Optimal Health & Wellbeing.
Optimizing your testosterone levels in St Louis results in more optimal health and a sense of well-being. As we age, our testosterone levels may drop by 1-2% per year. This results in a loss of focus, decreased sexual performance and desire, decreased muscle mass and bone density, increased plaque formation in our arteries, insulin resistance, and reduced energy. With testosterone replacement therapy, we can reverse this aging process allowing you to live your life as you desire.

Weekly Testosterone Injections
Testosterone replacement therapy is performed as a single weekly injection. Some patients elect to come into the office once per week to have this performed and a large number of patients will elect to perform this procedure at home. The needles used for these injections are short and small in caliber.
Ongoing Lab Follow-up
Laboratory values are checked every 3 to 4 months to monitor your condition and adjust your hormone levels. Initially, we recheck your levels 4 to 6 weeks after beginning therapy.

How it works
Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone in the human body. As it we age in St Louis, testosterone production and levels steadily decline. This contributes to the aging process. By optimizing your hormone levels, we can restore vitality and health. Testosterone optimization is not the equivalent of restoring testosterone levels to “normal”. “Normal” can be insufficient for a vital energetic lifestyle.
Weekly Injections Optimize Hormone Levels
Testosterone hormone levels need to be sustained at an optimal level. For most patients, this entails a weekly injection utilizing a small gauge 1/2′ needle. Patients can elect to perform these injections in the convenience of their home or come into the office for administration of the injection.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you feel you have any symptoms of decreased testosterone levels, you may be a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy. Most men over 40 will have less than optimal hormone levels. We have treated some patients in their 20s and 30s with inadequate testosterone levels.
There is a difference between normal and optimal. Normal testosterone levels can be inadequate for the maintenance of a healthy vibrant lifestyle.
The Edge for Men does not receive reimbursement through insurance companies. Most health insurance companies will not cover testosterone optimization. They may pay for testosterone replacement therapy when levels are measured below the laboratory norms.
Injections of testosterone can reduce the body’s production of testosterone and sperm by the testicles. For younger men or men desiring to have future children, the addition of HCG injections twice per week will sustain testicular production of testosterone and sperm.
If you decide to go off testosterone therapy, your levels will drop and may drop to a lower level than before you began therapy due to ongoing aging and/or suppression of testosterone until your body senses a need to increase its production. At that time, your body’s testosterone may or may not return to your pre-treatment levels.
