As men age, their testosterone levels naturally start waning—in fact, it has been estimated that nearly 40 percent of men aged 45 and older have clinically low levels of testosterone, or androgen deficiency. Low testosterone levels are responsible for everything from the loss of sexual desire, weaker erections, increased belly fat, and breast enlargement to low muscle mass, low energy, irritability, and depression—all symptoms that no man wants to deal with.
And yet, only a third or fewer of these men actually receive treatment for the condition, according to a 2010 paper published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice.
Part of the reason for the under-treatment of testosterone deficiency may be because testosterone replacement therapy has been historically controversial, with some physicians and patients wary about its potential risks given the lack of long-term studies that establish its safety. Some studies have raised concerns that testosterone replacement therapy may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes, yet other studies show that the low testosterone levels themselves promote cardiovascular risk.
The results of a Kaiser Permanente study recently published in JAMA Internal Medicine may finally put some of the controversy to rest. The study not only found no connection between increased cardiovascular risk and testosterone replacement therapy, it also showed that the men who used testosterone replacement therapy had a 33 percent lower risk of cardiovascular events compared to those who didn’t receive the therapy. Based on these findings, this therapy may actually promote heart health in men.
The study evaluated the medical records of 44,335 male patients with low testosterone between the years of 1999 and 2010. Among these patients, 8,808 men were given testosterone replacement therapy, while the rest were not. The researchers discovered that, during the course of about three and a half years, 10.2 percent of the men who never received testosterone had a heart attack or stroke. In contrast, only 8.2 percent of the men who were receiving testosterone replacement therapy had a heart attack or stroke.
Lead study author T. Craig Cheetham, PharmD, MS, remarked that he hoped these findings would alleviate physician’s concerns about prescribing testosterone therapy to their patients with low testosterone levels. The other benefits of testosterone therapy that are increasingly supported by research include reduced belly fat, more muscle mass, increased libido, less depression, and better sexual stamina. Based on this study, improved cardiovascular health may be an added benefit.
If you’re a male, or you know a male, noticing any of the above-mentioned symptoms of low testosterone, known as androgen deficiency, you don’t have to write them off as normal aspects of aging. Bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy may be a great treatment option for you to bring your testosterone back to robust levels so you can reclaim your quality of life and feel energetic and healthy again.
Physicians within the BodyLogicMD network are specially trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and integrative medicine, and they strive to uncover the root cause of your health conditions and treat the source of your symptoms with advanced hormone and lifestyle treatments customized to each individual patient.
Many think just men deal with impotence, low hormones and other sexual issues, but the reality is women deal with it just as much. Here at Sadhna we can help with hormone replace therapy with shots or creams depending on the levels we find. We take a panel to find out the deficiencies and work slowly toward what the levels should be at your age.
As women get older, they start experiencing the decay of body’s natural ability to produce hormones. Particularly after the age of 35, the decline of natural hormones production is quite common among most women. Symptoms include – anxiety, depression, trouble sleeping, fatigue, vaginal dryness, night sweats, yeast infections, acne, hair loss, acne, memory problems, memory loss, decreased interest in sex, etc.
For a long time, estrogen and progesterone have been prescribed to women undergoing low hormone levels. However, a study done by Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) in 2002, has been widely misconceived by most women leaving them uncertain about taking the treatment. Note that the study by WHI strongly focused the synthetic (non-biologically identical hormones), which have been proven to be unsafe for the women time and again.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a completely natural phenomenon and is free of any potential side-effects. In fact, it is relatively more effective since the hormones are biologically identical (with similar molecular structure and characteristics) to those found in your body.
Physicians at AAAAM (American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine) are specifically trained to provide a personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy vital to your health. In bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRI), we use the hormones that are identical on a molecular level with the endogenous hormones to get your hormone levels back to normal.
