Hormone Replacement Therapy: For Women Only?

Riverside Pharmacy and Compounding Shop of North Hollywood CA, challenges a common misconception men may have about hormone replacement therapy: that it is strictly for women. In fact, many men could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy to combat common health issues men experience - issues many men dismiss as inevitable signs of aging.

In recent men's health research, many men reported several common physical and emotional symptoms often attributed to aging, including:

  • Decreased libido
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Decreased strength
  • Decreased stamina
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep disorders
  • Depression and Anxiety

These are all potential symptoms of andropause, or male menopause, a condition marked by a decrease in testosterone levels, or an increase in estrogen levels. These symptoms may respond favorably to male hormone replacement therapy.

Off-the-shelf Testosterone Supplements Offer Limited Relief

As more men are learning about the benefits of male hormone replacement, more and more hormonal supplements are turning up in the marketplace. Too often, however, these supplements are the mass-produced, one-size-fits-all variety that doesn't consider the user's individual needs. That's why more men are turning to Riverside Pharmacy and Compounding Shop custom compounded supplements for their male hormone replacement needs.
