Men’s health services

Menopause doesn’t just affect women – men are also prone to a male equivalent of the menopause. A gradual decline or even sudden drop in testosterone can present similar symptoms to those experienced by women going through menopause.

Insulin Resistance

Up until recently insulin resistance has been poorly understood, but increasing interest and research shows that the diagnosis and early treatment or improvement of insulin resistance has huge benefit, both in the short term for the treatment of symptoms, and in the long term for prevention of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Our expert team can offer tests to estabilish your level or risk and provide advice and treatment to those who need it.

Hormone Implants

Conditions treated

Acne

Acne is the result of an inflammation of the sebaceous glands (oil glands). The subsequent spots are caused by oil, bacteria and skin cells becoming trapped in our pores. This inflammation can be triggered by our environment or by stress, cosmetic products etc., however our hormones can also play a big part in bringing about the skin condition.

Bowel Problems

The effects of the menopause and reduction in oestrogen can also have an impact on the bowel function. We can review bowel problems in the context of your other symptoms to bring insight and relief to common issues.

Burning tongue

Burning tongue is often associated with low oestrogen levels and is therefore a frequent complaint of peri-menopausal and menopausal women. Burning Tongue Syndrome can also be caused by: diabetes, a side effect of certain medications, an allergic reaction, depression or nutritional deficiencies (among other causes).

Excessive Hair Growth

Most women have fine hair in places such as the upper lip, chin, arms, abdomen or back. Having coarse or dark hair in these areas can however be a source of embarrassment affecting day to day life.

Hair Loss

It is usual for all women to experience a degree of hair loss throughout their life. In fact it is normal lose around 100 hairs a day. However, excessive hair loss, also known as alopecia, can be upsetting and impact on self confidence.

Weight Gain

Is your weight gain apparent all over your body or more visible in the centralised region around your abdomen? Are you considered slim and yet have a high body mass index? Weight gain is rarely due to just one cause and our expertise can help identify the combination affecting you.
