Hormone imbalance affects men too – in fact, low testosterone is a common cause of irritability and grumpiness in men. If too much testosterone is converted to estradiol, decreased sex drive and increased breast size can result.
Saliva hormone testing is simple, accurate, and easily obtained. Four hormones make up the Male Panel: cortisol, DHEAs, estradiol, and testosterone. Interactions between these hormones are fundamental to health – which is why imbalances can have a significant impact on well-being.
Other conditions associated with male hormone imbalance:
- Apathy, depression
- Bone loss
- Erectile dysfunction
- Memory loss
- Weight gain
- Benign prostate hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
Why Order a Male Panel?
Men who experience symptoms like those above that are not relieved by mainstream medical interventions, may benefit from having a saliva hormone test. Knowing your hormone levels and how hormones work together may help your clinician find the right hormone solution for you.
