Andropause

Think you’re too young for Andropause?

Just as women experience Menopause, men experience Andropause due to the naturally declining levels of testosterone as they age. In fact, the onset of Andropause can occur in the mid 30’s for some men. In addition, the risk of getting Andropause increases with age, stress levels and unhealthy lifestyle choices.

How do you know if you have Andropause?

When you start having some or all of these symptoms:

  • Diminished sex drive and erections
  • Reduced muscle mass and strength
  • Decreased bone density which can result in osteoporosis
  • Truncal obesity and unexplained weight gain
  • Feelings of anxiety or depression
  • Feelings of tiredness and sleepiness

Andropause can be treated

There are benefits of screening for Andropause. Upon successful treatment, it:

  • Enhances your sex drive
  • Improves ability to achieve and sustain erections
  • Increases muscle strength
  • Reduces risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduces body fat and weight gain
  • Lifts your mood and sense of wellbeing

How is Andropause treated?

Health Lifestyle choices slow down the progression of Andropause. There are also natural supplements that will boost testosterone production. These will be discussed and managed accordingly with the doctor.

You may also undergo testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), the male equivalent of hormone replacement therapy in women. The most popular way of administering this is through quarterly injections. Other options include gels applied to the skin.

Our package gives you the lift you need

Men’s Vitality Screening Package @ $320

Anti-Aging Hormone Screening Package

Healthy Hormone Screen … More than just Health Screening

Optimize cellular function and wellbeing as you Age

Aging is inevitable, it is a process that we cannot avoid, but we can certainly strive to prevent and delay aging’s damaging effects.

Anti Aging Medicine, through optimization of cellular function and prevention of cellular aging, strives towards the goal of “Healthy Aging”, by delaying or minimizing the physical frailty and mental deterioration associated with the normal aging process.

We all want to live longer. But living longer does not necessarily mean a better quality of life, if we are struck down by crippling chronic diseases or frequent illness.

We want to remain active, independent and productive, as we age.

Common Effects of Ageing and Hormone Imbalance:

  • Decline in physical vitality.
  • Loss of strength, muscle mass & increasing obesity.
  • Decline in sex drive, erection & vaginal lubrication.
  • Pre Menstrual & Menopausal symptoms
  • Decline in mental well being.
  • Brain fog & difficulty concentrating.
  • Anxiety, loss of confidence & depression.
  • Increase risk of cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis & general organ function deterioration.

Our hormone screening packages includes investigations of various hormonal deficiencies, key nutrient levels, inflammatory markers and a general health screening.  Relevant recommendations and interventions to delay this ageing process will be made following review of the results.

An essential component to ensuring healthy aging is to maintain an ideal weight by consuming optimal nutrition without overeating; to exercise regularly and to manage stress levels.

With appropriate hormone optimization and neutraceutical supplementation, we can achieve a better quality of life as we age.
