Are you suffering from unexplained weight gain? Are you feeling tired, irritable, or anxious? Are you suffering from vaginal dryness? It might be time to schedule an appointment to discuss your hormones!
Hormones are responsible for keeping your body functioning properly. They regulate a wide range of bodily functions, like your body temperature, metabolism, moods, sex drive, and energy levels. Hormone levels naturally decline as humans age. Hormone replacement therapy replaces the hormones that you need to stay happy and healthy.
There are several possible causes of unbalanced hormones, like stress, injury, and prescription medications. Unbalanced hormones can cause an overwhelming number of uncomfortable symptoms for females, such as, weight gain, acne, hair loss, muscle weakness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, hot flashes, and night sweats. Many women think these symptoms are just signs of getting older, not realizing your hormones may not be working properly.
Most hormones can be detected in your blood. Hormone imbalances are most accurately diagnosed with a blood test ordered by a doctor. Hormone replacement therapy should not be treated with a one-size-fits all approach. Your female hormone replacement treatment plan needs to be tailored specifically for you. After beginning therapy for your hormones, your blood test should be repeated periodically to reevaluate your levels and ensure the treatment is working.
Hormone replacement therapy has been prescribed routinely for decades. At our anti-aging clinic in Virginia Beach, our hormone expert Dr. Jeff Arbuckle uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to treat symptoms caused by hormone imbalance and to protect long-term health for both men and women.
