Who Can Benefit from Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Adults lose a staggering amount of hormones due to aging. These depleted hormones leave quite an impact on physical and mental well-being. Countless bodily processes rely on hormones to work optimally, so when things are off-kilter, you’re sure to feel its effects. But rest assured that relief is possible. When you’re struggling to manage symptoms of a hormone imbalance, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy provides the relief you need. But how can you tell if this treatment would be beneficial for you?

Custom Dosing Pharmacy has the solutions you need to live well. If you have the symptoms of a hormone imbalance, talk to our pharmacists at a private wellness consultation to see which solutions may work for you. 

Women Going Through Menopause

Menopause is the time when a woman’s menstrual cycle ends. Estrogen and progesterone decline, leading to hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats and mood changes. When these symptoms interfere with daily life, hormone replacement therapy is a feasible option to relieve the discomfort. Restoring hormone levels limits the symptoms, letting you feel better. 

Bioidentical hormones can be taken in several forms depending on the symptoms. For instance, if the primary symptom is vaginal dryness and sexual dysfunction, a topical cream may be prescribed. Systemic issues, such as hot flashes, typically require a pill to be taken orally. 

Women at Risk of Osteoporosis

Shifting hormone levels can increase the risks of osteoporosis, a condition in which the bones become weak and brittle. Tinning in the bones can increase the chances of fractures and other severe injuries, and since the risk of falling increases with age, this can lead to potentially dangerous health issues. Some studies have shown that hormone replacement therapy can reduce the impact of osteoporosis. If a woman is at risk for osteoporosis-related complications, she may try bioidentical hormone replacement to help reduce the possible complications. Talk to our pharmacists to learn more. 

Men With Hormone Imbalances

While most people may think of menopause as the prime example of what happens when hormone levels are depleted, men can experience hormone imbalances, too. If you’ve noticed increased balding, severe fatigue, too much body fat and not enough muscle mass, there’s a chance that your testosterone levels are depleting due to age. While testosterone naturally decreases in older men, shifting hormone levels can create notable discomfort, and you deserve relief. 

Testosterone replacement therapy is excellent in restoring a man’s vitality and strength. Say goodbye to fatigue and other troublesome symptoms using bioidentical hormones. Other benefits include better sleep, improved sexual function and a reduced risk of certain chronic health issues, such as heart disease and diabetes.
