Hormone Balance for Men

Hormone Balance for Men

Many men believe that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is designed only for women who undergo menopause, perimenopause or related hormonal imbalance. The truth is that men also undergo hormonal decline as they age called Andropause.

Andropause is a progressive decline of free and total testosterone as they age, beginning around 30 years of age which results in physiological and psychological changes with varying degrees of severity. Symptoms are typically related to low testosterone, but in some cases by high estrogen levels or a combination of both.

 

 

Low T or Testosterone levels are associated with:

  • Heart disease such as hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Diabetes
  • Rapid aging
  • Arthritis
  • Pain
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease

Signs and Symptoms of Low T or Testosterone levels include:

  • Loss of mean body mass and inability to retain
  • Weight gain and increased fat mass
  • Loss of hair
  • Increased skin condition and wrinkling
  • Mental and physical fatigue
  • Mood disorders and irritability
  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of concentration, motivation, ambition
  • Sexual dysfunction, loss of sexual desire, erectile dysfunction
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Diabetes and increased blood sugar levels

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help restore the hormone deficiency, imbalance, or fluctuations that may cause the undesired symptoms.
