Should you consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy?

Although this was once thought to be more common in older generations, many young men in their twenties suffer from low testosterone levels. Leading a sedentary lifestyle, high-stress work environments, and other factors all contribute to lower rates of hormones which can lead to weight gain, memory decline, fatigue, and muscle loss - some of the most commonly known symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

What are some common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men?

Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men include:

  • Loss of libido
  • Reduced mental focus & energy levels
  • Diminished muscle mass & joint pain
  • Increased irritability & depression
  • Reduced sexual performance

How does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) treatment work?

You will receive hormone replacement pellets every five to six months, depending on your body's needs and our medical team's recommendations. Within two weeks of receiving the pellet, you should achieve optimal hormone levels. Follow-up appointments with Dr. Hostetter are scheduled to check that your treatment plan is going well and that you're experiencing the desired results.

How is bioidentical hormone replacement different from other types of hormone replacements?

Bioidentical hormones are compounded from naturally occurring sources and are designed to be structurally indistinguishable from endogenous human hormones. The term “bioidentical” refers to the exact-match replication that can be credited for the reduced number of side effects and risks patients experience, as well as the effectiveness of the treatment.

Am I a good candidate for bio-identical hormone replacement?

Men experiencing hormonal imbalance often write off the symptoms as a natural part of growing older. However, men as young as 30 can start to experience hormone issues. The telltale signs may suddenly crop up or accumulate slowly over time. If you’re experiencing weight gain, depression, sexual dysfunction, irregular sleep patterns, or fatigue, it might be time to seek help and investigate bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
