Symptoms such as fatigue, muscle loss, belly fat, low sex drive, decreased sexual stimulation, and diminished sense of well-being can be due to a Testosterone deficiency. These symptoms can be significantly improved with natural Testosterone replacement. Testosterone when tested by itself will provides a screening of your Total Testosterone level. Testosterone is essential to optimal health and vitality for both men and women. It is affected by aging Testicular or Ovarian function, declining production of the precursor hormones, including Pregnenolone, DHEA and Progesterone, as well as an increased conversion into Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), Estradiol and Estrone. Typically it is best to test Total Testosterone in conjunction with all of these other hormones to get the complete picture for optimal function and to prevent increased risk due to excessive downstream conversion.
Hormones exert a powerful influence over men and women’s health. Testosterone increases both physical as well as emotional energy, muscle strength and confidence, promotes physical attraction, emotional bonding and a healthy sex drive, builds bone density, reduces total Cholesterol, raises the Good HDL Cholesterol and prevents plaque build-up in the arteries.
For optimal health it is recommended that you perform a comprehensive assessment of all 9 of your key hormones. All 9 key hormones (Pregnenolone, Estrone, Estradiol, Estriol, DHEA, Progesterone, and Testosterone, SHBG and Free Testosterone) should usually be tested at the same time, because all of your hormones depend on each other for production and all of them interact synergistically. However, occasionally you may want to measure your Testosterone levels separately. Informed decisions regarding the need to initiate Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), or how to individualize therapy can then be made to maximize the health benefits of BHRT. Individual differences in hormone metabolism make monitored therapy the best way to prevent imbalances and push back the signs of aging.
Careful monitoring and individualization of BHRT can provide men and women with the benefits of optimally balanced hormones – the way it was intended by nature.
Many women do not know that Testosterone is produced by both men and women. In fact, the steroid hormone Androstenedione is converted in both men and women to Testosterone first, then Testosterone is converted into Estradiol(E2), the major Estrogen secreted by the human ovary. When a woman’s ovarian function declines in the years before and during natural menopause, so does the amount of Testosterone she produces. Between a woman’s 20s and 40s the amount of Testosterone circulating in her blood declines about 50%. If a woman starts synthetic Estrogen Replacement Therapy at menopause, her blood levels of Testosterone drop even further due to a biochemical reaction.
Symptoms such as fatigue, muscle wasting, low sex drive, decreased sexual stimulation, and diminished sense of well-being can be due to a Testosterone deficiency. These symptoms can be significantly improved with natural Testosterone replacement.
