Male Hypogonadism and Testosterone Booster Treatments

Low testosterone (aka Male Hypogonadism) is a common health condition that can cause a variety of unwanted health symptoms. Hormone therapy can be used to help balance testosterone levels, reducing (or eliminating) symptoms

The popular belief is that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a female treatment. In reality, researchers first isolated the testosterone hormone in 1935. Nearly 20 years later, in 1953, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved its first treatment for low testosterone patients. It wasn’t until the 1960s that HRT was used to help postmenopausal women cope with the unwanted side effects of menopause. 

1-in-4 Men Over 30 Have Low Testosterone

It is commonly believed that just 2% of men have Low Testosterone. However, new research conducted by New England Research Institutes in Watertown, Mass. suggests that 1 in every 4 men over 30 has Low Testosterone. Commonly referred to as ‘Low T’ — the unwanted symptoms can range from nagging to debilitating.

Low Testosterone can effect men at any age. Identifying and treating it can help men resume they active, full-filled lifestyle they want.

Low Testosterone Symptoms and Side Effects

Because the common misconception is that hormone imbalances only plague women, men often brush off unwanted symptoms and ‘man up.’ But male hormone imbalances can have a wide range of effects, which left untreated can lead to long-term health concerns. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Decreased sexual performance
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Inability to maintain muscle mass
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Short- and long-term memory loss
  • Irritability 
  • Decreased motivation
  • Prostate cancer

Hire Testosterone Could Signal Lower Mortality Rates

A research study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism compared the mortality rates of men treated with testosterone and those who weren’t. In the study, the mortality rate of men treated for testosterone was 3.4% compared to 5.7% among the men not treated.

Testosterone Helps Maintain & Increase Strength 

The body naturally produces hormones. These hormones are used to send critical messages to organs and tissues throughout the body. Scientists have identified more than 50 different hormones in the male body.

Testosterone is the primary male hormone responsible for regulating sex differentiation, producing male sex characteristics, spermatogenesis, and fertility. It plays a significant role in sex drive, strength, and stamina.

Treating Low Testosterone Naturally

Suffering from Low T doesn’t make a man weak. Hormone imbalances occur with aging. They are completely normal and they are treatable. Natural hormone treatment can help men regain their youth and vitality — while still enjoying the benefit of wisdom gained throughout a lifetime. 

Conventional testosterone treatment often takes a one-size-fits-all approach that uses synthetic hormone replacement therapy. Unfortunately, this mass-treatment approach doesn’t address the underlying cause of the symptoms. Nor does it use a hormone replacement the body will accept.

Premier Integrative’s naturopathic doctors take a personalized approach to hormone replacement therapy. We run a full diagnostic laboratory assessment that allows us to address any additional factors which could be impacting your health. Additionally, we utilize bioidentical hormones to offer fast and natural hormone balancing. 

Bioidentical hormones are created to match your body’s existing hormones, such as testosterone. Because the body doesn’t recognize them as a foreign hormone, it’s much less likely to reject them.
