What are the benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Portland area patients?
Testosterone is the chief male hormone in the body. While it is often associated with sexual interest and erectile function, it also plays an important role in stabilizing and improving energy, mood, body composition, and bone health. After men reach the age of 30, they begin to show a gradual decline in testosterone levels. Though completely normal, this can cause men to be at a higher risk for medical conditions including cognitive decline, obesity, fatigue, depression, and anxiety. It can also result in a higher risk for coronary heart disease and cardiac mortality. Because of this, it is important for men to speak to a professional in the Portland area about restoring their testosterone to a more “youthful” level and balance it to improve all areas of their lives.
There are many benefits to patients considering treatments such as testosterone replacement therapy. This treatment can help balance out the hormone levels, thus improving one’s overall health and wellness. Men who have had testosterone replacement therapy find that they have more energy, sleep better, enjoy better sexual function, and have a much better overall mood. This, in addition to the advantages of better heart health, can help extend one’s overall lifespan while making quality of life better during the aging years.
Dr. Adam Maddox provides both men and women with hormone replacement therapies. He has seen the benefits of hormone replacement therapies with many of his patients who feel vibrant, healthy, and full of life even in their later years. Men who talk to the doctor about the way they feel during andropause (male menopause) can work with a specialist and determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for them.
At Thrive, we encourage both men and women to improve their health and wellness by speaking to a doctor about hormone replacement therapy. Our team is here to educate patients on the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy as well as bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.Back to Testosterone Replacement Page
