Your hormone levels, whether its for your human growth hormone or reproductive hormones, help you to feel your best. When they are imbalanced, it can throw your body off kilter. Troubling symptoms can give you an indication that something isn’t right. If you aren’t feeling like yourself and your symptoms don’t go away or have no explanation, pay attention. You may be a candidate for hormone replacement.
How Do You Know if You Have a Hormone Deficiency?
If you have a significant drop in your hormone levels, your body is going to start talking to you. You may have symptoms that include:
- Exhaustion that isn’t remedied by rest
- Difficulty getting quality sleep
- No libido
- Weakness that affects stamina
- Weight gain due to a slowed metabolism
- Mood changes, including irritability, anxiety, and depression
It is normal to experience a drop in hormone levels as you approach middle age. If the decrease is extreme enough to be considered a deficiency, the situation can be treated with hormone replacement.
What is Involved in Hormone Replacement?
When it comes to a deficiency in hormone levels, pellet therapy is used to bring the levels back to where they should be. If the problem is with reproductive hormones, whether it is estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone, there are more options. Our doctor can help you to choose the best alternative for you.
How Do Can You Begin Hormone Replacement?
If you think you may need hormone replacement, you need to see our doctor. Our physician knows exactly what to look for when it comes to low hormone levels. Your visit will begin with questions about your symptoms, your health, and if there have been any changes in your life that could have contributed to how you are feeling right now. Our doctor will want to know how long you have experienced your symptoms and how severe they are. You can expect a physical assessment to check your vitals and look for any areas of concern. A blood test can determine if your hormones are the problem and may pinpoint other problems. If you do have extremely low hormone levels, our doctor will prescribe a dosage of replacement hormones that are right for you.
