What happens when men experience hormonal imbalances?
Hormones make up the glands that are messengers throughout your body. They indicate when your body is hungry or what emotions you’re feeling. Men and women age differently and have different symptoms of hormone imbalances in their advancing years. While women experience menopause, in men a hormone imbalance such as declining testosterone levels can lead to andropause, causing symptoms like:
- Decreased muscle strength and endurance
- Diminished sex drive
- Decreased mental acuity
- Weight gain
Imbalances of specific male hormones result in these symptoms and more. While low testosterone is a commonly recognized male hormone imbalance, at Vital Wellness & Weight Loss, the team knows that it’s also important to maintain appropriate levels of estrogen, progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and adrenal cortisol.
Finding the right treatment for you can sometimes be a difficult process, but Dr. Eller and Dr. Cavenee are specialists dedicated to diagnosing your imbalance and treating it to restore your overall well-being. Their comprehensive education and experience in the field allow them to customize the exact treatments that your body needs to become balanced.
How is testing done for hormone imbalances?
Hormone imbalances are detected in easy and simple blood or saliva tests. These tests can indicate which hormones are out of balance and Dr. Eller or Dr. Cavenee can then come up with the treatment plan that best addresses your issue.
What are the treatment options for men with a hormone imbalance?
At Vital Wellness & Weight Loss, Dr. Eller and Dr. Cavenee work with patients to achieve a healthy balance of hormones to relieve symptoms, while also supporting good prostate and adrenal health. Dr. Eller or Dr. Cavenee evaluate each patient’s symptoms and hormone test results to provide a custom bioidentical hormone replacement plan designed to bring your hormones back into balance.
The team works with you throughout your treatment program, including your aftercare. It’s important to have follow-up treatment and monitoring so you can maintain your vitality for life.
