Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What's the Deal with Low T?
Guys don’t like to talk about low testosterone, but it’s time to. The body slowing down its hormonal production is a natural part of aging. Signs of low testosterone include: lack of energy, declining libido, weak erection, poor sleep, decreased muscle + strength, decreased performance + concentration, and sometimes depression.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t be your full you. At Seriously Health, we use advanced science and FDA-approved procedures to create sustainable solutions to low testosterone. Our clinician-managed program works around your schedule and your time.
Due to COVID-19 we are offering telehealth as an option for follow-up appointments. Please note we are still open for in-office visits. Patients may schedule an appointment with our providers over the phone. This is not an option if your last appoitment was more than a year ago, as we will need a new EKG and labs. This is tentatively offered as we continue to monitor changes with pandemic regulations. The cost of the visit is the same as an in-office follow-up appointment. If you would like to schedule a telehealth appointment, please call our office or schedule online and select "telehealth".

Testosterone replacement therapy is a relatively painless procedure. Seriously Health uses injectable Testosterone Cypionate. This therapy is designed to supplement what your body is not producing in sufficient quantities.
Injections are given in the gluteal muscle, alternating sides with each injection. Injections are given every 7 days to maintain therapeutic levels throughout the week.
Men often report that they notice a difference in the way they feel within the first three weeks of beginning therapy.
Low T but don't want Testosterone? We have options.
A testosterone shot peaks at 3 days and starts to subside by the seventh day. By having one small shot a week, you are always at the level of testosterone you need to stay energized.
Some shots give you too much T, and then let it subside over the course of a month. We make sure that you have the right amounts at all times.
A man’s body converts used testosterone into estrogen. We provide another medicine along with your shot to manage that level and stay in balance.
For younger patients with low T but do not wish to be on testosterone and wish to preserve fertility, we can give you Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate), another type of non-testosterone medication.
We can also supplement low T with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Frequently asked questions
What are "normal" testosterone levels?
In healthy men, testosterone levels between 350 ng/dL and 1000 ng/dL are referred to as “normal.” Normal physiology allows the brain and the testes to work together to keep testosterone in this range. The brain produces “signal” hormones that are responsible for stimulating testosterone production. These signals are periodically released, which in turn stimulates testosterone production. When levels of testosterone are in an acceptable range, the production of the signal hormones are slowed, which in turn allows the testosterone levels to decrease.
How does Seriously Health determine if I have low testosterone?
Professionals at Seriously Health will first confirm your symptoms, and then perform a simple blood test. If your total or free testosterone is below the normal range, you may be diagnosed as hypogonadal.
What is low testosterone treatment?
Low testosterone treatment is the practice of diagnosing hypogonadism (low testosterone) through a combination of symptoms and testosterone blood values below the lower limit of normal and treating with testosterone injections, gels, patches, surgically implanted pellets, or oral applications. Seriously Health uses injection therapy to treat low testosterone in hypogonadal men.
