Decreasing hormones and ED
There are a lot of factors that can contribute to ED, from lifestyle issues, physical conditions, and psychological concerns. Changes in hormone levels due to aging is one of the most common causes of ED. While not all men struggle with ED, all men experience hormonal changes due to aging.
When men reach their late 30s and early 40s, their androgen hormone levels begin to decrease by about 1% each year. And as they get older, more and more men will feel the effects of androgen deficiencies.
Androgen hormones play a key role in erectile function, and as levels decrease, you may begin to experience ED issues. Other problems arising from decreased androgen levels can include mood changes and a sluggish metabolism.
Hormone replacement therapy
Low levels of the androgen hormone called testosterone can be successfully treated with hormone replacement therapy. Treatments come in a variety of strengths and delivery methods, including:
- Skin patches
- Oral tablets
