Understanding Male Hormones
The Importance of Testosterone in Men. Testosterone is the life source for the male body, which is filled with testosterone receptors. If testosterone levels dip, these receptors will not receive enough testosterone and results in Low Testosterone symptoms including:
- Loss of Concentration
- Muscle Loss
- Weight Gain
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Lower Sex Drive
- Hair Loss
- Night Sweats
Controlling Estrogen in Men
Small amounts of estrogen improve cardiovascular health, enhance brain function, and prevent osteoporosis. But many men have too much which can result in symptoms like fatigue, low sex drive, and belly fat as well as an increased risk for prostate cancer.
Elevated estrogen usually occurs as testosterone declines, because as testosterone declines, most men will accumulate fat–primarily belly fat. As men age, their bodies often exchange testosterone for estrogen at an increased rate. Estrogen, in turn, causes belly fat. It becomes a vicious circle which is why raising testosterone levels without controlling estrogen is counterproductive, and why losing weight is nearly impossible if your hormones are out of whack.
Our doctors control estrogen as part of our treatment programs by placing men on an estrogen blocker as needed. Estrogen blockers effectively suppress estrogen conversion at the same time as we’re increasing testosterone levels, thereby eliminating existing symptoms, and preventing future ones.

Testosterone is a naturally-occurring steroid hormone both for men and women, though it occurs in higher concentrations for men. Testosterone is derived from cholesterol and is produced in the testes, ovaries, and adrenal glands. It is primarily responsible for the development of the male reproductive system and plays a key part in growth of body hair, muscle mass, fat distribution, deepening of the voice, and libido. Some testosterone in the body is converted into estradiol, a type of estrogen, and some is converted into dihydrotestosterone in the body, which is associated with prostate enlargement and baldness.
It is normal for testosterone levels to decrease with age. This can result from declining testicular function and/or modifiable lifestyle factors, such as how much exercise you get or the quality of your diet. Some men, however, struggle with low testosterone independent of normal age-related decline. There are many possible causes for low testosterone, including diabetes, alcohol abuse, genetic disorders, medications, metabolic disorders, and/or trauma, but some men may never find out the cause of their low testosterone levels. This medical condition should be treated under the supervision of a trained healthcare professional.
Side effects of testosterone replacement therapy are usually linked with dosage. Your dosage needs may change over time, so always communicate any side effects you experience to your Youthful MD physician or NP as soon as possible. Side effects may include: * Irritability – Increased testosterone levels may also increase irritability and/or aggressiveness as the patient adjusts to a higher testosterone level. These mood changes generally resolve themselves as testosterone levels balance out. * Enlarged prostate – Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the medical term for an enlarged prostate. Supplementing testosterone may worsen BPH, especially in patients over 50. If you have a history of prostate cancer, testosterone therapy is not the right treatment for you. * Increased red blood cell count – This side effect can actually be a benefit for patients with low blood counts (anemia), but it can cause blood vessel blockage and may lead to a heart attack or stroke. This is why it’s important to stay in contact with your healthcare provider while undergoing hormone therapy. * Fluid retention – An uncommon side effect, patients with a history of heart failure or kidney disease sometimes experience excessive fluid retention. * Infertility – Male infertility is most common in younger patients with reduced sperm production, but is usually reversible after cessation of testosterone therapy. * Sleep apnea – A disruption of regular breathing during sleep, sleep apnea is an uncommon side effect of testosterone therapy. * Other side effects – Some patients experience mild side effects, such as oily skin, acne, flushing, and increased body hair. Patients occasionally report redness or itching around the injection or insertion site. These symptoms tend to diminish as your body acclimates to treatment.
Testosterone levels (also referred to as T levels) are considered normal between 350ng/dL and 1,000ng/dL. However, even if you fall in the “normal” range, you may still have low T for your body. Basically, your brain, hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and testicles all work together to stabilize your T levels in a normal range. If your testosterone is below normal for your body, your brain will signal your testicles to produce more until your testosterone levels have reached an adequate range. If any part of this process is malfunctioning, it can reduce your testosterone production and result in low T symptoms.
It depends. The amount of body hair you have is primarily due to genetics and hereditary factors. While men with low testosterone may experience reduced body hair, testosterone therapy does not stimulate hair growth anywhere that you didn’t previously have hair.
