St. Louis, MO, June 07, 2010 -- In support of National Men’s Health Week, the bi
oidentical hormone doctors at BodyLogicMD are dedicating the entire month of Jun
e to empowering men to lead proactive lifestyles and take charge of their health
by putting hormone testing on this month’s health check list.
“For men and women alike, health should be the number one priority, regardless o
f age,” shares St. Louis bioidentical hormones expert Dr. Bryan Warner. “Most me
n usually carry around the John Wayne mentality and would sooner bite their tong
ue than admit that there‘s a problem. It’s common for men to desensitize themsel
ves to the idea of getting older – being that they’re more willing to accept the
se changes, they usually do little to prevent them.”
Men have hormones too and like women, as men age, their hormones begin to declin
e, oftentimes resulting in symptoms of andropause – the male menopause. It’s est
imated that nearly 25 million American men over 40 are currently suffering sympt
oms of hormonal imbalance, but most chalk it up to getting older or ‘midlife cri
BodyLogicMD expert physicians recommend hormone testing for men who experience t
hree or more of the following signs of andropause:
• Loss of Sex Drive
• Depression
• Irritability
• Muscle loss
• Weight gain
• Sleep problems
• Erectile problems
• Memory loss
• Thinning hair
• Decreased bone density
Although andropause is the most common cause of hormonal imbalance in middle-age
d men, when it comes to low testosterone, (or Low T) male menopause isn’t necess
arily the only culprit. Other conditions such as hypogonadism can have a similar
effect on testosterone production and manifest many of the same symptoms – the
only difference is that hypogonadism can occur at any age, while the onset of an
dropause typically doesn’t set in until a man’s 40’s. Other hormones play a role
as well. Chronic stress can raise blood-cortisol levels and suppress testostero
ne production. Excess estrogen can counteract the effects of testosterone on the
body and lead to bone and muscle loss. This is why hormonal balance is so criti
cal to women and men alike. BodyLogicMD physicians recommends every man over the
age of 40 get a baseline hormone test to determine hormone deficiencies, especi
ally testosterone.
“Being that hormonal imbalances affect everyone differently, it’s hard to determ
ine the nature of a particular hormonal imbalance, based on the symptoms alone,”
explains Dr. Warner. “With blood and saliva testing, we’re able to pinpoint the
source of underlying hormonal imbalances and address the patient’s needs accord
ingly. Using customized nutrition and fitness regimens and bioidentical hormone
therapy, we’ve helped thousands of women – and men too – overcome symptoms of ho
rmonal imbalances."
