Why Do I Need Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Every man experiences a gradual decline in hormone production as he ages. Beginning at age 30, his body manufactures less and less testosterone, losing 1-2% per year until leveling off somewhere between 40-55 years of age, signaling the onset of Andropause…the male equivalent of Menopause. Symptoms frequently include lack of sexual desire, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, irritability, depression and sluggishness. Testosterone is essential to a man’s well-being… It can literally change your life!
What is HRT?
Hormone Replacement is the restoration of proper hormone levels through the use of hormones that are identical in structure to those naturally produced in the body. ..
Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Recent studies have shown that hormone replacement with synthetic hormones (hormones that are similar to but different in structure that our natural hormones) can lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Research on hormones has shown that these risks are greatly reduced if not eliminated. At InShapeMD® we use only the highest quality hormones, thereby reducing the risk of dangerous biochemical reactions and health problems that can occur with synthetic hormones.
