TESTOSTERONE LEVELS

Hormone imbalance can have a profound and disruptive effect on daily life—from a loss of libido to memory issues to sleep problems. In the long term, it can weaken your muscles, bones, and cardiovascular health. Not all levels are the same, each and every level is determined by what is best for you.

“NORMAL” VS.  “OPTIMAL”

MOST MEN do not have optimal testosterone levels. If your levels are “normal,”  you may not be in the optimal range that is best for you. “Optimal levels” mean that you feel like the best version of yourself– you have the energy to perform daily activities and workouts, you build muscle easily, and you have a healthy sex drive. No two men will experience the exact same symptoms even if they are at the same level. If your testosterone is below your optimal level, you can experience fatigue, decreased sex drive or performance, increased body fat or weight, loss of bone and muscle mass, and moodiness or irritability. Not only do these symptoms effect how you feel, but other health issues may arise such as osteoporosis or depression.

NORMAL

“NORMAL” levels of testosterone are above 250 without regard to age, symptoms or health. Most men learn, “As you get older, you should feel older.” (Which is not true.) If you were graded by your testosterone levels, a level of “350” is a “D”. Even though it is considered “normal”, it is still a ËœD”. Would you accept a “D” in any other area of your life? No! Why would you accept a “D” on your testosterone level?

OPTIMAL

“OPTIMAL” levels of testosterone mean you are in the upper third of the testosterone scale. Optimal levels are typically 950-1100 (sometimes hig

her but not more than 1250). Optimal levels take into consideration your symptoms, strength, and overall health along with lab results. By optimizing testosterone (under the supervision of a testosterone specialty physician), patients typically increase strength, heal quicker, improve cardiovascular health, find an increase in sex drive and performance, and feel better.

BENEFITS OF

TESTOSTERONE OPTIMIZATION THERAPY

WHEN YOUR TESTOSTERONE IS NOT AT OPTIMAL LEVELS, YOU ARE NOT YOUR OPTIMAL SELF!

WHY

(SPECIALTY) PHYSICIAN MONITORED?

YOU WOULDN’T TAKE YOUR CAR TO SOMEONE WHO WASN’T A QUALIFIED MECHANIC. WHY WOULD YOU TRUST YOUR HEALTHCARE WITH SOMEONE WHO ISN’T A DOCTOR?

LEGALITY

The most obvious reason to choose a qualified physician to monitor your testosterone therapy. If you are taking testosterone that you get from a non-physician source, you are breaking the law and could face criminal charges for possessing a controlled substance.

SIDE EFFECTS

If not monitored by a qualified physician, testosterone therapy can produce unwanted side effects and pose serious health risks. When a qualified physician monitors your treatment, these side effects can be avoided with simple routine blood work. Unmonitored side effects can include but are not limited to acne, irritability/aggression, mood swings, hair loss, nipple tenderness, testicle shrinkage, and even stroke.

ROUTINE LEVEL CHECKS AND DOSING ADJUSTMENTS

When a qualified testosterone specialist physician monitors your treatment, you will have routine blood work done to assure that, along with keeping track of your symptoms, your testosterone level is increasing, and your other hormones are being properly balanced to avoid side effects. Dosing may need to be increased or decreased depending on your symptoms and levels.
