ABOUT
HRT for Men

Men can experience various symptoms as their testosterone production levels decrease with age. Known as andropause, testosterone begins to decline in most men after age 30 and can lead to physical, sexual, and emotional changes. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone in males, contributing to the development of reproductive tissues, muscle mass, bone mass, and body hair growth.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the scientific process of optimizing hormones that are no longer produced in abundance. Symptoms such as fatigue and loss of energy, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, insomnia, brain fog, low libido, and depression are signs of a hormone imbalance that can be treated with hormone therapy.

Our Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men

Bioidentical hormones reflect the molecular and chemical structure of the body’s naturally-producing hormones. In contrast to artificial hormones, bioidentical hormones metabolize as efficiently as those naturally occurring but without bothersome side effects of their non-bioidentical “cousins.” Since every individual’s hormonal imbalance is different, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” regarding HRT.

The healthcare professionals at Fit MD will formulate a custom plan following a comprehensive evaluation. Your program will address your body’s specific needs and begin your journey toward Living Optimized.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men

Hormonal imbalances occur when there’s too much or too little hormone in the bloodstream. Since hormones regulate most major bodily functions, even the slightest imbalance can cause symptoms that affect a man’s quality of life.

Thanks to modern medicine, we have significantly lengthened our life expectancy. However, the glands that create our hormones are forced to produce them longer. Tremendous stress, lower fitness levels, and worsening nutrition combined can lead to declining hormone levels and imbalance.

Fatigue and Loss of Energy

Symptoms

Men with fatigue are constantly exhausted. Although a common symptom of andropause, fatigue is vastly different from everyday tiredness. It presents itself with a constant lack of energy, mood swings, and difficulty completing tasks.

Another difference between fatigue/energy loss and sleepiness is that it often affects physical and mental states. In addition to sleepiness and muscle aches, you may also begin to feel uninterested in essential tasks, become forgetful, or struggle to concentrate. It’s a decrease in energy that never seems to disappear.

Hormonal Imbalance and Fatigue Loss of Energy

As testosterone levels decline, the resulting hormonal imbalance can lead to insomnia, thus leading to exhaustion. Mood changes are also a likely result, which can further a feeling of weariness. A primary cause of andropause is an androgen deficiency, a group of hormones that regulate male reproductive health that can also contribute to fatigue.

Fatigue and HRT

The bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) programs at Fit MD can help you increase energy levels and simultaneously relieve exhaustion in a short period of time. We’ll conduct a hormone level analysis to determine if your body is experiencing low testosterone and other androgens. Then, your Fit MD healthcare team will prescribe a personalized plan to balance your hormones, thus providing relief from fatigue and other related symptoms.

Weight Gain

Hormones and Weight Gain

As we age, our bodies naturally gain weight due to lowered metabolism, muscle weakness, and other contributing factors. Although proper nutrition, exercise, and an active lifestyle are essential to weight loss, the role hormones play can’t be overlooked. When males experience a hormone imbalance, weight gain is a common result.

Diminished testosterone and/or growth hormone, the hormone responsible for male muscle mass, bone mass, hair growth, and reproductive organs, can lead to increased body fat in the waist area. When your muscle cells are lower in number, fewer calories are burned with the same level of activity and metabolism slows, resulting in weight gain.

The Solution: Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones and weight loss are interconnected. It’s possible to regain your hormonal balance by replacing what’s lost with natural, bioidentical hormones. At Fit MD, we analyze your hormone levels to determine whether BHRT is a solution for you.

We then create a customized program to help you eat better, exercise more, and maintain an active lifestyle for natural weight loss. We can also help initiate quicker weight loss with prescription medication and/or pharmaceutical grade lipotropics when appropriate.

Loss of Muscle Mass

Hormones and Muscle Mass

One key factor in the amount of muscle mass a man has is the hormone levels that are present in his system. Key hormones like testosterone and human growth hormone play a pivotal role in the ability for a man to put on and “hold” muscle. Unfortunately, both of these critical muscle-building hormones decrease as we age OR if we are continually living lifestyles that would be described as “stressful.” Things like lack of sleep, poor nutrition, shift work, lack of exercise, and poor relationships can all have a negative effect on a man’s hormone levels.

Optimizing Muscle Levels With HRT

Thankfully, men don’t have to suffer the negative effects of decreased muscle mass due to a decrease in their testosterone or growth hormone. With properly diagnosed levels, and customized treatment programs using bioidentical testosterone and peptide therapy, men just like you have achieved optimal hormone levels, allowing them to increase their muscle mass with resistance training, and at the same time they’ve been able to hold onto the muscle they’ve worked so hard to achieve.

