Should I take a male hormone imbalance test?
Yes! The only real way to determine if hormones are out of balance is through testing of blood, urine or saliva. Without examining male hormone levels, it is impossible to determine male hormone balance causes. In order to receive proper treatment for hormone-related deficiencies, or the nutritional support necessary to increase levels naturally, schedule an appointment with your healthcare practitioner immediately, or arrange for private in-home testing today.
Male Hormone Imbalance Test
While many of us associate hormone balance with women and the changes they go through in mid-life menopause, many men don’t realize they’ve entered, “andropause” (male menopause) because they simply don’t recognize male hormone imbalance symptoms.
Mood disturbances, sexual dysfunction, loss of energy, and unexplained weight gain may go untreated because so many men fail to make the connection between male hormone imbalance symptoms and the real cause. As men enter their 30’s and 40’s, significant changes in hormone activity begin to occur involving, testosterone, estradiol, DHEA, progesterone, and cortisol. These cause males to experience a whole host of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms that never existed before.
