What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis, which leads to bone density loss, is a condition that is typically associated with advanced age and is considered to be related to hormone levels in the body. For this reason, being aware of any hormone issues and deficiencies is of the utmost importance.
While the bones may seem to be indestructible and hard, the truth is that they are quite porous and are constantly breaking down and being rebuilt on a cellular level. Unfortunately, with age, the bones become less effective at regenerating and become increasingly porous and subject to damage.
During the aging process, men will naturally experience a drop off in testosterone levels. This leads, all too often, to a loss in bone density. This is precisely where a low testosterone specialist like Dr. Mikhail Berman can prove so helpful with Osteoporosis treatment. As a fully licensed and highly experienced provider, Dr. Berman has helped countless patients to treat their low t levels and prevent the ongoing deterioration of bone.
The Link Between Low T and Bone Loss
Although women are more likely to suffer from bone loss than men, that doesn’t mean that men are immune. In fact, more than two million American men live with this condition. Sadly, many of these men go undiagnosed for an extended period of time, either because the symptoms are not readily apparent or because they are hesitant to schedule an appointment with a physician.
As men age, testosterone levels dip, leading to a slowing of many of the body’s functions. Since men do not have female sex organs, they rely on testosterone as a means of producing estrogen. When testosterone levels begin to lower, so too does the estrogen. Believe it or not, it is estrogen which is primarily responsible for the maintenance of bone density.
The good news for men is that they are born with larger, denser skeletons. This means that andropause, or male menopause, is less likely to result in bone loss so severe that it causes excessively brittle bones. With that being said, strong bones are essential to maintaining a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.
