MALE MENOPAUSE OR ANDROPAUSE
These signs and symptoms are referred to as “male menopause” or “andropause” and can result from decreased levels of testosterone or a relatively increased level of estrogen.
The pharmacists at Ivy Specialty Compounding work with healthcare providers to design compounded hormone replacement to fit a patient’s unique body and hormone levels. Personalized hormone therapy results in a more accurate treatment plan and a healthier outcome for men.
ED is a common problem that affects over 20 million males in the US.
ED can occur at any age and can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. While some men respond well to commercially available products, others require more personalized treatment. Ivy Specialty Compounding pharmacists can combine two or more medications, individualize dosing, and create a formulation (liquid, tablet, capsule, or cream) that is most effective for each patient.
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY
Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), commonly known as prostate gland enlargement, is another condition affecting men as they age.
Your doctor may prescribe a compounded prescription from Ivy Specialty Compounding. Signs of an enlarged prostate include urinary incontinence, weak urine flow, and difficulty urinating.
Males also may suffer from low testosterone levels as they age.
When the body does not maintain adequate testosterone levels, it can affect quality of life. Body function and development depend on this critical hormone for sexual health, cognitive operation, and other important aspects of good health.
