Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs
What does AAG Health do?
We are a network of physician’s offices that specialize in preventative medicine with an emphasis on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for adult men and women experiencing symptoms due to hormone deficiency.
Hormone replacement is normally required due to low hormone levels of human growth hormone, testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, HCG and other naturally occurring hormones brought on by menopause in women and andropause (male menopause) in men.
Where are you located?
Our main location is in South Florida however we have numerous locations throughout the United States. We are always adding affiliate doctors specializing in hormone replacement so please check with us to see if we have a doctor in your area. You are welcome to call one of our hormone replacement specialists at 1-800-325-1325.
Am I required to see one of your doctors?
Yes. All of our patients are required to see an AAG affiliated doctor for the physical exam and medical consultation.
Can I do this over the phone or internet?
No. For your safety and to comply with the various legal regulations throughout the country all of our patients must see one of our physicians before starting any hormone therapy program.
How do I get started with hormone replacement?
Call AAG Health at to get started today! You may also get started by ordering the initial lab work to determine if you have low hormone levels including low testosterone (Low T); low human growth hormone (HGH Deficiency); or a progesterone or estrogen imbalance.
Order Initial Lab Work or call our patient care specialists at 1-800-325-1325 to get started.
If I go to one of your physicians will I automatically qualify for hormone treatment, hormone medications or injections?
No. You are required to do lab work before starting a hormone treatment program. We will only treat patients with hormonal deficiencies including Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency; Hypogonadism / Andropause; Low T (Low Testosterone Levels); Menopause and Hypothyroidism.
If your hormone levels are optimal or there are contraindications to treatment then you may not qualify for hormone replacement therapy. In addition, if our physician feels that you are looking to use the products for performance enhancement or any other non-medical use, you will be ineligible for hormone treatment.
How are the hormones replaced?
Testosterone is replaced using either injections, a testosterone cream, patch or a transdermal topical gel formulated to your needs that is applied to the surface of the skin in order to increase low testosterone levels. Estrogen and progesterone is best taken via a specially formulated cream. HGH, Human Growth Hormone also known as Somatropin, is taken by injection only.
Do you accept insurance for hormone replacment therapy?
No. In order to provide the best hormone treatment options we do not accept any third party payments including insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. In addition, we will not fill out any paperwork or respond to any inquiry from insurance companies.
What are your hormone therapy prices?
At AAG Health & Wellness we do not offer a “one size fits all” approach to hormone therapy programs. Everyone is unique, therefore our replacement programs are designed based on your specific needs formulated and based on comprehensive lab work, physical exam, and hormone deficiency symptoms. Therefore, we can only give exact pricing for hormone replacment therapy including testosterone therapy and human growth hormone therapy after you have been seen and evaluated by the physician. For further information on pricing please go to our pricing tab. Hormone Replacement Therapy Pricing
Is hormone therapy safe?
Yes. There are numerous studies that have come out over the past years that have attested to the safety of natural hormone replacement. Remember, all AAG Health's programs are physician supervised and medically monitored to offer you absolute confidence and security. We only prescribe physiological dosages and we use only bio-identical brand name hormones that are FDA-approved in our replacement therapy programs including testosterone and human growth hormone replacement. In fact, recent studies have shown it dangerous to have very low hormone levels so seeking treatment to replace a hormone deficiency is an important health issue.
Are there side effects?
As with any medical program there is always a chance of minor side effects. Because our doctors only prescribe medically appropriate dosages side effects are minimal. In fact, less than 5 % of our patients experience minor side effects. These side effects go away by reducing the dosage of the hormone medication. All of our programs include follow up lab testing to ensure the correct treatment dosage and minimize side effects even further.
When should I think about replacing my hormones?
In the average man and woman, hormones start to decline in the mid to late twenties. By age 35 declines are sufficient that symptoms may be evident. The best time to start replacing hormones is when you start to notice symptoms that affect your quality of life. In most people this happens between the ages of 35 and 50. However we have men in their 80's that have successfully benefited from our HRT programs.
How do I know if the program is working?
Typically, you will notice that you are feeling better within four to six weeks. However, we also do lab testing, body composition tests and bone density tests while you are on the program. These tests will show you exactly the improvements you are making. We carefully monitor you and fine tune your body to its optimum hormone levels. Beware of any programs that let you order hormones but do not provide you good follow up care, blood testing and maintenance.
I've seen other clinics advertised, why is AAG the best place to go to?
