Loss of skeletal muscle mass, known as sarcopenia, occurs as we age. Studies indicate that there is a 20% loss of skeletal muscle in healthy men between 30 to 70 years of age. As with many symptoms of andropause, muscle loss is a symptom that many men assume is “a natural part of aging.” In reality, age-related muscle loss is often caused by male hormone imbalance. Like other andropause symptoms, muscle loss can be reversed or prevented through treatment
Testosterone plays a major role in muscle tone and strength. When testosterone levels decrease, the muscle cells atrophy (shrink), which results in decreased muscle mass and tone. Symptoms of muscle loss include musculoskeletal weakness and loss of stamina, which can interfere with physical activity. Lack of physical activity, in turn, further reduces muscle mass
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is ideal for the individual experiencing loss of strength and muscle tone. Our highly trained physicians will work one on one with you to optimize your hormone levels and reverse your symptoms of low testosterone. Your expert hormone therapy doctor will also customize a nutrition plan, nutritional supplement regimen and exercise routine designed to help you build muscle mass, muscle tone and strength, along with reducing body fat.
