Male Andropause - Testosterone Declines with age: Bio-identical Testosterone Hormone Replacement

ANDROPAUSE– Male Menopause?

  Just as women experience symptoms of menopause, men also go through a  “male menopause” known as ANDROPAUSE (Irritable Male Syndrome).  But  unlike women whose hormone levels drop suddenly around age 50, men’s  testosterone levels gradually start declining as early as age 20.  

Testosterone decreases by 1% a year after age 30 --Male Andropause   Low-T Testosterone Replacement

What Causes Low Testosterone?

  Once men enter their thirties, their body’s level of testosterone  decreases at a rate of nearly 1% per year. This normal occurrence of  decreasing testosterone is referred to as “Andropause.” Additional  factors that may lead to decreasing testosterone levels include obesity,  some medications, chronic health issues, alcohol abuse, and stress.

What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) typically involves the  administration of testosterone, either by injection or by use of  testosterone skin creams or gels. 


Testosterone is the hormone in men  responsible for the development of male reproductive tissues, sexual  characteristics and function, bone and muscle mass, providing a sense of  wellness and virility. It also helps promote ideal levels of sperm  production and protects against bone loss and heart disease.


Bio-identical therapeutic Testosterone  replacement therapy will help you feel stronger and healthier, increase  your energy and motivation, perform better at work improving your  memory, focus and clarity of thought, and restore your stamina and  sexual vitality!

Does Testosterone Replacement Therapy Increase Risk of Cancer? Heart Disease? Stroke? NO!

Testosterone is more than just a “sex hormone.” Normal physiological  levels of testosterone are essential to longevity, a feeling of  well-being, and your sexual vitality!


Physiological levels of testosterone are essential to maintain your  cardiovascular health, prostate health, mental clarity, and sexual  vitality. Numerous medical studies have shown that there is NO  association between normal physiological levels of testosterone and  prostate cancer or heart disease or strokes. Actually to the contrary,  prostate cancer becomes more prevalent at the time in a man’s life when  testosterone levels decline.


So how did the commonly held beliefs, even widespread in the medical  profession, that Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is associated  with increased risk for prostate cancer, heart disease and stroke get  started and propagated?.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy protects from cancers, heart disease and stroke

A LITTLE SCIENCE: The true culprit is Low-T and high Estrogens

Testosterone is converted in your body to Estrogens by Aromatase enzymes and to DHT in the prostate by Alpha-reductase enzymes.  The association  of TRT and cancer, stroke, heart disease first took hold because doctors  were frequently overdosing patients and their testosterone levels  peaked way above physiological levels. 


Men ONLY make about 5 – 10 mg  daily, which averages to 50 – 70 mg a week of testosterone, but often  men are prescribed creams, gels, patches or injections that result in  their peak testosterone levels way above physiological levels. 


When  injecting testosterone once every two weeks or weekly, super  physiological levels of testosterone are reached within 24 hours after  the testosterone injection. This peak is followed by a rapid decline to  low levels resulting in peaks and valleys often accompanied  by mood swings. The EXCESS testosterone is then metabolized by the body  by aromatase enzymes to estrogens, and in men, the activity of aromatase  enzymes increases with age.  Also, in the prostate the excess  testosterone is converted by reductase enzymes to DHT. 

The "Side-Effects" of Testosterone Therapy due to OVERDOSING and high Estrogens and DHT metabolites

The “side effects” of testosterone therapy, that one often reads  about, are NOT associated with bio-identical, physiological Testosterone  Replacement Therapy, but rather are the SIDE EFFECTS due to the  ESTROGEN and DHT metabolites of EXCESS testosterone:

  • DHT is an extremely potent androgen and  excess is associated with male pattern hair loss, prostate cell  proliferation, BPH and prostate cancer.
  • EXCESS estrogens in men are associated  with gynecomastia, increase risk of stroke, increase heart attacks,  arteriosclerosis, insulin resistance, BPH and prostate cancer


So Testosterone Replacement Therapy has really gotten a “bad rap”  because too many doctors are overdosing patients and the bad side  effects are associated with the increased metabolites, not with  Testosterone. Normal physiological levels of Testosterone are essential  for good health and prevention of high cholesterol, heart disease,  strokes, diabetes and cancer.
