What is Testosterone?

Hormone Replacement-Obesity

What are the causes of low testosterone?

Testosterone levels may start to decrease at about ages 30-40 naturally. Other causes of low testosterone include:

  • Certain Medications (for example chemotherapy)
  • Testicular cancer or injury
  • Problems with certain glands in the brain that control hormone production (pituitary and hypothalamus)
  • Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
  • Obesity
  • Chronic diseases, other disorders, treatments, or infection

What are the treatment options?

Your provider will take a complete history and perform an assessment. If appropriate, blood work is ordered to determine if you are a good candidate for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). TRT may improve symptoms in some men. Routine labs and ongoing surveillance with the provider are mandatory. Risks and benefits of TRT replacement is discussed at your appointment. If there is no change in symptoms after three months, therapy may be discontinued.

Why get TRT at Suvità?

Here at Suvità, we offer a membership direct care program. This means that you will get our utmost and undivided attention. Our patients are always a priority, unlike what you may feel at a typical doctor’s office. No one is rushed through their appointments and our patients are actively involved in their care. We take time to listen and examine all possible treatments and their outcomes.

In addition, qualifying patients will be scheduled for a telehealth consultation with urologist Dr. Alexander Sokol for their second appointment. Dr. Sokol is a Diplomat of the American Board of Urology and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). He has over 15 years of experience treating urological conditions in both men and women, addressing sexual health, and hormone replacement therapy.

What other treatments may be right for me?

IV therapies with amino acids, B-vitamins, essential minerals, and antioxidants are available to boost energy, recovery, performance, and sexual health. Important amino acids such as L-arginine is converted to nitric oxide in the body. Nitric Oxide helps blood vessels to relax. Improving blood flow to the arteries of the penis is essential for normal erectile function.

Vitamin B12 injections are also available to keep the nervous system healthy. Vitamin B12 deficiency causes the nerves in the penis to become damaged making it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection. Vitamin B12 also plays an important role in the production of red blood cells.

What is a P-shot?

P-shot (Platelet Rich Plasma) penile injections is a treatment that uses your own plasma rich in growth factors to heal tissue. Healing damaged tissue increases blood flow to the area resulting in stronger erections, amplified sensation, and an enhanced penile appearance. Subsequently, this assists in restoring function and making you feel more confident!

Other Pharmacological Treatments

There are some medications that are commonly prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction in men. When indicated these prescriptions may be considered. A proper medication reconciliation will be done by the provider to ensure no potential interactions. Certain IV therapies may not be appropriate in this setting.
