Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment typically marketed to men. However, women also produce testosterone, although in smaller amounts than men. When these levels dip below normal for women, it can negatively impact their health. Women can significantly benefit from testosterone therapy as well. Even though testosterone is an androgenic male hormone, women’s bodies do make and need testosterone as well. Much like men, women’s testosterone levels diminish naturally with age, particularly after menopause. In some cases, low testosterone is a natural consequence of diminishing hormone levels.
Ovarian dysfunction or failure like from chemotherapy or radiation, can cause low levels of testosterone, as well as thyroid disease and certain types of cancer.
You should be aware that as of today there are over 80 peer-reviewed articles from institutions such as the Mayo Clinic, the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), Pubmed, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, and The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which show that testosterone deficiency is a global public health concern, a safe medication to take, and how it could actually, in most cases, prevent cardiovascular diseases, metabolic disorders, mitochondrial dysfunction, senescent cells, and neurological complications.
Our male and female patients report an improvement in any or all of these areas over time with our personalized human growth hormone treatment.
Before we break down the reasons behind getting complete blood work, let’s start with the three things that define aging and how they relate to the following information. The three things that define aging, in our humble opinion are memory, vision, and physical movement. Hormone replacement therapy or low testosterone treatment is hands down the best way to maintain the proper optimal function of these aging factors. This is the most essential tool you can use to age gracefully.
However, hormone replacement therapy should never be considered without a complete understanding of how all the body’s hormones interact with each other. If one hormone is altered or deficient in your body, it will affect the actions of all of the other hormones and it may cause a negative “cascade effect” if not prescribed properly. The hormonal response of an individual is as unique as their fingerprints, and how one responds to hormone therapy is related to the condition of one’s health, bio-individuality, genetic profile, stress level, nutritional supplementation, lifestyle, and what you eat.
We hope that you could agree that one size does not fit all, and why it’s so crucial that we customize each treatment for each patient with a proper complete blood work analysis. So, before starting you on a hormonal replacement/optimization treatment or if you are already on therapy, and your doctor is not ordering all of the blood test panels we look for, we would ask you to consider his overall expertise in the field of regenerative and hormone replacement/optimization therapy.
Once you read what each hormone’s roles are in your body, you will understand why complete blood work like ours is absolutely invaluable to your well-being. Our blood work is by far the most comprehensive blood test you can order. We are sincerely watching out for our patient’s best interests at all times.
