Hormone imbalance in men is often overlooked.
Hormone imbalance affects men too. Low testosterone is a common cause of irritability and grumpiness in men. Conversely, if too much testosterone is converted to estradiol, decreased sex drive and increased breast size can result.
Saliva hormone testing is a simple, accurate, and easily obtained lab. Four hormones make up the Male Panel: cortisol, DHEAs, estradiol, and testosterone. Interactions between these hormones are fundamental to health - which is why imbalances can have a significant impact on well-being.
Other conditions associated with male hormone imbalance:
- Apathy, depression
- Bone loss
- Erectile dysfunction
- Memory loss
- Weight gain
- Benign prostate hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
Why Order a Male Panel?
Men who experience symptoms like those above that are not relieved by mainstream medical interventions, may benefit from having a saliva hormone test. Knowing your hormone levels and how hormones work together may help your clinician find the right hormone solution for you.
