Lower hormone levels can have harmful effects on both men and women. Low T or hypogonadism is a condition where your body’s natural production of the hormone is below normal levels.
You may notice a variety of symptoms, including decreased sex drive, lack of energy, and hair loss.
While age plays a factor in the production of testosterone/estrogen and progesterone, diabetes and excessive weight have also been associated with the condition.
Your hormones control everything, from your metabolism and mood to your sex drive and energy and from your appetite and sleep to strength and endurance.
Could you have low testosterone? Depending on your age, you may experience different challenges, struggles, and health issues. If you are past the age of 30, your testosterone levels are gradually declining, and a drop in hormonal levels affects how your body operates.
Low testosterone is also associated with the following conditions:
- Chronic fatigue
- Increases in cholesterol and lipid levels
- Decreased muscle mass
- Heart disease
- Sleep problems
- And more
Low testosterone treatment helps you to rebalance energy levels, see an increase in libido, and feel less fatigued. Testosterone is present naturally in both men and women at varying levels, depending on gender and age.
Hormones are essential in reproduction but also significantly affect energy, hunger, sleep, mood, and even sexual performance.
Testosterone replacement therapy involves non-synthetic hormones, administered by injection in a customized dose to remedy your unique symptoms.
Our providers consider factors like sex, the severity of your symptoms, samples of blood, urine, and saliva in combination with a detailed medical assessment to determine your course of treatment.
Testosterone supplements are available in several forms, and testosterone injections are both safe and effective.
Estrogen and Progesterone Replacement
Hormone replacement therapy for women can help to relieve symptoms associated with menopause and peri-menopause. Hormone replacement therapy may use a combination of replacement estrogen and progesterone. Sometimes, only estrogen is used. When menopause occurs, women experience a natural decrease in estrogen and progesterone hormone production.
Symptoms of lowered estrogen and progesterone include:
- Hot flashes
- Breast tenderness
- Lack of vaginal lubrication
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Increased urinary tract infections
- Irregular/ absent periods
- Depression and mood changes
Aside from menopause, other conditions may contribute to a woman having lowered hormone levels. Progesterone plays an important role in the childbearing years. The lack of progesterone may decrease the ability to become and stay pregnant.
Women who have Polycystic ovarian syndrome (Pcos) may experience lowered levels of progesterone, leading to a lack of ovulation. Many have experienced proper nutrition bringing progesterone levels closer to normal levels.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (Pcos) symptoms include:
- Menstrual cycle irregularities
- Metabolism changes
- Excessive body/ facial hair
- Elevated levels of insulin in the blood
