Hormones are powerful chemicals produced by your endocrine glands. Their job is to communicate messages from your brain that regulate essential bodily functions, including:
To work effectively, hormones need to be present at the correct levels. Any imbalance, whether it’s too much or too little, can have a significant effect on your health and mood. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help rebalance the hormones in your body to restore normal function.
Many conditions can benefit from hormone replacement therapy, including:
Menopause affects women in middle age when the production of the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone slows down. Loss of these hormones can cause a range of symptoms, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, incontinence, depression, and mood swings.
Both men and women can have thyroid dysfunction, but it’s much more common in women. Thyroid hormones regulate your metabolism, and you can develop serious health problems if the thyroid gland goes wrong. Too much thyroid hormone causes hyperthyroidism, and insufficient thyroid hormone causes hypothyroidism. Left untreated, thyroid disorders can be life-threatening.
Hormone replacement therapy helps by supplementing your hormone production to restore a more natural level of hormones. For example, replacing lost estrogen during menopause can relieve unpleasant symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats.
Taking extra thyroid hormone when you have hypothyroidism can dramatically affect your energy levels and mood, and testosterone replacement therapy can restore a more manly physique and improve your sex life.
Hormones are responsible for many of the high and low moods you experience and are often at the root of having a lack of energy. The providers at HealthyU Clinics can run tests to determine what hormone imbalances you have and prescribe an appropriate course of hormone replacement therapy.
For perimenopausal and menopausal women experiencing hot flashes or other signs and
symptoms of menopause, we will assess the candidacy for estrogen replacement and treat suitable candidates.
