One of the most common challenges men face as they age is hormonal imbalances. This imbalance can contribute significantly to the advancement of the signs of aging, and can cause loss of skeletal height, lower muscle mass, as well as poor concentration and mental aptitude. Through bioidentical hormone therapy, we can assess which of your hormones are imbalanced and correct this disparity.
Andropause, low testosterone can begin as young as 30 years of age, but older men are more likely to have lower testosterone levels. Decreases in muscle strength and endurance, as well as poor erections, are seen in men with low testosterone levels. Clinical symptoms can be evaluated with questionnaires. When serum testosterone levels are less than 300 ( normal 300-1000) and the clinical picture supports androgen deficiency, the diagnosis can be easily made. There are several routes of testosterone administration from topical creams and gels to weekly or biweekly injections.
