Hormone health is important for men throughout their lives. Hormones can impact our mental and physical health in numerous ways, acting as a key component to general wellness. But, men’s hormone levels can fluctuate over time, sometimes causing uncomfortable symptoms. At Bionuu in the greater Littleton and Highlands Ranch area, we provide options of hormone replacement therapy for men to help you feel and look your best into older age.
Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men
Symptoms of hormone imbalance in men can start out minor, but may exacerbate over time and start to inhibit your daily routine. The main symptoms of hormone imbalance in men include:
- Trouble sleeping
- Trouble with focus and memory
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Irritability, anxiety, mood swings, and even depression
- Weakened bones (osteoporosis)
- Increased risk for heart disease
- Decreased muscle mass
Low testosterone is the most commonly addressed issue in men but estrogen dominance is also a common problem.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Treatment for Men
Hormone imbalances may occur in men for a variety of reasons. Hormone levels in the body change naturally during puberty and the aging process. There are also various health conditions that can lead to a hormone imbalance, including hypogonadism (low levels of testosterone) and prostate cancer.
Hormone replacement treatment can help offset hormonal changes in men to benefit:
- Mood and overall mental health
- Healthy weight maintenance
- Sexual performances
- Risk for osteoporosis and heart disease
- Energy levels
Methods of Hormone Replacement for Men
Hormone replacement for men comes in many forms. To determine the right option for your needs, talk to your doctor about your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms. At Bionuu, a member or our experienced staff will describe the hormone replacement treatment options that may work best for you.
Creams, gels, oral tablets, and injections are the traditional forms of hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement pellets are an emerging treatment option that provides several unique benefits for patients. Pellets offer superior convenience and effectiveness because there’s no need to remember to take a pill, apply a cream, or change a patch. Additionally, the amount of hormones released into the bloodstream by the pellets is consistent, causing fewer fluctuations that can happen with other hormone treatments.
At Bionuu in Littleton, we provide men’s hormone replacement treatment, including hormone replacement pellets, to our clients. Contact us today to learn how you can benefit from greater hormone health.
