HGH Therapy FAQ
HGH Therapy for men has gained significant popularity over the past 30 years due in large part to an increase in funding for scientific studies related to AGHD (Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency). As a result, we now know that HGH in men decreases exponentially in the years following puberty. For some perspective, the average 40-year-old man has been in HGH decline for nearly 25 years.

What is HGH therapy?
HGH, or human growth hormone, is naturally produced by your body throughout the course of your life. During childhood and adolescence, it’s important for fueling growth. And as an adult, you need HGH to keep all of your organs and tissues in optimal health. Unfortunately, the production of HGH starts to decline sometime around middle age – and even earlier for some people.
HGH therapy is designed to replenish your hormonal levels and restore a more ideal balance so that your body has everything it needs for proper function. This treatment uses a scientifically-developed form of HGH, called “synthetic” (man-made) human growth hormone.
What are the benefits of HGH therapy?
There are various reasons an individual might benefit from undergoing HGH therapy. Typically, it is most often recommended for patients that have a growth hormone deficiency that is resulting in undesirable side effects.
When HGH injections are used to treat a deficiency, some of the benefits can include:
- More energy
- More stamina for exercise/physical activity
- Easier weight loss
- Less body fat
- Increased muscle mass
When implemented alongside an effective nutrition and fitness plan, HGH therapy can be a great option for patients that want to look and feel like their very best selves.
And consider this: when you’re able to pursue a healthier, happier lifestyle, it’s possible to improve many other aspects of your well-being. For example, you might notice that you feel considerably less stressed, anxious, or frustrated because you aren’t chronically exhausted. Or, your personal relationships might improve as a result of your increased self-confidence. For so many Ehormones MD patients, HGH therapy ends up being one of the best decisions they ever make for their quality of life.
How much does HGH therapy cost?
All of our age management treatments, including testosterone replacement and HGH therapy, are highly individualized. This means that no two treatment plans are alike, and the cost of HGH therapy can vary depending on the plan you choose to follow.
It might be tempting to search for the least expensive forms of HGH therapy out there, but be aware that there are many deals that are too good to be true. Some HGH companies, particularly those based in other countries, sell low-quality, adulterated, and ineffective products. Also, many of the cheaper HGH options don’t include any doctor supervision – so there isn’t a professional monitoring your health and safety.
Instead, invest in doctor-supervised HGH therapy that’s customized according to your needs. At Ehormones MD, our team of professionals can help you select the anti-aging therapies that fit your budget without putting you at risk (or sacrificing your results!).
How do I know if I need HGH therapy?
Like many of our patients, you may have discovered Ehormones MD while you were searching for answers about the frustrating side effects of aging. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, pinpointing potential problems is generally a simple and straightforward process.
If you need a test for HGH deficiency, one of our doctors will administer a very small dosage of a medication that stimulates your pituitary gland, which is responsible for growth hormone production. Then, we will monitor how much growth hormone is produced and released. If you are below an optimal level, then HGH therapy may be right for you.
Are there side effects to HGH therapy?
Because Ehormones MD prioritizes a highly-tailored approach to age management therapies, we are able to avoid unwanted side effects for the majority of our patients. Keep in mind that every patient experience is different, but our focus will always be to prescribe an ideal dosage that supports steady progress without causing side effects.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy FAQ
Testosterone Replacement Therapy for men is becoming more and more common as men are increasingly aware of the potential benefits. Testosterone Replacement Therapy can help men improve their mental clarity and focus. Additional benefits include increased muscle mass, libido, and motivation, while decreasing central body fat. Symptoms of low testosterone and/or low HGH levels are common among men over the age of 30.
What is testosterone therapy?
Testosterone replacement therapy (also called TRT, testosterone treatment, or low-testosterone therapy) provides a safe, effective way to restore and balance your testosterone levels to improve your sense of wellbeing.
There are many types of testosterone therapy, including:
- Transdermal (skin patches)
- Implants (pellets)
Ideally, you will work closely with a medical provider to determine which form of therapy is right for you.
What are the signs of low-T?
