Hormones for Men

Medicine is just starting to realize that men undergo andropause, just as women undergo menopause. Men have a complex array of sexual, metabolic and stress hormones. These must be in good balance for a man to be his best.

Beginning around the age of 30, a man’s testosterone begins to decline. It is estimated to drop between 1% to 3% per year. With such a slow slide, it’s not always evident on a year-over-year basis. Usually, my patients will notice that they just don’t feel the same as they did a couple of years ago. They’re having trouble losing weight, it takes longer to recover from workouts, they’re energy levels are low, libido isn’t the same, focus at work is off. By correcting sub-optimal levels of testosterone, my patients return to the picture of health they once were.

Of course, it’s not as simple as just testosterone replacement. Testosterone has downstream metabolites that must be monitored. There are other hormones, such as cortisol, insulin, DHEA, thyroid hormone, and growth hormone that must be monitored an corrected.

Cenegenics works because we address the entire hormonal profile and safely balance it to optimum levels.
