hrt treatment options for men
The vital sex hormone in men is testosterone. It is produced in large quantities in the testes, though both sexes produce testosterone through the adrenal glands, near the kidneys. Testosterone is the “secret ingredient” enabling men to build muscle tissue relatively faster than women. It is also involved in physical strength, stamina, and libido.
Testosterone isn’t just for bodybuilders: it’s as important to men as estrogen is to women. In fact, men with low testosterone can suffer all the same symptoms as women. As men age, their testosterone level can begin to decline. However, low testosterone can affect men of all ages. One of the most common symptoms of low testosterone, sometimes known as low-t, is erectile dysfunction (ED). If you suffer from ED and cardiovascular issues are ruled out, hormonal imbalance is very likely the culprit!
Men can receive hormone replacement therapy using intramuscular injection, time-release pellet, or topical cream. The type used depends on the specific type of testosterone needed. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is another type of hormone men may need to supplement.
