When you work with Renew Man, treatment for your andropause symptoms will be individualized, safe, and effective. Accomplishing those three objectives is what we’re all about. Our highly trained doctors understand that male menopause is caused by a decline in testosterone, DHEA, and thyroid production. Because restoring hormonal balance is vital to overcoming your male menopause symptoms, your Renew Man doctor will develop a uniquely individualized andropause therapy program that will get you back to feeling like your younger, stronger, more virile self again. We will help you get your life back.

How Will Treatment Help Me?
Your Renew Man doctor will design an individualized treatment program for your unique needs and symptoms. Our goal is to have you feeling better and living a healthier, more energetic life as soon as possible. An important component to your program will be to make sure testosterone, thyroid, and DHEA are replaced to healthy levels. However, male hormone therapy that is done correctly is more complicated than just replacing hormones…
There’s More To It Than Just Replacing Hormones
As men age and hormones decline, they lose muscle mass, and gain fat. Losing muscle and gaining fat are undesirable in and of themselves. But there’s more than just that. There’s an enzyme found in fat called aromatase. The problem with aromatase is that it works to convert testosterone to estrogen as you age. Elevated estrogen will kill your sex drive, can jeopardize prostate health, and can cause other unpleasant symptoms like water retention and sore nipples. As part your treatment plan, your Renew Man doctor will counter the effects of aromatase by increasing testosterone and suppressing estrogen if necessary. This is a critically important piece of the treatment puzzle that far too many practitioners miss.
And there are others. Again…there is more to safe and effective male hormone replacement therapy than simply replacing hormones. Whether you chose to work with us or not, we can’t stress enough how important it is that you work with someone who knows what they’re doing.
Andropause Symptoms Are Not “Normal”
We know (from our clients) that there are many practitioners out there who will tell patients suffering from the uncomfortable symptoms of andropause that declining hormones are “normal”, and that andropause symptoms should be accepted as part of aging. We couldn’t disagree more.
At Renew Man, we don’t consider andropause symptoms to be “normal”, primarily because andropause symptoms are not indicative of health, and because andropause symptoms are treatable. We believe that as you age, you should be able to maintain your muscle mass, mental sharpness, energy, and sexual stamina—and that with healthy hormones, you will be healthier overall. This includes your heart, your brain, your bones, and just about every other part of your body.
Getting older is invevitable—getting old is not.
Will My Andropause Treatment Program Be Safe?
Male hormone replacement therapy is safe if administered correctly. In fact, andropause research over the past decade has focused largely on the health benefits of male hormone treatment, and has concluded that hormone deficiency and hormone imbalance are contributing factors in heart disease and prostate cancer, as well as neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s.
Conclusion: properly administered hormone therapy can reduce the occurrence of these chronic diseases, and at the same time make you feel younger and healthier.
Why Lab Testing Is Important
Hormone replacement therapy can’t be done effectively, safely, and responsibly without regular lab testing. Initial lab testing provides information that is critical to designing a hormone therapy program that is specifically suited to your body’s needs. Lab testing is also used to evaluate your body’s response to your treatment program, and to ensure that your hormones are at optimal levels. Our highly trained doctors know that a treatment program that doesn’t include ongoing monitoring is an inadequate and unsafe one.
A Little History
The relationship between aging and andropause was first recognized as a chronic and treatable disorder in the mid 1990’s. Efforts to treat andropause gained momentum when baby boomers refused to accept that andropause symptoms were just a fact of life, and when they began searching for tools to fight the negative effects of aging. Now men and women can maintain their activity levels, youthful appearance, and sexual activity well into and after traditional retirement. It is now possible to age well.
Since January of 1999, Renew Man and our dedicated team of doctors has been helping men just like you to get their lives back, and to feel their best.
