Testosterone Therapy and The Benefits of TRT Injections for Men in South Florida

Low Treatment at NovaGenix is Palm Beach County's best HRT clinic. Learn about the benefits of Testosterone Therapy and hor you can get started with TRT in Jupiter, Florida.

Test, Diagnose and Treat low T at NovaGenix, TRT experts in Jupiter.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone found in males that helps men in many more ways than just providing them with a healthy “drive.” A man’s hormone levels, especially free and total testosterone, affect many other factors in a man’s health which include regulation of body fat production of lean muscle mass, proper bone density, healthy red blood cell levels and regulation of mood and sleep. 

Normal testosterone levels have typically ranged from about 250 ng/dL to 1100 ng/dL with many factors that can contribute to the wide variation in the values. Things such as age, genetics, lifestyle choices, diet, stress, and other factors may contribute to higher or lower values within men.  When patients come into our Jupiter office, located at 609 N. Hepburn Ave. Suite 106 Jupiter, FL 33458, we can help them get the necessary blood tests required to diagnose for low T. For some of the patients who qualify, we may be able to put them on testosterone replacement therapy and the vast majority of patients prefer testosterone cypionate injections.
There are many symptoms for men suffering from low T.  As males, we begin to lose our testosterone often starting in our 20s and it’s typically not until our mid-30s to early 40s, that we notice the changes due to the many symptoms of low testosterone. These often include changes in your sex drive, ED, decreased sperm count, anxiety and depression as well as mood fluctuations, Weight gain typically from increased body fat with decreased muscle tone, Hot flashes, irritability and poor sleep quality to name a few. 

To diagnose low testosterone, we will have an in-person consultation to discuss your symptoms as well as past and present medical history. We will do a thorough lab panel which includes testing your blood for free and total testosterone levels, estradiol, a complete metabolic panel with complete blood count and a PSA. 

Some of the potential benefits of TRT but NovaGenix in Palm Beach County include some of the following:

Increased drive. TRT can substantially improve your performance in the bedroom.
Improved symptoms of ED. Many men on TRT described remarkable improvements down below. 
Increased energy. Often men come to us with symptoms of fatigue and TRT helps give them the energy they need to know just navigate through the day but to take charge and own it. 
Better mood. Men feel better on TRT so naturally when they feel better their moods improve.  Together with increased confidence, TOT helps men feel like their old selves again. 
Decreased body fat. Testosterone will help generate more lean body mass and get rid of that abdominal fat around the midsection. Testosterone can help regulate fat distribution. 

Like any other medication, not everyone should Beyond TRT. If someone has pre-existing liver, heart issues or prostate enlargement, testosterone replacement may be contraindicated. By seeking the advice of a qualified medical professional such as the physicians at NovaGenix, you can be assured that your health is in good hands and if testosterone replacement therapy would benefit you, we would help to test, diagnose and treat you for low T. 
Countless men are starting testosterone replacement therapy and their only regret is not having started sooner.

What Blood Tests Do I Need To Start Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

What blood work is required for beginning testosterone therapy for men who think they have low T?

NovaGenix in Jupiter, Florida can help get your labwork done to begin TRT in Palm Beach County.

For men wishing to start testosterone replacement therapy, it’s important to make sure that you get the right blood tests to determine if TRT is something that would be beneficial to them. It’s important for men to properly monitor their hormone levels by performing the right labs and blood work to ensure that their hormone levels are balanced and optimized so that they can begin to feel their best and get the most health benefits from treatment. Lab results a physical exam and an ADAM Test (Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males) (Click HERE to take the ADAM test online)

At a minimum, to start testosterone replacement therapy, the following panels listed should be performed, but are by no means the only tests that could or will be performed by your provider. More thorough panels are great in the sense that more information is always a good thing regarding your health, however the more comprehensive the blood tests are, the more expensive they can be, so ask ahead of time how much labs will cost to start TRT through the clinic as some business charge more for labs than others.

At a minimum to start Low T therapy, we would start with Total Testosterone. Most men who start TRT want to see their levels rise above 500 ng/dl. This is the area where patients really see the improvements while on Low t therapy. Typical total testosterone ranges in men vary from around 250 to 1100 and certainly age and lifestyle choices will place groups within various sub-sections on this scale. For example, an active 22-year-old male will have a higher average testosterone value than a sedentary 60-year-old male averaged out across the population. All research and literature point to the benefits of TRT on an individual’s health with having their hormones levels with the upper quartile of the standard ranges.

