BPH

BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA (BPH)

The prostate goes through two main growth phases as a man ages: the first phase occurs during puberty; the second phase begins at around age 25 and continues to grow as men age. Benign prostatic hyperplasia—an enlarged, but not cancerous, prostate—can occur during the second phase.

The most common complications with BPH include urinary incontinence and urgency, weak urine flow, dripping of urine, and difficulty urinating.1

There are many options for BPH; ask your health care provider about the best option for you.

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or impotence is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection for satisfactory sexual activity.

Experts have estimated around 30 million men in the united states suffer from ED.2 Studies shows complete impotence increases from 5% among men 40 years of age to 15% among men 70 years and older.3 Many factors may contribute to ED such as chronic illnesses, depression, aging, poor circulation, medication side effects, low testosterone, alcoholism, smoking, substance abuse, and nerve or spinal cord damage.2

There are many options to address this condition at any age, so talk with your physician about finding the best one for you.

LOW TESTOSTERONE

LOW TESTOSTERONE (HYPOGONADISM)

Testosterone is a critical hormone for sexual, cognitive, and body function and development.4 When the body does not produce enough testosterone, it results in male hypogonadism, which can significantly reduce the quality of life.

Hypogonadism affects an estimated 4 to 5 million men in the Unites States; although it may occur at any age, it is especially common in older males. Studies suggest hypogonadism in adult men is often under-diagnosed and unaddressed—only 5% of hypogonadal men receive an appropriate plan!

There are many options available to address this condition including lifestyle modification, reducing estrogen levels, increasing testicular output of testosterone, and testosterone supplementation. If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms, you may want to consult your physician for further evaluation and options.

SOMATOPAUSE

SOMATOPAUSE

Somatopause, a condition common among middle-aged and elderly people, refers to a decline in levels of somatomedin and the growth hormone (GH) somatotropin.5,6

Deficiencies in these hormones are associated with decreased vitality, muscle mass, mental and physical function as well as increased frailty, fat mass, bad cholesterol (LDL), and cardiovascular complications.7

Many studies have revealed that somatopause can be addressed with growth hormones. Talk with your specialist for possible solutions.
