Andropause treatment provider reNEW MAN (renewman.com) wants to alert men and their families about the potential risks of undergoing male hormone treatment through their family doctor. Andropause, also known as male menopause is a condition triggered by a decreased in the male hormone testosterone. Too commonly men are not checked for low testosterone levels and instead are prescribed medications that treat individual symptoms, most commonly depression medications and medications to treat ED (erectile dysfunction). reNEW MAN has a national network of trained physicians dedicated to diagnosing and treating andropause symptoms and other male hormone deficiencies such as low testosterone (Low T).
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 5, 2009 -- Leading national male hormone replacement provider reNEW MAN is warning men about the risks associated with family doctors treating male hormone deficiencies. reNEW MAN specializes in treating the symptoms of andropause. Andropause, also known as 'male menopause' is a condition tied to deficiencies in male hormone levels that afflicts millions of men.
reNEW MAN is an established leader in the male hormone community. The company has a national network of physicians that are trained and experienced with treating andropause and other male hormone imbalances associated with the aging process.
It has been the opinion of record that reNEW MAN believes thousands of men are being misdiagnosed by their primary care physician annually. In particular reNEW MAN has found that men are more likely to be treated by their primary care physician for symptoms of andropause, such as depression and erectile dysfunction than the hormone deficiencies that are the cause of andropause.
Potential Concerns with a Family Doctor Treating Andropause:
1. They typically under treat patients
2. They do not always test for estrogen conversion
3. They do not protect glands, including the pituitary gland and testicles from atrophy
4. They focus too much on prescribing medications for individual symptoms, such as depression or ED
Risk of Overtreatment:
The worst case scenario to a patient is when the family doctor over treats the hormone deficiency. Family doctors do not always test, diagnose and regularly monitor male hormone levels in the same way a doctor in the reNEW MAN national network of andropause physicians does. Though the family doctor might be well intentioned, reNEW MAN has observed men prescribed dangerous, and in some cases, toxic levels of hormone medication from their family doctor.
Why Work with the reNEW MAN National Network of Physicians:
Doctors in the reNEW MAN national network of physicians are the heart of the reNEW MAN treatment program. These physicians have specialized training in age related male hormone deficiencies, including low testosterone symptoms. The reNEW MAN program:
- is the oldest, most established male hormone replacement program
- included a national network of doctors since 1999
- has over 60 doctors across the country
- specializes in diagnosing andropause symptoms and treating low testosterone in men
- provides a safe, individualized hormone replacement program
Jim Michels, founder of reNEW MAN explains, "Men are still becoming comfortable with the concept that their hormone levels are going to decline and they will experience andropause." He continues, "Having Low T is something that you cannot escape. While talking to you family doctor about andropause is a positive step, it is likely your family doctor doesn't have the specialized training to develop an individualized hormone treatment plan like a hormone specialist could. We (reNEW MAN) have been focusing on male hormone treatment and testosterone replacement for over 10 years and we understand the effect that low testosterone levels can have on a man."
"Whether you describe it as andropause, male menopause, low testosterone or Low T, the reality is that male hormone levels decline with age and that the process of controlling the aging process has seen a surge in online search activity," explains Keith Hanks of TwentySix2 Marketing. "For an entrepreneur and other types of highly producing professionals, the cost of Andropause treatment can have a measurable ROI in their professional life, in addition to an obtainment of the balance in their personal life they thought they would never experience again."
