Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Did you know that low testosterone, also called Low T, affects 4 to 5 million men in the United States? In addition to making you feel sluggish, depleting your libido and causing a loss in lean muscle mass, some severe cases of sudden or significant testosterone deficiency can lead to depression.
Las Vegas Low Testosterone Doctor, Tikva Butler, APRN, ND understands that low testosterone is no small matter. If you believe you are suffering from low T or any other hormone-related condition, you owe it to yourself and your health to learn about Hormone Replacement Therapy for men.
Conditions Treated By Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Hormone Replacement Therapy is used to treat many conditions in men. While many men seek it to treat low testosterone, other conditions that are treated include andropause, hyperthyroidism, hyperthyroidism, adrenal fatigue and fibromyalgia, along with hormone-specific conditions such as estrogen dominance.
Andropause is the result of natural hormone decline over time. After age 30, testosterone production in men’s bodies begins to decline at a rate of roughly 1% per year. After several of years of this natural decline, many of the symptoms of low testosterone seem to appear at once, causing physical and emotional stress.
Some of the Symptoms of Low Testosterone and Andropause:
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Loss of Hair
- Loss of Muscle Mass
- Low Libido
- Mood Changes
- Weight Gain
Natural Hormone Therapy For Men
Whether your hormone deficiency or imbalance is caused by a stressful lifestyle, genetic factors or simply the natural aging process, Hormone Replacement Therapy can help supplement your body with the hormones it needs to return to optimal balance.
Hormone Replacement Therapy uses Bioidentical Hormones to supplement your body with the hormones that it is no longer producing on its own. Bioidentical Hormones are derived naturally from plants such as soy and yams, and they contain the exact chemical structure as the hormones naturally produced by your body. This is in direct opposition to the synthetic hormones used in regular hormone replacement therapy.
Synthetic hormones are not identical to those produced in your body, rather they contain modified chemical structures that allow the drug manufacturers to patent their chemicals. Many men find that Bioidentical Hormones are superior to the synthetic hormones used in regular, non-identical hormone replacement therapy.
