Hormone Therapy for Men
Symptoms of testosterone deficiency affect approximately 1 in 200 men and may include: -
- reduced libido
This condition is commonly referred to as 'Andropause' and less often as 'Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male' (ADAM).
A man may be considered hypogonadal at any age if total testosterone is less than 200 ng/dl, or bioavailable testosterone is less than 60 ng/dl. Basaria and Dobs of Johns Hopkins University recommend that elderly men with symptoms of hypogonadism and a total testosterone level < 300 ng/dl should be started on hormone replacement.
We have a laboratory equipped with the most advanced and comprehensive range of equipment, devices and chemicals to enable us to customise medication to suit any individual need.
Our focus is providing the best possible treatments available to patients and health care providers who are looking for ways to optimise therapy.
The entire staff of pharmacists and technicians under the direction of the pharmacist principal, Antony Accordino, has extensive training and expertise in extemporaneous compounding. Staff members update their knowledge by attending seminars and medical conferences across Australia, learning about the latest research and technology.
Our pharmacists also are recognised for their expertise in biologically identical hormone replacement therapy and other alternative therapies. All of the pharmacists are available to consult with both health care providers and patients. We can help you choose the right drug, route of administration, and dosage.
