In both men and women, hormone levels start to decline in the mid to late twenties. By age 30, hormone deficiencies can be significant enough that symptoms may become very evident. The best time to start increasing hormone levels is when you start to notice symptoms that affect your daily quality of life. If you are experiencing low energy levels, a decrease in sex drive and sexual performance, loss of muscle mass and weight gain, mental sharpness (brain fog), difficulty sleeping, or any of the other common symptoms, it is a treatment worth exploring. Dr. Brown will be happy to discuss your current situation and symptoms to help you further determine if Hormone Replacement Therapy is something you should consider.
