Metabolic Medicine Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment option to address symptoms that result from an imbalance in your hormones. Even the slightest imbalance in hormones can cause issues that negatively impact your life.

Hormone imbalances often occur due to underlying, untreated health issues, like a thyroid disorder, or as part of the natural aging process. 

Both men and women are at risk of experiencing changes in hormone levels as they get older. Women are especially prone to developing hormone imbalance-related symptoms as they make their transition to menopause, and estrogen production slows. Men experience a loss of testosterone as a natural part of the aging process.

 

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

Hormones are responsible for controlling many of the major functions in your body. When there’s an imbalance in your hormone levels, you can experience a wide variety of symptoms, such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood changes
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Irregular periods
  • Foggy thinking
  • Memory problems
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Unexplained weight changes
  • Sexual dysfunction

 

Due to these symptoms, you may find it difficult to get good quality sleep or stay focused on your usual routine.

As many of these issues relate to other medical conditions, it’s important to schedule a diagnostic evaluation at All Functional Health. Dr. Mark is highly experienced in diagnosing a hormone imbalance through a simple blood test.

 

What is the available type of hormone replacement therapy?

To restore optimal hormone balance, Dr. Mark uses bioidentical hormones, which are structurally similar to the hormones your body makes naturally and come from plant materials.

Based on the type and severity of your symptoms, Dr. Mark customizes a treatment plan using bioidentical hormones. There are several delivery methods for hormones, including oral pills, topical creams, patches, and pellets.

While it can take some time to find the right dosage for your needs, Dr. Mark carefully monitors your health and can make the necessary changes at follow-up appointments. As your hormones begin to level out, you can experience a significant reduction in your symptoms and an improved sense of well-being.

To find out if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark at All Functional Health today online or by calling the office.
