Hormonal imbalances and hormone losses may occur at different stages within our lives. These issues may happen for numerous reasons, including menopause, thyroid problems, or a hysterectomy. These imbalances or losses may cause a plethora of problematic symptoms such as mood swings, night sweats, weight gain, hot flashes, headaches, a reduction in bone mass, and more. Whether you are experiencing thyroid hormone deficiencies, going through menopause, or have recently had a hysterectomy, you may be wondering what your available treatment options are, if any, when it comes to replenishing the hormones that you are losing. Luckily, you will be able to restore balance with hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone replacement therapy consists of the use of hormones that work to replicate your body’s natural hormones. These synthetic hormones are offered in different forms and may assist you in feeling like yourself once more. If you are evaluating the available possibilities for treating these symptoms, here are a few things to contemplate and thoroughly go over with our team of professionals.
Hormone replacement therapy works by providing your hormone with the hormones that it needs. It may even help you lose weight. If you have been dealing with unexplained weight gain, a hormone imbalance may be the underlying cause of your problem. This is likely the culprit if you are unable to lose the pounds no matter how much you alter your diet and no matter how many miles you run. With hormone replacement therapy, your hormones will level out and your weight is likely to drop like it should.
Knowing what symptoms are related to hormone loss or hormone imbalance is important to identifying if this is your problem, or if your symptoms are related to a different illness or health condition. If you are experiencing unexplained weight gain, fatigue, headaches, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, or a varying combination of these, you are likely going through hormonal changes.
