Dr. Hermann has been treating males with hormone therapy for 16 years with great results. Starting after age 30, as a man ages, the testosterone level in his body declines. Low testosterone is associated with the following conditions:
- Increased fatigue
- Decreased libido
- Decreased muscle mass
- Increased body fat
- Changes in cholesterol and lipid levels
- Decreased body hair
- Decreased hemoglobin and possibly anemia
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease
The only way to detect low testosterone is to have a blood or saliva test. We offer very affordable testing through Quest laboratories.
Once diagnosed with low testosterone, there are several male hormone therapy options available:
- Injections every one to three weeks
- Transdermal patch
- Clomid pills
Shortly after beginning treatment, men re-gain energy levels, see an increase in libido, and feel less fatigued. St. Petersburg testosterone therapy should be avoided by men who have had prostate or breast cancer. It is important to be screened for prostate cancer before and during treatment. Dr. Hermann or one of her staff will perform the screening or ensure that you have had it done prior to initiation of testosterone therapy.
