Hormone Decline Due to Aging
Are you suffering from an age related hormone decline?
Low Hormones in Adults. Until recently the effects of low hormones in adults were not well known. It is now recognized as a specific clinical syndrome with a number of different physical, mental and sexual consequences that may affect the following:
- Changes in body composition
- Mental function and ability
- Central obesity and fat build-up
- Sexual drive and desire
- Psychological well being
- Exercise capacity and endurance
- Muscle strength and density
- Lipids in the blood
- Cardiovascular risk
- Sleep, anxiety and stress
If you are experiencing issues with any of the above you may have a hormone deficiency. It is best to consult with a medical expert who specializes in hormone therapy to determine if your hormones are in an optimal range. From an endocrine health perspective, "normal ranges" are not necessarily optimal ranges for you. A hormonal imbalance can occur at any age and an apparent hormone deficiency occurs during menopause for women and andropause in men.
In men, low testosterone levels and human growth hormone deficiency occur gradually over time. The low t condition is referred to hypogonadism or andropause. In women, the hormonal change marked by estrogen and progesterone deficiency is experienced more rapidly during perimenopause and menopause.
