Bioidentical Hormones

Hormone Therapy for Men

Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones created to mimic what’s naturally made in the human body. They’re prescribed as a treatment for men and women who experience the effects of low hormones, andropause, or menopause.

Bioidentical hormones – Toronto men report these symptoms:

  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Insomnia/poor sleep
  • Lack of energy
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Increased weakness
  • Weight gain
  • Brain fog
  • Mood changes
  • Memory loss

Do these issues frustrate you? It’s not uncommon for men to experience any number of physical problems without understanding the cause. Over the age of 40, hormone changes become more apparent for even healthy, fit men.

Sovereign Male treats patients of all ages and backgrounds for hormonal imbalances causing uncomfortable symptoms. Because the signs of low testosterone and other deficiencies can be vague, it’s essential to talk to your physician about health changes and concerns so that you receive an accurate diagnosis. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is designed to increase the levels of appropriate hormones, restoring optimal body function.

Hormones are chemicals made by various glands. They act as messengers to direct many tasks in your body, ranging from cellular function to mood management. When hormones are imbalanced, people experience troubling symptoms. Men don’t always recognize the signs of low testosterone or other imbalances. As they age, they’re bound to experience levels dropping off, but luckily, there are safe ways to recharge the system and begin to feel rejuvenated again, including bioidentical hormone therapy.

Common hormones replenished with bioidentical hormone therapy include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Some forms of bioidentical hormones are custom-made by pharmacists, and that is called compounding. Several standardized preparations of bioidentical estradiol and progesterone, which are molecularly identical to natural hormones, are available. As bioidentical hormone therapy is highly personal, hormone replacement comes in different doses and routes of delivery like pills, gels, patches, creams, and sprays.

Custom combinations often include blends of plant-derived 17β-estradiol or micronized progesterone, while some contain estriol, pregnenolone, and DHEA. Not all formulations are created equal, and compounding adds concentration variables that are difficult to regulate. It’s crucial to seek experienced practitioners, consistent product formulations, and compounding pharmacies to get the benefits that you want.

How will my doctor select my dose?

When you discuss undergoing bioidentical hormone therapy at Sovereign Male, your doctor will take plenty of time to review the careful process that we use. The assessment and evaluation of results are ongoing and completely personalized. Doses can be adjusted according to a person’s symptoms and needs, using minimum amounts to achieve satisfying results. Your doctor might order blood, urine, or saliva tests to ensure that you’re receiving adequate treatment. Appointments are tailored to each valued patient, so book a consultation with us to discuss what your HRT might look like.

Are bioidentical hormones safe?

At Sovereign Male, we use bioidentical hormones that have been tested for safety and approved by Health Canada. More research is ongoing for hormone treatments of various kinds, and some have not been proven safe or unsafe. As with all medical procedures, patient safety strongly correlates to the quality of care received.

Your doctor will thoroughly explain the benefits and potential side effects experienced with bioidentical hormone therapy. Possible side effects include:

  • Weight gain
  • Blurry vision
  • Fatigue
  • Acne breakouts
  • Increased facial hair growth
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Indigestion

If you receive an injection or apply a cream or patch, you may experience temporary redness or itching in the treatment area. Your doctor will follow up closely with you to adjust the dosage and put your mind at ease while your body adjusts to replenished hormone levels. Most patients report progressive, positive effects shortly after bioidentical hormone therapy treatment.
