Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Around age 40, it’s very common for men’s testosterone levels to dramatically decline (andropause). While other important hormones may also be in decline, it is the loss of testosterone that causes some of the more noticeable physiological changes:
- Decreased sexual performance & drive or sexual dysfunction
- Insomnia or other sleep disturbances
- Increased body fat
- Decreased aerobic capacity
- Reduced bone density
- Reduced muscle strength
- Loss of stamina and energy
- Hair loss
- Sudden mood changes and depression
- Reduced motivation
Men often additionally benefit from the replacement of several other hormones including DHEA, thyroid, melatonin, and pregnenolone (see BHRT Hormone Types).

“I came to Dr Brandt after fighting an escalating cholesterol problem compounded by a lack of testosterone in my system. After some analysis and looking into my current conditions Dr Brandt created a plan for my specific situation and it was put into motion. Today after my 6 week checkup I was talking with Dr Brandt about not realizing how lousy I originally felt with my very low testosterone situation and worrying about my cholesterol which seemed to keep rising even though I was adjusting my diet and exercise. Today I can say that my cholesterol went from 238 to 183 in 6 weeks and my testosterone levels continue to recover which has me feeling good again. The effect of his treatments has left me feeling solid and encouraged about my future and ability to keep enjoying the things I love to do outside! If you feel like you got run over by a bus every day, take some action. There is help available.John from Vail Valley, Colorado, email, January 2014
