 Are you tired of feeling tired?  Lower sex drive?  Losing muscle mass?  Having sleep problems, irritability?  If you are over 40, these feelings and symptoms are completely normal. As you age, you will experience an imbalance of any number of hormones, but your quality of life takes the biggest hit from a drop in testosterone. It’s entirely natural for your testosterone levels to drop by 1-2% per year as you move into your 40’s, and men’s testosterone levels overall are declining globally compared to 50 years ago.

What Are the Symptoms of a Testosterone Deficiency?
  • Fatigue

  • Weight gain

  • Muscle loss

  • Sleep problems

  • Hot flashes and night sweats

  • Lower sex drive

  • Irritability

  • Depression

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Urinary problems

  • Memory loss

  • Gynecomastia (“man boobs”)

    Once you hit middle age, you can expect these symptoms to occur with greater frequency and intensity.

What Are the Risk Factors for Low Testosterone?

Testosterone levels decrease as you age. However, men with chronic illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity are at a higher risk of experiencing a more significant decline. Stress and sedentary lifestyles can also be contributing factors.

How Do I Know If I Have a Testosterone Deficiency? 

A simple lab test can determine whether or not you are testosterone deficient. Male testosterone levels can vary according to age. Your provider will help you understand what’s happening and develop a plan. If testosterone is deficient, part of that plan will likely be Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

What is BHRT for Men?

BHRT restores hormone levels to a balanced state so the body can function at its best. Bioidentical hormones are created in a lab. These hormones are bio-identical to the hormones that are naturally produced by your body. Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are an exact match to your hormone receptors, which means they work better and have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones. Because bio-identical hormones are available by prescription or compounded into customized prescriptions at a compounding pharmacy, your doctor can prescribe a dose that delivers the exact amounts of hormones your body needs to regain balance.  Depo-testosterone (testosterone cypionate) is available as an injection and is also considered bio-identical.

How Are Bio-Identical Hormones Delivered to My Body?

The most popular delivery systems for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy include topical gels, topical creams, tablets, injections, and pellets. Each delivery system has its benefits and actions on the body.

Why Should I Use BHRT for Men?

Studies have shown that BHRT is safe and effective for treating hormone imbalances in both men and women. Men who have used BHRT have experienced the following benefits:

  • Increase in energy

  • Reduction in body fat 

  • Better mood

  • Decrease in anxiety

  • Increase in muscular strength

  • Boost in sexual performance


BHRT has a very positive effect on the overall health of men. Studies suggest that some men who use testosterone replacement therapy to restore testosterone to natural levels reduce their risk of heart attack and stroke. BHRT has also been shown to contribute to better bone density with aging and improved spatial performance in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
