YOUTH & VITALITY
“In patients who have symptoms of pre-menopause, post menopause or in men with symptoms of andropause it is important to talk to a knowledgeable physician to determine if the symptoms can be improved safely and to understand all options, benefits and risks,” Dr. Scott said. “Hormones can rejuvenate, regenerate and restore.* They are powerful chemical messengers that circulate throughout the body and travel to specific cells to orchestrate many vital internal functions. But even a small fluctuation in hormone levels can cause big changes at the cellular level—or disrupt the delicate balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences for your overall health and well-being.”

Choosing Hormone Replacement Therapy
Maintaining this delicate hormone balance is one reason to be cautious when selecting hormone replacement therapy. The goal should always be hormonal balance that is predicated on research rather than experimentation or guessing. Many therapies merely attempt to replenish estrogen and/or progesterone and testosterone, but they never achieve homeostasis.
Hormone balance is the foundation of health. Research continues to demonstrate that hormones are the key to the intricate interrelationships of the body’s systems. They play a pivotal role in our overall health.
The Danger of Hormone Imbalance
You can see why hormone fluctuation and depletion during perimenopause, menopause and andropause wreak havoc on the body. Research repeatedly points to the relationship between the hormone imbalance in perimenopause, menopause, and andropause and an increased risk for developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction and other age-related disorders.
It’s considered the norm for men and women to experience a decline in health at this stage of the aging process. Both women and men are likely to experience problems such as depression, anxiety, memory loss, sleep disturbances, libido issues and sexual dysfunction, just to name a few of the issues.

Testosterone and Women
Numerous studies have sought to examine the relationship between hypogonadal symptoms and total serum testosterone levels in men in order to identify a threshold at which symptoms occur and at which treatment is beneficial. However, the search for a discrete threshold may be futile given emerging evidence. Recent studies suggest that testosterone threshold varies by symptoms and among individuals. In addition, thresholds may vary between young and old men. Therefore, initiation of treatment should rely more on symptoms and less on a discrete numerical threshold. It is suggested that because of excessive reliance on laboratory measures of androgens and undue safety concerns, many men who could benefit from symptom relief, improvement in related clinical conditions and given preventive medical benefits remain untreated.
