Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Scottsdale

Testosterone is an anabolic hormone naturally produced by the body. Both men and women produce testosterone, which plays an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration, but men have much higher levels responsible for many more functions, so it is often considered the “male” hormone responsible for a man’s health, virility, vitality, and appearance. In men, testosterone is essential for everything from red blood cell and sperm formation to sexual and reproductive function.

Individual testosterone levels in men will vary with age, genetics, and lifestyle factors, such as sleep habits and diet. Testosterone typically spikes during puberty, peaking between the ages of 18 and 20, then gradually declining at about a rate of 1% per year, a phenomenon most men begin to “feel” around age 30. As hormones like testosterone start to decline, various systems of the body will also begin to experience a decline in performance and function.

Lowering testosterone can be responsible for many symptoms usually attributed to age or stress, such as:

  • Reduced muscle mass and increased fat mass
  • Lack of energy
  • Poor memory and focus
  • Mood changes and anxiety
  • Inadequate wound healing and tissue repair
  • Reduced sexual desire

Low testosterone levels and testosterone deficiency have also been linked to conditions such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes. Testosterone is also responsible for healthy neurological function and improved pyscho-social and behavioral dynamics.

There is a solution, however, with testosterone replacement therapy from The Hormone Zone.

Moreover, our comprehensive approach means we address all of your zones of hormone imbalance simultaneously, instead of focusing on only one or two, ensuring optimal function for your unique body. By combining your testosterone replacement therapy with additional solutions from The Hormone Zone, such as HGH therapy or bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, under the care and guidance of your physician, you can maximize your results for total-body care that lasts.

Types of Testosterone Replacement Therapies

Testosterone replacement therapy is a proven, evidence-based solution for correcting testosterone imbalances and deficiencies. By restoring the levels of testosterone to more appropriate levels, testosterone replacement therapy can relieve or even reverse the symptoms of low testosterone and produce noticeable improvements in alertness, bone density, mood, energy, sexual function, and overall well-being.

Testosterone replacement is available in several forms, including injections, oral medications, topicals such as gels and transdermal or buccal patches, intranasal, and implantable subcutaneous pellets.

The Hormone Zone offers a variety of solutions for testosterone replacement, and we’ll perform an in-depth, comprehensive analysis to help determine which is right for you for optimal results.

Testosterone cypionate injections is a leading-edge protocol that delivers dramatically better results than traditional testosterone injections without the fluctuations in hormone levels. Testosterone cypionate injections deliver steady and consistent levels of testosterone.

Testosterone subcutaneous pellets are one of the most effective methods of testosterone replacement. Placed directly under the skin via a small incision, tiny pellets containing bioidentical hormones are gradually absorbed into the blood flow, releasing a steady and constant flow of testosterone for 4 to 6 months.

A Synergistic Approach to Health at The Hormone Zone

Testosterone replacement therapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution, nor is it a quick fix. For maximum results and optimal function, testosterone replacement therapy should be just part of a broader and more comprehensive approach to better health.

At The Hormone Zone, we complement your testosterone replacement therapy with proven treatments like:

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) therapy

HCG therapy uses bioidentical hormones to optimize function of the testicles, primarily in encouraging additional production of testosterone and sperm. HCG therapy helps counteract the testicular shrinkage and retraction that can be a side effect of testosterone replacement therapy.

By integrating HCG therapy into your testosterone replacement regimen, you can minimize or entirely prevent testicular shrinkage and retraction while enjoying additional benefits like:

  • Improved sense of well-being
  • Mood stabilization
  • Improved testicular function and testosterone production
  • Preservation of sperm production and fertility

Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) medications

Medications to treat erectile dysfunction, such as Cialis (Tadalafil) can become more effective when combined with testosterone replacement therapy. While low testosterone is not the only cause of ED, symptoms of low T such as low energy, low libido, and mood changes can lead to ED. While the PDE5 medications increase blood flow to the penis to enhance erectile function, TRT relieves the symptoms of low T so that you can feel and function like you want.

Premature ejaculation (PE) solutions

PE can be a problem even with adequate hormone levels if the root cause is at the tissue and cellular level. The P-Shot® can help restore and regenerate new blood vessels and nerve growth and improve erectile function, sensitivity, responsiveness, and size of the penis. Combining the P-Shot® with TRT can significantly reduce sexual dysfunction with longer-lasting results and without the side effects associated with oral medications. 

