At SC RegenCare in Charleston, we offer Testosterone Replacement Therapy to help enhance the quality of life of our male patients who are experiencing the symptoms of low T, or testosterone deficiency. Like other hormones, testosterone is produced by the body in smaller amounts as you age. This lower T production often leads to a hormonal imbalance that can not only affect your quality of life but that can also contribute to a number of debilitating conditions.
Testosterone and Hormone Deficiency
Hormone imbalance like low T for Charleston patients can open the body up to a number of risks, conditions and diseases. Because male libido is reduced by a lack of testosterone, men with a deficiency are more susceptible to erectile dysfunction and lowered rates of arousal. Physical capabilities can also be compromised by lower testosterone with a reduction in agility, weakened muscles, rising cholesterol levels, and weight gain. Men with depleted testosterone are also prone to psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, an impaired ability to concentrate, loss of initiative and lack of energy which leads to anxiety and poor-quality sleep. If left unmanaged by testosterone replacement therapy from our Charleston clinic, hormonal imbalances like low T can even lead to conditions such as atherosclerosis, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and stroke.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a treatment designed to raise the level of hormones lost due to the natural process of aging. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural, often plant-based, sources. As opposed to synthetic and lab-produced hormones, the hormones we use for BHRT are biologically identical to the hormones produced by the human body. This makes them safer and more effective, minimizing health risks and amplifying the body’s recovery efforts.
One effective BHRT treatment regimen combines Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), Testosterone Cypionate and Anastrozole. While HCG stimulates natural testosterone production and helps restore testicular function, testosterone cypionate increases the level of testosterone in the body at a specific rate depending on the recommended dosage. Anastrozole is only required for patients who need to control excess estrogen levels.
Benefits of BHRT:

Is BHRT Right for You?
At SC RegenCare in Charleston, we offer testosterone replacement therapy to help enhance the quality of life of our male patients who are experiencing low T. We believe that maintaining consistent levels of testosterone through ongoing treatment is the most effective method for incorporating BHRT into your existing regimen. This allows our patients in Charleston to continue our testosterone replacement therapy program while staying on track with their own personal goals.
Continued monitoring is one of the key factors that lead to success for our patients, so physical exams must be completed at least twice a year to ensure that patients remain on track in meeting their goals. Patients are also required to return for testing 60 days after the initial test so our doctors can adjust dosages as needed to ensure patients are achieving the most favorable hormone balance for their body. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to discuss your case and have your testosterone levels tested.
