Andropause can be a difficult maze to navigate, but BioID Health is here to assist with a Andropause Treatment tailored to you!
We are actively leading the fight against andropause by having developed a bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) treatment that is tailored to your specific needs, alleviating unpleasant symptoms and improving quality of life.
What is Andropause?
Andropause, more commonly known as “male menopause” refers to changes in male hormone levels as a result of growing older. Testosterone deficiency, androgen deficiency, and late-onset hypogonadism are all terms that refer to the same set of symptoms.
Testosterone levels begin to gradually diminish after the age of 30, and the symptoms of andropause begin to appear, such as low sex drive, and fatigue (to name a few). In fact, according to the NHS, testosterone levels in males aged 30 to 40 years old decreased by 2% per year. Although this is natural, it can pave the way for some very unpleasant side effects; that can continue for years.
In some aspects, andropause varies from female menopause. For one thing, it isn’t something that all males go through. Another advantage is that it does not necessitate a total shutdown of your reproductive organs. Sexual difficulties, such as erectile dysfunction on the other hand, may emerge as a result of your reduced hormone levels.
What are the symptoms of andropause?
Each case of andropause is unique and symptoms can differ widely for each individual. Some people will only experience a few minor symptoms, while others will have multiple that have a major impact on their quality of life; ranging from mild to severe.
There are a number of indicators to keep an eye out for that signal your body is changing. These can include the following:
Why is standard HRT not the best treatment for me?
All humans are biologically different and although all women have the same hormones in their body, they all have different levels.. As we age certain hormones may deplete more than others leading to specific imbalances and in turn associated symptoms.
Without a blood test to identify these levels of all your hormones it is impossible to deliver the most appropriate treatment for that individual woman. In addition, pharmaceutically manufactured compounds in standard HRT can create un-natural effects in the body and unwanted side effects.
The standard dose in HRT may be suitable for some women whilst not others and is only available as a tablet or patch.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
Unlike conventional HRT, which is made from synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) is made from plant sources that are equivalent to the hormones your body produces naturally. The treatment we utilise at BioID Health, mimics natural hormone production in the body to relieve the unpleasant symptoms of andropause.
How does BHRT work?
BioID works by mirroring the production of your natural hormones to replace those that you are deficient in – completely tailor-made and bespoke to your needs. Hormones are important messengers that assist us a daily basis to complete tasks and function properly; in effect controlling our psychological and physical well-being, mood, and overall quality of life.
Before beginning BHRT, a bespoke and specialised treatment plan would be put in place to replenish the precise hormones you are deficient in – restoring the body to its maximum performance. In order to find out what exactly you are lacking, a comprehensive assessment would be taken by one of our specialists, which would include a blood/ saliva test.
Bioidentical hormones have changed the game for treatments when it comes to andropause for men. Prescriptions are unique to your individual needs and are designed to help your body cope with the changes brought on by male menopause; alleviating many of those uncomfortable and difficult symptoms.
