Symptoms & Treatment

Hormones don’t just affect women. As men age, they’ll see symptoms of low testosterone levels. DHEA and growth hormones also gradually decrease, triggering side effects that can vary in severity among men.

Common male menopause (andropause) symptoms include:

  • hair loss
  • muscle loss
  • weight gain
  • fatigue
  • sleep problems
  • “man boobs” (gynecomastia)
  • hot flashes
  • night sweats
  • decreased sex drive
  • erectile dysfunction
  • urinary problems
  • irritability
  • depression, and
  • memory loss.

Equally as bad, as they get older, men can produce more estrogen, which causes mood changes and “man boobs.” Estrogen is also a growth factor for prostate cancer.

Harvard professor Abraham Morgentaler has debunked the myth that high testosterone levels feed prostate cancer.

In actuality, it’s males with low testosterone levels and elevated estrogens (usually elderly men) who are more likely to get prostate cancer.

Testosterone replacement therapy can enable a man to thwart off many common diseases.

How To Increase Testosterone – the Right Way

At the DaSilva Institute we protect our male patients’ health by not only balancing testosterone levels, but also making sure men’s estrogen levels are not overly produced.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You may have heard the catch-phrase “Is It Low T?” Watch out for popular websites actually run by a pharmaceutical company selling one type of testosterone booster in a hormone pellet form. Not only is it very low-dose and not customized to your physiology, but it requires an expensive surgical procedure to be inserted in patients. These testosterone supplements are left in the patient for six months in the hopes that over that period of time a steady daily release of hormone would be released by the pellet. That is contrary to our experience.

We have found that every man who had these testosterone pellets implanted was overdosed. They would have to wait six months for the hormone to be completely used up by the body from the pellet. The patient has to live with the problem for half a year!

With prescription testosterone injections or creams, the correct dose is released daily at optimal physiologic doses. The hormone is used up in one day, which avoids testosterone therapy side effects.

As responsible medical practitioners, we will first have your blood tested to be positive that testosterone is clinically necessary. Some unethical doctors not only treat men who actually have normal testosterone levels, but they require expensive weekly visits so they can charge four times the price!

We put you in the driver’s seat.

We’ll give you a prescription for testosterone injections you can administer yourself. Not only will you save money and time, but you’ll have peace of mind knowing you are getting the proper dose of hormones for your body.

The DaSilva Institute provides not just HRT (hormone replacement therapy) for men and women around the U.S., but bioidentical hormones. Only bioidenticals are natural, plant-based, professionally compounded hormones that are molecularly identical to the hormones your body produces. This makes them a safer alternative to synthetic hormones. Don’t be fooled by drug companies pushing your buttons with that slogan “Is It Low T?” They don’t make money from bioidentical hormones because they can’t be patented… so guess which type of testosterone shots they’ll want to inject you with!

With treatment to boost testosterone and other male hormones, you can regain your confidence, as well as reverse or prevent both minor and serious health conditions attributed to hormone imbalance.

Ready to get started with your andropause treatment? No need to travel. The test for low testosterone and other male hormones can be performed anywhere in the United States through our national laboratory partner, followed by a phone consultation with our physician.
