Androgen (DHT) therapy, more commonly known as testosterone replacement therapy, is an expensive form of therapy where testosterone, usually testosterone, is replaced with a synthetic version of the hormone. ART is frequently prescribed as a short-term solution to treat the effects of male sexual Hypogonadism, a medical condition characterized by excessive androgen hormone levels. It may also be prescribed to treat enlarged prostates, a common male symptom. Male-pattern baldness is also treated through androgenetic therapy, whereby testosterone is replaced with an element that prevents further hair growth.Learn more about us at Healthy Me Medical Therapies-Testosterone Replacement Therapy
When undergoing testosterone replacement therapy for the purpose of treating a medical condition, your doctor will likely have you undergo one or more injections of the synthetic hormone in the buttock, penis, upper thighs, back, chest, upper arms, abdomen, or face. The most commonly used locations for injections are: in the buttock, in the scrotum, on the upper thighs, behind the ears, in the groin area, and upper back. Although your doctor will likely recommend one or more sites, he or she will also likely allow you to choose where the needles are inserted. In other words, some men have opted to have the injection administered in their testicles; others prefer to have it administered in the buttocks.
Before having testosterone replacement therapy done, it’s important that you discuss your symptoms with your healthcare provider. Common symptoms include a decrease in sex drive, erectile dysfunction, depression, fatigue, muscle pain, loss of muscle control, and thinning hair. Your healthcare provider will perform a physical examination to assess the condition of your prostate and genital areas. Your doctor will then suggest treatments that may help you achieve and maintain optimal levels of sex drive, strength, and muscle control.
