Men’s Health Q & A

What are common men’s health issues?

The term “men’s health” usually refers to conditions linked to a man’s reproductive system. That said, men have elevated risks of certain health conditions like depression, high blood pressure (hypertension), and heart disease. Your practitioner can guide you in understanding your risk level for these issues and create a plan to reduce those risks. 

Some of the common issues that bring men in for men’s health services include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Low sex drive
  • Enlarged breast tissue
  • Weight gain

These changes commonly occur in men as they move into the later stages of middle age, but it’s also possible to notice shifts earlier in life. 

How are men’s health problems treated?

A primary cause of men’s health conditions is a normal reduction in testosterone production. The best way to treat this is through highly customized hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

This approach works by delivering supplemental hormones to create an optimal hormonal balance. There are several ways to administer testosterone and other hormones, including topical creams, oral pills, injections, and dissolvable pellets placed just beneath the surface of your skin. 

HRT begins with lab testing to understand your current hormone production levels. Your practitioner then determines your HRT therapy approach. It takes time for your body to adjust to supplemental hormones, so be patient as you move through the process. 

When is the right time to seek men’s health services?

Just because declining hormone production is a natural part of life, that doesn’t mean you have to accept the symptoms as inevitable. If you experience uncomfortable or disruptive changes to your lifestyle, it’s time to reach out for professional help. 

There is no bad time to begin exploring men’s health treatments. But the sooner you get started, the sooner you can begin to enjoy improvements, no matter whether those changes include weight loss, better heart health, or improved connections with your partner.
