How Doctors Treat Erectile Dysfunction with Hormone Therapy

Hormone Therapy Replaces Testosterone to Treat Erectile Dysfunction

Many men who have trouble maintaining an erection are too embarrassed to seek medical help for erectile dysfunction, and as a result they suffer in silence. Other men who are having sexual performance problems try crazy “miracle” treatments advertised online or on TV, that are totally ineffective and at best provide only limited and temporary relief.

The good news is that all-natural Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy offered at Prosperity Health in the Southfield, MI area can help treat erectile dysfunction (ED) – naturally and effectively, without dangerous side effects.

Why OTC Treatments Don’t Work for ‘Low T’ and ‘ED’

Low testosterone (Low T) and erectile dysfunction (ED) are common issues that affect many men, often causing immense frustration and discomfort. Over-the-counter (OTC) treatments and supplements may promise quick fixes, but they always fall short in delivering lasting results because they do not address the root causes of ED.

At Prosperity Health in the Southfield, MI area, Dr. Nishath Hakim understands that true relief for any medical condition – including ED –  comes from addressing the underlying issues. This is why BioTe hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can provide a comprehensive solution for men who cannot achieve or maintain erections.

What Causes Low Testosterone (Low T)

Testosterone levels in men typically decline gradually with age, a natural process known as “andropause”. The decline is often more gradual than the sharp drop in estrogen levels that women experience during menopause. Testosterone levels in men typically begin to decline gradually in their mid-30s, with about a 1-2% reduction per year.

This decline becomes more noticeable as men progress into their 40s and beyond. By the time a man reaches his 70s, he may have experienced a total reduction in testosterone levels of approximately 20-50% from his peak levels in his late teens and early 20s. However, it’s essential to emphasize that individual variations exist, and not all men will experience the same rate or extent of decline in testosterone levels with age.

Low testosterone can be also caused by various factors, including chronic illness, obesity, stress, and certain medications. Additionally, lifestyle choices, such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and a sedentary lifestyle, can contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction.

Whatever the cause, it is essential to understand that Low T is a medical condition that requires professional medical treatment – not miracle cures advertised on online or on TV.  intervention.

How Low T Can Lead to ED (Erectile Dysfunction)

Testosterone is the primary male “sex hormone.” It plays a vital role in maintaining sexual function, performance, and desire. Low testosterone can contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction. A deficiency in this hormone can result in reduced libido, difficulty achieving and maintaining erections, and overall sexual dissatisfaction.

Testosterone is essential for stimulating the brain’s receptors that produce nitric oxide, a compound that dilates blood vessels in the penis, allowing for increased blood flow and the firmness of an erection. Insufficient testosterone levels can result in reduced nitric oxide production, leading to difficulties in achieving or maintaining an erection.

Furthermore, low testosterone can also contribute to a decrease in libido or sexual desire, further exacerbating the issue of ED. In addition to its direct impact on erectile function, low testosterone can also lead to mood changes, including increased anxiety, stress, and depression, all of which can contribute to the development of psychological factors that hinder sexual performance.

This complex interplay of hormonal and psychological factors underscores the importance of addressing low testosterone as a potential underlying cause of ED and highlights the role of hormone replacement therapy and other treatments in restoring both hormonal balance and sexual function.

Why OTC Remedies and Supplements Do Not Work for Low T

OTC remedies and supplements for Low T lack rigorous regulation, and so they make claims that are questionable. Online and TV products do not address the specific hormonal imbalances that underlie Low T, making them an ineffective choice for those seeking genuine relief. The most effective approach is to consult a functional medicine specialist like Dr. Nishath Hakim at Prosperity Health in the Southfield, MI area who can diagnose Low Testosterone through blood tests – and recommend an appropriate treatment plan such as HRT.

How Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Treats Erectile Dysfunction

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a medically proven and effective treatment for Low Testosterone – which in many cases can improve the associated erectile dysfunction. HRT restores testosterone levels to their optimal range, helping to alleviate the symptoms of Low T and improve sexual function.

Why Bioidentical HRT Pellets are Ideal for Treating Erectile Dysfunction

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets are an ideal choice for addressing Low T and improving erectile dysfunction. These tiny pellets are custom-compounded to match each patients’ unique hormonal needs.

Unlike pills and shots, HRT pellets provide a consistent, steady release of hormones, ensuring that the man’s body maintains balanced testosterone levels, which can significantly enhance your overall well-being and sexual health.

“Bioidentical” low testosterone treatment means that the replacement hormones that we use are structurally the same as the hormones that naturally occur in the human body. This means they are safer, with less risk of side effects or negative reactions than with the synthetic hormone substitutes.

Additionally, BioTE bioidentical low testosterone treatment pellets are 100% derived from either animal or plant sources, making them completely natural – unlike other hormone substitutes on the market that are manufactured in a lab from chemicals.

Men’s bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are also more convenient (and less painful) than testosterone injections. And, with once-ever-six-month pellets, there are no daily medications to remember to take! Testosterone replacement pellets also let you say goodbye to messy creams or gels that can interfere with the enjoyment and spontaneity of sexual intimacy.
