    Testosterone is the primary male hormone and as men age the levels of testosterone decrease. But age is not the only reason for a decline in testosterone levels, over training can also reduce levels. 

    This test can allow you to track your hormone levels and understand how they change over time or in response to dietary and exercise changes. Tracking your hormone levels over time can also tell you whether your hormone levels are decreasing with age.

      Why Profiles?

      When patients have hormone-related symptoms, it is usually not a clear-cut case of one hormone level being abnormal, or even one hormone system. In fact, because of the role that hormones play as chemical messengers to wake up the genome in specific target tissues throughout the body, it makes sense that all hormone systems work in concert with each other to maintain a state of balance. This could be likened to the instruments in an orchestra playing together in harmony; when one instrument is off key or playing too loudly or softly (analogous to too much or too little hormone), the overall harmony is affected. In a similar manner, the adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones work in harmony, and when one or more of the hormones in any one system become unbalanced, this affects the harmony or balance of the whole system. Symptoms common to hormonal imbalances in the endocrine systems are seen as the body struggles to maintain balance, but does not succeed. Without an overall picture of which hormone systems are affected, it is often difficult to know the best clinical course of action for correcting the imbalance. Hormone “Profiles” at ZRT are multiple hormone tests bundled into one convenient kit. Priced lower than the sum of the individual tests, these provide a more economical method to assess a patient’s overall hormonal status, giving a better picture of the hormone imbalances that are causing symptoms. Instead of treating a secondary hormonal imbalance caused by an abnormality in only one of the hormonal systems (e.g., low libido caused by low testosterone), you can address the underlying issues that lie at the root of the problem, and therefore, better guide your patients towards overall wellness.

      The Problem – Andropause and Low Testosterone 

      As men age, their levels of testosterone begin to decline, usually beginning around the mid-40s. This heralds what is commonly known as andropause, the male counterpart to menopause. While this is a natural part of ageing, the decline in testosterone production by the testes can be more precipitous in some men than others. Excessive weight gain, stress, lack of exercise, and many medications further contribute to a man’s ability to manufacture testosterone, resulting in even lower testosterone levels and leading to symptoms of andropause. These symptoms may include low libido, irritability, depression, loss of muscle mass and strength, weight gain, metabolic syndrome, erectile dysfunction, sleep disturbances, osteoporosis, and adverse changes in the blood lipid profile. Symptoms of androgen deficiency and low testosterone levels are used to establish a diagnosis of hypogonadism. This low testosterone condition was found to increase significantly with age in the Massachusetts Male Ageing Study. In the Hypogonadism in Males (HIM) study, hypogonadism was diagnosed in 38.7% of men over 45 years old who presented to primary care offices. However, while this is certainly an option, the solution to the problem may not be a simple case of restoring testosterone levels. For example, some practitioners find that testosterone therapy may be of little benefit unless problems affecting cortisol production are addressed first. The body’s response to stress is mediated by increased cortisol production, and this prepares the body for “fight or flight” by shutting down other processes, including testosterone production. Correcting disorders such as adrenal fatigue or chronic stress may therefore lead to improved testosterone levels and resolve symptoms, without requiring testosterone therapy. Increasing cortisol levels, along with several other endocrine changes, have been reported in men, highlighting the need to obtain a complete hormone profile before initiating any hormone replacement.
