What to do?
The hormonal levels in men, as in women reduce at around the age of 30.
The hormones are in charge of a fundamental role at our body, being responsible for the maintenance of our metabolic structure and the functioning of our body.
Currently, the average life expectancy has increased a lot, being 84 years old for men at the moment.
If with anti-ageing and hormonal therapies we live more, that is already an extra.
The objective is to live with good quality whilst we are alive. Extending life without quality is an exorbitant waste of money.
We live in a society where it is spent numerous resources to extend pain.
There is the need to act towards preventing it.
Our objective is to make life the most functional, productive and pleasant as possible and not only extending the average longevity.
Doing the “hormonal profile” is knowing your state of metabolic functionality, your biological age, your body’s state of ageing, being able to act as early as possible.
When to do it?
During our 30s we should take our “hormonal photography”, so that we can later on restore these levels, without exceeding it.
These will the values that are considered as our reference values, normal only for us.
Failing to do such, you should do it as soon as possible. The laboratory is a precious help for the diagnosis and control of any therapy that might be prescribed.
How to do it?
By taking a blood sample. The laboratory will define the levels of certain hormones and other fundamental criteria for the maintenance of your quality of life.
We always have to think of hormones as an orchestra.
They have to be in tune with one another, without forgetting that by treating one, we can be “messing” the other around, or more frequently, not having any other therapeutic action by deficit of other concomitantly hormones.
For example testosterone.
It is fundamental the monitoring of this hormone in men. Not only due to being connected to the erectile/impotence dysfunction, a very common issue, affecting approximately 50% of men in between 40 to 49 years old, but because testosterone is a very important hormone for the brain, the skeleton, the muscles (cardiac, intestines, bladder…) as well as the sexual hormone with great impact in our wellbeing.
