Dr. Maupin Interviews Patient Dennis Morgan

Posted on

Learn how Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and Dr. Maupin helped patient Dennis Morgan “Get his life back”.

Dennis is a 68 year old retired attorney. He was the General Counsel for a large natural gas company for thirty years.

When Dennis was in his early fifties, he was staying at the Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona. While he was getting a massage he mentioned to his therapist that he was thinking a lot about the song Desperado, (the Eagles song) with the reference being to “losing all his highs and lows, ain’t it funny how the feeling goes”. He shared that he was more and more aware that this was how he was feeling. He said he was only 51 or 52 and this was really beginning to bother him he felt like he had lost his mojo, that drive that made him click was disappearing.

The therapist mentioned that there was a “Miracle worker” in the valley named Dr. Geno Tutera. Dr. Tutera specialized in hormone replacement therapies that helped both men and women in getting that energy and alertness back.  Dennis got Dr Tutera’s information and contacted him and the rest, as they say, was history.

Dennis saw Dr. Tutera for several years and received hormone replacement from him. Eventually Dennis moved away and lost touch with Dr. Tutera. While out of contact with Dr. Tutera Dennis tried testosterone gels instead of the pellets he had received from Geno. He found that they just did not do it for him so he tried self injections but did not like that process either. He got in touch with Dr. Tutera again and Dr Tutera referred him to Dr. Kathy Maupin at BioBalance Health.

As luck would have it, Dr. Tutera had learned about hormone replacement and the use of testosterone pellets inserted under the skin from his partner  who now works in Canada. Dr. Maupin had found Dr. Tutera when she had her own personal health crisis with lost hormones and was so happy with her results that she asked him to train her so that she could provide the same help and relief to women in her practice. Dr. Tutera trained her and she opened a practice in Kansas City and in St. Louis. The interesting thing is that all three of these doctors had met each other at medical school when attending the University of Missouri! After training Dr. Maupin, Dr. Tutera decided to train other doctors in the same methodology and opened his company Sotto Pele. This has been very successful for him.

Dr. Tutera put Dennis in touch with Dr. Maupin and he has been a regular patient here for about seven years. Dr. Maupin thinks Dennis is a perfect example to point out as a representative male receiving hormone replacements. Dennis is excellent as an example for several reasons.

  1. Dennis works out regularly (they actually use the same trainer at the same facility). Dennis works out about four days a week with the trainer and then does aerobics and ab exercises the other days. He keeps himself in great shape. As men age, they tend to lose muscles. Dennis is working to prevent that muscle loss and stay vigorous and healthy.
  2. In addition to working out and keeping his muscles fit and strong, Dennis follows the diet plan that was recommended to him from BioBalance Health. He says that this point it is essentially automated and is not hard to follow. It is essentially a low carb diet with organic ingredients. He does not eat a lot of prepared foods or junk foods. He is not a fanatic about it, when he travels or goes out with others he will eat based on the menu or activity. But generally, he is conditioned to eat a healthy diet that is low in carbs and moderate in fats.
  3. Finally, Dennis gets testosterone pellet injections. When he first came to Dr. Maupin they agreed that he would try the injection method. That was not working out they way they hoped. Dr. Maupin used her expertise to determine why and recommended that he go to the insertion of pellets instead. They are both very happy with the results. This is one of the advantages of coming to BioBalance Health, Dr. Maupin has an expertise in problem solving and diagnostics regarding side effects and other issues. She was able to help Dennis and now they are both content with the state of his progress and his health. The symptoms that brought him to Dr. Maupin are under control or are eliminated. Dennis is happy, healthy and active. You would never take him for a sixty eight or sixty nine year old man.  His cholesterol is under control and he has come off of the medicines he had been on since he has been seeing Dr. Maupin.

Dennis reports that he is not deprived and is healthy. Dr. Maupin is happy to have a chance to tell his story because she wants other men to know what can happen for them.
