of these hormones can help improve symptoms including fatigue, loss of motivation, reduced sexual desire. Hormones are also helpful for maintaining metabolism, improving muscle mass retention and fat loss, and improving mood and overall sense of well-being.
Men with history of prostate cancer, elevated PSA levels, or cardiovascular disease may not be candidates for TRT.
Our pharmacists have received post-graduate training and attend seminars regularly to uphold their knowledge and expertise in compounding safe and effective BHRT. We offer consultative services to assist patients and practitioners with BHRT prescriptions. This service includes reviewing labs and making recommendations for BHRT and supplements. Please do not hesitate to reach out to use regarding these services or general questions about BHRT.
