Hormonal Imbalance In Men

Hormone balancing in men is essential for overall health and well-being. Hormones play a crucial role in various bodily functions, including metabolism, growth, immune function, and mood regulation. The primary hormones in men include testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, insulin, and thyroid hormones. Balancing these hormones is crucial for maintaining optimal health and preventing various health issues.

Men often accept physical changes as a natural part of the aging process. However, most "aging" symptoms are actually caused by a hormonal imbalance affecting not only testosterone but also cortisol and thyroid levels. While men are more prone to develop male hormone imbalance as they age, other variables contribute as well. Here's all you need to know about this widespread yet underreported condition.

The Role Of Hormones

Hormones control many processes in the human body, including digestion, growth, metabolism, mood, mobility, reproduction, respiration, stress, and tissue function. When your hormones are out of balance, it can impair almost every area of your health and functioning.

Factors Contributing To Male Hormone Imbalance

Male hormone imbalance is undoubtedly influenced by aging. Growth hormone levels in men gradually decline beyond the age of 20. By the age of 40, most males maintain only half of their initial growth hormones, and by the age of 80, it’s down to just 5%. However, this decline can be influenced by other factors such as:

  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor nutrition
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Chronic stress
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Steroids and Opiates
  • Sleep deprivation

Recognizing Symptoms

It is easy to attribute the symptoms of hormone imbalance to other reasons, such as fatigue and overwork, especially at first. However, these symptoms worsen over time until they significantly impact your quality of life. Here are a few examples of the most typical symptoms:

  • Fatigue and lack of energy
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Weight changes
  • Changes in libido
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Hair and skin changes
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Cognitive difficulties

Types Of Male Hormone Imbalance

The majority of male hormone abnormalities fall into one of four categories:

Andropause: The most common kind of male hormonal imbalance, often known as male menopause.

Adrenal Fatigue: Prolonged stress can lead to the adrenal glands producing less cortisol, a stress hormone.

Hypothyroidism: This is a disorder in which the thyroid gland becomes inactive.

Hyperthyroidism: This develops when the thyroid gland becomes hyperactive.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a significant healthcare topic, but many Americans are unaware of how Biote can benefit males. Contrary to common perception, this bioidentical hormone therapy is not exclusive to women; approximately two million men in the United States undergo some form of hormone treatment each year.

What is BHRT?

Biote Certified Providers utilize Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Treatment (BHRT). "Bioidentical" refers to hormones with the same chemical structure as those generated by the human body. Men lacking hormones at consistent levels or with an excess of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT for men.

Most men chose BHRT as a treatment for Andropause, also known as Male Menopause. BHRT for men is a safe option that uses bioidentical hormones to treat low testosterone levels. Doctors often prescribe this treatment for individuals who have experienced a consistent reduction in their testosterone levels. This decline is typical in males starting in their 30s and becomes most prevalent in men in their 40s and 50s. As testosterone levels decrease and hormonal shifts occur, many men may experience both physical and mental changes.

Testosterone is a crucial hormone necessary for developing male sexual traits and strong muscles, as well as the maintenance of healthy red blood cells and bone density. Additionally, testosterone plays a pivotal role in sexual and reproductive performance.

What is BHRT Pellet Therapy?

Hormones in Biote's BHRT method are administered to males in the form of pellets, and patients may experience hormone treatment benefits within two to four weeks. Some report experiencing the full effects after the second injection. Hormone treatment has assisted many men in restoring hormonal balance and boosting testosterone levels.

Pellets consist of hormones and binders that are specially formulated. These hormones are produced in the United States at outsourcing facilities adhering to strict standards. Each pellet undergoes testing for potency, sterility, and endotoxins to ensure high-quality pellet treatment for men, optimizing their hormones.

Pellet treatment addresses various conditions in men, including andropause, mood swings, anxiety, reduced sex drive, diminished bone density, and heart health. The advantages of pellet treatment for men also include symptom reduction and restoration of hormonal balance.

Patients who undergo optimization often report:

  • Increased energy, strength, and weight loss
  • Improved moods, memory, and mental clarity
  • A sense of feeling younger, healthier, and happier
  • Restored libido and improved relationships

What Distinguishes Biote Pellet Therapy from Other Forms of HRT?

If you've looked around, you've undoubtedly seen a variety of options for regaining hormone balance. Injectables, creams, and lotions are readily accessible in the market. How do you decide which strategy is suitable for you?

BHRT, or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, is most similar to the hormones our bodies naturally generate. Biote Pellet Therapy employs hormones, estrogen, and testosterone, that are bio-identical and structurally similar to what your body develops. Estrogen and testosterone are constantly present and processed in the body at varying levels, which decline with age.

After a hormone consultation and a comprehensive review of a blood panel, West Point Aesthetic Center determines the patient's suitability for bioidentical hormone replacement treatment, followed by a prompt follow-up visit for pellet treatment implantation.
