While many people associate hormone imbalances with a problem only women face, that’s simply not the case. In fact, hormones in men often become imbalanced with age. Men’s testosterone levels begin to steadily decline around age 30. Testosterone– a hormone produced by the testicles– is responsible for many vital functions in the
male body, from various sexual functions to muscular development. Unfortunately, declining levels of testosterone often result in a hormonal imbalance for men which can negatively impact their day-to-day lives. Symptoms of male hormonal imbalance include: hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, sexual dysfunction, low energy, mood swings, and many more. Thankfully, there are options available for men suffering from hormonal imbalance. One option, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using pellets, uses a small pellet comprised of customized levels of bio-identical hormones. The pellet, which is inserted every three to six months, is placed just under the skin near the top of the buttocks. Below we will discuss the benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement using pellets.
Many men who suffer from hormonal imbalance have difficulty sleeping at night. This is due to a number of factors, from night sweats to insomnia. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help men sleep more soundly.
Reduced vasomotor symptoms
Hot flashes and night sweats are uncomfortable symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy improves vasomotor symptoms, resulting in an increased comfort level.
Sense of well-being
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can also improve overall mood and depressive symptoms, resulting in less stress and a renewed sense of well-being.
Improved sexual function
Low libido and other forms of sexual dysfunction are often notably improved with hormone replacement therapy.
Men suffering from hormonal imbalance tend to have less energy and greater fatigue than their counterparts. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help restore energy levels.
Many people who suffer from hormonal imbalance report having issues with their memories and often describe their thoughts as foggy or impaired. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help sharpen the mind and improve the memory.
Increased muscle mass
Declining testosterone levels lead to a reduction in muscle mass– and subsequently strength– for men. With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, men can increase their lean muscle mass and gain back their strength.
Better quality of life
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy often leads to a better quality of life for men, who feel stronger, less stressed, and more energetic than they have in years.
