HRT for Men (TRT)
Hormone Replacement Therapy is often associated only with treating the symptoms of menopausal women.
However, HRT for men, also known as Testosterone Replacement Therapy (or TRT) is becoming more popular, as more men discover the benefits.
Here at BioID Health, we aim to restore the balance of hormones in your body, by providing innovative, doctor-led bioidentical HRT for men.
What is the male menopause?
Whilst it’s perfectly natural for testosterone levels to decrease gradually with age, some men experience more symptoms than others. Often referred to as the ‘male menopause’, this decline in testosterone can cause:
– Erectile dysfunction
– Decrease in facial and bodily hair growth
– Decrease in muscle mass
– Loss of bone mass (osteoporosis)
– Growth of breast tissue (gynecomastia)
– Mood swings
– Insomnia or increased tiredness
– Poor short term memory and concentration
If you’re suffering from the effects of low testosterone, you’ll know that some of these symptoms can seriously affect your quality of life.
How does HRT for men treat these symptoms?
The aim of HRT for men / TRT is to replace testosterone, which the body produces less of with age.
By replacing lost testosterone, TRT can help to improve, and sometimes even completely eradicate, the symptoms of male menopause.
It can also decrease your risk of multiple diseases that are associated with getting older. These include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis, which are all more prevalent in men with low testosterone levels.
What is the difference between standard HRT for men and BioID TRT?
Whilst men are less likely to seek help from their GP than women, GPs are still usually the first port of call for many men who are experiencing symptoms associated with low testosterone.
GPs usually prescribe testosterone to bring your hormones to a level that is within a ‘normal range’. This spectrum includes the hormone levels of all males in the general population, from 18 years of age all the way through to 90.
Therefore, whilst your blood test results might come back to your GP as ‘normal’, they are only normal for the average male. Your GP might refuse to prescribe you testosterone due to these so-called ‘normal’ results.
BioID will restore your hormones to a level that is normal for you, not for the general population. We aim to optimise your hormones to the levels they were at in your 20s and 30s, when you were at the peak of your health and vitality. As the amount of bioidentical testosterone that you are prescribed will be tailored to the specific needs of your body, and not to the needs of the average male, the risk of side effects is greatly reduced.
If you’ve noticed any of the symptoms of low testosterone (listed above) then we recommend that you get in touch with our experts to request a blood test.
How does bioidentical TRT work?
Here at BioID Health, we provide bioidentical TRT that offers exceptional results.
When you get in touch with our team of expert clinicians, we will firstly obtain a detailed assessment of your hormone levels by conducting a comprehensive blood test. This will determine whether you have any specific hormonal imbalances, such as low testosterone, or vitamin deficiencies.
Once we have the results of your blood test, our specialist doctors will provide you with a bespoke treatment plan. This will be carefully curated to optimise your hormone levels, with the goal of eliminating your symptoms and restoring excellent health.
The long term health and wellbeing of our clients is important to us. As such, we’ll arrange to perform a second blood test following two months of treatment. If necessary, your medication can then be adjusted accordingly.
Our BioID TRT is supplied in three forms – lozenges, gels, or capsules – so you can select the method of treatment that suits you best.

What do our patients say?
Hear what one of our patients had to say about us:
Julie Green commented: “I suffered from menopause symptoms for a few years, including irritability, hot flushes, joint pain, and memory loss, to mention a few. I didn’t want to use HRT because I don’t believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution.
Dr. Kinsella saw me for a consultation, and following a simple blood test, he was able to figure out what I was missing. For the past three months, I’ve been taking a combination of oestrogen gel, progesterone, and vitamin D tablets, and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my overall happiness and well-being; even my hot flushes are less frequent.
Dr. Kinsella and his colleagues are still on hand, keeping a careful eye on me and conducting regular blood tests to check my levels. I’m back to my old self, and I owe it to the team to thank them.”
