Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right For You?
Hormones deeply impact our health – they play a critical role in maintaining our overall well-being. As we age, it’s natural to notice a gradual hormonal shift in both men and women beginning around their 30s or 40s. Hormonal Replacement can cause a variety of symptoms:
- Enhanced libido
- Decreased body fat and greater capacity to get in shape
- Reduced fatigue and increased energy levels
- Increased mental clarity and concentration
- Improved memory
- Consistency in moods
- Reduction in feelings of anger, nervousness, and irritability
- Relief from anxiety and depression
- Increased sense of overall well-being
Your first visit for HRT therapy is a chance to get personalized care and build an individualized treatment plan. During the visit, our team of professionals will review your vital signs, discuss any symptoms related to hormones, analyze relevant blood work results as well as examine personal and family history that may increase the risk associated with hormone therapy. Additionally, we’ll also provide insight into how insurance works in relation to treatments along with an overview of the financial aspects involved in getting started on this program!
Regular follow-ups for HRT Therapy are essential to ensure optimal results. During these visits, your vital signs will be assessed and monitored in order to determine if any adjustments need to be made when it comes to symptom control or side effect management. Ultimately, the goal is always successful hormone therapy treatment!
Hormone Replacement Therapy Nurse Practitioner
I was on testosterone injections for a year or so and felt awesome. Decided on my own to cease the injections. Not a good move. In a year’s time I’m right back to feeling terrible. Lack of motivation, energy, and libido is not good at my age(61). When I was on the injections, I lost weight, gained muscle mass, felt great with lots of energy and my libido was driving my wife crazy (in a good way). There was definitely an improvement in my life as a whole while taking the testosterone. My memory also improved
Prior to beginning HRT, both my husband and myself, were experiencing lack of energy, issues with sleep, irritability and loss of sex drive. This was happening for myself years prior, due to a hysterectomy and removal of my ovaries at age 32. So my early 30’s were especially frustrating – hot flashes, brain fog, loss of energy – I was one cranky mama! I was on oral replacements, but it really never felt completely managed. Our marriage was extremely affected, with my husband’s lack of testosterone, and we had actually filed for divorce! Our moods were all over the place. I’m happy to say, we toughed it out, sought marital counseling, and began HRT after his doctor discovered his testosterone level was barely existent. Is life perfect? No, but this is one area that can be managed well – when we feel better, we do better.
Since this program I have lost more weight than I could ever imagine. I’ve quit taking part of my medication and feel better than I have in years. I feel 10 years younger and move like it too. I would suggest this program for anyone who wants to feel better and lose weight. If I can do it anyone can.
