Could I Benefit From Male Hormone Replacement Therapy Pensacola?

A lot of people are very familiar with hormone replacement therapy, or HRT because it is used to manage menopause symptoms in women. But Hormone Replacement is not just for the ladies. Men with low levels of testosterone levels can benefit from HRT as well.

Male Hormonal Imbalance

Men with hormonal imbalances are candidates for HRT. The most common type of hormone imbalance in men is low testosterone (low-T) Pensacola. The condition is also known as testosterone deficiency syndrome (TD) or testosterone insufficiency.
As men reach the age of 40 their testosterone will start to decline, it’s just something that happens naturally with age. In some cases younger men will display low testosteron levels and this is due to hypogonadism, in which the testicles do not produce enough testosterone. Men with low hypogonadism may experience symptoms such as:

Hormone testing performed by an experienced hormone therapy consultant is the only way to confirm that testosterone insufficiency is causing your symptoms. If testing confirms the diagnosis, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you. Testosterone replacement therapy is the most effective treatment for hormonal imbalances like low-T. At Sandy Key Medical we will set you up with a plan and monitor you quarterly with labs.

Male Hormone Therapy Options

Injections were once the standard in hormone replacement, but medical science has advanced and more reliable methods are now available. The most natural and consistent type of male hormone therapy is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy given using a pellet that is given subcutaneously (inserted under the skin). At Sandy Key Medical we will give the patient the option of Injections or Pellets, both will get you where you want to be.

Benefits of Male HRT

While it is not a cure, the goal of HRT is to counteract symptoms and improve the quality of life. Individuals who are prescribed male hormone replacement therapy may experience the following benefits:

More Energy

Fatigue is a standard symptom of low testosterone. Men who get hormone replacement therapy often report that their energy levels increase during treatment. Therapy may also increase the drive to participate in the physical activities the patient stopped due to hormone-related fatigue.

Better Moods

Men with low testosterone often report feelings of depression, anxiety, and irritability. These feelings are more common among men with hypogonadism rather than an age-related decrease in testosterone. Men with hypogonadism who receive HRT report that they have improved mood and a decrease in anxiety and irritability.

Stronger Bones

Testosterone has a big part in keeping your bones strong and healthy. Bone density decreases when testosterone levels drop. Therefore, osteoporosis becomes more prevalent among men as they age and testosterone levels naturally decrease. However, if you have low T for another reason, hormone replacement therapy can help rebuild bone mineral density. Maintaining bone strength can help contribute to an active lifestyle, which in turn contributes to good overall health.

More Muscle

Testosterone helps with the development of muscles, so men with low T often have difficulty building muscle and losing fat. Testosterone replacement therapy can help your body rebuild lean muscles that burn fat and increase energy levels. To build strength along with muscle mass, doctors recommend pairing hormone therapy with strength training and other exercises.

Mental Clarity

Men who have hormonal imbalances often report that they experience a sort of brain fog. Individuals with low testosterone have difficulty with spatial reasoning, memory, mathematical reasoning, and focus. HRT can help restore those abilities and make you feel more like your old self.

Improved Libido

A common symptom of male hormone imbalance is a decrease in libido, especially in cases of hypogonadism. In these cases, HRT may improve sexual desire and treat erectile dysfunction. However, there are other conditions that cause erectile dysfunction. So, before you seek hormone replacement therapy, your doctor should confirm low T is the cause.

How does a female know if she could benefit from bioidentical hormones Pensacola?

If a patient has symptoms of mood swings, vaginal dryness, hot flashes or night sweats that interfere with lifestyle, then she may benefit from them.
Most of the time, checking hormone levels is not necessary to start hormone replacement therapy. If a woman has all of the above symptoms, and her menses have stopped, it is clear she is menopausal.
However, if using compounded bioidentical hormones, salivary testing of hormones is needed to follow hormone levels so the medication can be adjusted properly. At Sandy Key Medical our physicians will go over your labs and detail a plan that is right for you and your body.

How long before she feels the affects?

Usually patients feel improvement in their symptoms within two weeks of starting hormone therapy. It may take up to three full months for the hormones to reach steady-state. We can tweak the dose after that by increasing or decreasing hormones, based on symptoms, to get you more balanced. We run labs every 3 months to make sure your levels are where they need to be and make adjustments as necessary.

Will hormone replacement completely get rid of her symptoms?

Most of the time, yes. Women on hormone replacement therapy tend to have resolution of their hot flashes and night sweats, sleep well, mood improves, and most say that they have a sense of well-being. Many of our HRT Pensacola clients say they have new found energy and have formed an addiction for the gym. Sandy Key Medical will provide a list of gyms and tips on eating right and counting macros, we are here to help you be the best you can be.

At what age should females start hormone replacement therapy Perdido Key?

If you choose to take hormone replacement therapy, ideally you should start hormone replacement therapy when you begin menopause. This will help your menopausal symptoms and help with prevention of osteoporosis. Ideally, a woman should start hormones within 10 years of their last period.
