Signs of Aging in Men

According to the Harvard Medical School, a growing number of men in the United States are taking testosterone to reverse the decline of the hormone, or so-called Andropause, the male counterpart to female Menopause, as they age.

Generally, men hit their physical peak at the age of 17. By the time they pass the age of 30 their Testosterone levels may be 50% lower.

Testosterone and other related hormones such as Hormone Growth Hormone, play an important role in maintaining muscle mass, sex drive, fat levels, sperm count, red blood cell production and bone strength. These are often referred to as “anti-aging” HRT tools but Regenx prefers the term “age management”.

Aging may cause

  • Low Libido
  • Prostrate enlargement
  • Testicular atrophy
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • depression
  • Lack of energy

As men age, these areas may be affected by low levels of Testosterone. Doctors in the United States sometimes treat this condition with synthetic testosterone or what the call bioidentical hormones.

Medical doctors often refer to a specific condition in men called Hypogonadism, which signals that there may be testosterone deficiencies in the testes or pituitary gland, which is controlled by centers in the brain. The brain secretes a signaling hormone to the male testes ordering it to “get ready for action”.

Low Testosterone or “Low T” thus affects sexual interest and motivation. During sexual activity, testosterone levels increases. However, long periods of celibacy may reduce hormone levels. In some cases, men with low hormone counts may still be able to have erections.

Many patients who undergo a medically supervised hormone treatment program report that the quality of their erections improve after they begin HRT treatment, although results will differ depending on the unique situation of each patient.

But, its not only sexual arousal, which is affected by the aging process — so too are other areas including muscle mass. This may manifest itself in flabby muscles or even worse, obesity. This in turn may also contribute towards high blood pressure and diabetes, both serious medical conditions. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) may be a valuable tool in helping build muscle mass. A medical doctor attached to an accredited HRT clinic will assess each patient thoroughly to determine if he or she qualifies for HGH treatment to slow down the aging process.

There are also a number of research articles which suggest that testosterone and HGH treatment can influence body composition and make a man produce leaner muscle mass. It may also produce stronger bone density.

The general result of hormone therapy will be a softening in the aging process and the propensity to craft a leaner, more muscular body even if you are beyond 40 years of age.

However, results are dependent on using a recognized medical institute or clinic to obtain treatment. A physician guided program ensures the program is customized towards each individual male patient and does not jeopardize the long-term health of the patient.
