Within your body are numerous hormones that have specific jobs. The most well-known hormones are those involved with sex. They are estrogen and testosterone. Thankfully, if you are dealing with a hormone imbalance, hormone replacement therapy at our office can help.
For women, estrogen is primarily responsible for their menstruation, bone health, and proper circulation of blood. When women become older, estrogen levels begin to drop. This eventually sends a woman into the next phase of her life known as menopause.
Men, who primarily produce testosterone in their bodies, also tend to have a reduction in its production as they become older. For men, testosterone helps them to develop muscle and burn fat. It also maintains their sex drive and bone density and health. In its decline, men may gain weight more easily and experience a lower sex drive.
Both women and men may think that these symptoms of aging are something that they have to deal with. This is not the case. Hormone replacement therapy seeks to keep hormones at optimum levels, no matter what your age. As such, the therapy has seen great success for both men and women in regards to their health and well-being.
The delivery of these hormones can differ depending on how much is needed and other factors. Since hormones are a controlled substance, you can only receive them through a doctor. This ensures that you are only taking the correct dosage. As such, hormone replacement therapy is quite safe.
The advantages of this treatment have been phenomenal. For women, their estrogen levels remain elevated, which means they don’t suffer from the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause like dryness, hot flashes, and migraines. For men, they can continue to keep the weight off and build muscle. Other issues like fatigue, mood swings, and memory loss will improve as well.