Nandrolone Decanoate exogenous steroid injections

Nandrolone Decanoate is a synthetic androgenic anabolic hormone derived from testosterone that can be used as an upgrade to testosterone replacement for men and as an alternative for women. Developed to combat muscle wasting conditions, Nandrolone Decanoate can help promote the anabolic effects of testosterone–including muscle growth, recovery, and bone density–while minimizing the less-desirable masculinization (androgenic) characteristics such as hair loss, facial and body hair growth, deepening voice, and acne.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Men experience hormonal deficiencies just like women do, with the same level of problems. Testosterone deficiency is unfortunately a rampant problem and more and more men are realizing that their levels are low and suboptimal, even as early as their 20’s. Like never before, men are starting to seek out the help that they need and deserve. Testosterone Replacement Therapy can utterly change a man’s life, improving his overall health, and optimizing his focus and attitude. At The Hormone Zone, we will choose the best form of Hormone Replacement Therapy for you.

This is a very common form of Testosterone Replacement Therapy for men, but all too often it is used incorrectly and hormone levels are very inconsistent. And men will frequently report that they do not feel good when on injections. However, at The Hormone Zone, we have figured out a superior way to prescribe testosterone injections and have been able to keep hormone levels extremely stable.

After more than 14 years practicing medicine and utilizing Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) with men, I am very convinced that it does not cause or increase the risk of prostate cancer in men. In fact, this is not news. Many studies from the late 1990’s and early 2000’s had me relatively convinced of this fact, even when I had just started practicing. Despite the research, at the time, there was still an old dogmatic medical bias about testosterone and prostate cancer that lingered. But over the past decade, more and more research has confirmed that TRT does not increase the risk of prostate cancer. In fact, TRT can potentially lower your risk for prostate cancer.

There are multiple recent studies that demonstrate the fact that TRT does not cause prostate cancer. We have listed only some of the most relevant ones here:

From: “Late onset hypogonadism (LOH): Prostate safety. 2020.”

TRT could be considered for most men with LOH regardless of their history of prostate disease. However, a discussion about the risks and benefits of TRT is always advised, especially in men with PCa. Appropriate monitoring is mandatory. ___

From “Testosterone treatment and the risk of aggressive prostate cancer in men with low testosterone levels. 2018.”

Among men with low testosterone levels and normal PSA, testosterone treatment was not associated with an increased risk of aggressive or any CaP. (Prostate Cancer) ___

From: “Testosterone treatment is not associated with increased risk of prostate cancer or worsening of lower urinary tract symptoms: prostate health outcomes in the Registry of Hypogonadism in Men. 2016.”

Results support prostate safety of TRT in newly diagnosed men with HG. ___

From: “Recurrence of prostate cancer in patients receiving testosterone supplementation for hypogonadism. 2015.”

TRT was administered in a variety of dosages and dosage forms for up to nine years to manage hypogonadal symptoms. There is insufficient evidence to withhold TRT in certain populations of men with a history of prostate cancer. ___

From: “A new era of testosterone and prostate cancer: from physiology to clinical implications. 2014.”

The long-held belief that PCa risk is related to high serum androgen concentrations can no longer be supported. Current evidence indicates that maximal androgen-stimulated PCa growth is achieved at relatively low serum testosterone concentrations. It may therefore be reasonable to consider testosterone therapy in selected men with PCa and symptomatic hypogonadism. ___

It is argued that TRT actually helps to LOWER the risk for prostate cancer:

From: “Challenging beliefs of testosterone therapy and prostate cancer. 2019.”

The relationship between testosterone therapy and prostate cancer continues to challenge historic and current beliefs. A new cohort analysis revealed a ~33% reduction in prostate cancer incidence in men with increased testosterone use. The mechanisms underlying this protective effect are unclear, but these findings challenge current paradigms and warrant further investigation.

At The Hormone Zone, each patient is individually assessed including a detailed history. Again, the work of Dr. Morgentaler and others has suggested that Testosterone therapy is safe in men with a history of prostate cancer.
