Portland area doctor describes the importance of maintaining testosterone levels

Testosterone treatment from doctor in Portland

After men reach the age of 30, they slowly begin to experience lowered testosterone levels due to natural signs of aging. By the time a man has reached the age of 80, they may have only 20 percent of the testosterone they had when they were younger. When testosterone levels decrease, it can leave patients at risk for many medical and emotional problems including:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Heart disease
  • Muscle and stamina loss
  • Reduced libido
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Cognitive decline

Testosterone levels can also change during male menopause, known as andropause, which is characterized by a dramatic decrease in testosterone over a long period. Many men begin to experience problems, but often feel embarrassed to discuss them with their doctor because they feel these problems are normal with aging. However, thanks to continued advances in hormone therapy, men can now use testosterone replacement therapy to restore the proper levels of testosterone and improve their overall function and vitality.

Testosterone levels can be checked by a doctor. Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive in Portland can perform a series of tests to determine if male patients are in need of testosterone replacement therapy. If so, therapy options are brought to the patient’s attention and they are welcome to discuss the possibilities available to them for treatment. Thrive offers many different hormone replacement therapies, including bio-identical hormone replacement therapy also known as BHRT. This is a natural method of maintaining hormone levels, which can be beneficial for both men and women for age management.

Patients in the Portland area who are struggling with the signs of aging and changes to their body are welcome to contact Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive. He provides both men and women with hormone replacement therapies to help get through andropause or menopause and improve vitality and overall lifestyle with treatments customized for patients.
