Testosterone replacement therapy treatment in both men and women has repeatedly been shown to be safe. For instance, scientific evidence has debunked the myth that testosterone causes prostate cancer or heart disease. On the contrary, there is overwhelming scientific evidence that testosterone replacement therapy protects against a number of diseases and conditions. Some of these include diabetes, depression, obesity, heart disease in addition to neurological disorders like Alzhiemer’s and dementia. When looking for Testosterone replacement therapy in Miami, call the Medical Health Institute. Your hormone replacement and testosterone therapy specialists with 2 Miami offices for your convenience.
Check out our new blog post that covers the entire testing process for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). Michael Bertonatti gives us a very thorough analysis of how detailed the Low T Doctors at the Medical Health Institute really get. You can read the blog in it’s entirety with the following link.

SARMs S4 & S22 (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) provide the benefits of traditional androgenic hormones such as testosterone. This includes increased muscle mass, fat loss, and bone density. They do this while having a lower tendency to produce the unwanted side effects of testosterone (aromatization and increased DHT). Furthermore, by acting and stimulating on the androgen receptor, SARMs can provide a similar therapeutic outcome to androgen therapy. It does so without any increase in androgen levels. SARMs have the potential to take the place of the androgens. Therefore, they exert many of the same positive effects on muscle tissue as testosterone. The anabolic effect has been measured to be roughly the same as testosterone. Moreover, it has also been shown to produce dose-dependent increases in bone mineral density. In effect, mechanical strength is increased while being able to decrease body fat and increase lean body mass.
Our Miami HRT Clinic has 2 locations and can tell you if testosterone replacement therapy is right for you. We have a number of other services in addition to ‘Low T’ treatment that can help you with health issues you might be having.
HCG treatment is used to increase testicular size and natural testosterone/semen production. Testosterone replacement therapy treatment causes the hypothalamus to shut down, and the production of gonadotropin releasing hormones (GNRH) ceases. Therefor, without GNRH, the pituitary glands stop releasing luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Without LH and FSH the testicles (gonads) shut down their production of testosterone and semen. For males, HCG treatment mimics the actions of LH and FSH.
We recommend using HCG while on testosterone replacement therapy and as a post-cycle treatment. This assists in avoiding adverse effects of unopposed exogenous testosterone therapy. If HCG is not used while on therapy, you’re likely to suffer from withdrawal symptoms. As a result, the testicles shrink and semen count drops drastically. During Testosterone Replacement Therapy our patients have observed an increase in testicular function and size within the first three injections. This is following intramuscular or subcutaneous injections. HCG serum concentrations peak within about six hours of administration and are fed for about 36 hours. These concentrations approach baseline (undetectable) levels around three days after administration during your testosterone replacement therapy treatment.
That depends on the patient’s blood evaluation. Based on the results, one of our physicians will determine if an aromatase inhibitor may be necessary throughout a patient’s prescribed testosterone treatment. Arimidex (Anastrozole) is an anti-aromatase medication (estrogen inhibitor). As a result, this medication is used concurrently with androgens like testosterone to help prevent water retention (edema) and gynecomastia (breast enlargement).
Having high levels of estrogen for prolonged periods may increase the chance of developing cardiovascular disease by up to 50%. Arimidex blocks the aromatase enzyme and prevents the production of estrogen. An excess of aromatase robs men of their testosterone benefits. In addition, it exposes them to higher than desirable estradiol (male estrogen) levels. As a result, by suppressing estrogen levels with an aromatase-inhibiting medication, such side effects can be avoided.
After your Testosterone Replacement Therapy treatment, Arimidex is used for several weeks as a post-therapy treatment. Arimidex is orally absorbed and reaches peak concentration in about one hour. It has a terminal half-life around 46 hours.
Hypogonadism refers to a decrease in testosterone production, sperm production, or both. Our physicians address the underlying hormone and testosterone issue of this condition. Set up a free consultation to see if testosterone replacement therapy treatment is right for you.
Based on our clinical experience, we have observed that our patients experience remarkable benefits from having serum testosterone. These levels have been between 500 ng/dL and 1,100 ng/dL. We consider these to be optimal. According to conventional medicine, 300 ng/dL is an acceptable level of testosterone. Though we rarely see patients experiencing benefits from such a low level.
One of our HRT doctors will determine the proper route of testosterone administration. We do this taking into account the patient’s preference. For instance, our physicians find that injectable testosterone therapy is the most efficient and effective way to increase testosterone levels. Transdermal creams have been shown to increase testosterone levels only slightly, if at all. In addition, it can take up to two hours for creams to fully absorb into the skin.
In regard to pellets, they can be painful, they sometimes malfunction, and the dose cannot be adjusted once implanted by the doctor. About 30% of our patients have used pellets and were ultimately unsatisfied with the results. Nonetheless, the patient can choose which method he is most comfortable with during their testosterone replacement therapy treatment.
