Studies have long shown that getting more exercise is good for your body, and it’s no surprise. However, a recent study shows that even if your activity level drops and you eat poorly for a short period of time, such as the holidays, simply exercising daily can help ward off some of the negative impacts. Get more information about the study and its implications at the New York Times’ Wellness Blog.

Age brings on hormonal changes for both genders. Though menopause and its effects on women receive a great deal of medical attention, men also face hormone depletion as they age. Just as women may experience a drop in estrogen, men may suffer from insufficient testosterone levels. Hormone therapy, which supplies the missing hormones, can restore balance to an older man’s body. Given that low testosterone can make a man persistently weary, depressed, and disinterested in his romantic partner, hormone therapy can prove integral to maintaining a high quality of life. Hormone therapy can also address abnormally low levels of other hormones, including thyroid, HGH, pregnenolone, and DHEA. Seeing a physician who specializes in hormone therapy is important, as other physicians may not have the expertise required to prescribe the necessary hormones or the correct dosages.

Many people don’t realize how disruptive menopause can be to a woman’s life. This part of getting older can be more than a minor inconvenience; menopause can lead to both physical and emotional distress. Hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and even osteoporosis can result from this condition. If you are suffering from menopause complications, now may be the perfect time to seek hormone therapy. When consulting a hormone therapy expert, asking the following questions can prove highly beneficial to your future treatment.
What symptoms can hormone therapy alleviate?
Not all women experience the same menopausal side effects. No matter your personal symptoms, the goal of hormone therapy is to eliminate them. By reintroducing the hormones that menopause has diminished, you can once again experience life as you did prior to this life change. When discussing the benefits of hormone therapy, be clear and detailed about your symptoms so your doctor can prescribe a dosage that’s right for you.
How quickly can I see results from hormone therapy?
Upon using it for the first time, hormone therapy goes to work to reestablish balance in the body. How fast that balance is felt by a patient may vary from woman to woman. However, your doctor should be able to provide a general timeline of how quickly your hormone therapy will alleviate symptoms.
Does hormone therapy come with any side effects?
Since hormone therapy aims to restore hormone levels to their pre-menopausal state, it generally comes with few to little complications. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may need a greater dosage if initial attempts cannot adequately address your needs.

Men with low testosterone may initially think they need more sleep or less stress, as they often experience chronic tiredness and abrupt mood shifts. These symptoms won’t get much better, however, if low testosterone is to blame. This condition can accompany several other medical issues, such as heart disease, obesity, and even diabetes.

The hormone testosterone is strongly linked to men. This essential chemical significantly influences libido, it facilitates the growth and maintenance of muscle mass—it even determines the sound of a man’s voice. For this reason, a drop in testosterone can substantially affect a man’s physical health and mental wellbeing. Studies indicate that this problem is growing across the United States. As with many medical issues, professional intervention with hormone therapy may be the only option for recovery and future wellness.
What Causes Testosterone Levels to Drop
Many factors can alter the production of testosterone in the body. High stress is a common reason for low testosterone. If a person is under chronic anxiety because of work responsibilities, family issues, or money concerns, it can suppress the creation of testosterone. Weight issues may also contribute to this problem; if a man is obese, he may experience low testosterone levels.
Why More Men Are Suffering from Low Testosterone
Many men must contend with chaotic workplace demands and deadlines. As a result, their stress levels remain chronically high, which diminishes the presence of testosterone in the body. Busier schedules also mean less time to work out. Without a consistent exercise regimen, many men gain weight and suffer from low testosterone.
How Hormone Therapy Can Replenish Testosterone
Many doctors recommend stress relief techniques and regular physical activity for general health. Once a man suffers from low testosterone, however, these measures may not be enough to alleviate the problem. Hormone therapy is a safe, effective, and fast remedy for low testosterone. Some treatment methods require nothing more than applying a patch to the skin. The results can greatly improve daily life for men with irregular testosterone levels.
Let Gary London, M.D., help you return to your former vibrant self. If you suffer from low testosterone, or suspect that you do, get your hormone levels tested. Hormone therapy can provide the results you need to again experience the energy, strength, and stamina that you want in life.
