      Low Testosterone (Low T) Doctor in Ocala, FL

      Low Testosterone Treatment Ocala FL

      Although some telltale symptoms – like a sluggish sex drive - alert men that their testosterone levels are low, it’s not always clear. If you’re losing pubic hair or hair in your armpits, did you know that might be a sign of Low T? Your moods, mental clarity, loss of muscle mass and changes in fat distribution in your body, these are all signs that your testosterone may be low.

      Low T may simply be a function of aging, but it’s important to determine the cause and correct it. Sometimes Low Testosterone is a sign of certain serious medical conditions. But even if it’s just affecting your sexual function, overall health, or quality of life, it’s important – and surprisingly simple – to fix the problem.

      Contact Mid-Florida Age Management to discuss life changing options for Low Testosterone. Schedule a consultation today with us by contacting us online or calling us at (352) 254-5954.

      What is Testosterone?

      Testosterone is a sex hormone that, in men, regulates everything from sex drive to muscle mass. It is the male hormone responsible for developing the testes during puberty and contributes to male attributes like facial hair or a deepened voice. Testosterone plays a key role in the bodies of both men and women, but it has a more predominant role in men, while estrogen plays a greater role in women’s health. In men, testosterone is essential in developing and maintaining:

      • Sex organs and genitalia
      • Sexual and reproductive functions
      • Muscle mass and strength
      • Red blood cell formation
      • Bone density
      • Fat distribution
      • Emotional well-being
      • Mental sharpness

      Levels of testosterone in your blood are tightly controlled by the body, though levels do fluctuate – normally being highest in the morning and declining over the course of the day.

      Symptoms of Low Testosterone

      Low Testosterone is defined as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). Levels can drop rapidly in some cases, which can lead to a host of symptoms. Usually, though, after the age of 30, a man's testosterone levels may naturally begin to decrease, and symptoms have a more gradual onset. Symptoms of Low Testosterone can include:

      • Low sex drive
      • Fatigue
      • Sleep changes
      • Reduced lean muscle mass and strength
      • Weight gain/obesity
      • Thyroid dysfunction
      • Irritability and other mood changes
      • Erectile dysfunction, including weaker erections or inability to achieve or sustain an erection
      • Depression
      • Hot flashes
      • Loss of armpit or pubic hair
      • Shrinking testicles
      • Less semen during ejaculation
      • Loss of bone density which may appear as a loss of height
      • Low energy levels
      • Type 2 diabetes

      Risk Factors and Causes of Low Testosterone

      Risk factors often include age, obesity, sleep apnea or Type 2 diabetes that is not effectively managed. Other risk factors may include certain medical conditions that are seemingly unrelated, like kidney dysfunction, liver cirrhosis or HIV/AIDS. We may also ask if you've used anabolic steroids or have been battling with obesity because both factors can interfere with the body's natural production of testosterone.

      Treatment for Low Testosterone

      There are many treatments that are effective for Low Testosterone, but some are more effective than others. Hormone pellet therapy is one of several methods used to administer bioidentical hormones. Other methods for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) include patches, gels, pills, creams, sprays, vaginal inserts, or injections.

      Whatever the cause of your hormonal imbalance, Biote’s Hormone Pellet Therapy is the most effective and natural method for restoring hormonal balance in both men and women.

      Why is Biote Hormone Pellet Therapy a better option? Compounded Hormone Pellet Therapy can be easily customized by your doctor, through Biote, to fit your specific needs – without the side effects of synthetic hormones. It is an implant inserted beneath the skin that dissolves over time, gradually releasing the necessary hormones into your body, much like your body does. BHRT pellets are a long-lasting solution, with pellets only requiring insertion once every few months. This ensures a steady release of hormones and a consistent level of symptom relief.

      Many patients have had success reducing the occurrence of any side effects by beginning at the lowest level then gradually increasing their hormone levels until they achieve maximum effect without side effects.

      Conditions Related to Low Testosterone Levels

      The goal of Low T treatment is to correct hormone imbalance – specifically Low Testosterone levels. But there are so many other medical conditions that benefit from hormone balancing when you correct Low T, including:

      • Sexual dysfunction, including low sex-drive or lack of pleasure from sex
      • Erectile dysfunction
      • Andropause
      • Mental health and mood disorders
      • Insulin resistance or diabetes
      • Osteoporosis and loss of bone density
      • Certain heart conditions
      • Loss of muscle mass (and strength)
      • Adrenal or thyroid disorders
      • Sleep problems

      Once your testosterone levels are in balance, you will – like most men – experience not only an improved sex life, but more energy, more mental clarity, and better health.

      Who Should Avoid Hormonal Treatment for Low T?

      You should avoid any form of BHRT delivered in any form, including Hormone Pellet Therapy, if you have experienced a history of:

      • High blood pressure
      • Heart disease
      • Stroke
      • Blood clots
      • Certain cancers or history of cancers

      It may also pose a risk if you have these conditions in your family history.

      What to Expect from Your Low T Consultation?

      We will take a medical history – and explore any other options you may have tried to balance hormones or address symptoms you didn’t realize were caused by hormone imbalance. You will receive a thorough consultation prior to treatment, and you should ask any questions you might have. We will most likely conduct medical tests to measure hormone levels and check for any conditions that may be underlying your symptoms.

      If we diagnose Low Testosterone and elect to use Hormone Pellet Therapy to address your Low T, the process is safe, and you should experience minimal discomfort during your implant.

      Hormone Pellet Therapy requires no pre-op or post-op steps. Once the implant is completed, you can immediately return to your daily routine. Hormone Pellets are implanted subcutaneously (under the skin), usually in the hip or buttocks. The procedure is generally pain-free and takes seconds to implant. We clean and sterilize the area, provide numbing relief to your skin, if necessary, create a small incision, insert a pellet, then close the tiny incision with a single stitch, if necessary, then cover it with a steri-strip or small bandage.

      For optimal results with Biote Hormone Pellet Therapy, we typically recommend pellet implants every three months – though with some people it is required less or more often, but three to four implants a year is normal. You should begin experiencing hormonal balancing almost immediately and feel noticeable effects within a few weeks. Expect full optimization within six months, usually after the second implanted pellet – balanced by Biote!
