Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Men

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

As men age, there are a wide array of health issues they face. These include loss of muscle mass and strength, decreased bone density, slow recovery from injury, decreased sexual function and desire, and mood changes. Also, levels of various hormones in the body decrease significantly. It is believed that replenishing youthful levels of certain hormones might help address all of these concerns. Fortunately, recent advances in research have shown that hormone replacement therapy can treat a number of health issues not only those related to aging, but also certain diseases that may be acquired at some point in life. Hormone replacement therapy is a rapidly emerging field of medicine that is focused on relieving and treating symptoms associated with aging for patients to live a high quality and virile life.

Men don’t have to live with testosterone and HGH imbalance, nor does any man need to continue suffering from the debilitating symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. With hormone replacement therapy, diet and lifestyle modifications, one can safely and effectively reduce the outcomes associated with the natural process of aging.

Understanding Low Levels of Testosterone in Men

The hormone testosterone is responsible for many physical changes in men during the puberty period such as deepening of the voice, and growth of the muscles, pubic and body hair, penis and testes. It also functions to make sperm for men to be able to have children. Aside from physical changes, testosterone also plays a significant role in fat distribution, red blood cell production and maintaining bone density. The levels of testosterone vary from hour to hour and are highest in the morning and lowest at night.

As men approach their late twenties, the levels of testosterone in the body start to decline at a slow and steady rate. From the age of 30 onwards, the decline in the levels of testosterone continues by 1% per year. This decline becomes more evident when some men experience “male menopause” or medically known as “andropause”. This condition is characterized by male hormonal imbalance that yields to a number of distressing symptoms such as extreme fatigue, loss of muscle mass and strength, increased body fat, sleep deprivation, night sweats, agitation, confusion, irritability, depression, loss of sexual desire and function, and decrease in the sense of well-being as well as quality of life.

Men with low testosterone levels are at greater risk for various diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, erectile dysfunction, psychiatric disorders, metabolic syndrome, heart diseases and stroke – all of these increases men’s mortality rate. Research has shown that maintaining normal testosterone levels throughout the lifespan is beneficial in improving one’s quality of life and life expectancy.

Other Hormone Deficiencies in Men

Another hormone that has a significant impact in the health and quality of life of men is human growth hormone (HGH). HGH or also known as somatotropin, is a substance made of amino acids that stimulates muscle and bone growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration. It also plays a major role in increasing muscle mass and bone density, sugar and fat metabolism, regulating body fluids, and maintaining the health of all human tissue. The level of HGH peaks late in adolescence and begins to decline with age. Most men above 60 years of age have little to no production of HGH.
