There’s a lot of discussion about hormone balancing in women. However, men are just as impacted by the fluctuation of their hormone levels. Soho Men’s Health offers Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to help men experiencing an imbalance in their hormone levels. When our hormones are out of balance, it’s common to have difficulty losing weight. You may also have persistent fatigue, struggle with building or maintaining muscle mass, and experience impaired sexual function.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Improves Your Symptoms
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that hormone levels tend to wane as we get older. Men of all ages may experience hormonal imbalances, but it’s most common in middle-aged men. Testosterone levels enter a sharp period of decline, which can have notable impacts on your health. While testosterone isn’t the only hormone undergoing fluctuation at this time, it is the one that impacts the quality of life and overall health of men most directly. The term for the period of life where men’s testosterone levels decline is known as “andropause,” though it is often referred to as “Male Menopause.”
Men going through andropause often experience the following symptoms:
- Hot Flashes in Men
- Night Sweats in Men
- Lower Sex Drive
- Muscle Loss
- Weight Gain
- Sleep Problems
- Hair Loss
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Urinary Problems
- Memory Loss
If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms that are unexplained, then it’s a good time to reach out to Dr. Kerem Bortecen to consider treatment. The first stage of this process will involve doing some lab tests to determine your current level of hormones. It’s common for many men to attribute these symptoms to stress, but low testosterone is a truly common cause. There’s more to low testosterone than sexual difficulties and struggles with gaining muscle.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the primary approach to restoring testosterone levels in men who are experiencing imbalances. These hormones are sourced from natural origins and formulated to be indistinguishable from natural hormones. The term bioidentical indicates that the exact-match nature of these hormonal treatments limits unwanted side effects and underperformance.
When side effects do occur, they often include:
- Mild fluid retention
- Acne and/or oily skin
- Decreased sperm count
- Decreased testicular size
- Elevated red blood cell count
It’s important to inform Dr. Bortecen if you’ve previously been diagnosed with prostate cancer. In this event, you’ll need the approval of your primary care physician before proceeding with hormone therapy.
Peptide Therapy Initial Consultation: $750
Growth hormone secretagogues (GHS) have recently emerged as a novel alternative to TRT treatment with comparable fat loss and lean mass gain. Sermorelin is a synthetic peptide that stimulates the pituitary gland to increase the natural production of growth hormone. Most men report a noticeable improvement in their energy level, joint and bone health and muscular strength just within few months after starting the treatment.
