Sex Hormone Deficiency Complicated by Psychiatric Disorders

“A significant number of patients only partially respond to FDA-approved medications for depression. Successfully treating depression requires a holistic approach that includes the possibility of
sex hormone deficiency.”

Dr. Jeff De Wester

Depression and Sex Hormones

Regardless of whether you are male of female many of the symptoms associated with sex hormone deficiency and depression are similar.

  • Loss of energy fatigue
  • Moodiness
  • Loss of interest in sex

The similarity in symptoms often leads to misdiagnosis or sub-optimal drug and psychotherapy. Most healthcare professionals do not take the steps necessary to determine if a patient is suffering from depression alone, sex hormone deficiency alone or both.

For Men and Women Already Diagnosed with Depression

If your sex hormones are deficient, embarking on therapy to replace them can lead to the following improvements:

  • Increased libido
  • Improved mood
  • Improved self-esteem
    and self-image
