Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men in Nashville, TN

Recently, more and more men are seeking treatment for hormone deficiencies and imbalances, and New Life Physicians is providing the solutions they need. We provide hormone replacement treatments for men that improve their quality of life. Services offered by New Life Physicians have already helped many men in Nashville, Franklin and the surrounding area in Tennessee at our Brentwood office to address symptoms of hormone imbalances and deficiencies, restoring youthful energy and vigor.

Many studies have demonstrated that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) assists in the regeneration of cells and overall improved health. HRT also helps men control their weight while curbing the physical signs of aging. HRT also reduces the cognitive and emotional effects of hormone imbalance or deficiency. If you are experiencing mood swings, are having trouble with your weight, or if you don’t enjoy sex like you used to, HRT may be the solution for you.

Men and Testosterone

Testosterone is a male sex hormone that is required for the development of reproductive tissues in male babies. During puberty, the testicles secrete very high levels of testosterone, creating a deeper voice, increased height and increased muscle mass. By the time boys reach age 17, their testosterone levels have peaked and then remain at this level for about 10 years, after which they start to decline. By age 50, testosterone levels in most men have dropped to about half the level that their bodies produced at age 17.

Healthy testosterone levels help men maintain the following critical functions:

  • Cognitive abilities
  • The reproduction of red blood cells
  • Healthy sleep patterns
  • Increased bone density
  • Increased muscle mass and strength
  • Sperm production
  • Libido and sexual performance

When testosterone levels begin to decline at around age 30, these functions may become significantly affected. Although this process is normal, many factors can cause symptoms to be extremely exaggerated or happen too early. Men who have low testosterone levels may experience symptoms similar to those of women going through menopause, such as tender breasts and hot flashes. Male testosterone replacement therapy may safely and effectively address and resolve all of these issues.

Male Steroid Use

Illegal use of steroids by some bodybuilders and athletes is highly dangerous when using testosterone replacement therapy. The hormone is a type of steroid referred to as androgens. Although the body naturally produces steroids, synthetic forms or anabolic steroids, are illegal to use and can have dangerous consequences.

How We Can Help With HRT

At New Life Physicians, we are committed to ensuring your health and safety above all else. Our skilled and compassionate staff will work with you to create an HRT plan that is totally safe and personalized, to help you feel and look much as you did during your younger years.

Come in and talk to Dr. Moor about HRT, discuss its advantages and disadvantages, as well as evaluate whether this treatment may be right for you. Prescription testosterone, and other HRTs, may not be suitable treatments for some men, even in cases of hormone imbalance. For example, this treatment is not suitable for men with prostate cancer. Regular exercise and a healthy diet are alternative methods to maintain optimum hormone levels for men who are not candidates for HRT.

If your doctor has deemed it safe for you to seek HRT, you no longer have to tolerate the side effects of low testosterone levels. The staff at New Life Physicians, located in Brentwood, and serving the residents of Nashville, Franklin and the surrounding area in Tennessee, are highly skilled and will work with you through every stage of your treatment to help restore your youthful zest and vigor. Contact us today.
