Men’s Hormone Therapy | Royal Oak, MI
Low Testosterone | Erectile Dysfunction

Maintaining optimal hormone levels is vital for men’s overall health and well-being. Men’s hormones are influenced by various factors such as age, diet, exercise, sleep, smoking, and stress management. Understanding how these factors impact hormone balance is crucial for preventing troublesome symptoms and reducing the risk of serious diseases.

Low testosterone – often called “Low T” – is a very common condition affecting many men, often manifesting after the age of 40 but sometimes occurring earlier. Symptoms include decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, muscle loss, weight gain, reduced bone density, and mood changes like irritability and depression. Factors like excessive sugar and carbohydrate intake, coupled with obesity, contribute to a condition known as ‘diabesity,’ which can further lowers testosterone levels. Additionally, certain medications, lack of physical activity, and inflammation can exacerbate hormonal imbalances in men.

Conversely, high estrogen levels in men, termed estrogen dominance, can lead to gynecomastia, erectile dysfunction, infertility, fatigue, and mood fluctuations. To accurately diagnose and address hormone imbalances, thorough, advanced laboratory testing is essential. Dr. Hakim employs a personalized approach to men’s hormone therapy, identifying the root cause of hormonal deficiencies and implementing tailored hormone replacement plans.

By restoring hormonal balance, Dr. Hakim at Prosperity Health in Royal Oak can alleviate symptoms, enhance sexual function, reduce disease risks, and improve men’s quality of life.
