Hormone Imbalance in Men

Hormones are a vital part of our endocrine system, a network of glands and organs that keep your body running smoothly. When they become imbalanced in some way, even just a little, it causes any number of health issues. As men age, hormone levels naturally decline, which can lead to troubling symptoms that make you feel older, more anxious, and not quite like yourself. 

Causes

Hormonal imbalances aren’t caused by just one thing, but by a combo of both internal and external factors. Some of these factors are within your control—but many aren’t! This can include things like normal aging, a diet high in processed foods, a sedentary lifestyle, high stress levels, genetic disposition (imbalance that runs in the family), exposure to toxins in your environment, or surgeries that affect one or more of the organs and glands in the endocrine system.

Low libido, ED, and loss of muscle mass are often caused by low testosterone—but they can also be caused by other imbalances such as thyroid, estrogen (yes, men have estrogen, too!), DHEA, and human growth hormone. 

Common Symptoms

Erectile Dysfunction

Difficulty or inability to have or sustain an erection

Fatigue

Persistent, sometimes intense feelings of tiredness or exhaustion

Weight Gain

Consistent, sometimes inexplicable increase in weight, often with an underlying cause

Inability to Build Muscle

Difficulty or inability to build and retain muscle, despite physical activity

Night Sweats

Significant sweating while sleeping, usually from an underlying cause

Loss of Focus

Inability to focus on daily tasks, general forgetfulness

Anxiety

Intense & persistent fear about everyday situations. Can include accelerated heart rate/breathing, sweating, & exhaustion.

Depression

A persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest in daily life, which can interfere with your ability to function

Low Libido

While it's natural for your sex drive to decrease with age, Low T can reduce your sex drive even further. It can happen at any age.

Lack of Motivation

Loss of motivation is common among the symptoms of Low T. Without motivation, the most routine task can become daunting.

Metabolic Syndrome

High blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels are symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome

Erectile Disfunction (ED)

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects about 40% of men by age 40. That number increases with age—but it’s actually NOT a normal part of aging.
