Hormone Therapy for Men

No two men are alike.

Hormonal changes occur in every man as he ages. Although testosterone is a hormone found in both women and men, it is primarily associated with men’s health – and it impacts their health in more ways than just sex drive.

Fat storage, bone and muscle mass, mood swings and red blood cell production are all affected by a man’s testosterone level. As early as age 30, male testosterone levels can begin to decline. So using a compound medication, i.e. bioidentical hormones for men that have been customized to improve your testosterone level can help you retrieve a feeling of wellness that you’re accustomed to – or even one that you hadn’t achieved before. A testosterone treatment in the form of bioidentical hormones made specifically for your needs can help you:

Take the first step towards realizing your wellness goals with the help of bioidentical hormones by talking to your doctor about the common symptoms of imbalanced testosterone levels. The compounding pharmacists at Vios are here to answer any questions that you or your doctor may have about finding the right medication mix that delivers the best results for you.
