Our primary care, best NYC doctor Fathollahi and a top rated team of New York internists provide men’s health annual examinations which are tailored to meet your exact needs which change throughout life. Our extensive men’s screening tests can include prostate evaluation and hormonal status to help you gain and maintain an optimal level of health.
If necessary, some of the therapies we can provide are hormone replacement therapy for men, including bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
If your medical history and family history indicates the need, NYC md specialists can provide routine screening for prostate cancer. Tests include a digital rectal exam, to detect if the prostate is enlarged or irregularly shaped.
The PSA test is equally straightforward and is a blood test that can be conducted in conjunction with other routine tests.
The test measures the level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood, as this is a protein produced by the prostate. An increased level of PSA can be one of the first signs of prostate cancer.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
As you age, it’s not unusual for levels of testosterone to decrease, and this occurs in nearly 20% of men aged 70. Testosterone levels gradually decline, usually about 1% each year after age 30 or 40.
Low testosterone levels can cause unwanted symptoms such as:
- Weight gain
- Low sex drive
- Low energy
Hormone replacement therapy can help men with low levels of testosterone, potentially reducing the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Hormone replacement therapy replaces the hormones lost, restoring levels, and reducing unwanted symptoms.
Testosterone is an important hormone produced mainly in the testicles, and it helps to maintain:
- Good muscle strength and mass
- Bone density
- Fat distribution
- Sperm production
- Sex drive
- Facial and body hair
- Red blood cell production
Sometimes low testosterone levels can change sleep patterns, causing insomnia. Low testosterone levels are also associated with metabolic syndrome that encompasses health problems such as elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels and elevated blood pressure and blood sugar.
If you have signs of low testosterone, our physicians can provide a lab test. If testosterone levels are quite low, we may recommend hormone replacement therapy, but we will want to discuss the benefits and possible risks of treatment. For men with very low levels of testosterone, the benefits usually outweigh any potential risks.
However, men with borderline levels may be advised to use lifestyle modifications to increase energy levels, for example, by taking exercise regularly. It’s also helpful to make sure you have a balanced and nutritious diet.
