Hormone Imbalance in Men?

Hormone imbalance doesn’t just affect women, men are often affected as well. Unlike women who typically start to experience hormonal imbalance due to menopause, men can experience low hormonal changes at any age. This is because of declining levels of growth hormones within the body.

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms of male hormone imbalances develop gradually overtime. In fact, they can develop so gradually that you may not even notice them, until they have already taken hold. Some of the most common symptoms of hormone imbalance are:

  • Mood swings/ irritability
  • Memory loss
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle loss/weakness
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Increased body fat
  • Heart palpitations

These are just a few of the symptoms that can occur because of male hormone imbalance. However, there are many more symptoms that can take place, which are a precursor to low hormonal levels among men.


What causes hormone imbalance in men? 

After a man turns 20, he begins to experience a drop in male growth hormones-which include testosterone. These hormones begin to fall about 14{045f5bc0d8a1f228d347d57dfe34674cfc40bca44f06f79876598b631c0a86e2} every 10 years; by the age of 40 is has dropped to at least 50{045f5bc0d8a1f228d347d57dfe34674cfc40bca44f06f79876598b631c0a86e2} and keeps declining. But, this does not mean that just men in their 40’s experience hormonal imbalances, men of various ages can experience hormonal imbalances. The cause of this could be for various reasons, for example:

  • Andropause: A male menopause, due to declining testosterone levels
  • Adrenal failure: Caused by high stress levels and low Cortisol
  • Hypothyroidism: Underactive thyroid gland, and thyroid hormones
  • Hyperthyroidism: Overactive thyroid gland, overproduction of thyroid hormones and an increased metabolism.


How do you treat hormone imbalance?

One of the ways that we can treat hormone imbalance among men is through hormone therapy. At 4Ever Young, we use hormone replacement therapy (or HRT) to help with declining hormone levels in males that can cause a variety of issues. Because hormone imbalance is caused by low testosterone, we use testosterone replacement therapy to restore balance within the body. This is offered in many different forms depending on what treatment would work best for you:

  • Intramuscular injections: administered once a week
  • Testosterone pellet insertion: administered every 4-6 months
  • Topical testosterone gels: applied daily to the wrist, inner arms or the abdomen

Each of these ways ensures that testosterone gets back into the body and hormone balance is restored. Allowing men to get back to their normal selves and feeling great.

Why choose hormone replacement therapy?

HRT works best because it is natural, safe, and effective. It doesn’t introduce any foreign chemicals or substances into the body and pose no real side effects. In fact, the benefits of hormone replacement therapy speak for themselves. These benefits include:

  • shutterstock_246751435Improved sexual desire

  • Stabilized moods
  • Improved blood cholesterol levels
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Boosted energy levels
  • Reduced body fat
  • Increased bone density
  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Increased lean body mass

And these are just a few of the benefits that are listed after undergoing this treatment.