Free testosterone is also extremely important as it measures the amount of bioavailable testosterone in the body. Many patients come in with their serum or total testosterone levels seemingly normal, however, their free testosterone tells a different story. Many patients may have testosterone being tied up or bound by Albium or sex hormone binding globulin, (SHBG). Despite the testes producing a significant quantity of testosterone, there is very little left to be used for the individual which will lead them to feel the symptoms of male hypogonadism, so we need both values of Free and Total Testosterone to diagnose and treat men.

Estradiol is another important test for men thinking about starting HRT. We often find that healthcare practitioners who are not as knowledgeable in HRT as they should/could be, will neglect to run this test. The reality is a male’s estrogen levels are extremely important in how they feel. You want your estrogen levels to be neither too high, nor too low. Knowing your estradiol levels will allow a practitioner to prescribe the appropriate estrogen blocker and help determine the amount of aromatization of testosterone into estrogen. Determining your baseline and seeing how much it changes while on TRT is important in making sure that the patient feels better while on treatment. When estrogen levels are too low, a person may become fatigued and if estrogen levels are too high, they may develop unwanted symptoms like gynecomastia and/or have mood swings, low libido, muscle loss, ED and more. Knowing your levels will help the physician in adjusting medications properly and allowance for successful treatment.

PSA or prostate specific antigen is an important test for starting TRT. Is the first step in determining whether or not there’s potential enlargement/cancer of the prostate. The American Urological Association has come out with the definitive report that states testosterone therapy does not cause prostate cancer, however, in some patients there could be some enlargement which is not advisable for someone with prostate cancer. By assessing the PSA, a skilled physician can evaluate the lab results and determine the risk factor. If the PSA is over 4.0, it’s recommended to follow up with the urologist and possibly get an ultrasound to evaluate the possible risk of prostate cancer or tumors.

Why Testosterone Therapy May Be The Answer You Were Looking For. Jupiter, Florida's TRT Experts Explain.

Why TRT can change the way you look and feel.

Testosterone Therapy in Jupiter, Florida at NovaGenix is Palm Beach County's leading TRT clinic. 

Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment that most men don’t think about in their 20s or 30s, or if they do think about hormone therapy, they think that it’s something they’ll deal with in the future when they’re much older. The reality is, low testosterone levels choose us for a variety of reasons, whether it’s genetics, lifestyle choices, stress or medications. TRT is the lifeline that will provide us with a chance to regain vitality and see amazing benefits for our health and happiness which will increase our overall quality of life. What typically shocks and surprises most men is their actual hormone levels when they finally do get tested for Low T. We’ll see men come in who seem to look completely normal.  Have even worked with professional athletes that are in the prime of their athletic careers but when they get their blood work back it shows that their testosterone levels are in the lower quartile of normal ranges. The signs and symptoms of andropause may be there, but most people tend to attribute their fatigue, weight gain and mood swings to work, family and life beating them down. As it turns out, many men have been experiencing the symptoms of low T for years but didn’t realize the exact cause. 

For those men that decide to start TRT, usually, it comes after a lot of online research and deliberation. Unfortunately, we have found that many physicians are shockingly unknowledgeable when it comes to proper hormonal balancing which is why we suggest coming in to speak with our physician who is experienced and trained in hormone replacement therapy.
There have been many articles and pieces of misinformation which have cast some negative light on testosterone replacement therapy. Despite current scientific and medical studies proving the safety and efficacy of TRT, many primary care physicians still know little about TRT. Many patients come to us with concerns about things that they’ve heard or read that are simply not true. Some men tell us that they don’t want to get big and bulky, while others are afraid that they’re going to get angry and potentially violent. This couldn’t be further from the truth. TRT on a therapeutic protocol under the proper supervision of a licensed and experienced physician will cause a man to trim down and tone up, but not become overly muscular. Once they start feeling better, TRT helps to regulate their moods and improve their overall wellness so that they are indeed happier and less cranky. More than one occasion we’ve had women thank us for “bringing their husband back.” 

