Regrettably, the effects of aging start to become noticeable when your body isn’t producing enough hormones. Your body’s hormone production begins to slow down in your 30s. One of the first signs of decreased hormones or testosterone deficiency is decreased libido, lack of energy, mood swings and reduced muscle tone. Zack Charkawi, MD, at the Men’s Health Atlanta employs male hormone therapy to treat testosterone deficiencies.
Male Hormone Therapy
Men experience a type of menopause called andropause, which features a loss of hormones that is more gradual than that of women. Andropause is a hormone imbalance that has an array of symptoms that include:
- Hair Loss
- Muscle loss
- Weight gain
- Sleep issues
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Memory loss
- Urinary issues
- Easily irritated
- Decreased sex drive
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
- Increased size in breasts (gynecomastia)
However, many specialists agree that most of the andropause symptoms can be curtailed or eliminated through male hormone therapy. In fact, many claim that male hormone therapy is one of the best ways to treat hormone imbalances. Indeed, restoring hormones to a more natural level can reawaken youthful energy and transform the body back to a functioning state.
Male hormone therapy is renowned for the numerous benefits offered to men who have a hormone imbalance:
- Increases testosterone levels
- Enhances longevity and fights cancer when used with melatonin
- Replaces essential hormones produced by the thyroid to improve reflexes, reduce fatigue, encourage weight loss and promote healthy skin
- Improves production of white blood cells to prevent diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and lupus
