Testosterone Therapy Can Improve Sleep Quality For You
You probably associate optimal testosterone levels with activities requiring high amounts of energy. You’re most likely familiar with how an ideal level of testosterone leads to better muscle mass and the ability to lift heavier weights in the gym, and how it can affect libido and therefore performance in the bedroom. But did you know that having an optimal level of testosterone can also lead to better sleep? With bioidentical hormone treatments at Revita Medical, men can experience better energy during the day, as well as improved sleep quality at night! Remember that sleep plays a pivotal role in your daily life, and when your sleep improves, your overall quality of life improves. If disruptive sleep patterns have become a regular occurrence, our natural hormone replacement therapy treatments can help you drift off to dreamland more easily.
Testosterone Levels and Sleep Quality
A majority of men are living very busy lives – working full-time along with maybe a side hustle, raising families, managing the craziness of finances in times of uncertainty, and just trying to juggle as much as possible into the span of a day. It’s no wonder that stress levels increase, and as a result, sleep patterns become disrupted, whether it’s not being able to fall asleep or waking up in the middle of the night and laying awake the rest of the night, feeling exhausted when the alarm goes off in the morning. Hormonal levels and sleep are very closely linked, particularly in stressful situations. Low testosterone has been linked to issues with insomnia, among many other symptoms, including low libido, brain fog, depression, lack of energy, decreased muscle mass, increased body fat, and even increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
Lack of sleep has been proven over decades to lead to a number of physical and mental health problems, including disturbances in testosterone and thyroid levels. When testosterone is at an optimal level, cortisol, often called a “stress hormone,” tends to remain balanced. However, problems with sleep often cause cortisol to spike, which in turn lead to feelings of restlessness and anxiety.
When men get older, their testosterone levels begin declining, and insomnia issues become common. Yet sleep issues don’t have to be seen as just a “normal” sign of aging. Bioidentical hormone treatment at Revita can help men reach optimal testosterone levels to promote allowing the body to relax, fall asleep, and stay asleep through the night.
Helping Men Sleep Better with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
More often than not, hormone imbalances are at the root of a variety of symptoms, including sleep deprivation. Bioidentical hormone therapy, such as that offered at Revita Medical, can help restore optimal levels of testosterone and bring you the restful sleep you deserve. Here are some of the ways our bioidentical testosterone treatment and improved sleep go hand-in-hand:

It is clear that testosterone levels and sleep quality work in concert. Optimal levels of testosterone help to keep cortisol levels in check, boost mood, and increase relaxation and restfulness. All of these will help improve your health all-around, and better sleep leads to even greater benefits for your health.
Tired of being tired and not getting the sleep you really need? Perhaps your physician has written off your symptoms as those of depression, and has prescribed at least one anti-depressant.
