HORMONE THERAPY FOR MEN
Low Testosterone and Andropause
Male hormone decline occurs more gradually than female hormone decline but can still create serious imbalances within the body. Most men begin to experience decreasing hormone levels (or the need to address Andropause) beginning in the thirties. After thirty, male hormones decrease by around 10% each decade, and an increased amount of hormones can be lost due to elevated stress levels, poor diet, poor sleep and excessive alcohol intake.
Low testosterone can occur at any point during a man’s life. It signifies the beginning of decline for testosterone as well as other inter-related hormones.
Andropause is the phase during which men experience the most drastic decline in hormone production. It usually occurs during a man’s late forties or fifties. During Andropause, several male hormones can decline, which may include testosterone, DHEA, human growth hormone, pregnenolone, insulin, and melatonin.
MALE MENOPAUSE OR ANDROPAUSE SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Night Sweats in Men
- Low Libido or Sex Drive
- Enlargement of Breast Tissue
- Hot Flashes
- Muscle Loss
- Weight Gain
- Urinary Problems
- Sleep Apnea
- Hair Loss
Most conventional Doctors believe that simply giving testosterone injections addresses the problem. But Dr. Nirvana digs deeper to reveal the underlying cause of the root issue that you are experiencing. Often times, years of chronic stress, poor appetite, lack of sleep and burning the candle at both ends; results in an incredible pathophysiology causing a deep imbalance of male hormones. These imbalances may first start as digestion or stomach problems, lack of sleep, decrease in stamina and motivation, and increase in abdominal weight gain.
Dr. Nirvana can help men determine these clinical imbalances and prescribe the appropriate bio-identical hormone (testosterone) replacement therapy if needed. The individualized Andropause treatment programs are designed to help men increase their quality of life and achieve the best level of health and wellness.
