Understanding Hormone Imbalance in Men

Hormone imbalances in men are significant but often overlooked or misunderstood. As you get older, these imbalances become more frequent, leading to symptoms that can impact daily life and increase health risks.

These imbalances occur when your glands fail to produce and regulate the correct levels of hormones in your bloodstream. While occasional fluctuations are normal, persistent imbalances can greatly affect your overall health.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men

Identifying symptoms can be difficult because they may be subtle or inconsistent, often resembling other health issues. Testing is essential for diagnosis. Common symptoms indicating a hormonal imbalance include:

  • Low libido: A decrease in sex drive can strain relationships. Low testosterone or high estrogen levels often contribute.

  • Erectile dysfunction: Caused by factors like stress, heart disease, or low testosterone, this may require a combination of hormone therapy and lifestyle changes.

  • Gynecomastia: Enlarged breast tissue in men strongly indicates hormonal imbalance and can impact self-esteem, potentially requiring treatment like Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

  • Gaining fat and losing muscle: Despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle, low testosterone or high cortisol levels may lead to increased fat and decreased muscle.

  • Mood changes: Hormonal imbalances can cause irritability, mood swings, depression, and anxiety, often without being recognized as treatable hormone issues.

Additional Symptoms to Watch For

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Brain fog
  • Elevated blood sugar
  • Low energy
  • Decreased bone density
  • Abnormal heart conditions
  • Low testosterone can also cause irritability and depression

What Causes Low Testosterone?

Low testosterone can be caused or exacerbated by various factors, such as:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Medications, such as opioids and steroids
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Tumors or dysfunction of the pituitary gland
  • Natural aging
  • Infection, trauma, or injury of the testes
  • Chemotherapy and certain cancer treatments
  • Metabolic disorders like hemochromatosis (excess iron in the body)

If you’re having symptoms of low testosterone, you should visit Xbody Health, Wellness.

What Are The Risks Of Low Testosterone?

  • Anemia
  • Increased cardiovascular risk
  • Diabetes
  • Increased body fat
  • Depression
  • Aging
  • Osteoporosis
  • Atherosclerosis

How Does Anxiety Impact Hormone Balance in Men?

Anxiety can increase cortisol and adrenaline levels, disrupting hormone balance and potentially lowering testosterone. This imbalance can affect muscle strength, energy, and libido, contributing to weight gain and reduced sexual desire.

Untreated hormone imbalances can lead to mood changes, low energy, and stress. Factors like stress and genetics can worsen anxiety, indicating possible hormone deficiencies. Recognizing symptoms like fatigue, mood swings, and sleep disturbances early is crucial. BHRT can effectively address these imbalances, easing anxiety and enhancing overall well-being.

What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

Testosterone therapy is hormone replacement therapy designed to supplement the testosterone hormone your body isn’t producing or can’t produce in sufficient amounts.

XBody Health, Wellness & Spa offers quality in-house treatments to help men restore hormonal balance, including hormone pellets and testosterone injections. Your provider can even give you guidelines if you’d prefer to do your testosterone injections at home.

Injections and pellets are particularly convenient. With pellet therapy, you don’t have to think about your hormones for months as the pellet does the work for you.

With pellet therapy, your provider places small pellets in the fatty layer beneath the skin of your upper buttocks. The pellets secrete testosterone that’s steadily absorbed into your bloodstream over time.

Testosterone hormone replacement therapy can boost your mood, energy, mental health, muscle mass, and much more.

Male Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

If you experience symptoms of hormone imbalance, BHRT can safely and effectively restore balance. 

Since 2015, Xbody Health & Wellness has provided personalized, alternative treatments for overall wellness. Our integrative plans include laboratory testing to identify the root cause of symptoms, analyze hormone levels, and create an action plan involving BHRT, lifestyle changes, diet and exercise program. Stress management, regular exercise, a balanced diet, and quality sleep are incorporated to support hormonal balance.

Recognizing your symptoms is the first and most crucial step on your wellness journey. Contact Xbody Health & Wellness today to diagnose and treat your hormone levels, helping you feel your best again.
