What Men 35 and Older Should Know About Hormone Deficiency
Many medical service providers focus on treating symptoms of an illness. They prescribe treatments that alleviate the symptoms, but in many cases the root cause of the symptoms is simply a hormone deficiency.
Why treat the symptoms when the true root cause can be eliminated through Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy ( BHRT )?
Many men over the age of 35 feel the effects of aging and don’t know what to do about it.
Aging is a part of life, but feeling low libido, physically drained, anxious, easily irritated, mentally clouded, energy deficient or sleep deprived is neither normal nor healthy for a man wanting to live a healthy, full and vibrant life.
If you have one or more of these symptoms above it may be that you are suffering from a hormone deficiency. Hormone deficiencies are reported with men who show these common symptoms and men who don’t show these most common symptoms.
Among these men are great business and community leaders, fathers and military veterans.. men just like you.
At InShapeMD ®, we specialize in lab testing and treatment programs for testosterone deficiencies in men. InShapeMD ® provides our patients with simple methods that are effective and affordable – helping you to look and feel your best again.
You don’t have to accept low testosterone as a “natural part of getting older.” Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy ( BHRT ) can offer you the feelings of youth, vigor and vitality that all men naturally need and want in order to live a full and happy life.
What is BHRT ?
A bio-identical hormone is an exact replica to hormones naturally produced by your body. Bio-identical hormones and synthetic hormones are both created in labs, yet synthetic hormones are NOT identical to the hormones naturally created by your body. Bio-identical hormones are an exact match to your body’s hormones – molecule by molecule… so it’s a natural fit with your body.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy ( BHRT ) replenishes the hormones your body needs in order to function at a proper and optimal level. Our InShapeMD ® licensed physicians and prescribers are professionally trained and licensed in bio-identical hormone therapy, so every program is individualized based on each patient’s symptoms and biological needs.
Who needs bio-identical hormones?
Men 35 years and older most commonly need BHRT. The reason being, after age 30, a man’s hormone levels decline 1 to 5% each year, causing symptoms such as low libido, decreased energy, unexplained weight gain, difficulty losing weight, carrying weight in the mid-section, lack of clarity, anxiety, depression, irritability, and even a lowered sense of well-being.
Since the decline in hormone levels is gradual, many men commonly do not notice the drastic changes that take place in their mind and body over the years. Studies have shown that men with undiagnosed and untreated conditions of hormone imbalances, especially low testosterone levels, over time have a much higher risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, asthma or COPD – as compared to men with normal hormone levels.
How do you find out if you have a hormone deficiency?
The only way to know if you need bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is through lab testing. We have specific lab panels available at InShapeMD ® to determine whether your hormones are imbalanced. You’ll first need to meet with a wellness consultant for a brief evaluation of your symptoms and medical history. If we think you may have a hormone deficiency, we’ll have a series of blood tests ran to determine your needs biologically. Your initial consultation, lab results, office visit and the starting treatment at InShapeMD ® can take place over the course of approximately one week.
