Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men in Seattle

Learn About Male Hormone Decline and How Hormone Therapy can Balance Your Hormones

Many men experience hormonal imbalances and deficiencies, particularly as they grow older. Most men don’t know that Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy can offer relief from many hormone related conditions in men. Unfortunately, even a single hormonal deficiency is enough to result in uncomfortable symptoms that can reduce quality of life. Instead of addressing symptoms one at a time, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men addresses the hormonal deficiency or imbalance, providing excellent results for men in Seattle.

Understanding Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones that are designed to have the same chemical structure as human hormones that the body naturally creates on its own. These hormones also create the same physiological responses in humans as well. Bioidentical hormones are not hormones from animals or synthetic ingredients, they are formulated from natural plant based sources and are both chemically and biologically identical to the hormones found within the human body.

Hormone Replacement Therapy and Andropause

While most men are aware that women go through menopause, they may not be aware that men go through a similar stage of hormone decline in life that is known as andropause. Andropause is a condition that is characterized by a drop in testosterone levels within the body. In many cases, andropause affects men who are over the age of 40, although it can begin to affect men who are younger. The loss of testosterone in men can result in many uncomfortable and unwanted symptoms. Some of the common symptoms that men may experience during andropause include:

  • Problems concentrating
  • Decrease in muscle mass and strength
  • Irritability
  • Reduced sexual libido and lack of desire
  • Night sweats and hot flashes
  • Insulin resistance
  • Increased abdominal fat
  • Hair loss
  • Sagging or thinning skin
  • Prostate problems
  • Decreased stamina
  • Insomnia
  • Bone loss
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Not only does andropause bring with it multiple uncomfortable symptoms, decreased levels of testosterone related to andropause may increase the risk of other health problems such as heart disease.

Men who are experiencing the symptoms of andropause can benefit from Natural Hormone Replacement. By balancing hormone levels and eliminating hormonal deficiencies with a customized Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, many of the symptoms of andropause are reversed, allowing men to enjoy a better quality of life once again.

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

While andropause is one of the main reasons that men are treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy, it is not the only beneficial application in men. Thyroid problems are quite common in men, and men that are experiencing thyroid disorders have found symptom relief and restored wellness by achieving optimal hormone levels with a Hormone Replacement Therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may also be used to treat some of the following health problems in men:

  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Type II diabetes
  • Weight gain

  • Erectile dysfunction

Customized Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Every man is different and has different health needs, which is why it’s important that each patient is treated as an individual. Some of the factors that may be used to determine a customize Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy for men include:

  • The severity of the symptoms experienced by the patient
  • The medical history of the patient
  • Current hormone levels, which are tested before treatment

In some cases, men may require more than one hormone to help correct hormonal imbalances and deficiencies. What may be considered a normal hormone level for one does not mean it is the normal level for others. Each person is different with unique biology, which is why Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy for men is customized for each individual’s needs and biochemistry.

Not only are Natural Hormone Replacement Therapies customized for each man, men are also carefully monitored during treatment. In some cases, dosage adjustments or other changes may need to be made mid-therapy in order to get optimal results.
