Low Testosterone FAQ
Much of aging is caused by deficiencies in many of the hormones that our bodies once produced in abundance. We replace hormones to the level of an average 25-year old male.
What is Low T Revolution all about?
We are focused on helping men live healthier, more active lives through hormone replacement, nutrition and exercise. Our patients are seeing remarkable improvements in body composition, energy level, and revitalized sex drive and performance. Our goal is to make these state-of-the-art therapies (previously available only to the very wealthy) affordable for the average person.
What exactly is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the science of replenishing hormones that are no longer being adequately produced by the body. Much of aging is caused by deficiencies in many of the hormones that our bodies once produced in abundance. Low T Revolution replaces hormones to the level of an average 25 year old male.
How long before you can actually see or feel results?
While this varies with each person, many people feel changes within just a few days. You can expect to see significant results within 4 to 6 weeks after starting a program.
How long will I need to be on these therapies?
We recommend that patients commit to the program for at least 12 months. The longer you stay on the program, the greater the results and the younger you will look and feel. You should remain on the program for as long as you want to optimize your health.
What happens if I stop the program?
If you should elect to stop, you will not experience sudden accelerated aging. Your body simply will begin to age again at a normal rate, and the benefits you have achieved will gradually fade over time.
How do I find out if I’m eligible for hormone therapy?
Before entering our program, individuals take a simple blood test which determines their hormone levels and their eligibility.
At what age should a person start such a program?
A person does not need to consider HRT until their body begins to lower its hormone production. Thirty-five is a good age to have your levels checked, because that is when levels usually begin to drop. There is no upper-limit age barrier. In fact the older the individual, the more dramatic and visible the results generally are.
Will this treatment program interfere with the other medications I’m taking?
Generally not. In fact some medications may no longer be needed. Our physician will be able to advise you on this and will be happy to consult with your own doctor.
Will your physician take over as my primary care doctor?
No. You should continue seeing your regular doctor as you have in the past.
What about all the over-the-counter growth hormone products I see advertised?
There are no oral, nasal, sublingual, or transdermal growth hormone products that have any merit whatsoever. Many of the companies that are promoting “Oral HGH” or “Nasal Spray HGH” are under federal investigation. The only effective delivery method for HGH is by subdermal injection.
Is all this legal?
Yes. HGH was approved by the FDA in 1996 for adult growth hormone deficiency. Testosterone has been similarly approved for many years. These hormones are available only by prescription.
Do we accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance. Upon request we will be happy to provide you with a properly coded medical bill. This document should help if you wish to pursue reimbursement from your insurance company.
What are the health risks of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Recent studies suggest a link between testosterone therapy and an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Patients using testosterone should seek medical attention immediately if symptoms of a heart attack or stroke are present, such as:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
- Weakness in one part or one side of the body
- Slurred speech
