We also do bio-identical hormone therapy for men. Symptoms of hormone imbalances for men include fatigue, lack of drive, depression, lack of libido and erectile dysfunction. We check levels of pertinent hormones including free testosterone, total testosterone, estradiol, progesterone and DHEA-Sulfate.
Costs of tests:
Testosterone cream or gel is used to treat levels that are below optimal. If increased testosterone to estrogen conversion is the cause of abnormal levels, then other supplements, hormones or medications are used to treat that condition.
Most insurance companies will not pay for hormone testing in generally healthy men. Check with your insurance company regarding coverage for visits and testing at our office.
