Current medical research now defines the male equivalent to menopause as andropause. Men, however, experience a more gradual decline in hormone levels than women.
When this decline happens, men often find themselves:
- Lacking in sexual desire
- Gaining weight
- Losing muscle mass
- Feeling sluggish, depressed, and irritable
Most men believe they must endure these body and hormonal changes as part of the natural aging process. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy can restore your hormonal balance, well-being, and physiological state of your 30s. Replenishment of these hormones to physiological levels (optimal but within normal limits and not excessive) has been shown to alleviate these age-related changes. As with all hormone replacement therapies, there are certain risks and possible complications, but without question, the benefits far outweigh these risks.
Andropause is the natural decline in testosterone levels. Approximately 30% of men in their 50s will have levels low enough to cause symptoms.
