As you age, your hormone levels decline slowly over time. Our Hormone Replacement Therapy can help you fight the aging process and restore your health, energy, vitality.
Hormones that we test for include:
Testosterone – the primary male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate, and the promotion of secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair. In addition, testosterone is involved in health and well-being, and the prevention of osteoporosis. Insufficient levels of testosterone in men may lead to abnormalities including frailty and bone loss. Low T symptoms in men include: low libido, weight gain, foggy thinking, depressed mood, mood swings, inability to gain muscle mass.
In females, testosterone is also essential in sexual reproduction, mood, libido and metabolism. Some of the symptoms associated with low testosterone in women include low libido, affected sexual satisfaction, depression, lethargy and muscle weakness.
Estrogen – Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone. It promotes the development and maintenance of female characteristics in the human body.
Estrogen Replenishment Therapy can reverse the effects of low estrogen levels and may: control the occurrence and severity of hot flashes, improve mood and sleep problems that are due to hormone changes, reduce vaginal dryness, maintain skin collagen levels, prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis, and reduce the risk of dental problems such as tooth loss and gum disease.
Progesterone – Progesterone is especially important in your childbearing years. If you don’t have enough progesterone, you may have trouble getting or staying pregnant. Each month, after one of your ovaries releases an egg, your progesterone levels should rise. Progesterone helps the uterus thicken in anticipation of receiving a fertilized egg. If it’s not thick enough, implantation doesn’t occur.
Thyroid – The thyroid secretes several hormones, collectively called thyroid hormones. The main hormone is thyroxine, also called T4. Thyroid hormones act throughout the body, influencing metabolism, growth and development, and body temperature. If the thyroid is functioning subpar, a simple blood test can determine if you may need treatment which can ultimately help your metabolism.
Cortisol – A cortisol test is done to measure the level of the hormone cortisol in the blood. The cortisol level may show problems with the adrenal glands or pituitary gland. Cortisol is made by the adrenal glands. Cortisol has many functions. It helps the body use sugar and fat for energy and it helps the body manage stress. Cortisol levels can be affected by many conditions, such as physical or emotional stress, strenuous activity, infection, or injury.
Insulin – Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows the body to use sugar from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps keeps your blood sugar level from getting too high or too low. We can test your insulin levels. Insulin helps balance out blood sugar levels and keeps them within normal range.
Human Growth Hormone – Our bodies produce growth hormone, aka human growth hormone (HGH) in the pituitary gland which is responsible for cell growth and regeneration. HGH plays a major role in maintaining the health of all human tissue, including that of the brain and other vital organs. We can test your levels to see if hormone therapy may be beneficial to you.
Hormone Replacement is not something that is just stopped. When you come in for your consultation we will discuss the time and dedication needed for your specific treatment. Once again keeping you safe is important to us.
