Hormonal balance will keep you at the top of your game.
The production of hormones, particularly testosterone, declines in men as we enter middle age. Testosterone is the trigger for the development of secondary sexual characteristics, and has profound effects throughout the body. Testosterone receptors are found in virtually all body tissues, so testosterone levels affect the function of most organ systems.
This decrease of testosterone triggers an onslaught of other hormonal imbalances that might be mild, but in many cases, can be severe and debilitating.
Some of the problems that can arise from hormonal imbalances include:
The good news is that hormone deficiencies and imbalances are often correctable using hormone replacement therapy. HRT for men is a safe and effective way to combat andropause, also called male menopause, symptoms. Contact us to meet a physician and get started with a HRT consultation today.
What Are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men?
Many men treated with hormone replacement therapy not only experience relief from the distressing symptoms of hormone imbalance, but also appear to gain some protection from other age-related diseases like heart disease and diabetes. Male testosterone is also now recognized as playing an important role in preventing and mitigating depression.
Some of the commonly reported benefits of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) include:
- Maintain reproductive tissues
- Stimulate sperm production
- Protect and control sexual function (decrease risk of ED)
- Increase muscle mass
- Increase strength
- Reduce body fat
- Maintain bone strength
- Decrease risk of heart disease, diabetes, fatigue, depression, and anxiety
Why Do Male Hormones Decline?
As men age, the amount of testosterone available drastically reduces. This change alters the ratio of testosterone and estrogen in the body. Low testosterone levels lead to an increase in abdominal fat, which causes an increase in the supply of aromatase, which produces additional conversion of testosterone into estrogen, which further reduces testosterone and increases the body’s tendency to store fat on the abdomen. All of these compound other hormone-related symptoms of andropause such as fatigue, gynecomastia, and lethargy related to depression.
Alleviate Unpleasant Symptoms of Male Menopause*
Testosterone replacement therapy may provide relief from the unpleasant symptoms of getting older and has additional positive effects as well. According to a study performed by researchers from the Centre for Men’s Health and University College Hospital, men who underwent testosterone therapy experienced drastic relief in male menopause systems such as impaired memory, joint pains, loss of libido and low energy. Some were even reported to have seen blood platelet count rise.

Is HRT Right For Me?
At Global Life Rejuvenation, we are thorough experts and believe that comprehensive testing, along with a careful physical examination, is the first step in detecting hormonal imbalances in men. We recognize that each patient is unique, and it’s important to remember that levels of all important hormones vary widely between individuals. In short, we do not have a single threshold for treatment, we look at levels and analyze them on a case-by-case basis.
We encourage you to contact Global Life Rejuvenation and learn more about hormone replacement therapy for men, and how it can change your life for the better.
Is HRT Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, we never replace someone’s hormone level to what they had when they were younger. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to alleviate symptoms and make people feel better.
HRT is completely safe if taken for the right reasons and under the guidance of a regular practitioner. You may have heard of archaic studies saying that HRT increased the risk of heart disease, cancer, or other maladies. These studies were mishandled and were proven false and in many cases, HRT improved cardiovascular health.
