With Hormone Therapy we address hormone imbalances by restoring depleted hormone levels it has the potential to completely renew a patient’s life and sometimes even their personal relationships. Hormone depletion is an inevitable part of the aging process for both men and women. Drastic changes in hormones can cause hormone imbalances, leading to many uncomfortable symptoms that detract from how much a patient can enjoy everyday activities.
Low serum testosterone, also known as hypogonadism or Andropause, affects roughly 39% of men over the age of 45. The prevalence of low testosterone increases with age. Studies have found that the incidence of low testosterone increases from approximately 20% of men over 60, to 30% of men over 70 and 50% of men over 80 years of age.
Testosterone replacement has been shown to improve a man’s energy, libido (sex drive), muscle mass, sleep, erections, energy level, and depressed mood. Testosterone replacement has been shown to also decrease body fat in men. There is data now to support that giving testosterone to a patient with low testosterone may increase their bone mineral density and decrease their risk for a bone fracture. It is important to realize that testosterone treatment is considered lifelong therapy, just like in other chronic conditions. Stopping testosterone replacement will result in a decline in a man’s testosterone level.
Hormone Therapy is given to some women whose estrogen and progesterone levels drop significantly because of the menopause. Estrogen and progesterone are hormones. HRT tops up a woman's levels of essential hormones.
SYMPTOMS THAT MAY BE HEAVILY REDUCED BY HORMONE THERAPY
What are the signs and symptoms of a drop in estrogen levels? Estrogen helps maintain good bone density, skin temperature and regulating moisture of the vagina. A drop in estrogen levels can cause:
Human growth hormone replacement therapy demonstrates that science and technology have just made the onset effects of aging an option, rather than an inevitable fact of life. After more than 15,000 growth hormone replacement therapy studies in the last 60 years, science has demonstrated that by maintaining optimum levels of human growth hormone (HGH), a naturally occurring substance in the body, users can naturally lose fat, increase energy, build lean muscle, sleep better, improve sexual performance and soften skin and wrinkles and a number of other benefits.
After numerous HGH clinical studies, the following was determined after six or more months of human growth hormone replacement therapy:
