Men’s Health Q & A Nenergy Boost
What is testosterone deficiency?
Although men’s fertility doesn’t come to an end by the same type of permanent menopause that affects women’s fertility, aging men do experience a decline in testosterone, the male hormone associated with muscle strength, bone density, sex drive, and sperm production.
In addition to playing a key role in physical development during puberty, testosterone is largely responsible for helping men maintain muscle mass, facial and body hair, a deeper voice, and a healthy sperm count.
Testosterone levels peak during adolescence and early adulthood and then decline gradually starting at about the age of 30. About 4 in 10 men past the age of 45 have measurably low testosterone levels. Common symptoms include:
- Changes in sexual function
- Sleep disturbances
- Weight gain and slow metabolism
- Decreased muscle and bone mass
- Low energy and mood swings
- Decreased motivation
What is hormone replacement therapy?
HRT is a safe, natural, and effective way to address age-related hormonal imbalances. For men, HRT means taking a testosterone supplement. Testosterone HRT can help you become leaner and more energized; it can also help improve your athletic performance and naturally enhance your libido.
Men who take testosterone typically experience the following benefits:
- Improved body mass index (BMI)
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Improved mood and energy levels
- Increased sex drive
- Improved erectile function
Testosterone is available as a mouth patch, a skin patch, or in the form of a gel that’s spread on your upper arms, shoulders, and abdomen after your shower.
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical HRT is a custom-compounded, natural hormone treatment that’s designed to address your individual needs. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant sources.
Made from all-natural plant sources, bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to your natural hormones. This means that your body can’t distinguish them from its own hormones, allowing them to function optimally and virtually eliminating the risk of side effects.
Conventional HRT, on the other hand, involves the use of synthetic hormones, which are structurally different than your natural hormones. This may be why conventional HRT is more likely to cause unwanted side effects. HRT is available for men as an IM, gel, and implant.
Am I a good candidate for HRT?
If you’re experiencing symptoms of low testosterone, HRT using bioidentical hormones may be an ideal solution. To determine if you’re a good candidate for HRT, Nenergy offers a free consultation with an HRT specialist to discuss your symptoms and overall health history.
Next, your Nenregy HRT specialist will perform a complete physical exam and comprehensive hormone testing to help rule out other conditions and to determine your exact testosterone levels. Finally, you’ll receive a personalized HRT plan designed to help you feel balanced once again.
HRT pricing is contingent on your customized program.
