Believe it or not, the concept of hormone therapy dates back to around 1939. For nearly a century, researchers and scientists have been actively looking for new information and answers on how low testosterone and similar hormonal imbalances can be treated with hormone replacement therapy.
While male testosterone therapy has become increasingly popular over the last few decades, there is still a significant amount of misinformation available. Fortunately, Dr. Mikhail Berman, a licensed medical doctor with over 30 years of experience, has significant knowledge of both the endocrine system and hormone replacement therapies. This makes him uniquely qualified to both provide guidance as well as testosterone treatment to those in need.
Symptoms of low t can be difficult to identify, especially since there are so many issues that this hormonal imbalance can cause. Common signs of low testosterone include gynecomastia, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, mood swings, depression, muscle weakness, and osteoporosis, and even this list is not exhaustive. While these symptoms may not always indicate a low testosterone level, it’s important to receive the proper diagnosis from a qualified physician like Dr. Berman. While hormone therapy is not always the best solution to the problem, it’s only with the help of a testosterone specialist that one can properly determine the ideal course of action.
How Does Male Testosterone Therapy Help?
Testosterone works in the male body as an androgen, or sex hormone, meaning that it is crucial to a number of different functions, including maintaining libido and encouraging the growth of facial and body hair. With the important functions it serves, it’s no wonder that a dip in the hormone can result in a number of unwanted, and often physically and emotionally devastating side effects.
The creation of a bio-identical hormone in the lab was fortuitous for many men, especially once it was determined to be highly effective at reducing side effects associated with low t. One of the challenges, however, is that it can often be difficult to determine when testosterone replacement therapy is needed. Since symptoms don’t always present themselves until the problem has progressed, it’s important to have frequent checkups where hormone levels are tested. In this way, it can be possible to address the problem before a decline in health occurs.

The endocrine system is a complex one, and it takes significant experience to be able to identify problems that exist. Hormones are instrumental in a number of functions, from metabolism to bone retention, and testosterone is no exception. When issues arise, the results can be quite damaging.
When Dr. Berman sees patients who are dealing with low testosterone, he focuses on providing male hormone replacement that works, namely testosterone injections. While topical creams and supplements exist, Dr. Berman has found that the exacting doses and targeted application of injections yields far more impressive results. Low t therapy, when performed in this way, can restore balance to the body without unwanted side effects.
In many cases, Dr. Berman’s patients experience renewed interest in sex and in physical activity following treatment. Not only this, but the gradual restoration of hormone levels has also helped men to lose weight, increase muscle strength, and eliminate fatigue. All in all, low testosterone treatment has been shown to be quite effective.
