Men's Health CareHistorically, symptoms like decreased sex drive, lowered competitive drive, lack of energy, decreased muscle mass, and just less enjoyment of life in general in aging men have been simply lumped in as the result of the aging body. However, recent discoveries have linked these changes in men to the body's decreasing ability to produce testosterone as it ages.
Fortunately, the testosterone imbalance that age causes is easily treatable using natural hormone replacement. If you think you may be suffering from a testosterone imbalance, please contact the office of Dr. Gorens to schedule a hormone consultation.
AndropauseFor women, menopause has become a well-known and well-documented issue and women now properly seek treatment for it as it arises. However, in men there is a very similar issue that has only come to light more recently. It's called andropause, and is the result of an imbalance in the body's testosterone levels due to the body's decreased production as it ages.
If you have noticed any of the following symptoms, please contact Dr. Gorens to set up a consultation:
- Decreased Energy Levels
- Decrease in Muscle Tone
- Lower Sex Drive
- Weight Gain, Including "Beer Belly"
- Mood Swings and Irritability
- Enlarged Male Breasts
- Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile DysfunctionBecause of the link between testosterone levels, sex drive, and erectile dysfunction, older men who are experiencing any form of erectile dysfunction should have their testosterone levels checked, and consider natural hormone replacement therapy if their levels are shown to be low.
Often, restoring the body's natural testosterone balance will eliminate or reduce erectile dysfunction, while also increasing sex drive.
