CJA Balance Offers Online TRT & Advice For Men Suffering ‘Menopausal’ Symptoms
Do men go through male menopause? What are the signs of the so-called male menopause? Our team of doctors at CJA Balance explain all and can help you to feel more like your old self again.
Testosterone level drops slightly in men every year after the age of 30 while the levels of the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) increase every year. This gradual decrease in testosterone levels can lead to menopause-like symptoms.
You may be going through a form of male menopause – also known as the andropause – if you are suffering from one or more of the following:
- low sex drive/libido,
- low energy, poor sleep,
- sexual dysfunction,
- low mood,
- sweating/ hot flushes,
- joint pain.
There are a number of reasons why you may be experiencing these symptoms including poor diet, drinking too much alcohol, smoking, personal or lifestyle issues – and the qualified doctors at CJA Balance will work with you to get to the root cause.
Another reason may be because your testosterone levels have decreased. CJA Balance can help to diagnose your testosterone levels with a simple at-home blood test. Our TRT tests & treatments are available in the UK, Ireland and the European Union. We will also provide follow-up consultations with a GMC-registered doctor who can prescribe the right balance of medications to alleviate your symptoms.

What Happens If I Need TRT To Improve Testosterone Levels?
Before you embark on any treatment option, it is important you find out whether you have low testosterone, what those levels are, and whether there are any other underlying issues that may be causing your symptoms.
At CJA Balance, we offer simple blood tests that can be carried out at home to test your testosterone levels. We also offer a consultation with a UK doctor who is registered with the General Medical Council, and who can prescribe the appropriate medications, with follow up blood tests and consultations.