Wondering if it’s time for you to consider visiting a low testosterone doctor? At Ehormones MD, our experts work with a diverse range of men experiencing varying symptoms of low testosterone. Low-T symptoms can range from subtle to severe, such as:
- Decrease in sex drive
- Issues with erectile dysfunction or sexual performance
- Weight gain/increase in body fat, especially around the midsection
- A decline in muscle/bone mass
- Trouble sleeping
- Difficulties with focus, concentration, and memory
- Depression or anxiety
Oftentimes, our patients come to an Ehormones testosterone clinic saying that they simply feel “off.” If you feel as if you are struggling to be your best self, particularly if those feelings are increasing as you age, you may be a good candidate for testosterone therapy.
What are the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy?
Understandably, one of the most common questions we receive from potential patients is in regards to what they stand to gain from TRT. Because we take a highly tailored approach to treatment, devising customized therapy plans for each of our patients, your experience will be shaped by your unique goals and symptoms.
However, the benefits of TRT typically include:
- More energy
- Improved moods
- Restored sexual satisfaction and performance, as well as improved sex drive
- Easier weight loss/muscle gains
What are the risks of testosterone replacement therapy?
For most men, the side effects of TRT are few to none. And while serious issues are extremely rare, it is important that you choose an experienced and reputable provider to ensure your health and safety.
At Ehormones MD, all hormone therapies are fully supervised by a medical doctor. Our patients are closely monitored and regularly assessed, allowing us to take a proactive approach to their treatment success as well as their long-term health. So, should side effects occur, your care team is well-equipped to catch them early and make adjustments to your treatment as needed.
Generally, any TRT side effects are minor and uncommon but can include acne, swelling in the ankles, or tenderness in the breast tissue area. If you have personal risk factors related to your health or family history, we’ll work with you to make sure we choose the most effective and safest path forward.
Is TRT or HGH therapy the same thing as taking steroids?
Sometimes, men are hesitant to consider TRT or HGH treatment because they believe it is similar to the risky steroid regimens followed by pro athletes or bodybuilders. But while some of the anabolic steroids used in these scenarios may contain testosterone, testosterone replacement and HGH therapy are completely different treatments.
In TRT, targeted doses are used to replace and rebalance the natural levels of hormones. The illegal steroids used by athletes generally contain extremely high doses of testosterone or testosterone-like substances, in combination with other substances (in often dangerous amounts). The goal of these “doping” regimens is not to rebalance hormone levels, but rather to drive levels higher than they would ever be normal.
Does testosterone replacement therapy improve sex drive?
One of the most common symptoms of low-T is a decrease in sexual desire, and many men also experience difficulties in achieving and maintaining erections. Add this to the constant fatigue, irritability, and weight gain, and it’s no wonder that low testosterone can wreak havoc on your sex life.
But because TRT is designed to rebalance your testosterone levels, it can be an extremely effective way to ramp up your performance – and confidence – in the bedroom. And as you feel more and more like yourself (or better yet, the version of you at your prime!), you can likely look forward to an increasingly active and enjoyable sex life.
Your TRT doctor from Ehormones MD will assess your specific challenges in order to pinpoint the optimal solution. For many of our patients, testosterone therapy eliminates the need for erectile dysfunction medications altogether.
Does testosterone replacement therapy help with weight loss?
TRT gets your testosterone levels back on track, allowing your body to return to a more balanced state. Essentially, your body will be able to function more optimally because it isn’t running on a testosterone deficit. Included in the multitude of TRT benefits is easier fat and weight loss, paired with an increase in muscle size – and there’s research to prove that. By combining a tailored TRT plan with consistent strength training and exercise, you can be well on your way to getting in the best shape of your life.
How do I know which treatment options are right for me?
Feeling unsure about how to pick the best testosterone replacement or HGH therapy options for your needs? That’s what the experts at Ehormones MD are here for.
From your very first consultation, the entire process is centered on your specific needs, goals, and preferences. And because we begin by thoroughly assessing your health, symptoms, and medical history, your hormone doctor will be well-equipped with the key information we need to develop an effective plan.
