Millions of women and men experience a decrease in hormone production, and it can happen earlier than you may think. While hormones tend to decline significantly throughout your 40s and 50s, it can happen in your late 20s or 30s. When your hormones dip, you can experience a range of uncomfortable symptoms that impact your daily life.
At Renew Infusions East Valley Serenity Health in Gilbert, Arizona, our team offers primary care and wellness services to keep you feeling and functioning your best, and this includes hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men and women with hormone imbalance.
We check your hormones using simple blood tests, and recommend treatment based on the results. In this post we discuss why you may want to consider hormone replacement therapy.
Each year 1.3 million women make the transition to menopause. While you’re officially in menopause when you haven’t had a period for at least 12 months, the natural transition to menopause isn’t abrupt. It happens over several years, and during this time it’s common to experience the following symptoms:
For some women, these symptoms are severe enough to significantly interfere with work, social, and family life. You don’t have to simply put up with a diminished quality of life as you transition through menopause. If these symptoms ring true for you, you can benefit from HRT, which is the most effective treatment for menopause symptoms.
Testosterone deficiency isn’t just your father’s problem. Lower than normal testosterone can strike men in their 40s and even mid 30s. The risk of testosterone deficiency increases significantly after the age of 45.
When your body fails to make enough testosterone, you may experience:
Men produce estrogen as well, though at much lower levels than women. A decline in testosterone can further cause problems by creating an imbalance in testosterone and estrogen. If your low testosterone is affecting your well-being, we may recommend HRT.
Hormone deficiency doesn’t always cause significant, overt symptoms. You may notice that you just don’t feel like yourself. Perhaps you’ve lost interest in activities that you used to enjoy, or you’ve become more withdrawn than usual. Those around you may have noticed a difference as well.
Even if you have non-specific symptoms, if you don’t feel quite right and you have hormone imbalance, you can benefit from restoring your hormone levels to normal.
