Men Benefit From Hormone Treatments Too

Men Benefit From Hormone Treatments Too

Testosterone levels usually decline with age, but this crucial hormone can dip sooner for some men. Many men are surprised that testosterone insufficiency affects over 40% of men over 45. Younger men are also affected. Roughly 25% of men aged 30-45 experience abnormally low testosterone. This figure rises dramatically for men above the age of 65.

The benefits of hormone replacement therapy aren't limited to women going through menopause. Men benefit greatly from restoring testosterone balance too! Through his El Centro, California practice, Dr. Prabhdeep Singh specializes in men's health and routinely helps men restore hormonal balance, relieve bothersome symptoms, and feel like themselves again. 

Learn how hormone replacement therapy can boost your health and well-being.

How low testosterone affects how you

No longer associated only with menopausal women, more men are turning to testosterone replacement therapy to restore sinking testosterone. Testosterone is a crucial hormone impacting everything from sleep quality to body fat distribution. 

If you've noticed that you're getting a "spare tire" even though your diet and lifestyle haven't changed, it may be time to evaluate your hormones.

Here are some of the most common signs that you may be living with a testosterone deficiency:

Many men who experience abnormally low testosterone may feel “off” and unable to identify the problem. This makes raising awareness important so that men living with testosterone deficiency can use hormone replacement therapy.

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

BHRT is changing the way men deal with aging and hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormones are sourced from plants and developed to be structurally identical to the natural hormones produced by your body. 

They not only successfully address hormonal imbalances, but because they are indistinguishable from your natural hormones, the body readily utilizes them.

BHRT is more than just a testosterone replacement treatment. Dr. Singh and our team will work with you to balance your hormones, including testosterone, thyroid, and insulin.

Benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy

Men with low testosterone levels can enhance their mineral density through HRT while minimizing bone fractures. Hip fractures kill more older men than women of comparable age. 

Additionally, testosterone increases lean body mass and strength while decreasing fat mass. Many men report improvements in their body composition after treatment with HRT. 

Restoring testosterone balance also protects brain health. Men with higher testosterone levels have a lower risk of Alzheimer's disease. Other benefits include:

What’s more, if testosterone insufficiency is behind your hair loss, you may notice an improvement in hair growth!
