Metabolic syndrome can be caused by a hormonal imbalance in men. Metabolic syndrome is a group of symptoms that can increase the risk of elevated blood sugar, abnormal heart conditions, and stroke. Learn more about the male metabolic syndrome symptoms, its causes, and how BioTE® Medical may be able to help men who find themselves in need of hormone therapy below.
Metabolic syndrome consists of several conditions that increase the risk of abnormal heart conditions, stroke, and elevated blood sugar. Metabolic syndrome symptoms include high blood pressure and high triglycerides.
There are few early male metabolic syndrome symptoms, but elevated blood sugar and high blood pressure are advanced metabolic syndrome symptoms in men.
Many sufferers of male metabolic syndrome symptoms have had little luck adapting their lifestyles to fight their condition. The recommended self-care of metabolic syndrome symptoms can involve physical exercise, dietary modification, blood glucose monitoring, quitting smoking, and anti-diabetic medication. If these remedies are not enough, BioTE Medical’s method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, may help alleviate metabolic syndrome symptoms in men.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is a treatment for metabolic syndrome symptoms that have been brought on by hormonal imbalance. BHRT differs from conventional hormone replacement therapy in that the hormones used for BHRT are identical to the ones found within the human body. BioTE Medical’s BHRT may help relieve the symptoms of metabolic syndrome if lifestyle changes are not enough.
Since one of the causes of metabolic syndrome can be unbalanced hormones, BHRT may be able to help reduce metabolic syndrome symptoms in men by balancing the hormones in the body.
