Lets Talk Hormones
The menopause transition or perimenopause period is years in the making. It starts when women are in their late 30s to early 40s. Like a reverse puberty, some of the main female hormones start to fluctuate and decrease overtime.
Symptoms include (but are not limited to):
-New onset anxiety
-Increase in abdominal weight
-Pain with sex
-Heavy menstrual bleeding
And many more.
Estrogen replacement during the menopause transition and menopause can greatly improve quality of life, health and energy. Estrogen repletion supports stronger bones, decreases chances of heart disease and stroke, and helps protect against age related dementia. Estrogen can also improve vaginal tissues, age related urogenital symptoms and skin. Furthermore, estrogen lowers total cholesterol and improves HDL levels.
Progesterone, another hormone that declines with age, can be protective against uterine cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. Progesterone helps with several symptoms including anxiety, sleep disturbances and mood.
Testosterone levels fall in both men and women with aging. Testosterone can improve well-being, energy, mood, strength, lipid risk profiles, lean muscle to fatty tissue ratios.
Bioidentical hormone therapy uses natural compounds already found in the human body, replaces these levels to treat symptoms, to levels that would more commonly be found at a younger age.
BHRT may include estradiol, testosterone, thyroid, progesterone, melatonin and DHEA.
BHRT acts on:
- Blood vessels
- Brain (mood, cognition, motivation and sleep)
- Endocrine System
Over 40 percent of men over 45 years of age have low serum tester one levels. This is luckily treatable. Testosterone replacement is linked to higher quality of life.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment that involves supplementing testosterone in individuals with low testosterone levels. Testosterone is a hormone primarily associated with male characteristics, but it is also present in smaller amounts in females.
TRT is typically used to address symptoms caused by low testosterone levels, which can occur naturally as a result of aging or due to certain medical conditions. Some common symptoms of low testosterone include reduced libido, fatigue, depression, decreased muscle mass, increased body fat, and erectile dysfunction.
Testosterone can be delivered through various methods, including injections, patches, gels, or pellets that are implanted under the skin. The specific delivery method is determined by a healthcare professional based on individual needs and preferences.
It's important to note that testosterone replacement therapy should only be prescribed and monitored by a qualified healthcare professional.
