Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Men

Men are in no way immune to midlife changes. Andropause, the male menopause, is a result of hormonal changes that can have profound effects on physical health and well-being in men, particularly on mood and libido, and energy level. Some telltale signs include:

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Poor erection
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Depressed mood
  • Aches and pains in the joints
  • Dry skin
  • Osteoporosis
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss/baldness

Heart disease, high blood pressure, decreased good (HDL) cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and prostate health are all related to hormonal changes. To a surprising degree, many of these conditions reverse themselves when a proper balancing of the hormones in the body is achieved and combined with sensible diet and exercise. We will help you identify the symptoms and patterns of male menopause, and work with you to create an individual treatment plan. We’ll help you chose the best method of hormone replacement, if you eventually require one, and achieve the hormone level that’s right for you.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body. Bioidentical hormones are based on compounds found in plants like yams or soy beans. The plant-based hormone is processed in such a way that its structure is identical to hormones produced naturally by your body. This is why bioidentical hormones are termed “natural” and our bodies can metabolize them. These hormones come in various forms including tablets, under the skin pellets, creams, gels, and nasal sprays.

 

Bioidentical hormones are produced by a highly-trained pharmacist called a “compounding pharmacist.” Compounding pharmacist will mix drugs to fit the unique needs of the patient, and to obtain the exact dose needed. Compounding pharmacies are licensed and regulated by state just like regular pharmacies.

Why not Synthetic Hormones?

Synthetic hormones are not identical to the hormones your body uses and can act as toxins since their chemical makeup is at odds with your body system. Adverse side effects often are worse than the symptoms for which the cure was introduced.
