Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone is a crucial hormone responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics, maintaining muscle mass, bone density, red blood cell production, and overall well-being. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a medical treatment designed to increase the levels of testosterone in men who have low testosterone levels, as confirmed by a simple blood draw.
Low testosterone levels in men can occur due to various reasons, including age-related decline, certain medical conditions (such as testicular disorders), chemotherapy, and other factors. When a man’s testosterone levels fall significantly below the normal range, it can lead to a range of symptoms such as low libido, fatigue, reduced muscle mass, mood changes, and decreased bone density.
TRT involves introducing exogenous (external) testosterone into the body to bring testosterone levels back into a normal range. There are different methods for administering TRT, including injections, pellets, and creams. By injection is the most common method, and injections can be done on a scheduled basis in clinic.
One of the most noticeable effects of TRT can be an improvement in sexual function. Men with low testosterone levels often experience decreased libido (sex drive) and erectile dysfunction. TRT can help restore sexual desire and enhance erectile function in those cases. Testosterone also plays a key role in muscle development and maintenance. TRT can lead to increased muscle mass and strength, particularly when combined with regular exercise and strength training.
It’s important to note that TRT should be prescribed and monitored by a qualified physician, as improper use or dosing can lead to potential risks and side effects. Potential side effects of TRT can include acne, fluid retention, mood swings, changes in cholesterol levels, increased risk of blood clots, and decreased fertility.
Dr. Thompson will perform a thorough medical evaluation and design a personalized testosterone replacement therapy program based on your lab testing and individual symptoms to help balance your testosterone levels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment.

These hormones come in various forms, including pills, patches, creams, injections, and pellets. Each delivery method has their own unique benefits. Our physician will tailor your treatments and will recommend the best method to fit your needs.

These imbalances can be caused by a wide range of issues. When most men and women reach their 40’s and 50’s, many of their hormone producing glands such as ovaries, testicles, thyroid gland, and adrenals gradually produce less and less hormones over time. Stress, lack of exercise, poor eating habits, environment, obesity, and addiction to substances are some other common contributing factors to hormonal imbalances. However, aging and diet are usually the main causes.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalances may include low energy and fatigue, low libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of strength and muscle mass, increased body fat, mood swings and changes, depression, decreased bone density, difficulty concentrating, reduced facial and body hair growth, reduced sperm count, and decreased testicle size.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) can potentially offer a range of benefits for men with low testosterone levels. It’s important to note that individual responses to TRT can vary, and not all individuals may experience all of these benefits.

Some of the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy include: increased energy levels, restored and increased libido, restored hair loss, improved sexual function, increased lean muscle mass, reduced body fat, increased mental alertness and cognitive function, normalized weight, boosted metabolism, decreased body fat, regained skin elasticity, reduced depression, anxiety, and irritability, eased joint pain, decrease in hot flashes and night sweats, and reduced risk of bone fractures.
Yes, testosterone replacement therapy is very safe. We only use hormones from FDA-regulated 503a compounding pharmacies. TRT has been used for decades to treat symptoms and manage hormonal imbalances and low testosterone. All hormone programs are developed and overseen by Dr. Mayra Thompson and our medical board.
There are some risks associated with using any Hormone Therapy. These risks depend on the type of hormone therapy prescribed, the dose, how long the medication is taken, and your individual health risks. In most cases, these side effects are mild and don’t require you to stop your hormone therapy.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) can have both potential benefits and risks. It’s important to work closely with our physician to monitor your progress and address any potential side effects. Some of the possible side effects of TRT include: acne and skin issues, fluid retention, mood changes, sleep apnea, increased risk of blood clots, decreased fertility, enlarged prostate, hair loss, and worsening of existing conditions.

If your symptoms are bothersome or are progressing, our physician may adjust the dosage or form of hormone therapy to help reduce the side effects. Never make changes in your therapy or cease taking it without first consulting the physician.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is not suitable for everyone, and there are certain groups of individuals who should avoid or carefully consider TRT due to potential risks and contraindications. This is why it is important to work closely with our physician for progress monitoring and symptom control.

Here are some groups of individuals who might not be suitable candidates for TRT: Men with prostate cancer, men with breast cancer, men with severe heart conditions, elevated red blood cell count, uncontrolled or severe sleep apnea, active liver disease, history of blood clots, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or men planning to conceive.

It is highly recommended that you book your lab draw for the HRT panel so your results can be ready for your consult.

Dr. Thompson will review your lab results as well as your personal health and family health history to verify your eligibility for HRT and get you started on a personalized program.

Get started on your new HRT program by booking a lab draw to test your hormone levels. You may book a lab draw Monday through Friday by calling us at 972-685-2917 or by booking online through our portal.

Pellets require a small incision for insertion. Our staff will apply a local anesthetic and will make you as comfortable as possible. The site may be sore for a day or two, but the pellets themselves should not cause any pain or discomfort. You may have slight bruising at the site afterwards, but any other pains that may arise, please call us and our nursing staff will answer any questions.

This will depend on a number of factors, including your goals, your current symptoms, your health, and your current levels. Dr. Thompson will thoroughly analyze your health at your initial consult and will go over timelines with you. HRT is a proven treatment option, but not every case is the same. Please be prepared to ask Dr. Thompson any questions you may have and she will be glad to help.

In general, there is no time limit to how long you can or may take hormone therapy. Our physician will work with you to prescribe the lowest dose of hormone therapy that will work for you, and will continue to monitor your levels and reevaluate your treatment plan as you continue with hormone therapy.

Please do not adjust your dosage or cease taking therapy without first consulting with our physician.

If you develop a new medical condition while undergoing hormone therapy, please follow up with us and our physician will set up a consult to discuss if it is still safe to continue with hormone therapy.

Along with hormone therapy, your personalized treatment plan may include vitamin infusions and injections, oral supplements, gut health optimization, and lifestyle changes like sleep, stress, exercise, and diet. Depending on your symptoms and health history, our physician may recommend additional bloodwork to test for deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids in the body. These nutrients help the endocrine system function properly, and even form the building blocks of naturally produced hormones.

Along with Vitalife’s standard New Client Form packet, you will be required to complete Dr. Thompson’s health intake forms prior to your first consultation with Dr. Thompson. It is recommended that you get your blood drawn for the HRT hormone levels test prior to booking your consultation.
