Testosterone is a hormone produced naturally in the body. In men, testosterone plays an important role in sexual development and fertility. It's also involved in the production of physical strength and muscle mass. Low levels of testosterone can lead to decreased libido, infertility, depression and fatigue.
Bioidentical testosterone is made from plant-based compounds derived from yams and soy beans. It has the same properties as natural testosterone and is believed to be safer than synthetic hormones used for hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Bioidentical hormones are custom-compounded for each individual based on their unique needs.
Bioidentical testosterone can be used for a variety of conditions, such as:
The use of bioidentical hormones requires close monitoring with regular blood tests and dose adjustments over time. As with any hormone treatment, there can be side effects including acne, hair loss, weight gain or mood swings. Therefore patients should always consult a board certified healthcare professional before taking any form of bioidentical hormone treatment.
