Case Study: 

57 yo male

CC: lowered sex drive, ejaculation takes a long time, low energy/motivation, abdominal weight gain

Symptoms: He is gaining weight even though he has not changed his diet or exercise. He is putting “a little less” into his workouts because he “does not  feel highly motivated.” He is more exhausted from the same workouts and he is not keeping his muscular tone or physique as easily.  He is finding that his ejaculation takes longer than previously which makes having sex a “whole long ordeal.”

Other: 

  • He is a relatively healthy man. He is on a low carb diet, aside from beer which he enjoys one a night, sometimes 2 on the weekends.
  • He goes to the gym 2x a week, once for a cardio workout and once for a weight workout.
  • He and his wife are both very busy and moderately stressed from their jobs, commute, and on account of raising 2 young teenagers. Usually they are both exhausted in the evenings and frequently end up falling asleep on the couch or going to bed separately.
  • He is questioning whether his partner is satisfied and feeling self conscious about the prolonged time it takes him to ejaculate.
  • Ideally, this man would like to improve his libido, metabolism, and mood. He is willing to make dietary changes, undergo a supplement or HRT treatment plan, and interested in lifestyle modifications.
