Bioidentical Hormones for Andropause and Low T

Andropause is a period of time when a man begins producing far less testosterone than in his younger days. Testosterone is a vital for hormone important for many bodily processes, so drops in testosterone can produce some pretty severe symptoms. Symptoms of andropause begin to develop in a man’s 40s and 50s, although they can develop at any time.

Causes of Andropause
Testosterone levels naturally begin to decline in men around the age of 30. Testosterone normally declines steadily at a rate of about 1% per year—this is true of both men and women. Because this decline is so small and gradual, most men will not notice any drastic changes and can continue living normally, staying active and enjoying healthy sex lives.
However, there are some factors that can cause additional stress on the body and endocrine system, lowering testosterone levels further and producing symptoms with increased severity. Like any hormone in our bodies, healthy testosterone production relies on a healthy lifestyle, which includes getting adequate sleep each night, exercising throughout the week, consuming a healthy diet and managing stress in a healthy manner.
Because of the on-the-go, always-plugged-in lifestyle that many of us live these days, our bodies often have a hard time keeping up with the demands that we place on them. In conjunction with the natural testosterone decline that we all experience, these added stressors can diminish testosterone levels even further, causing andropause to occur earlier or more severely.

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Andropause and Low T
A Hormone Replacement Therapy program created by Dr. Lock is a treatment option that supplements your body with the hormones that are deficient. Available in many forms, including patches, creams, pills and pellets, Bioidentical Hormones are naturally occurring hormones extracted from sources such as soy or yams that are chemically identical to the hormones produced in your own body. For men suffering with andropause that want to level out their hormone decline and prevent erratic, potentially dangerous fluctuations of testosterone levels, Hormone Replacement Therapy may be just the solution needed.
