Men’s Hormone Replacement Therapy
As men get older, its normal for their hormone levels to lower. This lowering of testosterone, although natural, can often cause a series of unwanted side effects. While patients in the past would have to go to a specialist to receive treatment, patients who see Dr. Dugan can receive the care they deserve from the comfort and convenience of their own homes.
Dr. Dugan is happy to offer testosterone replacement therapy to men who wish to replenish their testosterone levels and reduce their unwanted andropause side effects.
What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone is the male sex hormone in the body responsible for normal sexual development in men. It also promotes facial and body hair growth, a deep voice, and muscle mass development. Testosterone levels typically begin to deplete as men reach the age of 30 to 40. By the time some men reach their 50’s, they may find themselves experiencing fatigue, loss of muscle mass, depression, and more.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is the range of nonsurgical treatments that allow men to restore their testosterone to normal levels. TRT treatments can provide men relief from their symptoms within just weeks, allowing them to live their lives to the fullest once again. Dr. Dugan is happy to provide men with TRT treatments via telehealth and home visits.

What Can I Expect During my Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Your testosterone replacement therapy treatments are going to begin with bloodwork. This blood panel will provide Dr. Dugan with the information he needs to tailor a treatment plan to you and your body. Following your bloodwork, Dr. Dugan will go over the testosterone replacement therapy treatment options with you.
Testosterone replacement therapy treatments come in many different forms including gels, creams, pellets, injections, and patches.
