Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men | Woodlands, TX
We can optimize your strength and vitality with Hormone Therapy for Men!
At Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center, we understand that “hormones” and hormone imbalances are not just issues faced by women. Men too can suffer from age-related hormone decline – a condition known as “male menopause” or “andropause.”
Most of the symptoms of andropause are caused by the decline in testosterone as men age. A man’s testosterone level peaks at about the age of 20; after that, it starts a steady decline of 1 to 2% per year. By the time you reach the age of 60, your testosterone level could be almost half of what it was when you were in your 20s!
But testosterone is not the only vital hormone that drops as men age. Men between the ages of 35 and 65 who have low testosterone almost always are also suffering from age-related growth hormone loss.
