When men age, they seem to lose their strength, performance, energy and sexual drive. A decline in hormones is often the most common factor in play with the effects of aging. What if we told you it doesn’t have to be? Hormone replacement therapy can assist in relieving symptoms such as weight gain, muscle loss, fatigue, insomnia and erectile dysfunction just to name a few. Hormone replacement therapy is a rapidly emerging field of medicine that is redefining aging in men. Getting older doesn’t have to mean the end of high-quality life.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Understanding Low Testosterone in Men
The aging process for men starts a lot earlier than most realize, with levels beginning to decrease in a man’s late twenties. Most men don’t notice the effects of the change until middle-age leading to what is known as andropause. This condition of hormone imbalance in men is characterized by a number of distressing symptoms, such as fatigue, muscle loss, increased body fat, sleeplessness, night sweats, irritability, depression and various forms of sexual dysfunction, like low libido and erectile dysfunction.
Low testosterone can affect men’s everyday life and interfere with their overall health, increasing the risk of osteoporosis, diabetes and increased mortality rate. Many studies have shown that maintaining balanced testosterone levels throughout the lifespan improves the quality of life and raises the life expectancy for men.
Additional Hormone Deficiencies That Affect Men
Testosterone is not the only hormone that impacts men’s health, human growth hormone (HGH) plays significant roles in bone strength and density, muscle growth and mass, and even brain function. This hormone starts to decline in men’s twenties and has little to no production by age sixty.
