Men’s Hormones Q & A

Ethos Integrative Medicine

Why should a man consider hormone therapy?

Testosterone, the primary male sex hormone, enables men to build muscle tissue faster than women. It also influences physical strength, libido, and stamina.

Correcting irregular levels of testosterone and other male hormones can help men reduce their risks of heart disease, early death, cancer, and diabetes. Testosterone therapy helps you maintain levels within the normal range and fight the acceleration of the signs of aging.

Low testosterone levels are common in men as they age and are associated with abnormal cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and weight gain – all of which increase a man’s risk of health problems.

What symptoms can suggest a hormone problem in men?

Hormones are chemical messengers that support communication in your bodily systems. When men’s hormones are out of balance, a man may experience notable symptoms. These include:

  • Poor libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Weight gain and difficulty maintaining lean muscle mass
  • Foggy thinking and poor concentration
  • Insomnia and other sleep disruptions
  • Abnormally quick hair loss
  • Breast swelling (gynecomastia)

Hormone problems are not only a women’s issue. Low levels of testosterone can seriously affect a man’s quality of life and health status.

How are hormone issues treated?

At Ethos Integrative Medicine, the medical team works with you to understand your symptoms and devise solutions for overcoming them – or preventing them from developing in the first place. Testosterone replacement offered through patches, injections, or pellets inserted under the skin are options. Your provider determines which type is best for your needs and goals.

What are the benefits of hormone therapy for men?

If you have issues caused by hormone levels, testosterone therapy can help you achieve:

  • Better sexual performance and improved libido
  • Improved mental sharpness and focus
  • Enhanced energy and stamina
  • Fat loss and muscle gain

As a result of these improvements, your confidence and quality of life optimize.
