Hormone Imbalance Symptoms
Hormone imbalance symptoms begin to appear as we age. The symptoms are different for men and women, but the treatment is the same: Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy. Let the Dallas Anti-Aging Institute consult with you today about our life-changing bioidentical hormone therapy.
Andropause (Also known as the “male menopause”)
For men, age-related hormone loss is known as andropause. Characteristics of a virile, healthy man with high testosterone levels include: a strong sex drive, self-confidence, thick body hair, ability to quickly get and maintain a strong erection, muscle mass, and a lean, strong body. Generally, men in their 20s exhibit greater competitiveness, aggressiveness in sports and business, high energy and a sharper memory and concentration.
- Creep up slowly
- Can be misconstrued as depression
- Often misdiagnosed
- Caused by a testosterone deficiency
Serum total testosterone levels range from 300-1200. If your level is at 301, your family doctor may conclude you are “normal” and require no treatment, even if your baseline had been at 900 for years. At Dallas Anti-Aging Institute we don’t simply check your total testosterone. We believe the more telling factor is what is available for you and what is circulating in your body. This is known as free and bioavailable testosterone. A man can be classified as normal in total testosterone and yet be deficient in these other two types of testosterone. In fact, after age 30 men lose 1-2% of the total testosterone per year. If you are under 30, you could still be deficient due to a severe stress, injury or because of certain health problems such as diabetes. The only way to determine this is with testing and a thorough exam.
Wouldn’t it be great to feel like you are in your 20s or 30s again? It’s possible with hormone replacement therapy. The goal of the Dallas Anti-Aging Institute is not to overdo it, but carefully get you to a more youthful level by replenishing what’s missing thereby reducing or even eliminating your symptoms.

Menopause is the transition period in a woman's life when her ovaries stop producing eggs, her body produces less estrogen and progesterone, and menstruation becomes less frequent, eventually stopping altogether. Menopause is a natural event that normally starts to appear for most women after age 40. The symptoms of menopause are caused by changes in estrogen and progesterone levels. The ovaries make less of these hormones over time. The specific symptoms and how significant they are varies from woman to woman. The answer can be as easy as our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and use of supplements, nutrition, and exercise.
Imagine feeling like yourself again! It’s possible with our expert hormone replacement therapy.

Have you recently experienced major stress in your life such as work-related stress, being ill or a death in the family? After this period of stress, have you felt as though you cannot seem to get yourself together, or at least back to where you used to be? Do you wake up tired, but are still "too wired" to fall asleep at night? Is it hard for you to relax or to get exercise? Do you find that you get sick more often and it takes longer to get well? If so, then you, like many others, may be experiencing the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
Ask yourself the following questions: Tired for no reason? Having trouble getting up in the morning? Need coffee, carbs, salty or sweet snacks to keep you going? Feeling run down? Experiencing higher than normal stress levels?
If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, you may be experiencing adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue can affect anyone who experiences frequent, persistent or severe mental, emotional or physical stress. It can also be an important contributing factor in health conditions ranging from allergies to obesity. Although it's common, adrenal fatigue has generally been ignored and misunderstood by the traditional medical community. Adrenal fatigue is a condition in which the adrenal glands no longer function at an optimal level. The adrenal glands are two small glands that sit over the kidneys and are responsible for secreting over 50 different hormones including epinephrine, cortisol, progesterone, DHEA, estrogen, and testosterone.
The 30 symptoms of adrenal fatigue include, but are not limited to:
- 1. Excessive fatigue and exhaustion, chronic fatigue
- 2. Non-refreshing sleep
- 3. Sleep disturbance, insomnia
- 4. Feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope
- 5. Craving salty and/or sweet foods
