Men and BHRT
Men experience unique health issues and risks. Many of these concerns center around hormones, specifically testosterone. But testosterone and other hormones can be risky to mess around with unless they are created specifically for you. Our men’s health section focuses on everything from testosterone replacement, a frequent need in aging men to infertility, an issue affecting as many as one in 10 couples. Testosterone is essential for the growth and development of the male sex organs as well as gender characteristics. In fact, testosterone is so key to men’s health that we offer both prescription and over the counter remedies for a range of related issues.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT for short is proving beneficial for men. As men age, men lose testosterone. Studies have shown than men start to lose 1.3% testosterone per year as early as their 30’s coming to the conclusion that men go through “menopause” per say dubbed Andopause. BHRT can help restore the normal hormonal balance giving men back their lust for life, improved memory, improved libido and build back muscle mass and tone. Bio-identical hormones are natural hormones that have the same chemical structure as hormones made by your own body. Natural hormones like testosterone are easily metabolized, allowing your body to incorporate them without the negative side effects often associated with hormones.
Loss of Testosterone
Loss of testosterone can cause a man to feel more and more fatigued, have loss of sex drive, and unwanted weight gain even with working out. It is also the leading cause in Erectile Dysfunction. While Testosterone is the most familiar hormone it is not the only one in the male body. Other hormones like the thyroid hormone, estradiol, cortisol, progesterone, and DHEA can be deficient which can cause joint stiffness, loss of memory, loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone, irritability and much more.
