Hormone Replacement Therapy

Low Testosterone (Low-T) and Male Menopause

When men approach age 35 to 40, testosterone produced in the adrenal glands and testes slowly begins to taper off. Additionally, men with high stress levels, poor diet / exercise regimen, or recent weight gain can experience an even lower level of testosterone production.

Testosterone in men is responsible for both physical and emotional wellness. Low testosterone can be particularly frustrating as these changes may occur suddenly and be very uncomfortable. Proper diagnosis and a tailored treatment plan with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can provide relief.

Menopause and Hormone Imbalance

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can alleviate the symptoms of menopause and restore the natural balance of hormones. Natural menopause occurs when the ovaries stop releasing eggs, and the ovaries finish creating estrogen. The result of reduced estrogen can produce the following: hot flashes, insomnia, irritability, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, and joint pain. Specialized testing and HRT can relieve many menopausal symptoms.

Adrenal Fatigue

Is adrenal fatigue real? This is one of the hot debates in the medical community. Our busy lifestyle of today does play a role in our physical, mental and emotional stress. Especially when we are under high amounts of stress for an extended period of time. The adrenal glands that sit on top of the kidneys are responsible for producing the stress hormone called cortisol. At times the adrenal glands can be overworked, known as adrenal fatigue. Specialized cortisol testing can provide more detailed information about how your adrenal glands are functioning throughout the day.
