Hormone therapy for men has been a common practice to cope with symptoms of aging for decades.
Male bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may help men feel like themselves again. It may also help men who have always suffered from unbalanced hormones feel like themselves for the first time.
Male hormone replacement may also be able to lower the severity of ailments not directly associated with reproductive symptoms. Such as excessive estrogen production in men can lead to a condition called gynecomastia, or the development of breasts. This frequently happens in men struggling with obesity because estrogen can be produced by fat cells, leading to a cycle of overproduction that can quickly become difficult to break if there isn’t a medical intervention.
A loss of libido is the most commonly reported emotional symptom of hormonal imbalance in men. Trouble thinking clearly, often called "brain fog," is another common symptom. Irritability and mood swings are also frequently cited by patients. Chronic exhaustion, low mood, anxiousness, and mood swings may also be experienced by those with a hormone imbalance.
