When BHRT May Be Considered

BHRT may be considered for men who are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance and have had their hormone levels tested to confirm the imbalance. Testosterone is one of the primary hormones that may be addressed with BHRT in men. Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, but some men may experience a more significant decline, leading to symptoms of low testosterone (also known as hypogonadism or Low-T).

In addition to low testosterone, other hormonal imbalances, such as low DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) or imbalances in thyroid hormones, may also be addressed with BHRT. A BodyLogicMD practitioner can perform tests to determine the specific hormone levels and identify any imbalances that may be present.
