Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men: Powerful Science Behind Aging Well
The idea of physical aging can cause apprehension for anyone, but some of the natural aspects of aging particularly affect men. Our goal at FitMed Partners is to help you powerfully and effectively address your concerns, whether they involve your energy level, cardiovascular health, endurance, weight, metabolic rate, athletic performance, or disease risk.
As men age, they lose bioavailable testosterone, the most important of two testosterone forms. (The other form is known as total.) There is much medical literature out in support of raising testosterone levels to optimal (the upper range of normal) levels to provide protection against heart disease, diabetes, loss of bone density and muscle strength, and to raise energy levels, libido, motivation, cognition, and memory. Additionally, testosterone has been shown to decrease cholesterol and to protect the brain against the protein deposits that lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Men lose about 25% of their lean body mass by age 85 and many suffer hip fractures. Testosterone increases bone mineral density and increases lean body mass. Far earlier in life, men in their mid-40s often experience the realization that things that once were easy—a healthy sex drive, and the ease and duration of erection—have taken a significant downturn due to losses in testosterone. This can affect mental outlook as well. Helping men regain a more positive and youthful outlook on life and reducing the risk of age-related disease can take you a long way toward living life better.
Typically between the ages of 40 and 55, men often experience a phase similar to the female menopause, called andropause. Although there is not a definitive signal such as the cessation of the menstrual cycle in women, there is a similar drop in hormone levels (testosterone for men; estrogen for women). This may cause bodily changes and be accompanied by changes in attitudes and moods, fatigue, a loss of energy, sex drive, loss of muscle strength and size, less physical agility, and erectile dysfunction.
