Low sex drive, erectile dysfunction (ED), weight gain, and loss of muscle mass are just a few of the ways a hormone imbalance can manifest itself in men. As you get older, you might have low energy levels and feel tired all the time, yet not be able to sleep well at night. Or, perhaps you’re feeling more irritable than you used to and gaining weight despite eating a healthy diet. Any of these symptoms, along with several others, may indicate low testosterone levels, high cortisol levels, or a decline in estrogen and progesterone. But, you may not know if any of these are underlying causes until you get tested for hormonal imbalances.

Low testosterone can affect a man’s health, body and mind, making activities of daily living frustrating.
Most men are interested in Human Growth Hormone (HGH) because they’re trying to lose weight, build muscle mass or increase endurance.
When many of us think of progesterone, we think of it as being a hormone strictly for women. However, men need progesterone too.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced primarily by the adrenal cortex, but it is also secreted by the testes and the brain.
Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands as a biological response to stress, which is why many refer to it as the “stress hormone.”
Testosterone will begin to convert to estrogen in men as they age due to the aromatase reaction.
