Hormone & Testosterone Therapy
If you are experiencing increased fatigue, reduced libido, weight gain, feeling depressed or just not like yourself, it can be a sign that your hormone levels are dropping. A decline in hormone levels can start as early as your 30s, which can impact your quality of life and sense of well-being.
Our doctors in Charleston, SC offer hormone and testosterone (T) therapy treatments that are designed to help boost your hormone levels so that you can get back to feeling more like yourself again.
Testosterone therapy is a simple injection given every one to three weeks. Our injections allow the testosterone to go directly where it is needed so that you can begin to see results shortly after therapy.
Testosterone plays a key role in many aspects of healthy body function, including:
- Healthy muscle mass and bones
- Facial and pubic hair development
- Mood and quality of life
- Verbal memory
- Thinking ability
Common symptoms of low T levels include:
- Weight gain
- Lowered muscle mass
- Decreased libido
- Loss of hair
- Mood swings
- Anxiety attacks
It is important to speak to a doctor if you are noticing changes to your health. Low testosterone is associated with more than emotional and sex-related issues. It can also lead to more serious health issues, including:
- Unhealthy cholesterol and lipid levels
- Decreased hemoglobin and possibly anemia
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease
- Erectile dysfunction
The hormone therapy available for our male patients in Charleston, SC can address a number of common issues related to low testosterone, including:

As women age, changes in hormone levels lead to perimenopause and menopause. Other changes such as childbirth and conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can also lead to hormonal changes.
