Men and woman of all ages can be affected by hormones that are out of balance. Such hormones include thyroid, cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEAs. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (bHRT) use hormones that are manufactured to have the same molecular structure as the hormones that your body makes as opposed to synthetic manufacturing.
Here is a list of symptoms that are commonly experienced when hormones are out of balance:
- weight gain
- loss of muscle mass
- hot flashes
- depression and anxiety
- low libido
- erectile dysfunction
- stress incontinence
- vaginal dryness and atrophy
- dry hair and skin
- water retention
- difficulty achieving orgasm
We use an individualized approach to evaluating, testing, and treating hormone imbalances. We will spend considerable time gathering information in consultation, perform physical exams, and use advanced laboratory testing to discover the approach that is right for you. If you need bHRT, we may use a special compounding pharmacy to create a tailored dose. Medication delivery may include patches, creams, pills, or lozenges.
