Hormone Therapy for Men With Bioidentical Hormones
Hormone therapy for men? That’s not something you often hear about. In women most everyone knows about their menopause. But most people don’t know that a large percentage of men also have the equivalent of menopause; it is called andropause (some people refer to it as Male Menopause or MANopause) and in many cases its symptoms can be as troubling and dramatic as those in women.
The Impact of Low Testosterone
As men age, they tend to suffer from energy loss, difficulty keeping off weight, and sexual impotency. Low testosterone is often the culprit behind these problems. By the age of 30, most men’s testosterone production levels have already started to decline significantly. This is due to the fact that men typically lose 1-2% of their testosterone each year starting in their mid-20s. By the time males reach the age of 40, almost half of their growth hormones are usually depleted. This can lead to a condition that goes by the name of andropause, hypogonadism, or Low T—exactly what we treat through our testosterone therapy at PrimeBody.

Hormone Replacement Therapy with Bioidentical Hormones
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT uses supplemental doses of hormones to replace deficiencies of natural body hormones with synthetic hormones that have identical chemical structure to the natural ones and are easily utilized. Bioidentical hormones are also micronized to ensure the body absorbs as much of the dose as possible.
The amount of bioidentical hormones one should take is individually established by a certified physician who takes into account patient’s medical history and current health conditions associated with hormonal imbalance. Tests have to be performed to correctly evaluate current hormone levels.
Hormone Deficiency and Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many people experience discomfort related to aging as this is when hormones get released in lesser quantities or their production is stopped altogether. Many therapies work only with the effects of aging, oft)en ignoring the real cause and its solution.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) works with the cause of aging symptoms by restoring the amount of hormones to a more optimal level, counteracting the negative effects of hormonal deficiency.
