Male Hormone Imbalance
The Health Need for Hormone Balance in Males
Symptoms of menopause in women are well studied, but the male hormone imbalance equivalent andropause ADAM (androgen deficiency in male) is essentially ignored. Men suffer needlessly from testosterone deficiency either because hormone imbalance 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. 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 2000. Recent medical research shows that replenishing low testosterone deficiencies provided significant improvement in male sexual function and libido, mood, increased energy and general well being for men.
Benefits of Supplemental Testosterone
Renewed Interest in Sex
In talking about mens hormones, testosterone is the hormone that increases sex drive and libido. Increased sex drive through proper hormonal balance usually results in more frequent initiating of sex, prolonged sexual enjoyment and overall greater enjoyment of the sexual experience. As in men, women also experience enhanced sex drive; studies in women have shown it may increase the intensity of the orgasm.
For many men, it is the loss of sexual desire that causes them to seek hormone replacement therapy (HRT). It is their reawakening of interest and desire in sex which is the most appreciated immediate benefit. 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 physicians analyze men's hormone levels through blood tests.
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.
Male Hormone Imbalance Symptoms
Testosterone hormone imblance in men can cause symptoms like decreased enjoyment in life, lack of libido, loss of erectile ability or erectile dysfunction, diminished muscle tone, weight gain, irritability, and sleep loss to name just a few symptoms. All these hormone imbalance symptoms are the result of a hormone deficiency state, not a normal aging process. Restoring the body's normal balance of hormones will go a long way toward making you feel like a stronger, more energized, healthier, and a happier man again. Here is the most important question: How do I know my body has low testosterone and is hormone deficient? The Male Hormone Imbalance Questionnaire is a good start to evaluate your hormone health!
Male Hormone Imbalance Questionnaire
- 1. Do you have a decrease in sex drive?
- 2. Are you lacking energy?
- 3. Is your strength and/or endurance waning?
- 4. Are you physically shorter than you were before?
- 5. Have you noticed a decreased enjoyment of life?
- 6. Are you irritable or sad?
- 7. Are your erections weak?
- 8. Have you noticed weight gain after 35 years of age?
- 9. Are you often fatigued?
- 10. Is your concentration or memory weakening?
If you answered YES to any of the questions above, we recommend you undergo a hormone deficiency evaluation. Please fill out the hormone consultation form below to contact a physician in your area or search our directory for
