What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy with Linda involves taking hormones to increase blood levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, or other hormones within your body to create balance. Hormone therapy is available in various forms, including pills, patches, injections, creams, gels, and pellets. Linda prescribes a hormone treatment that matches your lifestyle and goals. 

What are the risk factors for hormone imbalance?

Risk factors for developing a hormone imbalance include:

  • Aging 
  • Being over 40
  • Menopause
  • Stress
  • Steroid use
  • Some medicines
  • Tumors
  • Endocrine gland injury or damage
  • Autoimmune conditions 
  • Brain injury
  • Radiation therapy to the head or neck

See Linda if you develop new or unusual symptoms or have previously been diagnosed with a hormone imbalance and need help managing your condition.

Who is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy may be your solution if your hormone levels are off and you develop one or more of the following symptoms as a result:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Temperature intolerance
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Vaginal dryness or atrophy in women
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Depression
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Menstruation changes in women
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Infertility
  • Low sex drive
  • Reduced strength and muscle mass
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering things
  • Problems sleeping 

You might simply be feeling “off,” but can’t figure out why. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy is a simple, highly effective treatment that can ease problematic symptoms and dramatically improve your quality of life.

To determine if you’re a candidate for hormone replacement therapy, Linda discusses your medical history and symptoms, completes a virtual physical exam, and orders blood tests to establish your current hormone levels. She then customizes an effective treatment plan. 

What should I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

Your hormone replacement therapy may include taking pills, applying creams or gels to your skin, injections, or wearing skin patches. Women may wear a ring in the vagina to steadily release hormones throughout their bodies over time.

It’s also important to adopt healthy habits. This includes consuming a nutritious diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and getting regular exercise to minimize problematic symptoms. 

Follow up with Linda every few months or anytime you develop new symptoms to evaluate your hormone levels. Call her office with questions or concerns.
