Men’s Health Compounding
Hormone Replacement Therapy: For Women Only?
Dial Drugs Pharmacy of Westland, MI, challenges a common misconception men may have about hormone replacement therapy: that it is strictly for women. In recent men’s health research, many men reported several common physical and emotional symptoms often attributed to aging, including:
- Decreased libido
- Decreased muscle mass
- Decreased strength
- Decreased stamina
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Heart disease
- Sleep disorders
- Depression and Anxiety
These are all potential symptoms of andropause, or male menopause, a condition marked by a decrease in testosterone levels, or an increase in estrogen levels. These symptoms may respond favorably to male hormone replacement therapy.
In fact, many men could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy to combat common health issues men experience. Unfortunately, many men dismiss these issues as inevitable signs of aging. In reality, hormone therapy can help men live more youthful, energetic lives, and slow down those “inevitable signs of aging”.
The Average Off-the-shelf Testosterone Supplements Offer Limited Relief
As more men are learning about the benefits of male hormone replacement, more and more hormonal supplements are turning up in the marketplace. Too often, however, these supplements are the mass-produced, one-size-fits-all variety that doesn’t consider the user’s individual needs. That’s why more men are turning to Dial Drugs Pharmacy custom compounded supplements for their male hormone replacement needs.
