    Testosterone replacement therapy and anti-aging treatments are in extreme demand due to current trends in fitness, or lack thereof, that permeates our society. As a whole, our routine diet and level of activity is very poor, and the effects are obvious. We are seeing dramatic increases in obesity and comorbidities that go along with it. Many patients are turning to the new weight loss wonder drugs as a quick fix, but the underlying issues of a healthy body and healthy lifestyle are of principle importance. Hormone levels and body composition change as we age, but we have means to address these issues and improve our quality of life and vitality.

    Oral testosterone: What you need to know

    Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is an important piece in the management of aging and overall health for men from their early adulthood to their golden years. The understanding of testosterone and testicular function has been pursued for thousand of years. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Chinese used castration to create soldiers, harem guards, and infertile sexual partners. (1) This illustrates a long-standing interest in what we know today about testosterone, the endocrine system, and reproductive systems. This led to the consumption of animal testes and testicular extracts to promote fertility and strength. (2,3)

    By the 1930s, our technology and knowledge allowed for extraction and synthesis of testosterone compounds for patient use. (4,5,6) The use of testosterone injections and implanted testosterone pellets became therapeutic options for treating patients with

    Testosterone pellets for male TRT

    The concept of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) dates back to the early 1900s. Observations of behavioral changes in castrated roosters formed the foundation of what we know to be hypogonadism or “low T.” The concept of “treat like with like” spurred research and by the mid 1930s, testosterone synthesis began. (1)

    During the 1930s, we saw the initiation of TRT with testosterone propionate injections as well as subcutaneous testosterone pellets.(2) By the mid 1940s, researchers had identified multiple indicators of low testosterone including depression, failing memory, increased fatigability, and reduced libido. We now apply that early research, with improved understanding of physiology and the aging process, to successfully treat millions of men who experience the unwanted effects of low testosterone.

    For years, men were prescribed testosterone injections,

    Different Methods of Testing Hormone Levels at Home

    Know Your Hormone Levels and Put Your Health First

    Hormone imbalances can affect both men and women. Symptoms can be minimal, while in many cases they are severe, causing negative effects to one’s quality of life. It is important to get your hormone levels checked and address any deficiencies with a plan of action.

    How Do I Test Hormone Levels?

    There are three easy ways to check specific hormone levels: At-home Saliva Testing, Blood Spot Testing, and Urine Testing.

    Saliva Testing

    Saliva testing is a collection method where patients collect their saliva at home, utilizing swabs and plastic tubes in order to measure hormones like cortisol, estrogens, progesterone, and androgens.

    This non-invasive saliva collection is ideal for patients because it allows them to collect their sample in the privacy of their home or office. Saliva hormone testing has become a useful resource for health care providers and patients around the
