When it comes to prevention and early detection, men's health often takes a back seat to women's health. Men are less likely to discuss health issues and are reluctant to take action if they feel something isn't quite right. Men are also more likely to use alcohol, smoke and lead less healthy lifestyles. Most men put off routine check ups and wait until something is ailing them before seeing a doctor. Females are also more likely to have a primary care doctor than males. Many times they don't realize that the way they are feeling and changes in their health are normal in the aging process and there are solutions to these issues.
There are a number of commercially available testosterone replacement treatments. These treatments are medications mass-produced by pharmaceutical company as a one-size-fits-all treatment option. Not everyone's body will respond the same way to these medications and often have unwanted side effects. At Champ's Pharmacy, we can compound a customized Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) solution to suit your specific hormonal needs. Your physician will evaluate your serum or saliva tests and hormone evaluation worksheet, interpret your results and, working with your pharmacist, your care team will determine an individualized course of treatment for you. Then, with your healthcare provider's prescription, our compounding pharmacists can prepare hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms uniquely formulated just for you.
Hormone replacement is not only essential for women but for men as well. Men's testosterone levels peak in their late teens and begin to gradually decline after the age of 30. When testosterone drops, a range of symptoms and complications can occur. Signs of low testosterone can be subtle and are sometimes mistaken as a natural part of aging.
Testosterone is a hormone that is mostly produced in the testicles and is responsible for stimulating sperm production and sex drive as well as building muscles and bone mass. Because testosterone affects so many functions, its decrease can bring about significant physical and emotional changes.
