Hormone Balance for Men

Many men believe that hormone replacement therapy is designed only for women undergoing menopause, perimenopause, or related hormonal imbalances. In reality,  men also undergo a hormonal decline as they age called Andropause.

Andropause is a progressive decline of free and total testosterone with age, beginning around 30 years of age, which results in physiological and psychological changes with varying degrees of severity.  Symptoms are typically related to low testosterone, but in some cases by high estrogen levels, or a combination of both.
