Low libido? Low mood? Muscles seem to be shrinking? Do you feel more fat depositing in your chest and abdomen?
Dr. Rajsree will first test your hormone levels to determine if low testosterone is part of the root cause of your symptoms. Andropause, or “male menopause” is a common phenomenon as men age, causing lower testosterone levels that can affect quality of life. Recently, Dr. Rajsree has been seeing many younger men who are experiencing symptoms of low testosterone and higher estrogen levels. This may be due to the epidemic exposure to “xenoestrogens,” which are hormone-disrupting chemicals from the environment (pesticides, plastics, food and personal care products) which mimic estrogen in the body.
Dr. Rajsree prescribes bio-identical testosterone replacement to optimize your levels so that you feel more youthful, energetic, and maintain your muscle mass. She will also optimize your nutritional status so that your body has the necessary nutrients to produce testosterone on its own. She will evaluate your exposures and counsel you on avoiding endocrine disrupting chemicals from foods, water, and personal care products to help reduce the effects of “xenoestrogens” from the environment. She provides you key vitamins to facilitate estrogen clearance from the body.
