K.O. is a 46yo male who arrived with Rheumatoid Arthritis, fatigue out of proportion and low Testosterone levels. His prior MD was having difficulty maintaining a therapeutic level and pt arrived for a 2nd opinion. Pt was trialed on bio-identical Testosterone suspension with significant improvement in his fatigue and pain. ‘Doc, I’m off of my Percocet and I was on that 3 times a day for over 3years for my pain!’ This patient feels comfortable being able to self-administer an oral/sublingual dose of medication which has no risk of bruising.
Interestingly, new research is showing how bio-identical HRT helps decrease the severity of Rheumatoid arthritis in women; sounds like it’s helping in men as well.
