Men experience many hormonal changes during their lifetime. As men age, the amount of testosterone produced by their body can decrease. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for sperm production, red blood cell production, muscle growth, libido, energy levels and male sex characteristics such as a deep voice and body hair.
Lowered levels of testosterone can be characterized by symptoms such as:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Loss of libido
- Declining muscle tone
- Irritability or mood swings
If you have been diagnosed with decreased levels of testosterone, then there are many compounded medications that may help you. In consultation with your doctor and our compounding pharmacist, we can customize hormone replacement medications. For example, a transdermal gel can be compounded to deliver testosterone which can be absorbed more readily than other dosage forms.
