Hormone Therapies

Testosterone

Treatment options that we offer include Intramuscular or Subcutaneous injections, topical creams and gels, topical patches and buccal tablets. The preferred method with greatest bioavailability is by injection method.  Patients who have sensitivities to testosterone can supplement with a less androgenic compound such as Oxandrolone and Nandrolone


Human Growth Hormone

hGH therapy is only administered by Subcutaneous injections and on a daily basis, similar to the way a diabetic injects insulin.  Just like insulin, it cannot be taken by mouth because it is a protein molecule that will degrade completely once it is exposed to enzymes in the digestive tract.  

Anti-Estrogens

Anti-Estrogen medications are available in 2 basic categories, those that inhibit Aromatase enzyme and those that block Estrogen receptors.  Examples of these are Arimadex and Clomid. They are all taken orallyy, and can be customized to any specific strength by a compounding pharmacy for the specific individual.

HCG

Human Chorionotropic Gonadotropin is  administered by injection only.  It is too a peptide (protein) hormone. It can be take Intramuscularly or Subcutaneously and is often given 2-3x per week along with Testosterone therapy to preserve testicular size and fertility. 

GH Releasing Hormones

  A more affordable and alternative way of increasing GH levels is by administering Growth Hormone Releasing Factors.  Like hGH, these  are peptide hormonesn that need to be injected subcutaneously on a daily basis.  They stimulate the pituitary to produce more of its own GH.

Thyroid Hormone

Thyroid hormone is taken in tablet form on a daily basis and is available as synthetic T3, synthetic T4, synthetic T3+T4 and dessicated thyroid that is  derived from animal glands and also contain a combination of T3 and T4.  The choice is usually based on the patient's individual metabolic profile, lab testing and prior response to therapy.
