Optimal hormone levels are a synonym of optimal health.
Today there are safe medical treatments, effective and reliable that seek the protection of human health as we get old.
In order to attain this objective, Preventive Medicine stands out as an essential instrument. It does this through the autologous* optimization of hormone production throughout our organism with Low Level Laser Therapy and/or Replacement Hormone Therapy (or compensation).
This process involves restoring younger hormone levels. It does this simultaneously in three forms:
a) rigorous medical supervision;
b) adequate diet program;
c) adequate physical exercise.
When we talk about TESTOSTERONE (male´s sexual hormone), there are a few questions that emerge: What are the normal values of testosterone in men? What are the optimal levels?
In terms of Total Testosterone, the baseline normal values that are regularly identified oscillate between 300 to 1200, but the answer is not that simple. In fact, these values are different from person to person and the same is valid to the parameters set by the health care practitioners.
The hypogonadism or androgenic insufficiency, affects more than 60% of men above 65 years old. These individuals present low values of free testosterone, however, hypogonadism is underdiagnosed and that is then reflected in a fast health decline in elders.
It is essential to establish a difference between normal testosterone level and an optimal one. For people with the same age, optimal levels and normal levels do not match. In this sense, medical literature encourages a reposition of the male´s sexual hormone levels that is equivalent to the ones we find in 20 or 30 year old men, allowing patients to recover their optimal levels of health and well-being.
The challenge rises in terms of defining a normal level and an optimal level of testosterone. In fact, what is normal for a 70 year old man is not normal for a 20 year old one. Obviously that if a 20 year old man possess a hormonal level of 70 year old one he will not feel well, but if a 70 year old man has a hormone level expected for his age, that would be considered as normal. Nonetheless, according to our medical literature, no individual should have the hormonal levels of a 70 year old.
The objective is to optimize testosterone levels in a 70 year old man to the level of a 20 year old one. A level of 25 in Free Testosterone can be understood as normal, although in reality it is very low. On the other side a level of 40 could be considered excessively high when in reality it is perfect, furthermore, it is our objective for a younger person. All medical studies involve hormonal doses that result in hormone levels at the higher limit of the physiological scale. These are the levels we find in younger healthy adults.
Optimal hormone levels allow us the opportunity to enjoy optimal health. Good levels of testosterone decrease the probability of cardiac occurrences and strokes, as well as the development of pathologies such as Alzheimer, diabetes and hypertension.
Moreover, according to studies the male´s sexual hormone as other benefits:
- Protecting us from cardiovascular diseases by diminishing the incidence of heart attacks due to the effect they create in the blood vessels;
- Improves good cholesterol and reduces the bad one;
- Improves good lipoproteins and decreases the bad ones.
The more elevated the testosterone level the better a man feels, the longer his life lasts and the lesser is the risk of cardiovascular disease.
As so, we ask you a simple question: what Testosterone levels would you like to have?
Signs and symptoms of low testosterone
There are diverse symptoms and pathologies that indicate low levels of testosterone:
- Low libido (reduced sexual appetite)
- Cardiac diseases
- Prostate cancer
- Abdominal obesity
- Diabetes typo 2
Restoring optimal levels of Testosterone can delay and stop the risk of contracting these diseases. Moreover, it improves the mineral bone density, renal function, muscular strength, muscular mass and humour. In resume, the quality of life is globally improved.
Complementation with Testosterone
If you are considering doing complementation with Testosterone, an experienced doctor in hormone replacement therapy (hormone modulation - texto sugerido para associar a “modulação hormonal) can help you in regaining your optimal levels, as well as reducing or eliminating symptoms and improving your quality of life without causing meaningful side effects.
