Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement is often used in anti-aging medicine. As we age, the production of hormone decline. Hormones are essential to helping the body and brain function optimally.
For women, hormone replacement therapy can help ease the symptoms of menopause. Symptoms of menopause can vary from moderate to severe, and include a slowed metabolism, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, depression, memory loss, mood swings, weight gain and low libido.
For men, hormone replacement therapy can significantly impact quality of life. As a natural part of aging, men experience a decrease in testosterone production which can cause loss of muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, low libido, fatigue and thinning skin.
Hormones used in Hormone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is an essential hormone that is produced by males and females and is intimately involved in the regulation of sex drive, bone mass, muscle and bone mass. Testosterone deficiency can present as loss of muscle mass, low libido, irritability, decreased concentration, fatigue, and mood issues. Laboratory testing can be very helpful in determining if testosterone levels are healthy or if there is a need for replacement therapy.
