Most Common Issues Brought on by Hormonal Changes
Many men don’t know that they can be helped by anti-aging hormone replacement therapy. The main reason is they don’t realize how their body is changing and that they can reverse some of the symptoms.
There are numerous complaints that are directly related to a decrease in a man’s hormone and testosterone levels. Some of the most common are fatigue, loss or thinning hair, loss of muscle mass, wrinkled or loose skin, loss of muscle mass and strength, increased body fat, and decreased bone density. Many people experience changes in their sexual function, as well. These issues include but are not limited to erectile dysfunction, difficulty sleeping, and loss of interest in sex. Having a healthy sex life is an essential component to happiness and well being, and patients who are suffering from challenges in this area should seek treatment to restore healthy sexual function.
There’s Help for Dropping Hormone Levels in Men
Hormone levels naturally decline over the course of a person’s life. That said, just because the process is natural does not mean that there are not steps that can be taken to reverse hormonal decline. By embarking on a system of anti-aging/hormone replacement therapy, patients can regain function in many areas of their lives, and can also enjoy a more youthful appearance. The first step lies in having one’s hormone levels tested to determine if there is a need for medical intervention. If so, Dr. Charkawi will create a treatment plan that can provide the appropriate levels of testosterone, progesterone or estrogen.
Anti-Aging Hormone Replacement Therapy Has Additional Benefits
Research has shown that there are various benefits associated with hormone replacement therapy. One of the most impactful is an improvement in sleep quality. More rest translates into more energy throughout the day, and also supports the body’s natural ability to heal. Hormone replacement therapy can also provide help with mood changes that are brought on by declining hormone levels. There are signs that patients who begin hormone replacement therapy experience improvement in depressive symptoms. This is an important issue to address, and Dr. Charkawi, who provides hormone replacement therapy, can help patients determine whether counseling or other forms of therapy might also be an appropriate treatment approach.
