Male hair loss is closely related to a decline in testosterone that starts after the age of 30. Additionally, hormone imbalances associated with stress and poor nutrition can diminish the body’s ability to grow hair and may hinder regeneration of the hair follicles.
Hair loss can be distressing and may affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy for men can treat hormonal imbalances that lead to male hair loss. HRT treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate hair loss at its source.
If low levels of testosterone are the cause of your hair loss, hormone replacement therapy may be the solution for you. Global Life Rejuvenation physicians have successfully used HRT to help men prevent hair loss and may even help regain hair already lost. Contact us to meet a physician and get started today.
The Role of Hormones in Hair Loss
Hair loss in men is usually related to a derivative of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Excess DHT causes hair follicles to reduce their production of hair and eventually causes the follicles to die.
Hair located at the front and crown of the head is more sensitive to DHT and, over time, grows more slowly, eventually ceasing growth altogether. Genetic factors can also cause hair follicles in these zones to become sensitive to high levels of the DHT hormone.
As with most hormone imbalances, DHT levels are closely related to other hormone imbalances associated with andropause. Constant stress can cause the adrenal glands to become overactive due to the body’s increased demand for cortisol, often referred to as the “stress hormone”. This can occur at low levels of stress, but is more common at high levels of stress. When adrenal glands are overactive, the body may produce higher levels of testosterone, which may result in an increase in DHT. This is often what causes hair loss or baldness in men.
Hormone Replacement Therapy, a Hair Loss Cure
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has proven to be one of the most effective remedies for hair loss in men. Before treatment, Global Life Rejuvenation physicians test DHT, testosterone, cortisol and thyroid hormone levels. If hormone levels are found to be unbalanced, HRT for men may be an effective treatment for male hair loss. If nutritional issues are also identified, HRT, coupled with a fitness routine, a proper diet, and supplement programs may be recommended.
While you cannot alter your genes, you can alter the effects unbalanced hormones have on aging. Hormone replacement therapy with Global Life Rejuvenation physicians offers a hair loss cure that not only prevents or stops hair loss, but may also reverse hair loss that you have already experienced.
Is HRT for Men Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, the goal of this treatment is not to replace someone’s hormone level to what they once had. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to supplement or to help your body naturally produce hormones that it no longer makes as a result of aging. By doing this, we alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalance and help you feel better.
HRT is completely safe when taken under the guidance of an expert practitioner. Among men, HRT has been proven to help prevent cardiovascular risks and type 2 diabetes. We don’t want anyone to suffer from unnecessary hair loss when there’s a treatment option available.
