Portland area professional discusses testosterone replacement therapy options
At Thrive, we provide a variety of ways to help patients age with grace and beauty. We offer cosmetic treatments such as body sculpting solutions and skin care products, but we also believe in helping our patients maintain proper hormone levels for optimum vitality. When men come to our Portland area practice to learn about Low-T (low testosterone), they may realize that they’ve been dealing with this hormonal imbalance for some time now.
Low testosterone is something that can happen to any man regardless of age, but testosterone levels are shown to dip after the age of 25. Men’s testosterone levels peak before this age, and then begin to drop off gradually over the years. Later in life, some men experience a condition similar to that of menopause known as andropause. It too results in hormonal changes that can result in a variety of issues including:
- Weight gain
- Loss of interest in sex
- Erectile dysfunction
- Mood changes/irritability
- Muscle loss
- Increased depression/anxiety
- Memory loss
Men who are experiencing these issues may be suffering from lowered testosterone, and may benefit from testosterone replacement therapy offered at Thrive. Dr. Adam Maddox is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist who is proud to provide patients with hormone replacement therapies to help them live life to the fullest. Using special testing to check the hormone levels in the body, Dr. Adam Maddox can then work with patients in developing a customized treatment plan that may include hormone replacements, an exercise plan, nutritional changes, and even supplements to ensure the body is strong and healthy.