Expertise: AAG Health Clinic's doctors are experts and authorities in hormone replacement therapy including bio-identical hormones, age management science and anti-aging medical spa procedures and protocols. Our physician's provide highly personalized medical care from lab testing, physical exam and evaluation including all follow-up. A holistic approach is taken tailoring your hormone program to fit your specific medical needs and requirements. Exercise, nutrition and diet are incorporated in AAG Health's hormone treatment programs and only premium quality brand name hormones are prescribed.
Be careful with any clinic that does not require a physical exam with a medical doctor. This is unsafe and unethical. AAG Health Clinic requires all patients to see a doctor before starting a hormone therapy program. The doctor is the person who decides if HRT is right for you and will only prescribe hormone replacement if there is medical need. Some other clinics 'push' hormones on everyone regardless of medical need. In these clinics, a commissioned salesperson, not the doctor, is the person making important treatment decisions.
Complete Treatment Programs: Our programs also include all medications, the initial follow up lab work, all follow up consultations, and all follow up exams in the pricing. Other companies charge extra for lab work and charge fees every time you talk to a doctor. Therefore, when you get a price from us you are confident that there are no hidden charges, “fees”, lab charges, or other hidden costs. We are so confident in our services that if you are not satisfied with the doctor, we will refund your doctor fees.
Better Business Accredited: "A+ BBB Rating" AAG Health and The Anti-Aging Group Hormone Treatment Clinic is the leading provider of hormone replacement therapy including prescription testosterone and HGH hormone treatments, accredited with the BBB having an A+ for patient care and satisfaction.
Do you recommend replacing both testosterone and human growth hormones at the same time?
If the doctor feels that you have a growth hormone deficiency (low HGH) and a testosterone deficiency (low T) he may recommend both testosterone and HGH at the same time. If you only have a deficiency in one hormone he will only recommend replacing that hormone. After complete blood testing, the physician will evaluate you and only then tailor a specific hormone program to your medical requirements.
Human Growth Hormone has a bad reputation in the media. Why is that?
HGH, Human Growth Hormone is a naturally occuring beneficial hormone produced in the human body. HGH is responsible for cell growth, regeneration and repair. The bad reputation is unfortunate and not justified. The reason this reputation exists is because it has recently been the drug of choice by athletes. These athletes take superhuman dosages of growth hormone that are generally more than ten times greater than what our doctor will prescribe.
Taking amounts this exceedingly large often leads to serious side effects that get exaggerated by the media. Our physicians only prescribe HGH if you need HGH. This “need” is determined by your IGF-1 levels and your symptoms. Having a growth hormone deficiency can lead to very serious health issues. By bringing your HGH levels to an optimal level, you should feel better, gain back energy and have a healthier life.
Will hormone replacement cause my natural hormone production to decline?
Cycling of hormones is designed to minimize the possibility of a decline in your natural hormone production. Cycling is taking time off from hormone replacement. When outside (exogenous) hormones are introduced into the body, the gland producing that hormone senses that the body has an adequate supply of the hormone and does not need to work as hard and may become "lazy". Cycling is mandatory for growth hormone and for men under 45 on testosterone. In addition, on-cycle and post-cycle medications such as HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) can be prescribed to promote the natural production of testosterone and maximize results.
Will hormone therapy help sexual dysfunction?
Sexual dysfunction (ED / Erectile Dysfunction) can have many causes; however replacing hormones is the best place to start treatment. We suggest raising your testosterone to a healthy level to boost your sex drive. By boosting low testosterone levels any erectle dysfunction or symptoms of impotence due to low testosterone can be alleviated. If there is still need for furhter assistance in boosting sexual drive and performance, there are other treatment options and testosterone boosting supplements that are available after talking to our doctor. If testosterone levels are low, hormone replacement has been successful in over 90% of patients with sexual dysfunction and low sex drive.
Is hormone replacement the same thing as steroid abuse?
No. When we treat patients we only treat those patients with deficiencies. We also only use bio-identical hormones which are identical in structure to what your body already produces. We also only prescribe therapeutic dosages intended to bring your hormone levels to an optimal level that is still within the clinically normal range.
Athletes who abuse steroids generally have normal hormone levels to begin with. They take steroids in order to increase muscle mass or get an unfair advantage in competitive sports, not to treat a medical condition or hormonal deficiency. These athletes are seeking super physiological dosages that are usually greater than five times the recommended therapeutic dosage. They also usually take blends or “stacks” of designer anabolic steroids that are not bio-identical in nature. This is very dangerous and can lead to serious medical conditions.
