The topic of bio-identical hormone replacement is very popular among women because as they approach menopause, the estrogen and progesterone levels go down dramatically, and they have quite a lot of symptoms associated with that. So, hormone replacement for women is a standard thing at menopause.
It’s starting to become considerably more well recognized for men because of the condition known as andropause, where there are declining levels of testosterone and other hormones. The types of things that men would notice would be not perhaps quite as dramatic as the types of things that women notice at menopause. Things like gradually declining energy, gradually declining muscle strength, a little bit of increasing abdominal weight, a little bit less ambition, drive, and motivation, a little bit less stamina, and of course, a little bit of declining erection performance. These are all the reasons why men would come to me asking for an evaluation of their hormone levels.
Invariably, this spectrum of symptoms improves when we top up the testosterone to the more youthful end of the spectrum. Men feel markedly younger, more vigorous, productive, and even more confident.
So, addressing hormones for men is very important as we age. Keep in mind that nothing good is happening in your body as these hormone levels decline, and certainly, we would want to prevent you from becoming decrepit and frail. So please contact the office if you are concerned about any of the symptoms we talked about today.
