Sleep and Low Testosterone Levels

HRT can help reset your broken sleep patterns for good.

Low testosterone and insomnia in men

For many men, sleep problems are just a part of life. You work long hours while juggling finances, raising a family, and dealing with home life. If you are waking up in the night at 3 am or just can’t fall asleep in the first place, you may have a hormonal imbalance. Your hormones and your sleep patterns are closely linked, especially if stress is an issue.

HRT can help men with sleep disorders finally get the rest they deserve

The facts about testosterone and sleep deprivation

  • We need, on average, between 6-10 hours of sleep each night. Older adults (over 65) need less, between 7-8 hours per night. Anything less, and you start to develop what is known as sleep debt.
  • Poor sleep can cause memory problems, issues with testosterone and thyroid, depression and irritability, lack of motivation, slower reaction times, weaker immune system, high blood pressure, increased risk of diabetes and heart attack, low libido, and skin problems.
  • A disturbed sleep pattern is often caused by elevated cortisol levels, making you restless and unable to switch off your brain. Healthy thyroid and testosterone both help regulate cortisol.
  • As men get older and testosterone levels start to decline, many experience a variety of symptoms, including trouble sleeping and trouble staying asleep.
  • Both testosterone and thyroid hormones are essential when it comes to relaxing the body and getting ready for sleep.

How hormone replacement can help men sleep better

  • Exercise is one of the best ways to improve sleep. Testosterone therapy is proven to increase motivation and energy, making it easier to get back to the gym.
  • More muscle, less fat, and a healthier body increases endorphin levels, helping you sleep better.
  • Reduced depression, stress, and cortisol levels help you feel relaxed and at ease, making better sleep come naturally.
  • Testosterone improves red blood cell count, so oxygen is delivered more efficiently from your lungs to your organs leading to more restful sleep.

Healthy thyroid and testosterone levels help lower cortisol, ease depression, reduce stress, and improve restfulness, leading to a better night’s sleep. The benefits will only compound as your improved health leads to better sleep and this better sleep further improves your health.
