This imbalance can cause a variety of aging issues. Once testing is done and can rule out exactly what imbalance is going on, hormone replacement therapy can help. There is no age limit to experiencing “male menopause.”

Testosterone is the main hormone for males and directs their sexual development, and it also influences the use of fats and carbohydrates. Estrogen is produced by the adrenal glands and testes. Testosterone can start to decline after middle age and can lead to numerous symptoms. If there is a problem, testosterone replacement therapy can help.

The Cause of Hormonal Imbalance

The cause of hormonal imbalance is when men produce too much estrogen and not enough testosterone. Lower levels of testosterone are caused by many different factors. Some factors include trauma, the use of certain medications, illness, and poor diet. Thyroid disease can also wreak havoc on hormone levels. 

The thyroid controls most cells in the body, leading to an imbalance in both men’s and women’s hormone levels. Another cause of hormonal imbalance in men is the abuse of recreational drugs. Marijuana, cocaine, and other illegal drugs can all cause low testosterone levels in men. 

Even more serious is the use of anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids are synthetic forms of male hormones that are used to stimulate muscle growth and increase body strength. Steroids lead to a host of symptoms including excessive growth of body hair, acne, a low sex drive, and infertility.

With such a wide range of causes of hormonal imbalance in men, it’s wise to go to your doctor in Miami at the onset of any issue so they can help you pinpoint exactly what may be causing it and help you overcome the issue.