TRT helps men look and feel better, and the benefits are quite evident. Everyone responds a little differently to TRT with regards to what benefits they experience first. However, many of the improvements that they’ll see and experience within the first month of starting therapy is just the beginning. Most men will continue to improve throughout the next several months, but we always tell patients that everyone is unique and will experience changes at their own pace. Some men see a difference in a week, others take a month. Only time will tell, however after 2 months, one will certainly see the difference.
Some of the benefits that many that our patients will begin to notice, is an improvement in their performance at the gym. Their workouts improve, and their recovery time is decreased allowing them to experience a dramatic improvement in their physique and energy levels. This also results in a physiological change as testosterone replacement will help to increase muscle mass. We’re not talking about an individual gaining 30 pounds of muscle while on TRT, but they will see an improvement in size, strength, and definition. Many men will lose 5 to 10 pounds of fat and gain 7 to 10 pounds of muscle. This will certainly change and improve the way they look and boost self-confidence.

Another benefit to TRT is there increase in their romantic drive. Many patients have come in to tell us that they would rather fall asleep at 10 o’clock at night than be affectionate with their significant other. TRT will help get that drive back that they used to have when they were younger. Testosterone will improve not just desire but performance as well.
When men start feeling more energetic, with greater self-confidence, they begin to experience an improvement in their overall mood. When a person’s hormone levels are out of balance, it definitely affects their thoughts and how they feel. Often, patients tell us about how they have periods of time when they feel down in the dumps and are not very productive at work. They kind of just sit on the couch when they get home and do nothing. TRT helps patients get out of that funk and feel better and increases their ability to have an overall positive outlook on life.

When under the supervised care of an experience TRT doctor, the benefits of therapy can dramatically improve and enhance your life. TRT has worked incredibly well for many patients because they listen to the NovaGenix protocol and staff and take a proactive approach to their health. When a patient starts TRT, it’s the first step in taking control of their health. Testosterone replacement therapy may not be for everyone, so we highly encourage you to give us a call and schedule an appointment to sit down to see if you may benefit from TRT, has hundreds of patients have experienced.

What Is Stem Cell Therapy? NovaGenix Regenerative Medicine Experts From Jupiter, Florida Explain.

What Are Stem Cells And How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

NovaGenix from Jupiter, Florida discusses regenerative medicine in South Florida.

NovaGenix: 609 N. Hepburn Ave. Jupiter, Florida. 33458

NovaGenix Medical Director Dr. Sigman Providing Stem Cell Injections

     Often patients come into our clinic and ask us “What is Stem Cell Therapy?” We explain to our patients that Stem cells are rather unique cells with beneficial properties in helping patients recover from a variety of medical conditions. They are capable of transforming into many different types of cells and can quickly and easily replicate within the human body into whatever types of cells that need to be repaired or replaced. The use of stem cells has always shown great promise in the treatment of several medical conditions and has allowed doctors to help countless patients improve the quality of their lives through the use of these treatments.

     The regenerative properties of Stem cells play a crucial role in both the current and future treatments of disease and injuries. When Mesenchymal stem cells undergo division, the new cells can either remain the same or transform (differentiate) themselves into new cells. Stem cells are unspecialized and unique in their ability to divide and renew themselves for very long periods of time, so the process of healing continues for many weeks after the treatment.

     Fortunately, stem cells are capable of replicating themselves several times over, a process that is known as proliferation.  This process, as well as the stem cells ability to differentiate into multiple types of cells, is the basis for our treatment in our Jupiter and Fort Lauderdale clinics. Mesenchymal stems cells are currently being harvested from umbilical cord tissue and used in the treatment of many diseases and chronic degenerative conditions like arthritis and neuropathy, to name a few. 
     Our allogenic Cord blood stem cell clinic in Palm Beach County Florida uses only the highest quality stem cells that can be infused into a patient’s bloodstream or injected locally into an area of injury or chronic pain where they may help to initiate the body’s natural healing processes our and cellular regeneration for many types of tissues or cells in the patient’s body. 

Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma Preparations at NovaGenix in Jupiter, Florida

     At NovaGenix our comprehensive stem cell treatment protocols employ well-targeted combinations of allogeneic human umbilical cord stem cells and autologous platelet rich plasma therapy to help treat diseases and conditions like:

·       Autoimmune disorders
·       Heart Failure
·       Spinal injuries
·       Neuropathy
·       Osteoarthritis
·       Rheumatoid Arthritis
·       And more….

