Hormones are responsible for numerous bodily functions, including metabolism, body temperature regulation, hair growth, physical development, energy, reproduction, and mood. They include:
When your hormones aren’t being produced as they should be, you can experience unusual or unwanted symptoms. You want your hormones to be balanced to optimize your health and well-being.
Hormones can fall out of balance because of stress, certain medications, aging, diseases, and many other reasons.
When women go through menopause, the period of time when fertility ends, they experience a dramatic shift in hormones. The result can be unpleasant symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, headaches, and weight gain.
The aging process also affects men’s hormones. Their levels of testosterone decline starting at age 30. Men go through andropause, where the male reproductive hormones naturally decline, often resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, depression, headaches, low libido, brain fog, and sexual dysfunction.
You may benefit from hormone therapy to help rebalance your hormones. Hormone therapy can help you feel vitalized, energetic, and motivated.
Hormone therapy isn’t right for everyone, so the doctor carefully evaluates your situation and symptoms to determine if it’s right for you. She’ll consider blood tests that provide information about your hormone levels and medical history.
Hormone therapy adds supplemental hormones to your body to help you achieve more balanced levels. With hormone therapy, any symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance reduce or disappear entirely.
Dr. Rich-Mazzeo, DNP, APRN, offers hormone therapy as injections, pills, patches, or creams. Your symptoms and appropriate and timely testing help determine the best application and dosing for you.
