Hormone Pellet Therapy for Andropause in Elgin, IL
You may have heard of menopause, the end of a woman's menstrual cycle that leads to many difficult symptoms. But have you heard of andropause? This condition, often associated with low testosterone, is very real. Andropause directly leads to reduced quality of life and a host of troubling symptoms. This condition primarily affects men over age 50, but it can occur earlier in certain circumstances. Thankfully, andropause can be treated with hormone pellet therapy.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Andropause?
Andropause is sometimes referred to as “manopause” because it is the male equivalent of menopause. Andropause is actually a form of low testosterone. As a man ages, his body gradually produces less testosterone. Low testosterone may also be caused by conditions that affect the testicles, like testicular cancer.
This testosterone imbalance leads to problems such as:
- Low sex drive
- Muscle loss
- Weight gain
- Extreme fatigue
- Lack of focus
- Bone loss
- Joint pain
Studies have shown andropause has also been associated with increased risk of prostate cancer and early heart disease. Low testosterone is common in men with diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and other chronic diseases. Hormone pellet therapy for andropause is a safe, effective treatment method for low testosterone.
