5 Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Men can struggle with hormone imbalances, just like women can. 

As women go through menopause, their changes occur fairly quickly, but for men, your drop in testosterone happens gradually as you age. 

On average, it falls about 1% every year after the age of 40. A recent study shows a steady decrease in testosterone among adolescent and young men in the United States.

At MultiCare Medical in Papillion, Nebraska, our medical team of professionals offers BioTE®, which is a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). It restores balance to your hormones by increasing your testosterone without using a synthetic product.

Let’s first look at some reasons why you might need hormone replacement therapy, and then some of the benefits.

Why men need BHRT

The good news is that you can, in a sense, recharge your hormone levels naturally with BioTE.

Understanding the benefits of BioTE

Here are several benefits you can expect from BioTE hormone replacement therapy.

1. Painless application

When you come in for your treatment, we make sure you’re comfortable so you won’t feel any pain. We make a very small incision into the fat under your skin in your upper hip and insert the hormonal pellets gently, which contain bioidentical testosterone or estrogen. The pellets optimize your hormones as your body absorbs them naturally as needed.

2. Customized treatment

We customize your BioTE method of treatment based on your personal physiology, which we determine from your comprehensive blood work analysis and a consultation with you.

3. Physical benefits

BHRT has many advantages concerning the enhancement of your overall physical health.

BioTE can:

4. Mental benefits

Hormone imbalances can cause cognitive issues that shouldn’t be ignored. BioTE can help you have a positive mental shift, allowing you to focus and think more clearly. 

5. Emotional benefits

BHRT can improve your mood, which affects your quality of life. It’s known to alleviate irritability, reduce anxiety, and relieve depression if you suffer from it.

BHRT has also been known to help with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), thyroid issues caused by a hormone imbalance, and metabolic syndrome, which can put you at risk for stroke and heart issues when it goes untreated.
