There is a lot of talk, even among men, of the hormonal changes in women as they age. Yet many people do not realize that many men also suffer from hormone changes later in life. Hormone deficiencies in men can cause a number of symptoms, including erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, hair loss, fatigue, and brain fog. The hormone symphony is just as important for men as it is for women. Here’s how hormones can help you feel your best.
Just like women, men can have an underactive or overactive thyroid. When this hormone is out of balance, it can cause fatigue, weight gain, and even digestive issues. If you have hyperthyroidism, you may find it difficult to gain weight, have too much energy including frequent bouts of insomnia, and have difficult developing muscle mass. If you have any of these symptoms, thyroid replacement with T4, T3 or a combination can help you look and feel much better.
As men age, the level of testosterone produced by the body naturally decreases. For some men, this is not an issue, as they never decrease to levels that affect their physical or sexual health. Yet for many men, testosterone levels can decrease dramatically causing erectile dysfunction, increased risk of heart disease, and loss of density in bones.
There are a lot of ways to compensate for low testosterone in men, but bioidentical hormones are among the safest and most effective. When you visit our offices, we will conduct a thorough examination and assessment to determine how much testosterone your body is producing and how much is needed through bioidentical hormone therapy.
By restoring the hormone symphony, you can look and feel years younger. You will experience more sexual virility, more energy, and increased bone and muscle strength. If you feel that your symptoms may be due to a hormone imbalance, contact our offices today to schedule an appointment.
