Male and Female
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormone balance is vital for both men and women in order to maintain optimal health and well-being. For many, being well informed about health and wellness is becoming increasingly important.
Women’s Hormone Therapy
When it comes to a hormone imbalance or deficiency, thyroid problems, or preparing for menopause– many women are lacking knowledge. With perimenopause or menopause women often experience symptoms such as excessive weight gain, hot flashes, bouts of insomnia, loss of sexual desire, anxiety, dry skin and hair, and fatigue. Many try exercise regimens, special diets, and vitamins to try to fix the problem, usually without success.
Hormone Treatments for Men
Andropause, or low testosterone, is one of the most common problems plaguing American men. As age increases, many men wonder why they suddenly have less energy, less stamina, lower libido, and are putting on weight. The answer is simple: without proper levels of testosterone, your body is lacking an essential ingredient to maintaining your overall health.
Low Thyroid Function
Low thyroid function affects up to 40% of the population and is commonly under-diagnosed. Most medical practitioners rely only on lab values, but hypothyroidism is a clinical diagnosis based on symptoms and lab values. In 2002, the Society of Endocrinologists purported that the lab ranges testing thyroid levels were actually incorrect and hypothyroidism was being under diagnosed. Hypothyroidism can lead to decreased bone density, obesity, increased cholesterol, depression, fatigue, weight gain, constipation, hair loss, low energy, sexual dysfunction and other symptoms.
If you believe your health is being impacted by a hormone deficiency, hormone replacement therapy may be an excellent option for you. For more information contact Anderson Medical Aesthetics or call to schedule a free consultation.
