Hormone Replacement Therapy

There is a common misconception many men have about hormone replacement therapy: that it is strictly for women. In fact, men benefit from testosterone replacement therapy to combat common health issues they experience every day. Unfortunately, many dismiss these issues as inevitable signs of aging. Hormone replacement therapy can help men live more youthful, energetic lives and combat the aging process.  Several recent men’s health research studies reveal that common physical and emotional symptoms are often attributed to low testosterone (low T).  

  • Decreased libido

  • Memory loss

  • Lack of motivation

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Weight gain

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle loss

  • Decreased strength

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Heart disease

  • Foggy thinking

  • Sleep disturbance

  • Thinning skin

  • Bone loss

  • Headaches

  • Body aches/joint pains

Testosterone

Men begin losing testosterone at the rate of 1-3% per year beginning at age 30.  There are many myths related to the treatment of low testosterone and a few replacement options to consider.  As evidence in the positive benefits of hormone replacement therapy grows, more and more hormonal supplements are appearing in the marketplace. Too often these supplements are the mass-produced, one size-fits-all variety that do not take into consideration the individual’s unique biological needs.  Hormone treatments can be expensive, require daily utilization, and in many cases, need to be carefully timed with their partner’s needs for normal sexual activities and pleasure. Therefore, more men are turning to a customized approach of addressing male hormonal deficiencies.
