Bioidentical Hormones for Men
Andropause or male menopause can begin to affect men in their early 40’s. In much the same way as a woman loses estrogen, men begin to lose testosterone as they age. This can cause a variety of issues that can affect a man’s quality of life. A few of the symptoms of male menopause are a lack of sex drive, fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle, night sweats, urinary inconsistency, and memory loss. Bioidentical hormones for men can restore hormonal balance and minimize many of the symptoms associated with male menopause. They are extremely beneficial when the loss of normal levels of testosterone begin to affect a man’s overall general health.
Bioidentical hormones for men can reverse many of the signs of male menopause. As a man ages and his levels of testosterone begin to drop, he can lose muscle tone and begin to gain weight. He may also experience extreme fatigue, hair loss, depression, and erectile dysfunction. Over time the loss of libido, weight gain, and the inability to perform sexually can cause depression. If this continues, the man’s general health can begin to deteriorate. Excess weight gain can lead to circulatory problems, high blood pressure,
and other cardiovascular problems. Replacing testosterone with bioidentical hormones helps to restore balance in the body and minimize weight gain and fatigue.
Bioidentical hormones are structurally identical to natural hormones and offer the same physiological benefits. Bioidentical testosterone works in exactly the same way as the natural hormones the body produces. By using bioidentical hormones for men, the natural hormone balance is restored and normal physiological function is restored within the body. When bioidentical hormones are produced, they are formulated to be as close to a man’s normal hormone production as possible. When bioidentical hormones for men are prescribed, the doctor performs a complete physical examination to determine what amount of hormones is needed to bring the body back into balance.
Bio identical Hormones for Women
Bioidentical hormones for women have the exact same structure as their natural counterparts. A bioidentical hormone mixture is often formulated according to the patient’s exact needs. Every woman’s specific hormone levels will be determined by their genetic makeup, their environment, and their overall health. As they enter menopause and their estrogen levels begin to drop, the need for hormone replacement therapy may increase. With the use of bioidentical hormones, women have fewer side effects while their hormone levels are gently brought back into balance. It also allows them to live a more normal life, full of energy and good spirits.
Bioidentical hormones for women are structurally the same as natural hormones. They have the exact same components and are designed to work in exactly the same way as hormones that are drawn from natural sources. Because they are structurally the same, the body can utilize them quickly and efficiently. Bioidentical hormones can be formulated according to the patient’s exact needs, allowing them to use only what is needed to bring the body back into balance. When a woman enters menopause and her estrogen levels begin to drop, bioidentical hormones for women are able to quickly and efficiently reverse the effects of decreased estrogen and gradually begin to restore balance and vitality.
Bioidentical hormones for women are often recommended when they enter menopause and begin to experience many of the symptoms, including hot flashes, headaches, memory loss, weight gain, and lack of sex drive. Bioidentical hormones for women may also be prescribed after a woman has a hysterectomy or other reproductive health issue that begins to affect her regular ability to produce hormones like estrogen and progesterone. In instances where the woman’s reproductive health has changed, the need for bioidentical hormones may increase dramatically. In order for her to remain
active sexually and enjoy the experience, replacing the hormones that are lost allows her to maintain her physical reproductive health.
