Bio-identical Hormones for Men
Hormone changes are a natural part of the ageing process. Unlike the more dramatic change that occurs for women during menopause a males hormone changes occur more gradually – over many years.
Hormone production and testosterone bioavailability decline more gradually. Change in sexual function, energy level or mood – tend to be subtle and unnoticed.
Age-related hormone changes in men tend to be termed ‘Andropause’ , other terms may be testosterone deficiency, androgen deficiency and late onset hypogonadism.
Emotional changes, changes in sexual function, physical changes and changes in sleep patterns all indicate a decline in male hormones.
As for women the choice of synthetic or natural hormone therapy replacement is up to the individual but given the correct information and monitoring bio-identical hormone therapy that is individual and not mass produced / tailor made is usually a preferred option for control.