We’ll recommend the options that will provide you with optimal results in the shortest amount of time, and then go from there. If you’d prefer to make adjustments for the sake of time, budget, or any other reason, the decision is yours.
How much does testosterone therapy cost at Ehormones MD?
The cost of testosterone replacement therapy can sometimes lead men to put off their treatments. It’s not unusual for men to believe that they simply need to “learn to live with” the effects of low-T, because they’re worried that paying for TRT isn’t feasible.
However, many of our new patients are surprised to learn that TRT can actually be far more affordable than they expected. For some patients, TRT may be covered by insurance, which further reduces the cost.
It’s difficult to put an extra dollar amount on how much TRT costs, mainly because it’s such a personalized process with a wide range of factors. For example, one patient might opt for an oral testosterone pill and the minimal scope of treatment, because his T-levels are only slightly deficient. But another patient might be best served by an extended treatment plan of testosterone injections, combined with a few other supplementary medications to support his results. These two patients would likely have very different final costs for their TRT.
Ultimately, it’s important to consider what you’ll be receiving when you invest in TRT: you’ll be able to reclaim your quality of life and truly enjoy yourself again. And if you ask us, your health and happiness is worth it.

Age Management Therapy
What is age management therapy?
Age management therapy is based on a revolutionary new approach to preventative health, aiming to support an increased quality of life and improved wellness. It focuses on rebalancing your body’s natural hormone levels to help reduce (and prevent) the various symptoms of aging. Think of it as a way to optimize your body in every way possible.
Will age management therapy stop the aging process?
While it’s certainly true that an effective anti-aging treatment plan can keep you feeling like your younger self, it cannot completely prevent the aging process itself. Aging is a normal part of life, and when navigated gracefully, it can be a beautiful thing.
What age management therapy can do is target the signs and symptoms of aging. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, it may be your best way to reduce your risks of age-related illnesses and other health challenges.
How does age management therapy work?
Like all of the therapies and treatments provided by Ehormones MD, our anti-aging programs are completely customized according to each patient’s individual needs and goals. So, no two age management plans look exactly the same!
However, they do all share the same basic principles. Age management therapy uses an advanced form of synthetic hormones, which scientists have developed to be biologically identical to the ones your body already naturally produces. Known as “bioidentical” or “bio-equivalent” hormones, they are an incredibly effective option for supplementing any hormonal deficiencies that may be affecting your overall wellness. Because their molecular structure matches your natural hormones, your body can easily utilize them in the exact same way.
What are the benefits of age management therapy?
Every individual has a unique experience with age management therapy, primarily because they each have their own starting points and goals. However, you can generally look forward to a broad range of positive effects of age management therapy, including:
- More energy
- Easier weight loss
- Better moods
- Improved sexual performance
Is age management therapy only for older patients?
No, age management is not something reserved for individuals of a certain age. And actually, there are ant-aging treatment options that can be ideal for younger patients that want to be proactive about their overall well-being. Achieving a proper hormone balance is a goal that would benefit anyone.
What are the signs you may need age management therapy?
Hormonal imbalances can cause an array of unpleasant symptoms, many of which are quickly written off as simply being a part of getting older. Even for younger individuals, the signs of hormone imbalance are often attributed to stress, fatigue, or other external causes.
However, in so many of these cases, effective age management therapy could be life-changing. So, if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms of hormonal imbalance, it could be time to take action:
- Constantly feeling tired
- Loss of motivation
- Unexplained weight gain
- Changes in your body composition (less muscle, more fat)
- Fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning skin
- Decreased sex drive
- Issues with erectile dysfunction
- Feeling like you have “brain fog”
- Trouble sleeping
- Irritability, chronic stress, or feelings of depression and anxiety
- Problems with memory and concentration
- Trouble sleeping
At Ehormones MD, we are passionate in our belief that every person deserves to be living their best life. So, if you suspect that you aren’t feeling as good as you could be, we encourage you to visit us for a no-pressure consultation. There are so many factors that could be contributing to your subpar sense of well-being, many of which we may be able to help you resolve. And because our hormone clinics are led by an experienced team of healthcare professionals, you can be confident that we will provide you with an accurate recommendation you can truly trust.
