Portland men’s clinic offers testosterone replacement therapy
Thrive in Portland is a clinic for men and women who are interested in aging beautifully. We focus on anti-aging solutions and ways to improve the health and appearance of the body. We want our patients to know that we have a wide range of options when it comes to enhancing the body including ways to address hormonal changes that occur over the years. For example, while many women are experiencing a change in hormones during menopause, men may experience a similar decline in hormones called andropause.
Andropause is essentially the male version of menopause. It affects men in the same way. An imbalance of hormones can cause a number of symptoms that can negatively affect the quality of life. Some of the signs of andropause may include:
- Unexpected weight gain
- Lowered sex drive
- Increased irritability
- Sexual dysfunction
- Muscle loss
- Depression and anxiety
- Memory loss
Dr. Adam Maddox can evaluate patients at Thrive to determine if they are suffering from andropause. This may include checking the hormone levels of the body. If our male patients are experiencing lowered levels of testosterone, this may easily explain the symptoms they are dealing with. By using testosterone replacement therapy, many men can rebalance their hormones and improve their overall functionality and self-confidence.
Testosterone replacement therapy at Thrive is done with pellet treatments. Pellets are inserted into the hip area three times a year to help in stabilizing the hormone levels. These pellets are biocompatible with the body and are made from wild yams! The pellets used in testosterone replacement therapy improve overall quality of life greatly by counteracting the loss of testosterone.
