CCC specializes in hormone treatment of both women and men
Normally, Hormone-Replacement-Therapy, HRT, adheres to estrogen and/or estrogen + progestogen treatment of women for menopausal symptoms; either natural, age related or as a result of surgical removal of the ovaries. As a specialized clinic our approach encompasses a broader view of hormone treatment which includes different combinations of female hormones as well as appropriate use of testosterone.
Testosterone – also known as the ”male sex-hormone” –is important in both men and women. For many years CCC was among the very few medical clinics in the world offering testosterone treatment to men with symptoms of “male menopause”. Although inaccurately named this condition can be more precisely defined as a symptom complex associated with decreased metabolic effect of testosterone, most often age-related. Through a series of diagnostic tools CCC offers the best treatment available with regard to testosterone supplementation.
SYMPTOMS OF MALE MENOPAUSE OR ANDROPAUSE:
There is still considerable controversy over which symptoms suggest 'male menopause', but possible indications of the condition are:
- Declining sex drive
- Fatigue and less energy
- Decline in general sense of well-being
- Inability to concentrate
- Anger, anxiety, irritability and depression
- Hot flushes and night sweats
- Weight gain
- Sleep problems
- Confusion and nervousness
- Declining self-confidence and difficulty making decisions
- Joint pain
The above symptoms may suggest a condition related to decreased testosterone activity. The diagnosis, along with any decision to undergo treatment, should only be made after personal consultation and further examination by a physician with extensive knowledge about and experience with testosterone treatment.
