Hormone Replacement Therapy In Glendale, AZ
Hormone Replacement Therapy
While for some getting older is a walk in the park, for most of us the natural declines that are commonly associated with aging can have a big impact on our general feelings of well-being and health. Our hormones control almost all of our basic bodily functions including our immune function, mood, appetite, and libido.
For women, drops in estrogen production can cause hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, vaginal dryness and itching, loss of bone density, and sexual issues. Studies have shown that female hormone replacement therapy is the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms including hot flashes and vaginal dryness. There are many options for women’s hormone therapy approved by the FDA that are identical biochemically to our body’s natural hormones. Additionally, studies have also shown that estrogen hormone replacement therapy in women can aid in weight loss, reduce abdominal fat, lower BMI, and increase a woman’s resting metabolic rate which can slow weight gain.
For men, a decrease in testosterone production can lead to hair loss, decreased sex drive, depression, decreased muscle mass, loss of lean muscle mass, fatigue, weight gain, and reduced erectile function. Testosterone replacement therapy for men is a well-known treatment that can increase bone density, boost libido and increase sex drive, increase facial hair and body hair production, stimulate red blood cell production, encourage muscle growth and improve workouts, and boost energy and reduce fatigue. Not only can male hormone replacement therapy improve a man’s quality of life and reduce undesirable symptoms, but it can also help with heart disease and reduce the incidence of dementia. While these symptoms and concerns are sometimes difficult to discuss, however, there is something you can do about it! Options for ED are available as well.
