What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment for certain hormone imbalances that can cause extensive symptoms and health concerns. Hormones run almost all of your body’s processes, and even a minor imbalance in important hormones like testosterone can have a major impact on your wellbeing. 

Priority Medical Group specializes in a specific type of hormone replacement therapy called testosterone replacement therapy, which treats low testosterone or hypogonadism in aging men. The benefits of the treatment include:

  • More energy
  • Lower body fat
  • Improved mood
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Increased muscular strength
  • Better sexual performance

You can enjoy these benefits while alleviating multiple symptoms of low testosterone that impact your well-being. 

Which symptoms can hormone replacement therapy improve?

Low testosterone is perhaps the most impactful type of hormone imbalance that can affect men. It can affect you at any point in your life cycle but is most common in middle age. Your testosterone levels generally decline as you get older, but low testosterone can occur because of other factors such as testicular injuries, alcoholism, and certain medications.

Some of the most common symptoms of low testosterone are:

  • Muscle loss
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Gynecomastia
  • Low sex drive
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction

To confirm that these symptoms come from low testosterone, your Priority Medical Group Provider gives you a blood test that measures your hormone levels. 

What should I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

HRT happens under the supervision of a licensed and trained provider. You have two choices regarding how to take your testosterone:

Shots in the clinic

One of your options involves coming to Priority Medical Group to get injections of testosterone on a regular basis, which your provider safely administers. 

Self-administered shots

Your other option is self-administered shots. You receive your testosterone prescription in the office, and your provider tells you how to inject the testosterone on your own at home. If you’re afraid of needles or simply aren’t confident in your ability to self-inject, this might not be the best option for you.
