SAN DIEGO, CA, September 27, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Recent news stories questioning the effectiveness of low testosterone level treatments are likely focusing too much on negative outcomes and medical treatments from inexperienced providers, cautions Dr. John T. Alexander II, a specialist in treatment of low T in San Diego at ENERGENEX (http://www.energenex.com
). Articles in publications such as Slate and TIME Magazine have alleged that testing for and treating low testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) levels may be overrated and unnecessary.
"Hormones are a vital component of human health," says Dr. Alexander, founder of ENERGENEX. "Hormones play a role in nearly all human biological functions, and lower levels of particular hormones can lead to an array of problems, depending on the hormones. For patients at my San Diego office, Low T can be - and more importantly has been - treated successfully with targeted therapies."
In recent years, medical advances have led to breakthroughs in treatment for two hormones in particular: human growth hormone (HGH) and testosterone. Both hormones are especially important in male development. HGH helps to regulate bone density, muscle tone and body fat, while testosterone is involved in sexual function, sperm production and maintenance of muscle mass and bone strength and density.
"Deficiencies in these two hormones have been linked to many male health issues, especially those commonly shrugged off as signs of old age," adds Dr. Alexander. "The most common symptoms in patients with low hormone levels include feeling tired and run down all the time. Really when your hormones are lower it slows your metabolism and it makes it more difficult to burn fat or hold onto muscle."
Only recently, easy-to-apply delivery systems such as creams and micro-injections have made it much easier to supplement hormone levels in the body. Treatments often lead to a reported increase in quality of life, with patients saying they feel 10 or more years younger.
"I would certainly like to see more scientific studies of hormone replacement therapy," notes Dr. Alexander. "I believe that what we will see is that these treatments are giving patients new drive and motivation in life. I think it's too soon to close the book on treatments for Low T, low HGH, and other hormone deficiencies. In my experience, we are just at the beginning of a new wave of advancements to improve quality of life."
Helping patients increase their quality of life, ENERGENEX (http://www.energenex.com
) specializes in breakthrough treatments of hormone irregularities. In particular, the clinic treats human growth hormone (HGH) and Low T at its San Diego office. Established in 1998 by Dr. John T. Alexander II, it was one of California's first anti-aging clinics. In 1999, Dr. Alexander became a Diplomate of the newly formed Board of Anti-Aging an Regenerative Medicine.---
