How can we help men optimize their hormonal health?
Our hormones are best described as our body’s messengers. They are responsible for several different functions in the body, beginning in the earliest stages of a man’s sexual development and later into life. If the hormonal system functions properly, we look and feel our best, but an imbalance of hormones can contribute to a general feeling of being unwell. Men in Stamford, Connecticut, who believe they have an imbalance in their hormones, are welcome to contact the Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine team to complete an evaluation and assess their current hormone levels. By knowing what is going on with the hormone levels, Drs Robert Kachko, Paul Epstein, and Veena Verma-Dzik can provide solutions.
Why is men’s hormonal health important?
When your hormones are not balanced, you will notice changes in many aspects of your life. You may find yourself moody, tired, and dealing with body changes such as increased or reduced weight and muscle weakness.
What are hormonal imbalance symptoms?
Some common signs of hormonal imbalance include:
- Rounded, puffy face
- Increased thirst and hunger
- Lowered sex drive
- Hair loss and thinning
- Muscle weakness
- Changes in weight
- Increased urination
- Depression and anxiety
- Changes in mood and irritability
- Generally feeling unwell
Are men affected differently by hormonal imbalances?
The most common hormonal imbalance issue for men is low T or low testosterone. Testosterone often drops dramatically as men age and can result in changes such as less bone and muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, difficulty concentrating, and slowing hair growth on the body.