We also treat chronic pain and acute orthopedic conditions and injuries to the:

·       Neck
·       Back
·       Shoulders
·       Elbows
·       Wrist
·       Hips
·       Lower Back
·       Knees
·       Ankles

     Stem Cell Therapy at NovaGenix can involve the injection of stem cells into a damaged area of the body, such as a patient’s knees or lower back where they can divide and differentiate into new, healthier cells and repair the damaged tissue causing the pain and discomfort allowing patients to live normal lives again and regain their ability to continue the activities they enjoy like walking, swimming, playing golf and biking for example.

Stem Cell Therapy in Palm Beach County at NovaGenix can Help Patients Recover Faster 

     Stem cells are “de-differentiated pluripotent” cells, which means that they can continue to self-replicate and divide to create even more stem cells; which will hopefully develop and grow into the specialized tissues we are trying to repair, like cartilage, nerve or muscle tissue. We often use stem cell therapy together with Platelet Rich Plasma, (or PRP) treatments. PRP is a procedure where we take a patient’s own blood and separates the platelets from the red blood cells. 
     The platelets contain growth factors and cytokines, which are the cells responsible for healing, and concentrates it to levels up to 14 times greater than the patents normal blood sample. By injecting the concentrated PRP into an area of injury, we can accelerate the process of healing by providing the body with much higher levels of the cells that it needs to repair and regenerate new tissue and cells. This is a noninvasive alternative to surgery which has helped counted patients recover from their injuries and chronic pain.

NovaGenix State of The Art Stem Cell Technologies in South Florida

     It’s an exciting time in medicine to be able to help rebuild damaged cells and tissues in the body from within.  Stem cell therapy can help a patient transform a damaged or diseased area into a factory of self-healing, so to speak. There have been many studies and research that supports the benefits of stem cell therapy. Studies conducted on patients with knee osteoarthritis, for example, showed that at the end of a five-year follow-up period, patients who had received stem cells showed significant improvement in the alleviation of pain, mobility, and repair to cartilage, bone and muscle, as compared to the control population that received no stem cell treatment. 
     Stem cell injections are beneficial because they promote the regrowth of cartilage and stop chronic inflammation which causes pain and reduces mobility. There is more work to be done but the potential for healing is no doubt exciting and a reason why stem cell treatments are becoming increasingly popular as a non-surgical alternative.

If your daily routines are being limited because of continual pain, then perhaps stem cell therapy may be the best option to make an actual change and get you back to feeling like your old self again.

Many of our patients come to us with debilitating medical conditions who have tried traditional methods for pain relief and recovery with limited to no results. Stem cell therapy is an alternative which may provide your body the help it needs to repair damaged cells and heal from injury. If you are interested in learning more about stem cell injections, then give NovaGenix a call at 561-277-8260. We have locations in Jupiter, Florida in the heart of Palm Beach County as well as in Broward County in Fort Lauderdale.

Stem cells are interesting and the subject of much research due to their ability to both self-renew and differentiate. They can divide and replicate themselves both inside the body as well as in a laboratory setting. Very small amount of stem cells may be able to be harvested from human tissue and then grown in a Petri dish. Stem cells also have the ability to develop into multiple types of cells internally. It’s possible that a stem cell may be able to turn into nervous tissue, blood cells, bone, cartilage, muscle and more. Stem Cells, Growth Factors, and Cytokines are an essential part of the body’s ability to heal and repair damaged cells and tissue. They are critical for healing after injuries. For this reason, we use mesenchymal stem cells derived from cord blood. The MSC cells can also differentiate and develop into fat, muscle, skin, nervous tissue, bone or cartilage and more. It’s these cells which have the potential to replace and even repair damaged cartilage and tendons as well as other tissues and cells that may have been damaged from conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis and other degenerative medical conditions. 

There are many applications for the use of stem cells which is why they’re being studied for a number of reasons. Applications for brain and spinal cord injury as well as heart disease, COPD, autoimmune disorders and neurodegeneration are a few examples of conditions being researched and have shown tremendous promise in treating these diseases and conditions as well as others. 
One of the biggest areas that we see interest and successes in orthopedics. Research in literature for musculoskeletal care focuses on using mesenchymal stem cells. Patients with chronic joint pain and acute injuries can receive stem cell therapy which will help the body accelerate the process of repair in many cases. For ligament and tendon repair and joint repair, stem cell therapy is a popular nonsurgical alternative for many patients. More research and clinical trials for stem cell therapy are needed but the current regulation and acceptance of stem cell therapy in a limited capacity is giving great optimism for medical professionals and patients alike. To schedule a free consultation, give NovaGenix a call and learn more about potential therapy in one of our South Florida locations.
