In men, hormone levels fluctuate several times throughout the day and a lifetime. Healthy males tend to have a 24-hour hormone cycle. T levels peak in the morning and gradually decline throughout the day. Identifying the ideal testosterone level for men can be tricky due to the constant changes.
Technically, men with total T results lower than 300 ng/dL are diagnosed with low testosterone (low T). Researchers suggest anything between 270-1200 ng/dL is ideal, but hormones are nuanced. Men can experience changes like decreased libido, hair loss, fatigue, and weight gain, but have levels within a normal range.
At Renew Vitality, we help men experiencing the array of unwanted symptoms related to low T to live healthier and happier lives. As one of the nation’s leading providers of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), our clients can improve their mood, energy levels, and sexual function, develop leaner muscle, and become more focused.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
HRT is a non-invasive medical solution that increases and optimizes current T levels by supplying the body with bio-identical synthetic medication like testosterone or sermorelin.
There are several methods for administering the medication to treat the symptoms of hormone imbalances. The popular choices are patches, gels, pellets, and injections. Depending on the client and their goals, a doctor will recommend the best course for effectively raising T levels and restoring balance.
At Renew Vitality, our clients and physicians prefer injections. The more precise the dosage, the more effective the medication will be at reversing symptoms. Injections allow physicians to prescribe very precise dosages, and our clients can administer them in the comfort of their own home.
Topical solutions like gels and patches can also be applied at home, but they come with added risks. Topical hormone medication can be dangerous if women or children accidentally come in contact with it. If women who are pregnant, nursing, or may become pregnant are exposed to the treatment, it can harm the development of a fetus. Women and children can develop masculine traits like acne, aggressive behavior, hair growth, and enlarged genitals.
Regardless of the method of HRT, men can experience results in as little as two to five weeks after treatment. While some clinics only administer medication, our physicians design personalized wellness programs that include nutrition and exercise plans for better results than medication alone.
Getting the Best Hormone Replacement Therapy in Bergen County
Bergen has a rich history and is one of the first four original counties in New Jersey, founded in 1675. The county gets its name from the original Dutch settlers who first landed there. It translates to “place of safety” or “hill,” which makes sense when you consider it has over 9,000 acres of beautiful hills and green space.
Bergen residents have one of the highest-rated educational systems in the country. The county is home to award-winning schools like Bergen County Academies (BCA). BCA is a National Blue Ribbon School, a member of the National Consortium of Secondary STEM schools, and a Model School in the Arts. In 2011 Newsweek reported BCA juniors had the second-highest SAT scores in the country.
There are over 940,000 residents in Bergen. The median age for Bergen county residents is 42. According to the American Urological Association, men between the ages of 40 and 64 are being tested and prescribed hormone replacement therapy more than any other age group; yet, there are only 21 clinics to help men over 30 in the area.
Getting the best HRT in Bergen County will require some research. Since low T is incredibly common, most men start by reaching out to other men for recommendations. There’s a chance that you have a close friend or family member who has undergone TRT nearby and can refer you to a clinic they trust.
The internet is also another excellent resource for narrowing your selection. Search for private groups on social media dedicated to connecting men with clinics in the county. They are normally filled with suggestions from men who have gone through the treatment.
Create a list of three to five clinics and give them a call. At Renew Vitality, our concierge staff of wellness professionals is dedicated to helping men figure out if hormone replacement therapy is the right choice for them.
