Male Hormones: Out of Balance?

When male hormones are out-of-whack

A few nights ago, my neighbor Justin showed my husband and I his latest purchase: a beautiful sporty Lexus.

We “oohed” and “aahed” in equal measures as we circled the car.

“You’ll certainly turn heads in this,” I told him.

“Yeah,” he sighed. “It’s just that everyone thinks I’m having a midlife crisis...”

Although we all laughed, I could tell that Justin was a little upset at this.

And I can totally understand that. After all, when we think about the female ‘mid-life’, it conjures up images of menopause, hot flushes, night sweats and often a very difficult time.

Mention the male mid-life stage and you’re more likely to get funny comments about mid-life crises, leaving your family, Harley Davidsons and ponytails.

So let’s correct a few myths.

Many people don’t believe that the ‘male menopause’ really exists, but it’s a fact of life that in their 40s, most men will have a drop in their testosterone and DHEA hormone levels.

The result can be periods of low energy, anxiety, a lack of concentration and difficulty sleeping, not to mention that men might start losing muscle bulk and hair.

Definitely not funny….

(Nor is it funny if you’re a woman who’s living with a man going through this phase....)

The good news is that there’s plenty to be done about it.

I usually start by taking a profile of my patients’ hormones (both men and women), using the Aptomed Comprehensive Hormone Profile which is a blood test , saliva and urine test.. This allows us to diagnose any problems.

If we discover an imbalance, we restore it with bio-identical hormones, which are identical to the hormones your body makes.

We’ve had some terrific success stories...

Azmi is a typical case.

A while back, he was struggling to stay awake in the afternoon. His kids had even told him they expected him to be asleep on the weekends, which really upset him.

A hormone test showed that several of them has bottomed out - frankly it was a miracle he was functioning at all!

But once he started taking testosterone (we use bioidentical hormones which are identical to the hormones your body makes, but are extracted from plants in a lab), his energy levels were restored.

He began to see an enormous improvement in the results he saw from his workouts at the gym. He even felt more creative.

So if you, or someone close to you, would like to check hormone levels, the next step is to book a consultation with us.

We’ll take a full medical history, discuss any symptoms and answer your questions before you take the test.

Then, depending on the results, we can work with you to fix any problems.

Hormone imbalances – in men or women – aren’t funny. They’re serious. Let’s make sure that you (or your partner) are functioning at your optimum.

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to : 1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats 2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to 3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) . With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at 6

Nicer Nose line, Higher nose bridge and Sharper Nose Tip

A technique for creating a higher and sharper nose line as well as lifting the nose tip and giving it a sharper tip is now available through thread lifting. This technique uses specially made threads with cox that has a greater strength in holding up the nose bridge and tip while creating a hold. Called the LUluko Noseline lift, it is a major breakthrough in creating a more beautiful nose via a non surgical approach. I consider this to be the best so far in non-surgical rhinoplasty. With this technique, I can give a higher nose bridge, a sharper nose line and a sharper nose tip in just 1 sitting and without any downtime to the patient. #nose #rhinoplasty # threadlift # nosetip # sharp nose
