Q) I want my husband to get his hormones tested but he thinks it’s a waste of time. He just turned 50 and lately has been more tired and doesn’t have much energy. His muscle mass has been dwindling and doesn’t have that stamina that he used to. He says he is just getting old and that’s what happens. He is overall a healthy person, could hormones help him feel better?
A) Yes, as men age their hormones begin to decline too. These may include: testosterone, DHEA, human growth hormone and thyroid. All of these need to be checked and balanced. At IDinHealth, we do that by first by using natural stimulants, rather than the hormone itself, which is safer and often less expensive. Men may also develop a high insulin level, which is unhealthy and should be lowered naturally.
