Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many people believe that hormone health is a topic that only comes up when you’re young. The truth, however, is that your hormones have a major effect on your overall health for your entire life, and your hormone health is especially important to monitor as you age.
Men and women both experience hormone shifts later in life, and if you’re feeling fatigued, having difficulty losing weight, lacking drive in the bedroom, or simply not feeling like yourself, your hormones may be at the bottom of your struggles – but HRT treatment can help. Dr. Victor Prisk and his team at Prisk Orthopaedics and Wellness are proud to provide the hormone replacement therapy men need to achieve balance and feel their best.

Advanced HRT Treatments for Men
Hormone imbalances can affect both men and women, especially as they age – but depending on your gender, different difficulties can affect those who struggle with hormone regulation. Low testosterone (also known as “low T”) is very common in men ages 50 and older, but can also occur in younger individuals due to the environment or stress. Low T can be responsible for a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Lowered sex drive
- Chronic fatigue
- Weight gain
- Difficulty concentrating
- Loss of muscle mass and strength
- Increased irritability
Hormone replacement therapy is available to regulate the body’s levels of testosterone in men – in order to alleviate sexual symptoms and increase your overall quality of life.
