It’s no secret that men start to slow down naturally as they age. It definitely doesn’t happen overnight, but perhaps you’re starting to notice that your performance in certain areas isn’t what it used to be. Whether it’s not having as much energy or motivation in your daily life, struggling at the gym, or even problems with your sexual health, it happens to us all.
All of these issues are potential telltale signs of a testosterone deficiency. While many men associate low testosterone as simply a sexual issue, the fact is that low testosterone impacts many different facets of your everyday life. However, you don’t have to accept that you’ll never be the kind of guy you once were. Help is available, and scientifically proven treatments can provide enormous benefits for men—regardless of their age.
One of the most effective solutions for treating low testosterone is testosterone optimization treatments. At The Edge at Pinnacle Point, our providers are adept at determining the root of your issues and finding your optimal hormone levels. Read on to learn more about the causes and effects of low testosterone, and how testosterone optimization can help you get your Edge back!
Causes & Effects of Low Testosterone
The number one cause of low testosterone isn’t something you can control, unfortunately. Aging, especially when you get past age 30, is when your body naturally starts to decline in its testosterone production. Usually, you’ll experience about a 1 percent decrease in testosterone each year of your life once you hit the age of 30.
However, aging itself isn’t the only cause of low testosterone. In fact, there are a number of potential reasons why someone might have some sort of deficiency that requires testosterone optimization treatment.
Some people lose testosterone due to an injury, either by direct trauma to the testes or an interruption in blood supply. Others see a decrease due to illness and diseases, metabolic disorders, chemotherapy treatment, medications, and numerous additional causes. There are also certain lifestyle factors that can affect your testosterone production, such as being overweight or obese, heavy drinking, or a stressful work/home life.
And contrary to what many myths and misconceptions might say, low testosterone isn’t strictly a sexual issue, or more specifically, an erectile dysfunction issue. While it’s true that a deficiency may affect your sex drive and cause ED, there are far more common symptoms that you may be missing.
Low testosterone symptoms can include:
- Mood changes or a depressed mood
- Lack of motivation
- Loss of muscle mass & strength
- Increased body fat
- Thinning hair
- Foggy memory
- And trouble sleeping
Due in part to the misconceptions surrounding low testosterone, many men brush these symptoms aside as just a fact of their daily lives. If you’re finding yourself struggling to stay in shape the way that you used to, or if you’re having trouble with your focus or energy levels, testosterone optimization at The Edge could be the solution you’re looking for!
How Testosterone Optimization Works
While our providers at The Edge can’t stop you or your body from aging, we can mitigate and often reverse its effects! This is where testosterone optimization through testosterone replacement therapy comes in. The process begins by meeting with a provider for your one-on-one appointment, where we’ll better understand your needs, challenges, and goals.
The goal of testosterone optimization is to replace your current testosterone deficit. The caveat is, however, that each person has a different “optimal” testosterone level. Many clinics or “big chain” low testosterone clinics don’t properly consider proper, individualized dosing, leading to ineffective results.
In fact, there are numerous cases of people receiving substandard care in the form of the amount of testosterone prescribed and the frequency of their dosage. Worse yet, there are instances where less experienced providers prescribe estrogen blockers and various hormonal substances, which can have serious health risks and side effects.
This is what makes testosterone optimization from The Edge a unique and highly successful treatment option. Following your initial consultation, we’ll perform a blood draw to determine your baseline testosterone levels. From there, we prescribe an individualized dosage to help you achieve your desired results.
We take each aspect of your treatment into consideration, from the amount of testosterone we prescribe, to the dosage and frequency with which we prescribe it. The end result is real, noticeable improvements in numerous aspects of your life. Many of our patients notice that they have more energy, have better workouts, sleep better, and even have an increased sex drive and performance!
The most important aspect of treatment is that it’s entirely safe when administered in clinically correct dosages. There are many myths and misconceptions about the potential risks of optimization through testosterone replacement therapy; it’s important to note that treatment isn’t recommended for everyone. If you are a candidate for treatment, The Edge takes every measure to ensure patients are safe, comfortable, and equipped for lasting results.
The Edge Can Help You Wherever You’re At!
Even if you don’t live near our men’s clinic in Rogers, you can still receive comprehensive treatment and guidance from providers at The Edge! We’ve helped clients throughout our home state of Arkansas and across the country. Whether you’re in Little Rock, Dallas, or halfway across the country, you can experience the benefits of testosterone optimization.
All it takes is one appointment at our clinic to get started. Yes, you will need to be in person for the appointment for us to establish care and get your initial lab work completed. But when you do come into town, there are a number of local attractions you can check out to make the most of your stay.
After establishing your care, you can continue to receive all of your intramuscular injections and supplements at our clinic in Northwest Arkansas if you choose. We can also send your injections for testosterone optimization, as well as additional supplements and prescriptions, through the mail. When administering your intramuscular injections yourself, it’s important to ensure that you’re doing so directly into your gluteal area, shoulder, or thigh.
How Can I Supplement My Testosterone Optimization?
As effective as testosterone optimization and replacement therapy can be, there are additional treatments and supplements we can provide to further enhance your results!
Sermorelin is highly effective as a supplement to your testosterone replacement therapy, particularly when it comes to sleep quality. But not only can Sermorelin help you achieve deeper, better sleep, it can also provide numerous additional benefits.
Patients have experienced improvements to their muscle mass, lean body mass, and body fat percentage by using Seromorelin tablets in conjunction with testosterone optimization. What’s more, Sermorelin has also been shown to help promote joint health and enhance recovery from injuries.
Luteinizing Hormone Support
With LH treatments through The Edge, we can boost your testosterone levels naturally by stimulating sperm production and accentuating your body’s normal male characteristics. Responsible for stimulating the leydig cells in the testes, the Luteinizing hormone (LH) is vitally important for your body’s natural testosterone production and regulation.
Peptide therapy through The Edge is another effective way to increase your body’s natural production of growth hormones. Based on your body’s own unique profile and needs, we lab-develop our synthetic peptides and ship the prescription right to your home. From there, patients should administer their peptides through a subcutaneous injection just before bed, 5 days per week.
The reason for taking your injections before bed is that, generally speaking, peptides will make you quite tired after taking them. However, the benefits are almost immediate and will provide a piggyback effect to your testosterone replacement therapy.
To round out your treatment plan, many patients find remarkable success by taking additional supplements along with their treatment plan. The supplements available at The Edge help ensure that patients get the vitamins and nutrients they need to get the most from their testosterone optimization.
Our providers may recommend supplements based on your lab work, with each product carefully evaluated to ensure lasting results and benefits.
