Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Controversies of
Traditional physicians who have not received advanced training in Anti-Aging Medicine typically believe that hormone levels should not be optimized or corrected unless they fall outside the “normal range”. The problem is that the “normal range” is typically not age-specific and includes the range of what 90% of all men tested fall into. This would mean that only 10% of all people tested would be considered either high or low.
Optimal Hormone Levels
Preventive-aging experts worldwide believe that hormones should be corrected to optimal levels for optimal functioning of the mind and body. This corresponds roughly to the 75th percentile of the hormone levels found in a healthy 25-year-old.
Both Total and Free Testosterone studies should be measured to adequately evaluate testosterone levels. Depending on the lab used, approximately 300-1000 ng/dL is given as a normal laboratory range, for men ages 20 to 70 years. Females fell in the range of 15-70 ng/dL. Free Testosterone levels average approximately 2% of the total, 55-200 pg/ml for men, and 1-10 pg/ml for women. Free Testosterone is the more valuable of the two, reflecting the amount of hormone available to perform useful work.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are created using a molecular formula identical to the body’s naturally-produced hormones. Levels of hormones like testosterone naturally decrease with age, often resulting in a lowered sexual appetite, erectile dysfunction (ED), reduced muscle mass and reduced energy levels. By managing your body’s hormones with bioidentical hormone medication, we can restore them to a healthy range and help you achieve a healthier body and more youthful appearance.
What is Human Growth Hormone?
Human growth hormone, also known as somatotropin, is the most abundant hormone made by the pituitary gland in the brain. Cells in the pituitary, known as somatotropes, produce HGH and release it into the bloodstream, where it can have a direct effect by itself on tissues and organs, or it can be absorbed by the liver and converted into various other growth factors.
