Bio-Identical Hormone Regeneration For Men

Balancing hormones for men is a special program designed by Dr. Lander who has over 30 years of experience in replacing hormones. We focus on replacement when needed and ideally regeneration when possible to help the body make its own natural hormones. Certain patients may benefit from replacement with bio-identical hormones that are exactly the same biological substance that the body makes naturally, rather than pharmaceutical hormones that are modified in the laboratory. 

 

Men naturally go through a decline in hormone production in midlife and sometimes even younger. This is called Andropause. Sometimes it is quite dramatic and can result in a sexual decline and significant detrimental changes to your health and body. Perhaps you recognize many of the symptoms:

 

Are you feeling fatigue or experiencing difficulty losing weight?

Have you felt depressed or had mood swings?

Is your sex drive decreased and erection quality diminished?

What about difficulty with concentration, mental focus and multi-tasking?

 

When Testosterone declines, you may experience changes in your sports performance, muscle mass and body composition (weight gain around the middle and over the chest area). Many symptoms that are commonly ignored or treated with pharmaceuticals are actually related to the changes we begin to experience due to hormonal imbalances associated with normal aging. 

 

“Low T” is also common in patients with obesity, diabetes and other chronic illnesses, chronic pain and chronic stress.

 

The hormone system is a complex network: Changing one hormone affects all the others so the regeneration program must be methodical and comprehensive. Often several hormones must be restored.

Methods of Male Hormone Replacement

Creams

We have specially compounded testosterone creams using the latest technology to provide steady absorption and distribution for optimal effects. These creams can be compounded specially with other ingredients based on individual needs such as preventing conversion into other hormones.

Pellets

Pellets are compressed male hormones into small cylinders that can be implanted under the skin. The pellets are inserted in a brief office procedure associated using local anesthetic with minimal discomfort. Success with pellet therapy requires a fundamental knowledge of dosing and the various insertion methods. Patients report that pellets inserted under the skin maintain the highest steady state levels with maximum convenience, requiring re-insertion only a couple times per year.

Shots

Injections can be either given at our office or we can train our patients to do their own convenient self-injections. This is a very popular and effective method to replace testosterone in men.

Frequently Asked Questions For Men

Are Bio-Identical hormones safe?

Bio-identical hormone replacement is natural and very safe if supervised carefully. Normal levels of hormones in men are associated with mental, sexual, and physiologic effects that are vital to good health and quality of life. These are the exact same compounds your body would be making naturally under optimal functioning conditions.

What does Testosterone do for men?

Most women need a healthy balance of estrogen, progesterone, and also testosterone. Symptoms in men who lack adequate testosterone may include weight gain, mood swings, fatigue, erection problems, diminished libido, loss of muscle, and changes in mental acuity.

What about other hormones?

It is important to identify other hormonal imbalances such as pituitary, thyroid or adrenal stress related hormones to optimize a person’s well-being. Hormones can influence each other and the same hormone can have different effects on different parts of the body. A simple blood test can help sort out the situation and lays the foundation for a replacement plan that makes good medical sense and gets results.

How are hormones replaced?

Hormones can be replaced with biologically identical agents that can be given to men as compounded daily creams, a slow release system consisting of injected pellets placed under the skin every few months, and also injections.

Is ``pellet`` therapy the most convenient method?

Patients will report that testosterone pellets inserted under the skin maintain the highest steady state levels with maximum convenience. The pellets are inserted using local anesthetic in a brief office procedure associated with minimal discomfort. Dr. Lander is one of the few physicians in this region of California that has extensive experience with pellet therapy.

How long does it take to get results?

Treatment often makes a dramatic difference very early on in a person’s sense of wellbeing. The effects of the hormonal regeneration program are optimized when combined with good nutrition, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.

How much does it cost and does insurance cover it?

Unfortunately insurance companies do not recognize the value of this level of customized care. Patient fees include medications, evaluation, monitoring of progress and ongoing surveillance. Our office can discuss financial arrangements when consultations are scheduled.

Are you feeling fatigue or experiencing difficulty losing weight?

Have you felt depressed or had mood swings?

Are you having trouble dealing with menopausal changes?

What about difficulty concentrating and remembering?

Does your skin have less elasticity than it used to?

 

When your hormones change, you might notice your skin feels different or you may experience changes in your muscles and body composition. Women may start wondering where their libido went.
