bioidentical hormones for men
As many people are becoming more aware of what they can do to maintain their overall health, a recent article in the NY Times addressed a topic that’s quickly gaining popularity: testosterone therapy in men. As an integrative medicine and hormone specialist, I have studied hormone therapy and incorporate hormone balancing when working with patients to optimize their health.
I recently read an article in the NY Times that talked about low testosterone in men. They were calling the condition andropause or “male menopause.” While some doctors say that andropause is a real condition that affects the majority of middle-aged men, others claim that it’s simply a myth. Regardless of what whether or not “andropause” exists, what can be done to raise testosterone levels naturally?
More and more men are beginning to realize that many of the symptoms they experience as they get older are in fact the result of an underlying hormonal imbalance, namely andropause – the male menopause. Symptoms of andropause include weight gain, low sex drive, fatigue, hair loss, irritability, erectile dysfunction and impotence.
According to researchers, women aren’t the only ones dealing with menopause – men get it too and it’s called andropause or “the male menopause.” Studies have indicated that men undergo many of the same changes that women experience during menopause. In the men, the hormonal imbalance is typically concerned with declining testosterone levels.
