As men age, their stores of androgens called dihydroepiandosterone (DHEA) and testosterone decrease dramatically. The resulting decrease in hormones, called andropause (or “male menopause”), can diminish energy, sexual function, bone and muscle mass and the ability to concentrate. Andropause has also been linked to depression, anxiety, weight gain and atherosclerosis. Human hormone replacement therapy (HHRT) may provide a safe and natural alternative for men experiencing these difficulties. Symptoms may be improved without the side effects and potential dangers of synthetic androgens.
Feel free to contact us to see if hormone replacement is right for you. A personal or telephone consultation with our clinic staff (a nominal fee applies) will start your journey towards hormonal balance. We’ll work with your doctor and you’ll see what a difference personalized therapy can make!
Men, just like women, have symptoms related to diminishing hormone levels, too. Unlike women, when hormone production declines more abruptly, male andropause is marked by a gradual decline in testosterone. Lower testosterone levels, or “low t” as it is commonly referred to, may result in men experiencing a wide range of symptoms including a noticeable, subtle downward shift in strength and energy.
