When the term “hormonal imbalance” is used, the majority of people tend to think about middle-aged women who may be suffering through the symptoms of menopause. It’s less likely that people imagine men to be dealing with the problems that result from declining hormone levels. Which is why so many suffer in silence. It’s not readily accepted that men should be seeking out treatment for their low testosterone levels. Luckily, thanks in part to medical advances, innovation and promotion of men’s health issues, this hesitancy is rapidly changing. Men whose testosterone levels are declining are likely to suffer from low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, hair loss,fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increased fat levels, thinning bones and other symptoms. Low testosterone levels are designated as those that fall below the normal range of 300-1000 ng/dl according to the US FDA.
Benefits of hormone replacement therapy for men include:
- increased energy
- improved sexual desire and function
- decrease in body fat levels
- thicker skin
- increased strength and muscle mass
- less risk of depression and memory loss
