What is the process?
Contact the office closest to you via phone or through our web contact form. This will give us the information we need to get you started.
We have seven locations across the Midwest and West Coast to best serve our clients’ needs.
Get your Labs
To begin the process we draw blood to find out where you are currently at.
Each of our locations is equipped with the ability to draw your labs but if it’s more convenient for you, we can order your labs at any LabCorp location.
Set an Appointment
Once your labs are back, we will set an appointment to meet with one of our providers to review your labs and determine if hormone therapy is right for you.
You can meet face-to-face or we can set up a telemedicine conference.
Formulate a Plan
After we decide that therapy is right for you, we will discuss the various treatment options we have and choose the one that best suits your goals.
We will continue to work together to adjust your plan as your goals change.
It’s that simple!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does the monthly fee include?
Our program provides hormone therapy that is designed to address specific issues with each person. There are NO contracts, NO lock-ins, NO commitments, and NO cancellations fees. Our program includes:
- All lab testing related to hormone optimization
- All follow-up exams
- All patient consulations
- All physical examinations
- A complete and personalized therapeutic program including all necessary drugs to maintain optimized hormone levels with the supplies needed
- Workout plan
- Diet optimization plan
Who needs optimized hormones?
You may be suffering from Testosterone deficiency if you have the following symptoms:
- Reduced sex drive
- Hot flashes
- Muscle weakness and loss of muscle tone
- Weight gain (specifically the abdomen)
How much testosterone will I need?
Your team will carefully review your medical questionnaire, lab work, and records, and will prescribe the exact amount needed to optimize your levels. We use a combination of lab testing and monitoring your results to identify the ideal dosages. Optimize U’s team uses creams, injections, or a combination of both.
Is Testosterone Optimization safe?
Yes. Many studies have shown that hormone therapy is safe when administered in the correct dosage and monitored by a qualified physician.
How long until I start to feel the result from hormone optimization?
Some patients begin to feel the effects immediately. Most start to see benefits between 4-6 weeks, and about 25% take about 6 months to see benefits. What is important to remember is it took a long time for your body to get to this point and it may take a few months to get your hormones back to being optimized.
Being active, following our workout plan, and diet plan will expedite the benefits of hormone optimization.
What health issues are associated with testosterone deficiency?
Low testosterone in the male body is a result of a disorder called Hypogonadism. Testosterone affects bone mass, fat distribution, and muscle development. In addition, testosterone maintains energy levels, fertility, and sex drive.
Are there any side effects of testosterone replacement therapy?
As you consider whether or not testosterone therapy is right for you, there are side effects of testosterone replacement that you need to take into account. For example, if you already struggle with sleep apnea, testosterone therapy could potentially make your sleep apnea worse.
Another side effect could be decreased testicular size, and, in some cases, a decrease in sperm count. Fluid retention, liver toxicity, enlarged breast size, increased red blood cells, and acne are also potential side effects of testosterone replacement therapy. If you start to experience any negative side effects, report them to your local clinic immediately.
How do I refill my medication?
You will refill your medication through the eMedical Fusion software portal. You should receive instructions on how to set up your account. You are also always welcome to call in and one of our staff will help you to refill your medications. You should refill your medications when you feel you have about one to two weeks of medication left.
When will I get lab work done?
Lab work will be done every three to five months. Our staff will call you when your lab work is due. It is important to note that if you feel there is something not exactly right, you are always welcome to get your labs done early.
It’s time to revive your life.
