Bio-identical Hormome Replacement Therapy for MenHormone Replacement Therapy for Men
The Need for Hormone Balance in Men
Symptoms of menopause in women are well studied, but the male equivalent andropause ADAM (androgen deficiency in male) is essentially ignored.
Men suffer needlessly from testosterone deficiency either because hormone deficiency goes unrecognized or the male does not talk about it, especially as it relates to any perceived decline in sexual function.
When men think of diminished testosterone levels, they do not usually relate this to decreased enjoyment of life.
However, men may notice a decline in their competitive drive or decreased enthusiasm for things previously enjoyed due to diminished testosterone levels.
Growing older is hard enough for men without having to needlessly suffer from declines in testosterone hormone levels.
Now for good health news!
“If lack of male hormones causes this state of affairs, then its replacement would have to reverse it” suggests an article in the British Medical Journal Gould in 2000.
Recent medical research shows that replenishing low testosterone deficiencies provided significant improvement in sexual function, libido, mood, increased energy, and general well being for men.
The Benefits of Supplemental Testosterone
In men, testosterone is the hormone that increases libido. Increased libido through proper hormonal balance usually results in an overall greater enjoyment of the sexual experience.
Increased Lean Muscle
Significant increases in the male body’s muscle tone, lean muscle mass, and a rapid recovery from exercise occur as a result of achieving normal testosterone hormone levels in males.
A study authored by Joyce Tenover in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism demonstrated a significant increase in lean muscle mass and body weight (due to increased muscle mass) in 13 healthy males ages 57 to 76 receiving 100-mg weekly injections of testosterone.
Protection for the Heart
Researchers in a study published in Arteriosclerosis and Thrombosis (1994) noted so many correlations between the severity of coronary artery disease and low testosterone levels. They concluded low testosterone levels may be a risk factor for coronary artery disease in men.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) usually eliminates symptoms of hormone imbalance in men through a minor inpatient procedure in which a physician inserts hormone pellets into the male body. Prior to the in-office medical procedure, Dr. Earl will analyze your hormone levels through blood tests.
