Testosterone Therapy

Are you a man struggling with fatigue, weight gain, difficulty sleeping or decreased sex drive? You may be suffering from symptoms of “Low T,” or low testosterone. Testosterone therapy for men can provide relief for these symptoms that are often associated with aging.

What causes low testosterone?

Just as women experience a decline in hormone levels as they age, men experience a decrease in their testosterone levels beginning at around age 30. By 60, natural testosterone production has often dropped to about half of early adult levels. Studies have shown that over 13 million men in the U.S. suffer from “Low T” or low testosterone.

Symptoms of low testosterone can develop slowly, over several years, and may include:

  • Decreased sexual drive and performance
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Hair loss
  • Decreased muscle mass and tone
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Fatigue and lack of motivation
  • Depression, irritability and mood swings
  • Loss of sense of “well-being”

How does testosterone therapy work?

Multicare Plus offers testosterone therapy for men in the Bangor, PA area. Patients will undergo a complete examination and have an extensive hormone laboratory panel performed.

Multicare Plus offers two choices for male testosterone therapy — weekly, self-injected, compounded testosterone, or pellet-therapy testosterone, which is placed by Multicare Plus and can provide steady-state blood levels for 4-6 months.

After testosterone therapy is prescribed, follow up tests will be conducted to ensure symptom relief with the lowest possible dosage of hormones.

  • Increased sex drive and sexual performance

  • Increased energy, stamina, and endurance
