Testosterone Replacement Therapy For Men

Hormones have an integral role in the male body. Many men begin to feel a drop in their energy levels and an annual decline in their hormone levels beginning in their mid-20s. Andropause, often referred to as male menopause, is experienced by men with low testosterone levels. The symptoms of reduced testosterone can negatively impact a man’s quality of life. However, testosterone replacement therapy can reverse these symptoms. WildBerryMD follows strict FDA rules & regulations for testosterone therapy in Tucson. Symptoms of Low Testosterone:

How can Testosterone Replacement Therapy benefit men?

For men, bio-identical hormone/testosterone replacement therapy means optimizing testosterone levels, which decline gradually starting at about the age of 30. In addition to helping men boost their metabolism and become more energized, bio-identical hormone therapy can help men address a variety of common symptoms and problems.


Studies demonstrate that this hormone is vital to improving general well-being in both men and women. Symptoms of low testosterone include loss of interest in sex as well as sexual performance. Loss of testosterone can also cause an increase in body fat, loss of muscle mass, strength, endurance and an increase in cholesterol. The increase in visceral fat portends an increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. There are several different modalities available for treating low levels of testosterone and the associated symptoms.


Cortisol is responsible for stress response, and is also known as the “stress hormone.” Understanding cortisol and its effect on the body will help you balance your hormones and achieve good health. Cortisol is a steroid hormone and is produced in the adrenal glands. Secretion of the hormone is controlled by the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenal gland, a combination of glands often referred to as the HPA axis.

Excessive cortisol levels in the body can cause an increase in anxiety levels, insomnia and fatigue. Prolonged fatigue increases the incidence of common viral and other infections. Together, insulin and cortisol regulate blood sugar levels, and excess cortisol disrupts blood sugar levels. Weight loss may seem impossible if the body’s cortisol levels are fluctuating.


DHEA is important to sexual function and vitality in men and women. With age, DHEA levels reduce, leading to many diseases and issues in the body. Dehydroepiandrosterone is produced in the adrenal gland and is derived from cholesterol. This is the foundation for the ability to produce testosterone, estrogen and progesterone.

Adults typically have a quarter of the DHEA that they had in their youth. Low levels of DHEA have been associated with loss of protein synthesis, depression, weight gain, diabetes and heart disease. Bio-identical hormone/testosterone replacement therapy can help reverse these lower levels of sex hormone and increase sexual function.


This hormone is responsible for temperature regulation, cellular metabolism, energy, and cerebral function. Low levels increase body fat and cholesterol levels. Low thyroid levels contribute to cognitive impairment, thin skin and nails, fatigue, and hair loss. Depression or loss of interest in things that once were fun can be indicative of low thyroid. Thyroid deficiency can be effectively and easily treated.

Although most physicians utilize only the T4 hormone, recent studies have shown the benefit of adding T3 along with T4. The thyroid that we recommend is called natural or desiccated thyroid, which is a combination of both T4 and T3. Studies mimic our clinical experience and find that using natural thyroid and optimizing T3 levels leads to better symptom improvement and patient satisfaction.
