Older men will often experience a dip in their testosterone level. This is very normal and a part of getting older. This can cause a number of problems. For example, men with low testosterone will often suffer from a low sex drive and a problem getting an erection. This is known as erectile dysfunction. Obviously, this can be a very serious issue that can ruin relationships if it is not taken care of. However, there is no reason that a man has to live with this problem. Modern medical science can help an older guy to feel like he is 20 years younger. This can be done with the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Here are some things for you to consider when you are deciding where to get this treatment performed.
1. Has the clinic or lab that is offering the HRT treatment been around for a long time?
It goes without saying that you need to be sure the place that is giving you the HRT treatment knows what they are doing. Otherwise, you could have some unintended side effects after your treatment. You need to do some research into the background of any place you are considering for your treatment. How long have they been around? Have they ever had any lawsuits filed against them for negligence? Find out exactly who you are dealing with. Do not rely on the website of the clinic or lab to tell you everything.
2. Talk to a few previous patients to find out what they think about their HRT treatment.
It would be a good idea to have a chat with several of the people who have received HRT treatment from any lab or clinic you are thinking about using. Find out if they are happy with the treatment they have received. Would they recommend that other people go to the same place for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the future? Did they have any side effects or problems after the treatment?
3. Will your insurance cover your HRT treatment?
You should check with your insurance provider to find out if they will cover HRT treatment. If they do, ask them to provide you with a list of approved facilities where you will be able to receive the treatment. Find out how much of the treatment they are going to pay for.
