When it comes to Testosterone Replacement Therapy, Action Men’s Health offers programs which require specialist medical doctor training.
- Your program therapy will be monitored by a highly trained physician.
- You will also have easy access to highly trained staff to get answers to any immediate questions.
In order to be considered for an Action Men’s Health program, you will be required to meet one of our physicians in person for an appointment, which would cover a physical exam and consultation. This would be used with your laboratory bloodwork results to identify your therapy program.
All patient therapy will be recommended by a medical doctor based on:
- extensive specialist blood work,
- a physical exam,
- patient medical history,
- and severity of symptoms.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy can include three base medications, based on what the doctor recommends. First, our medical doctors work with different types of testosterone. The appropriate form and dosage of testosterone would be used to safely increase levels. Additional medications to ensure your natural production does not decline may also be included in your therapy. These clinically induce testosterone production in the testes, to prevent testicular shut down or atrophy. And finally, an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) may be used to reduce the action of estrogen while taking external testosterone. The AI would be used to prevent a condition called gynecomastia, or the enlargement of glandular tissue on the male chest.
Patients using testosterone should seek medical attention immediately if symptoms of a heart attack or stroke are present such as:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
- Weakness in one part or one side of the body
- Slurred speech
