BHRT for Men: The Basics

Scott Brandt, M.D. BHRT, Hormone Therapy for Men

Hormones help regulate the body’s functions. Excreted directly into the bloodstream by endrocrine glands (like the thyroid, pancreas, testes and ovaries), these chemicals travel to our tissues and organs, signaling various bodily processes that control the way our bodies grow and develop. For men, a hormonal imbalance can be particularly alarming; even a slight change in the level of just one hormone can have a profound impact on everything from their appetite, metabolism and fertility to sleep patterns, heart rate and even their mood! That’s why it’s important that men pay attention to how they’re feeling and seek medical advice if they believe something is wrong with their hormone levels. With professional medical care, men can regulate their hormones with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and get back to feeling, acting and looking their best. Here’s what you should know about BHRT for men:

What is BHRT for Men?

BHRT for men is a treatment that seeks to maintain optimal levels of hormones in men using natural hormones (not synthetic) so that their symptoms diminish and their risks of acquiring age-related disease (such as cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, senility and more) are reduced. At ThriveMD, we believe natural hormones are better than man-made ones because they are identical in structure to your bodies own hormones and don’t contain foreign substances that could potentially produce toxic by-products and cause various unpleasant side effects and/or raise patients’ risk for heart disease and cancer. BHRT for men is natural and safe and often involves the use of hormones such as:

  • Testosterone
  • HCG
  • DHEA
  • HGH
  • Thyroid
  • Melatonin
  • Pregnenolone
  • Peptides

How Does it Work at ThriveMD?

Balancing hormones is a delicate process, requiring specialized training in order to understand how to diagnose, treat, monitor and adjust hormone levels. Our medical director, Dr. Scott Brandt, and assisting medical staff here at ThriveMD have years of experience countering hormonal imbalances. We know how to recognize anomalies in hormone functions and can accurately prescribe a personalized BHRT treatment plan to counter many of the following symptoms:

  • Lethargy
  • Weight Gain
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Hot Flashes
  • Low Libido
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Gynecomastia
  • Hair Loss
  • Muscle Loss
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cognitive Issues
  • Depression
  • and More!

First, we review the patient’s history and conduct extensive blood testing to determine which hormones are not optimal. We then prescribe a customized hormone replacement regimen that we will manage throughout the treatment’s duration. Indeed, we carefully monitor each of our patient’s treatments, providing every patient with access to unlimited consultations to ensure that his hormones remain stable with his body releasing neither too little nor too much of any one. We work to ensure that our patient’s symptoms are alleviated, optimal health is restored and the risk of age-related disease is reduced.
