Men’s Hormone Replacement and Erectile Dysfunction


Men’s health symptoms, like erectile dysfunction, will throw a curve ball into any man’s life. A common symptom for erectile dysfunction is not being able to hold an erection for an extended period of time. Erectile dysfunction can lead to more serious health issues, like heart disease or diabetes, so it’s important for a man to seek options if the problem persists. Erectile dysfunction is an issue that affects many men, and there is no shame in learning about it.

Low testosterone is another health issue prevalent amongst men. Common symptoms of low testosterone include, but are not limited to, a lowered sperm count, a decrease in sexual drive or libido, a propensity for erectile dysfunction, and sometimes enlarged breasts.Low testosterone may be the reason a man rarely feels aroused or excited with his partner.

Fatigue is a diagnosis for feeling weak or tired or consistently lacking energy. Some of these symptoms are the result of an underlying affliction, like heart or lung disease. Men who experience fatigue may also have diabetic conditions, hypothyroidism, or changes in vision. Fatigue is more than just being tired; it is also sometimes a sign of a larger malady at work.

Low muscle mass is often associated with physical inactivity. If a man has low muscle mass than he may be subjected to a higher risk of injury. A clear indication of low muscle mass is showing signs of limited mobility. If a man routinely feels weak after being physically active, then low muscle mass may be a cause of concern.

Abdominal fat is the technical term for a “beer belly.” The fat is located around the abdominal organs, which is basically around the stomach. Metabolic disturbances or heart problems may be symptoms for unhealthy abdominal fat. It is common to gain abdominal fat for men as they grow older.

Erectile dysfunction and low testosterone are medical conditions that should be treated by medical professionals.

HORMONE PELLETS FOR MEN

While women have more symptoms, men can equally benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Men begin to see a decline in their testosterone levels beginning in their 30’s and should be tested in their early to mid-40’s. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, loss of libido, problems achieving and maintaining an erection and a decline in mental acuity.

By sustaining levels of testosterone that would normally be produced through fully functioning testicles, pellet therapy balances the levels naturally, without the drawbacks of a synthetic hormone form.

Whereas traditional forms of therapy produce blood levels that rise up and fall down, inconsistently, creating a roller-coaster effect, pellet therapy provides a much more attuned level to the natural hormone output which helps eliminate mood swings and fatigue. Additionally, pellet therapy includes preventative effects against heart disease, Alzheimer’s, prostate cancer and osteoporosis, as well as other conditions.

Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the most effective process in closely duplicating your body’s natural hormones. Unlike synthetic or traditional hormone therapies that cause your levels to fluctuate, bio-identical pellets insure a more sustained level is released into your blood stream and is a much more convenient method, lasting up to 3 to 4 months.

The implantation is completed in your doctor’s office and your progress is closely monitored to assure the appropriate levels are in place and providing optimal results.

HORMONES AND YOUR HEALTH FOR WOMEN

If you are researching hormone therapy options, chances are you are experiencing changes in your body that result in a number of health problems. Some of these problems can be chronic and lead to other, more serious conditions.

Many of the symptoms first appear during peri-menopause, when estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production decreases; or during menopause while the hormone levels diminish in preparation for the ovaries to permanently shut-down.

These symptoms can include the following:

  • Weight Gain or inability to lose weight
  • Fatigue
  • Hot Flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Memory Loss
  • Depression
  • Mood Swings
  • Insomnia
  • Low Libido

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Hormone imbalances can be corrected. That is the good news. With the overwhelming amount of information on the internet regarding the use of hormones, choosing the most effective and the safest therapy can be confusing. At Prescription Aesthetic and Wellness Spa, we use the most natural method through bio-identical hormone therapy.

Bioidentical, unlike synthetically manufactured hormones, is more closely related to and consistent with the female body. By using bio-identical hormones, women will not only achieve effective results in relieving their symptoms but will also be combating other conditions such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

HORMONE PELLETS
Hormone Pellets are the most convenient and effective hormone replacement, using hormones derived from natural plant sources that replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. The pellets are compounded by a compounding specialist who personalizes the pellets specifically to balance the hormones in your body based on your individualized dose prescribed by your physician.

These pellets are implanted just under the skin and consistently release small doses of hormones to sustain your hormone levels throughout the day. These pellets generally last up to 3 to 4 months, eliminating the need for worrying about applying creams or taking a pill on a daily basis.

HORMONE PELLETS FOR WOMEN
Studies have compared conventional hormone replacement therapy with bio-identical hormone therapy and shown a significant difference in results. Pellets have been much more successful in treating menopausal symptoms by improving energy levels, sex drive and sleep patterns, as well as restoring feelings of youthfulness and decreasing and often eliminating depression, anxiety and mood swings.

Many studies have found that increasing your natural testosterone levels is a highly preventative method against breast cancer, dementia and other life altering and deadly diseases. As a bonus, balancing your hormones and restoring testosterone levels also affects your appearance by increasing the elasticity in your skin, giving you a more youthful glow!
