Testosterone Deficiency Screen And Replacement Therapy
It is a trite saying that 50% of men over the age 50 will have some intimation of a low testosterone. Surprisingly, it is pretty much true as the key male hormone starts its preordained slide around age 30.
Testosterone is firmly associated with sex. Of course it is. But, there are vital testosterone receptors in every tissue from brain to bone marrow. Apart from the common red flag symptoms of loss of libido and erectile dysfunction, more insidious markers can be evident – chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety, unexplained weight gain and loss of muscle mass, increased sweating, poor cognitive function, and more. The effect on careers and relationships can be devastating.
Having been diagnosed, Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome is easily and effectively treated.
Testosterone Deficiency Screen
At the WellMan Clinic we tailor our services to suit you. Our testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) screening procedure consists of two consultation sessions, lasting a total of one and a half hours or more if necessary. One of our experienced male doctors will take you through:
- A full clinical history of the condition
- A physical examination
- Investigations including haematology, biochemistry and hormone profiles
- Prostate screening
- Discussion of appropriate treatment options
A short preliminary consultation is also available if desired.
Treatment can begin within a few hours of your initial consultation. You only need to visit us a few times a year to keep up with your treatment plan.
