HORMONES and LOW T for Men
What is Low T?
Hormonal changes in men are much more common than most men think. Many of the common symptoms that men experience as they age, are related to Low T and other hormone changes. The age related changes in hormones that occur in men are more subtle than the dramatic changes we often see in women going through menopause. If a man is experiencing any of the following symptoms, they could very well be indicators of hormonal imbalance:
- Noticeable signs of more rapid aging
- Changes in work performance
- Diminished athletic abilities or changes in competitive edge
- Increase in number of injuries
- Diminished libido
- Erectile dysfunction or changes in sexual function
- Changes in strength
- Changes in muscle mass
- Cognitive changes
- Inability to remember details
- Decreased motivation
- Energy changes or decreased stamina
- Diminished mental clarity
- Depression or irritability
- Enlargement of the prostate
- Increased weight gain (especially in the mid-region or chest)
Hormonal changes are very common in men and are not just seen in women like many men think. What is important to remember is that the hormonal changes that occur in men can cause significant health problems that can negatively impact quality of life. Many of the problems men experience as they age are related to changes in a number of hormones including testosterone. Decreased levels of testosterone often cause progressive changes in men that many times go ignored or unnoticed. The important thing to remember is that men do not have to accept many of the common health effects of hormonal imbalance as merely the process of getting older.

Bio-identical hormones can help re-balance the key hormones responsible for men's symptoms of aging. Male hormones, including testosterone gradually decline in men as men age, so the earlier you begin to restore your hormones to optimal levels, the sooner you can get back to feeling youthful, energetic, stable and vital again.
