The Male Anti-Aging Panel is a comprehensive set of tests which measure the overall chemistry and hormone levels commonly linked to male aging, which is useful in determining therapies that can slow the aging process, as well as serving as a method of monitoring progress when these therapies are already being applied.
Who May Need a Male Anti-Aging Panel?
During the typical aging process, specific hormones in males decrease, often resulting in signs attributed to the aging process. These hormones help men maintain their overall health, fitness and youthful appearance. The benefit of having a Male Anti-Aging Panel performed is that it can be utilized as a means of creating therapies which specifically address hormone deficiencies in a patient, and can either combat or delay the aging process through hormone replacement.
What Should I Expect from My Male Anti-Aging Panel?
Along with giving an overall analysis of a male patient’s general health, a Male Anti-Aging Panel can help a physician and their patient determine what hormone levels are deficient, which gives physicians the ability to approach hormone replacement treatments specific to the individual. It can also offer male patients information on physical symptoms they may be experiencing, as well as whether or not they can be attributed to aging or might be related to another condition.
Physical and Hormonal Changes in Older Men
Your sense of well-being -- your body's ability to respond and function normally -- depends on various organ systems. The organ systems most affected by aging are:
- cardiovascular system: heart and blood vessels
- genitourinary system: kidneys, bladder, genitals, and sexual organs (penis, testicles, and prostate)
- musculoskeletal system: bones, muscles, and joints
- skin and connective tissues beneath the skin
To function properly, these organ systems depend on:
- a good circulatory system that supplies blood to carry oxygen, nutrients, and hormones (chemicals made by the body) to the tissues of the body
- a healthy nervous system, which ensures an alert mind, good sight and hearing, and efficient response to other bodily needs such as respiration (breathing) and digestion.
The health and well-being of men over 45 years old depend largely on whether they have in the past:
- gotten adequate sleep and exercise
- eaten healthy foods
- avoided abuse of nonprescribed drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
Changes in Older Male Body Systems
Men who are not very active lose muscle mass and flexibility as they age. However, you can keep your muscles strong and improve your health by keeping active and exercising regularly. Talk with your health care provider before starting a new exercise program.
Skin changes with age. It grows thinner, takes longer to heal when injured, gets wrinkles, and loses some of its elastic quality. Many changes to the skin that seem to be from aging are actually caused by over-exposure to the sun. Wearing a 30 SPF or higher sunscreen now can help prevent skin damage and problems later in life.
Changes in vision and hearing usually are a part of aging. As you age, your vision may slowly decrease. Glasses, or possibly surgery, can often correct the cause for this. Hearing loss may develop gradually and often goes untreated. It is important to have your vision and hearing checked each year.
You may need to adjust the medicines you take, and limit the amount of alcohol you drink to no more than 1 drink per day. As you age, these substances stay in your system longer.
Changes in Older Male Hormones
Testosterone levels decrease normally with age. This may cause men to have erectile problems or to lose interest in sex. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may improve sex drive, sexual performance, energy, and mood. It is also said to help build bone and muscle mass. TRT is available as pills, patches, gels, creams, shots, or it can be implanted under the skin.
TRT may not be right for you if you have high cholesterol, heart disease, or are at risk for prostate cancer. TRT may enlarge the prostate or increase your risk for prostate cancer. Take testosterone only if your health care provider approves. Men taking testosterone should be examined for signs of a tender or enlarged prostate. If you have a family history of prostate cancer, you may want to have a PSA (prostate specific antigen) test.
Male Aging and Sexual Response
As men grow older, many continue to have active, enjoyable sexual lives. However, some men find the quickness and intensity of their sexual responses decreased:
- Erections during sleep and at the time of waking are less frequent.
- The erection takes longer to achieve and is usually less rigid.
- Penetration can be difficult without a lubricant.
- An erection is more easily lost.
- Ejaculation is less forceful in older men and may become seepage.
What is a male anti-aging panel?
A male anti-aging panel includes a set of tests that measure the overall chemistry and hormone levels commonly linked to male aging. This panel can be conducted to determine or monitor therapies that can slow the aging process or assess aging itself.
Who may need a male anti-aging panel?
This panel is for men who want to know if they have any hormone deficiencies and evaluate their state. If hormone levels are abnormal, therapies, such as hormone replacement, can be evaluated to address the issue or delay the aging process.
What should I expect from my male anti-aging panel?
A male anti-aging panel can provide information on hormone levels that impact male health. The test results can help determine:
- What hormone deficiencies are present
- The necessity of a treatment plan that's specific to the individual
- The presence of physical symptoms caused by natural aging and other conditions
How often should anti-aging testing be done?
It is recommended to have an anti-aging test yearly in order to stay healthy and decide on treatment for premature aging if needed.
What are the benefits of anti-aging testing?
You'll gain real-time information about any age-related damage, allowing doctors the chance to address issues before they become serious and keep you looking and feeling vibrant in your later years.
