Male Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatments in Boston

Hormones play a profound role in our physical health and mental well being. As we age it is common for our bodies to produce less and less of the hormones we produced in our youth. This can affect our bodies and minds in some pretty significant ways. For men, the most common hormonal imbalance is with testosterone. Decreases in this hormone can affect how your body heals, energy levels, metabolism & weight gain, and sexual health. We provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at our offices in Boston and Newton. Read on to learn more about this treatment or contact us to set up a consultation.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men

What Is BHRT?

As the name implies, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, is a hormone replacement treatment that uses natural exogenous hormones that are virtually identical to the hormones our body’s natural produce. These hormones are typically sourced from plants and are injected into the body to offset the decreased production of that specific hormone. 

Why Should I Use BHRT For Low Testosterone?

As a wellness center, our goal is to work with our clients to help combat the signs of aging, both aesthetically and in terms of how our body’s function. Decreased production of testosterone is linked to many different issues for men from weight gain, to decreases in energy, to decreases in sex drive. BHRT treatments can help men feel more like themselves by supplementing that hormone deficiency.

What Is Low Testosterone & What Causes It?

Take The Low Testosterone Quiz

Lower testosterone production affects the body in a few ways. The main categories of how a man’s body is affected are in physical activity & exercise, metabolism & weight gain, sex drive & performance, and mental health. Below are 10 questions about how your health may be affected by lower testosterone. If the answer to 5 or more of these questions is yes, you should consider talking to medical practitioner about hormone replacement therapy. 

A common symptom of decreased testosterone is feeling physically weaker or feeling like you have less endurance when working out or enjoying light to moderate exercise.

Testosterone also plays a large role in our body’s ability to recover after a workout. This hormone encourages the replacement of muscle tissue. If you notice that soreness is sticking around longer than it used to, or it takes a while to recover from an injury, this could be a sign of low testosterone.

Low energy or fatigue are also linked to how our body produces and uses testosterone. If you have noticed a stretch of time where you are experiencing physical and/or mental fatigue, this could be a sign that your body is decreasing its production of testosterone.

Muscle mass and strength can drop when men no longer have the same level of testosterone in their bodies. Conversely, fat can start to build up and the metabolism can start slowing down even without changing your diet or exercise in any meaningful way.

Another common sign that lower testosterone is affecting your metabolism is where you start to put on weight. Men tend to notice an increase in body fat near their chest and stomach when testosterone decreases. 

This is one sign that most men notice first. A decrease in sex drive is directly linked to hormonal imbalance especially in relation to testosterone.

It is important to understand that there are many different factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction. However, hormonal imbalance can play a role in ED. The decrease in sex drive and arousal can be part of ED for many men. 

Again, there are many factors that influence our mental health both internally and externally. But, hormonal imbalance has often been linked to anxiety, depression, irritability, and often leaves men feeling less passionate about even their favorite activities and hobbies. Because hormones help regulate our body, a decrease in testosterone can profoundly impact mental health.

Memory and cognitive function are also influenced by our hormones. As regulators for our mind and body, hormonal imbalance can lead to a decrease in mental function causing issue with memory and focus. 

Another physical symptom of lower testosterone is that hair around the body is starting to thin and fall out. A lot of the hair that is produced during puberty is produced because of the surge of testosterone during that period of a man’s life. As a man ages and those levels drop, hair can begin to thin.
