Hormone Therapy for Men
Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. has dedicated his knowledge and expertise in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and his extensive training from the Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine to treat the symptoms of male hormone decline and andropause in the Atlanta Georgia area. As a highly trained Male Hormone Expert, Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. of BodyLogicMD in Atlanta Georgia understands the effects that imbalanced or deficient hormone levels can have on men of all ages. No longer are hormone therapies only for women, as the modern medical community have identified the mid-life hormone decline experienced by men as often causing many of the detrimental side effects men associate with growing old.
If you’re a man approaching middle age, you may already be experiencing the symptoms of hormone decline, which can include decreased sexual libido, a lack of energy, and irritability. One of the most common causes of hormone imbalance in men is low testosterone. As men age, the testosterone production in their bodies slowly begins to decline. This means that a man in his 50’s could be facing every day with up to 25-30% less testosterone available to his body than he had in his 20’s. Commonly diagnosed as hypogonadism, Low Testosterone can cause many of the most detrimental side effects associated with andropause and male hormone decline.
Common Symptoms of Testosterone Decline in Men:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Sleep disturbances and daytime fatigue
- Loss of muscle tone
- Accumulation of fat, especially around the abdomen
- Loss of body hair
- Difficulty concentrating and problems with memory
- Hot flashes and night sweats
Work with Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. to Restore Your Hormone Balance
Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. of BodyLogicMD in Atlanta Georgia has helped countless Atlanta area men feel better physically and emotionally with Natural Male Hormone Replacement Therapy. This is a method of naturally replacing what your body has lost through the normal aging process. Unlike traditional allopathic doctors who treat symptoms one at a time, Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. believes that Natural Male Hormone Replacement Therapy is the most effective course of action to treat the root cause of hormone related conditions in men.
After examining you and determining your current hormone level, Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. will design a custom Male Hormone Replacement Therapy program to target your unique needs and symptoms. Male Hormone Replacement Therapy may use a combination of several different hormones including testosterone, thyroid, and pregnenolone, which you can learn more about below.
Understanding the Role of Testosterone in Men
Testosterone is the primary hormone in a group of male hormones called androgens, it plays a large role in male sexuality, reproductive health, and bone health. Testosterone production increases as a boy enters puberty and peaks when he is in his early twenties. Unfortunately, it already starts tapering off by the time a man is 30 years old. Although there is considerable variation among men, a one percent decrease in testosterone production every year after age 30 is typical. Low testosterone plagues men as they approach middle age and can cause symptoms that can have detrimental effects on overall quality of life.
There are numerous benefits to replacing the testosterone your body has lost. Other men who have completed Hormone Replacement Therapy offered by Atlanta Male Hormone Expert Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. report amazing symptom relief and a restoration of energy levels and libido ins just a few weeks.
Thyroid Replacement Therapy
Although it is tiny, the thyroid is one of the most important glands in the human body. It is located directly below your Adam’s apple and cricoid cartilage. In most men, the thyroid weighs less than one ounce. Having a thyroid that is either underactive or overactive can cause hormonal imbalance problems. Hypothyroidism, which is when the body can’t produce enough of the hormone to meet the body’s needs, is more common.
The goal of thyroid replacement therapy offered by Atlanta’s most highly trained Bioidentical Hormones Doctor, Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. is to restore your thyroid to normal functioning. Since the primary function of the thyroid is to maintain your metabolism, replacing what your body no longer produces helps you to lose or maintain your weight. When your metabolism is healthy, you are less likely to see fat stores around your midsection. Maintaining blood calcium levels is another important function of the thyroid.
What is Pregnenolone?
Pregnenolone is a steroid hormone that is first synthesized by the cholesterol in your body and then created by your adrenal glands. Pregnenolone, along with the hormone DHEA, is responsible for creating testosterone and all other hormones in your body. Because it is made from the supporting tissues in your brain, pregnenolone activates neuroreceptors that alternately stimulate and calm your brain. When this level of hormone is too low, you are likely to experience fatigue and problems with concentration and memory. Mood disturbances are also common, with depression and irritability being the most frequent complaints.
In addition to alleviating common symptoms of hormone imbalance, Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy using pregnenolone can help you feel more youthful and improve your overall sense of well-being.
Men in all stages of life are becoming increasingly aware of the affects hormonal changes can have on their mind and body. No more do the symptoms of low testosterone or estrogen dominance in men have to be tolerated as a normal part of the aging process.
