As men age, they too can experience a decline in hormone production which can lead to many symptoms and conditions commonly referred to as “Andropause.” Decreased libido, a lack of energy, fatigue, irritability, difficulty concentrating and a lack of motivation are all common side effects of male hormone decline. Often diagnosed as hypogonadism, the symptoms associated with andropause can leave men feeling down and out. One of the most common male hormones that can cause a hormone imbalance is testosterone; as the primary male sex hormone, testosterone plays a large part in regulating several processes in the male body.
Symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency in Men:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Sleep disturbances and daytime fatigue
- Loss of muscle tone
- Accumulation of fat, especially around the abdomen
- Loss of body hair
- Difficulty concentrating and problems with memory
- Hot flashes and night sweats

Understanding the Role of Testosterone in Men
Testosterone is the primary hormone in a group of male hormones called androgens. It plays a large role in male sexuality, reproductive health, and bone health. Testosterone production increases as a boy enters puberty and peaks when he is in his early twenties. Unfortunately, it already starts tapering off by the time a man is 30 years old. Although there is considerable variation among men, a one percent decrease in testosterone production every year after age 30 is typical.
There are numerous benefits to replacing the testosterone your body has lost. Other men who have completed Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy offered by Fort Lauderdale Bioidentical Hormones Doctor, Jeffrey Thackrey, M.D. report amazing symptom relief and a restoration of both energy levels and libido.
Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
Although it is tiny, the thyroid is one of the most important glands in the human body. It is located directly below your Adam’s apple and cricoid cartilage. In most men, the thyroid weighs less than one ounce. Having a thyroid that is either underactive or overactive can cause hormonal imbalance problems. Hypothyroidism, which is when the body can’t produce enough of the hormone to meet the body’s needs, is more common.
The goal of thyroid replacement therapy offered by Fort Lauderdale’s most highly trained Bioidentical Hormones Doctor, Jeffrey Thackrey, M.D. is to restore your thyroid to normal functioning. Since the primary function of the thyroid is to maintain your metabolism, replacing what your body no longer produces helps you to lose or maintain your weight. When your metabolism is healthy, you are less likely to see fat stores around your midsection. Maintaining blood calcium levels is another important function of the thyroid.
What is Pregnenolone?
Pregnenolone is a steroid hormone that is first synthesized by the cholesterol in your body and then created by your adrenal glands. Pregnenolone, along with the hormone DHEA, is responsible for creating testosterone and all other hormones in your body. Because it is made from the supporting tissues in your brain, pregnenolone activates neuroreceptors that alternately stimulate and calm your brain. When this level of hormone is too low, you are likely to experience fatigue and problems with concentration and memory. Mood disturbances are also common, with depression and irritability being the most frequent complaints.
In addition to alleviating common symptoms, undergoing Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy with pregnenolone can help you feel more youthful and energetic, prevent cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancers, and help improve your overall sense of well-being.
