Benefits of Testosterone Replacement for Men
As men age, the hormones in their bodies naturally slow in production and become unbalanced. Most notably, this occurs with the hormone testosterone. Beginning after the age of 30, the male body slowly produces less and less testosterone. Over the course of many years, this reduction in testosterone production can result in unwanted symptoms of low testosterone, or Low-T. This decline of testosterone in men is known as andropause or hypogonadism. Although testosterone is the more well-known of the male hormones, the hormones estrogen, progesterone, thyroid and DHEA play important roles in men’s physical and mental well being as well.
Lubbock Texas Hormone Therapy Doctor Juan Fitz, M.D. will examine levels of all of your hormones, not just your testosterone levels, to find imbalances and to address the root cause of your symptoms. Dr. Fitz can create customized solutions that provide specific amounts of needed hormones to bring men back to a state of youthful vitality and strength. Dr. Fitz has, himself, overcome a hormone imbalance with the help of Hormone Therapy and is pleased to help other men in the Lubbock County and Northwest Texas-area balance their hormone levels.
Some of the Symptoms of Imbalanced Hormones in Men:
- Decreased Ability to Build Muscle
Low levels of DHEA and testosterone make maintaining and building muscle mass difficult to impossible. By bringing these hormones back up to their normal levels you will see a noticeable change in the effectiveness of your workouts.
- Erectile Dysfunction
Having low testosterone can affect sexual desire and function. By addressing this hormonal deficiency with Hormone Therapy, you can restore your libido, performance and confidence.
- Feeling of Anger and Irritability
High levels of the stress hormone cortisol and low levels of testosterone can cause you to feel angry and irritated for no apparent reason. By bringing these hormones back into balance, your moods will become more balanced as well.
- Loss of Bone Density
Deficient levels of testosterone and estrogen in men can result in increasingly weakening bones. Making sure that your hormones are at their correct levels can prevent diseases like osteoporosis.
- Low Energy
Low production of the thyroid hormone and low-T can both result in low energy as well as physical and mental exhaustion. Low levels of these hormones can also cause insomnia, compounding feelings of fatigue. Hormone Therapy can help address these symptoms.
- Male Pattern Baldness
High levels of stress, low testosterone and thyroid imbalance are red flags for hair loss. Hormone Therapy are an effective way to treat thinning hair and prevent further hair loss.
