Testosterone Hormone Treatments
Hormones play a powerful role in your body’s regulatory system. Proper hormonal balance is essential to maintain optimal health. Certain hormones play a crucial role in how you feel. Testosterone, for example, enhances your sex drive, strengthens bone and muscle tissue, and reduces fat production. In addition, it is a natural energy booster that protects against the onset of depression and heart disease. Other hormonal deficiencies or excesses affect sleep, metabolism and the ability to fight disease. Throughout your life, and particularly when you enter middle age, information about your body’s hormone production provides keen insights to help maintain a healthy and vigorous life.
Signs of Andropause (gradual loss of testosterone) are:
- Lower sex drive
- Erectile disfunction
- Memory loss
- Hair loss
- Weight gain
- Sleep problems
Testosterone levels peak in most men during the early to mid-20s. Between the ages of 40 and 70, the hormone-producing cells begin to wear away, causing men to lose nearly 60 percent of peak levels. Key symptoms of testosterone deficiency include depression, fatigue, low sex drive, irritability, hair loss, thinning and wrinkling of the skin, weight gain and weakening of bone and muscle tissue. Eventually, hormone imbalances can set the stage for the development of more serious conditions like heart disease, osteoporosis, pre-diabetes and erectile dysfunction. While many popular medications are available to help sustain an erection, none of these drugs work effectively without adequate testosterone.
