Hormonal Imbalances in Men
Men can notice alterations in their hormones in their late 20s through their 80s. The change in males tends to be more gradual compared to females and therefore they are written off to too much stress or just getting older. High stress can dramatically alter testosterone levels and lead to higher estrogen levels making a guy not feel like themselves. The major symptoms guys notice is less drive, less energy, changes in libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), more body fat, less muscle and becoming crankier.
Testosterone can be used as a cream, self-administered subcutaneous injection and pellets. The creams can lead to more estrogen production which is often not ideal as it can worsen the symptoms we are trying to correct. Both self-administered subcutaneous injections and pellet forms give excellent results. Some men (or their significant others) will notice the ups and downs of the hormone level with testosterone injections which is why many choose to use testosterone pellets.
Estrogen is the hardest hormone to get dialed in for a man. Unlike testosterone where being in the upper part of the reference range is generally ideal; estrogen must be more tailored for the man as some do better at the lower range and some at the upper range. If estrogen is not properly balanced, the benefits of testosterone may not be realized.