Insomnia

Andropause and Insomnia

Unfortunately, insomnia and hormone imbalance can negatively affect each other. When a hormone imbalance is caused by andropause, sleeplessness can worsen the inequality. Insomnia not only affects your sleep quality but other body functions, as well. Your body needs solid sleep for repair, rejuvenation, and for your hormones to do their job.

Chronic insomnia makes everyday tasks more difficult and can have dangerous health effects. Men experiencing insomnia can suffer from hypertension, heart disease, depression, lowered immune function, and an increased risk of alcoholism.

Managing Insomnia With HRT

Balancing hormones allows your body to rest and perform at an optimal level. Bioidentical hormone therapy can provide relief from insomnia and other symptoms of imbalance. When our healthcare professionals test your hormone levels, we’ll create a custom program that addresses your specific needs. If your levels are low, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can bring them back to normal.

Brain Fog

What Does Brain Fog Mean?

Although “brain fog” isn’t an official diagnosis, it dulls your cognitive abilities, preventing you from Living Optimized. The grouping of symptoms comes together to cause a decline in memory, focus, or difficulty thinking clearly.

Several things can cause brain fog, such as vitamin deficiencies, changes in blood pressure, medications, and toxins. For men, an imbalance of critical hormones such as testosterone can affect parts of the brain, like the hippocampus, that control memory, and cognitive functions.

Live Optimized With HRT

If you haven’t been feeling like yourself lately due to brain fog, the Fit MD team can help you restore your sense of balance. We look at everything that can contribute to brain fog, including lifestyle, nutrition, and biochemical aspects, and address each according to your needs. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), stress management support, and nutritional counseling can work together to clear your mind.

Low Libido

Causes of Low Libido

Since testosterone and growth hormone are essential to sexual development, any imbalance can negatively affect those areas. Some men experience erectile dysfunction (ED), while others don’t have the same desire for intimacy as they once did.

Physically speaking, if sex is painful or you don’t achieve orgasm as quickly, it could reduce your desire for intimacy. If your emotional state or lifestyle habits don’t support a healthy sex life, you’ll also be less inclined to engage in intimate activity. In a biological sense, as the hormone level that supports sexual functions drops over time, you may feel less comfortable during sex, your desire for it lowers, and ED could arise.

Renew Your Intimacy

When you visit Fit MD for a comprehensive consultation, we’ll investigate why your libido is lower than you’d like. Following an analysis and examination, our medical professionals will create a plan to incorporate lifestyle changes, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), and maybe even medication. We’ll help you regain the youthful desire for intimacy.

Depression

Hormone Imbalance and Depression

Depression is more than just feeling down from time to time. It’s overwhelming episodes from emotions such as anger, frustration, sadness, loss of interest, sleep issues, and more that negatively impact our daily lives. It strains our relationships, lowers work productivity, increases the use of drugs or alcohol, and/or creates suicidal tendencies.

Depression can be caused in various ways, such as:

  • Genetic factors – men who have had depressive feelings since early childhood without trauma
  • Situational factors – feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness from significant life changes
  • Biochemical/hormonal imbalances – substances in the brain that regulate our emotions, such as testosterone

We Can Help

The knowledgeable healthcare providers of Fit MD will assess all factors that may be causing your depressive state. The information gathered is then used to determine which can be naturally treated and those that can improve with lifestyle changes. Significant contributors to helping you find relief include Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), personal support, and exercise.

Real people

Real reviews.

My FitMD experience has been positive all-around. I came in to help with my focus, libido and energy and I’ve noticed some good results. I love the way everyone cares so much and how they are always looking to educate me on health and wellness. I’d certainly recommend FitMD to anyone who wants to get the kind of results I got.

JWColorado

I’ve had such a better experience than what I had at my general healthcare doctor who did nothing to fix my problems and didn’t develop a personal relationship to get to know me. Everyone at FitMD has made me feel welcome. They’ve answered all my questions and every time I email, they get back to me right away. While my life has improved already, I’m really looking forward to the results I’ll get over time!

TMColorado

I can’t believe how long I let myself feel the way I did. I didn’t realize how good I could feel! I credit the people at FitMD with helping me live my best life. I recommend seeing them sooner than later. You only have so much time…don’t waste any more of it!

BBColorado

I’m brand new to FitMD. Over the last several months I’ve noticed some weight gain that I wasn’t liking. I loved the concept of doctor-supervised weight loss and found out there’s a hormone component that I never thought of before. I’m looking forward to the results I’ll get with my treatment and if the way the FitMD treats me is any indication, I’m going to be really, really happy! Everyone here is GREAT!!
