Hormones play a vital role in men’s bodies. Testosterone is the essential male sex hormone that supports energy levels, bone density, muscle mass, mood, sleep quality, cognitive function, and sex drive. Overtime, the natural aging process can cause hormone levels to become low or imbalanced. When this occurs, it can wreak havoc on the overall function and health of the male body. Although imbalances and low hormone levels are associated with older men, it is not uncommon for Dr. Zormeier to find younger patients in their 20s and 30s who have low testosterone levels. These low hormone levels can negatively impact overall quality of life if left untreated. That is why, it is important to properly diagnose and treat hormone imbalances to feel and function at your best.
Men who have a hormone imbalance can experience uncomfortable symptoms including:
- Decrease in strength
- Less endurance
- Decreased sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Brain fog
- Decreased muscle mass\
- Irregular sleep
- And more
Older men experience andropause as they get older. This can also cause uncomfortable symptoms if left untreated. That is why it is essential to stay up to date with annual exams and monitor your hormone levels early.
Dr. Zormeier takes a comprehensive approach to treating the chemistry within a patient’s body to achieve balance, and begin to produce testosterone naturally again. A combination of supplementation, diet modification, exercise, and other medications can be implemented in order to restore balance. However, bioidentical hormone replacement may also be suggested.
BioIdentical Hormones for Men
Bioidentical hormone replacement is a personalized treatment that utilizes a method of duplicating and restoring hormones that the body is neglecting to produce. This treatment method is effective at restoring healthy levels and alleviating symptoms. BHRT with testosterone for men is very beneficial for improving overall wellness and health. Bioidentical hormones can be administered through pellets, injections, or creams that work to restore balance and stabilize hormone levels for optimal wellness.
