Everybody ages, but not everyone takes advantage of therapies that can treat many symptoms of aging. Naturally, our hormone levels decline as we age. When the signs and symptoms begin to impact our everyday health we start to take notice.
Since testosterone is known best as a sex hormone, men often notice diminished sexual drive and performance as the first sign of a hormone decline. Some men may not take full notice until they suffer from things like erectile dysfunction or ED. Male hormone replacement therapy is an effective way to counter these symptoms and regain sexual vitality. Incredibly, however, 90% of men have never been tested or treated for hormonal imbalance.

Male hormone replacement therapy also addresses the more general symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as loss of muscle tone, weight gain, declining energy levels, and loss of motivation and focus. The hormone optimization programs that anti-aging doctor Amy Garza implements address the individual needs and symptoms of each of our patients. Combined with an optimized nutrition plan and exercise regimen patients will notice remarkable differences not just in how they look, but most importantly in how they feel.
A decline in testosterone may be the first thing our male patients notice, but treating hormonal imbalance in men is not just limited to a focus on the sex hormone, testosterone. Hormones such as cortisol, thyroid, and vitamin D also play a part in the overall health of men. Using thorough lab testing along with the patient interview process, Dr. Garza can identify which hormones need addressing with each individual patient.
Typically, we analyze patient lab samples prior to the first office visit and are able to begin treating the root cause of symptoms as soon as the patient and doctor have their first meeting. Dr. Amy Garza and the staff at AgeWell provide patients with a full range of hormone replacement therapy during the initial consult. AgeWell offers a number of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) options, including hormone pellet therapy as well as injections and more. Dr. Garza is a certified pellet provider with exclusive training on the administration of this type of hormone pellet therapy. For those patients not interested in pellet therapy, Dr. Garza can discuss treatment of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the form of injections, dissolvable tablets, or creams/gels.
