Male Hormone Therapy Overview

 

Declining Hormones?

Does your mind say yes when your body says no?

You had expected that this period of your life would be different, that you would feel different. You’re left wanting increased muscle mass, faster recovery from workouts, and more energy. You want better sexual performanceweight loss, and overall better vitality. Most of all you want to feel young again. Hormone imbalance may be at the root of the physical and mental issues you are experiencing.

Bioidentical hormones, administered through a physician-prescribed treatment plan, will provide you with the means to end the “wanting” and start the “living”.  With scientific breakthroughs every day, AMI has partnered with the right companies to supply our customers with quality American made bioidentical medication. We believe in proactive healthcare instead of reactive healthcare!

HORMONE DEFICIENCY EXPLAINED

 

Fighting Low T

As men age their testosterone levels decrease, a condition known as low testosterone or Low-T develops. When the testosterone levels begin dropping this is the beginning of a process known as andropause. Some people refer to this as male menopause. When andropause occurs men can experience lower energy levels, loss of muscle mass, decreased libido and poorer sleep to name a few of the symptoms. It has also been found that men with higher levels of testosterone often have a higher quality of living and higher life expectancy.

Studies have also shown men with lower testosterone levels have a much higher risk of developing osteoporosis and diabetes. Sadly, hormone deficiencies often go undetected, leading physicians to treat symptoms like depression, rather than the underlying hormonal problem. These physicians are treating the symptom and not the cause.

Decreasing HGH Levels

Human Growth Hormone often referred to as HGH is another hormone that decreases over time. Human growth hormone is responsible for many important functions such as bone growth, muscle growth and brain functions. When a person hits their mid 20s to early 30s HGH production begins to decline thus affecting the bodies’ abilities to function in these areas. By the time we reach the age of 30, our HGH levels are only about 20 percent of their peak levels during childhood, and after the age of 30, they continue to decline at about 12 to 15 percent per decade and often much more. So at the time when our bodies need HGH for repair, our own production of HGH is at its lowest.
