Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for Me?

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for Me?

If you google Hormone Replacement Therapy, most of what you will find is geared towards women and primarily menopause. However, there are many benefits offered from Hormone Replacement Therapy and many of them relate to men.

Facts about Male Hormones

Male hormone levels are at their peak by age 18 and under normal circumstances they stay there until around age 35-40 and then gradually decline. There are certain conditions that can lead to a low hormone level in men:

  • Any chronic medical condition
  • Side effect from medication
  • Drug abuse
  • Obesity
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Infection
  • Hormonal problems
  • Breast development
  • Constipation

Problems Caused by Low Hormone Levels

Low hormone levels in men can also increase the risk of cholesterol problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even stroke. Keeping the hormone levels balanced with HRT will reduce the risk factors.

One of the biggest problems is that hormone replacement therapy for men is still in unchartered waters so many don’t know that help is available for men. Men also lose hormones and while it is mainly testosterone, problems can arise.

Testosterone is not the only hormone in men that can decline. Other hormones that can fall short include cortisol and thyroid. Adrenal fatigue is the result of the adrenal gland not producing enough cortisol. Hypothryoidism is the result of not producing enough thyroid hormones.

Male Menopause

Men, unlike women, lose their hormones much slower and this generally leads to male menopause or more formally, Andropause. Many men just associate the side effects of this as part of aging, stress, or a work overload.

 Men that experience low hormone levels will often experience muscle loss, weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, depression, irritability, memory loss, difficulty urinating, and erectile dysfunction.

Experience Life Again

Replacing the hormones that men lose along with a good fitness and nutrition program usually works well and can restore a man’s self-confidence. In addition, replacing the hormones can also work to restore male health.

 Once men find out that this is a problem that is easily correctable with the right treatment they can’t wait to get started. Men will find they are healthier and happier and full of vigor. So, with the information provided here, does it sound like Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy might be something that you would be interested in?
