If you’re a male age 16 years or older and are struggling with a hormone imbalance, there are many treatment options available. Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Testosterone, in particular, plays an essential role in the male body—even small fluctuations can cause negative side effects throughout the body.
Approximately 39% of men over the age of 45 have low testosterone and struggle with not only sexual side effects, but also declining cognitive ability, energy levels, strength and bone health.
Effective treatment options for Low T
There are many safe and noninvasive ways to treat Low T and hormone imbalances caused by hypogonadism, including:
- Testosterone pills
You may choose between capsules that are swallowed or testosterone pills that are placed between your gum and inner cheek twice a day. These allow testosterone to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Intramuscular testosterone injections are doctor-administered into the muscles of your buttocks every 2-3 weeks. Results are typically realized between 3-6 months from the start of treatment.
Pellets are implanted under the skin, typically near the hip or buttocks, to allow for a slow release of testosterone. These are replaced every 3-6 months.
Topical creams or gels are applied daily to the upper arms, shoulders or thighs. It is important to wash your hands after application and cover the treated skin with clothing to prevent exposing others to testosterone.
Testosterone patches are applied to the skin and replaced every 24 hours, typically in the evening, and release testosterone into the skin slowly.
