Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body that are responsible for controlling many of your biological functions, including:
Your endocrine glands produce the hormones your body needs to function properly. However, aging and underlying medical conditions can affect hormone production. If you have too little or too much of a certain hormone, you may need hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone replacement therapy involves taking supplemental hormones to rebalance your natural levels and ease the severity of your symptoms. In addition to treating existing symptoms, hormone replacement therapy can also reduce your risk for heart disease, osteoporosis, and other conditions a hormone imbalance can cause.
You may be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy if you have signs or symptoms of a hormone imbalance such as:
Women may also experience irregular periods, vaginal dryness, and infertility because of a hormone imbalance. In men, loss of muscle mass and erectile dysfunction are common side effects of low testosterone levels. Both sexes can experience a decreased interest in sex because of a hormone imbalance.
To confirm your symptoms are due to a hormone imbalance and not another medical condition, Dr. Jelena provides blood testing services in-office. She evaluates your hormone levels and reviews your overall medical history to determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
The goals of your hormone replacement therapy plan are to restore balance in your natural hormone levels and relieve bothersome symptoms.
Dr. Jelena can prescribe supplemental hormones at a dosage right for you. She offers a range of delivery methods for prescription hormones, including:
Dr. Jelena continues to monitor your progress with treatment and can adjust the dosage as needed. Many people benefit from short-term therapy to resolve their symptoms but you may need to continue taking supplemental hormones in the long term, depending on the circumstances of your health.
