What is testosterone therapy?

Testosterone therapy refers to hormone replacement therapy designed to supplement the hormones your body can no longer produce or can’t produce enough of. A hormonal imbalance can lead to numerous complications and symptoms, and hormone therapy is a great way to lower these risks.

There are different types of hormone therapy available at Edgewater Medical Clinic. Hormones can be administered in different ways, such as injections and topical creams.

Injections are especially convenient. With injections, men can usually receive three to six months of supplies in just one office visit. Dr. Jacobs can show you how to safely administer the injections yourself, making it easier and more accessible for you to get your desired results with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). 

TRT can boost your mental health, mood, energy, muscle mass, and much more. Edgewater Medical Clinic also provides other quality personalized treatments to improve health and promote hormonal balance, such as stress management and nutritional counseling.

The Edgewater Medical Clinic professionals work with you to decide the most practical approach to treat your low testosterone issues. Dr. Bobby Jacobs creates a plan that works with your schedule, lifestyle, and medical needs. Edgewater Medical Clinic offers affordable options for testosterone replacement and tries to reduce the number of office visits needed.
