Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help Men As Well As Women

While women know better how powerful hormones can be, men can have problems with hormonal imbalances as well. Obesity, for example is caused by an infection which leads to a hormone imbalance and various other problems that affect their daily lives. Also, Andropause affects men everywhere, everyday.
Andropause, the male equivalent to Menopause affecting women’s hormones, is a real condition affecting men everyday. This condition causes symptoms such as decline in sexual drive as well as libido. Early on men may not notice their decreased energy levels, loss of muscle tone and a less frequent desire for sexual intercourse, however, the more Andropause symptoms progress, men will start to notice increased weight gain, pot or "beer bellies," mood swings and irritability, forgetfulness, enlarged male breasts and even Erectile Dysfunction.
The most popular treatment today for Andropause, and Menopause for that matter, is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. This method of HRT is better than any previous form because it allows for men to be treated as well due to the flexibility of man-made hormones. In the past HRT was primarily geared toward women, understandably so, while men were suffering, ignored by the medical world around them. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a huge breakthrough as it now gives men, as well as women, relief from symptoms of Andropause.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is safer and more effective than predecessors because “natural” HRT treatments can actually be very dangerous and Premarin and oral HRT treatments should be banned indefinitely. Premarin has been known to cause an increase risk of heart disease and oral administered treatments cause liver damage due to increased Triglyceride levels. Bio-Identical HRT is created from Diosgenin and is made into a small pellet, molecule for molecule, identical to the hormones needed by the patient. Then this pellet is inserted either into the abdomen or the hip fat of the patient and allowed to dissolve over a couple of months.
Although women have had the main focus for HRT over the years, men no longer have to suffer either. Bio-Identical HRT is for everyone.
