Bioidentical Hormones For Men

About Andropause

Decreased testosterone levels in men

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not just for women. At roughly the same time as women, throughout their 30’s and 40’s, a man’s hormone levels begin to decline. The term used to define this period has been labeled andropause, also known as “male menopause.”

A few of the signs and symptoms of andropause include muscle loss, lower sex drive, weight gain, fatigue, sleep problems, erectile dysfunction, and memory loss.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men can be the key to overcoming andropause. If you identify with any of the symptoms listed above contact us today to see if bioidentical hormone replacement could be of benefit for you.

It’s more than just a “sex hormone”

Starting around age 35, men lose one to five percent of their testosterone production annually. Multiply that out, and on average men lose 20 percent of their testosterone production each decade, with some men losing it much more rapidly than that.

Over the long term, men with decreased testosterone levels are more at risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, and muscle loss.

Some symptoms of the onset of testosterone loss in men include fatigue, memory loss, less productive workouts, loss of muscle mass, decreased sexual performance, loss of libido, among others. Obviously, these symptoms can have negative effects on a man’s relationship with his partner.

There is a better way. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men can help fight back against the symptoms of testosterone loss and restore your health and vitality as you age.

Male Estrogen

Yes, men need estrogen too!

While most people think of estrogen as a hormone found only in females, this is clearly a false notion. Men need estrogen too. The amount needed varies from individual to individual, but everyone has an “ideal range” that they should try to maintain.

Contrary to popular belief, estrogen is not bad for your heart or your prostate, and it will not cause you to gain belly fat. Some of these false beliefs have been perpetuated by pharmaceutical companies in an effort to sell more drugs. Don’t believe it!

If you’re worried about your testosterone levels, you should consider estrogen also. Estrogen has been shown to be linked to testosterone production in males, with a decrease in estrogen levels signaling a decline in testosterone. Estrogen, like testosterone, has beneficial effects in the long and short term for males.
