Understanding Hormone Replacement Therapy

Importance of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Women are not the only ones who experience hormone deficiencies. On the contrary, both Men and Women are candidates for Hormone Replacement Therapy. For women, the most common cause of hormone deficiency is pre-menopause and menopause. Whereas men often experience andropause, often referred to as Low T. The testosterone levels in men begin dropping in their 20's and continue to do so until the end of their lives. When this happens, many men experience noticeable changes to their overall well-being. The symptoms caused by low testosterone levels are a serious matter and often include lack of sex drive, increased abdominal fat, erectile dysfunction, depression, and loss of lean mass, to name just a few.

Hormone replacement treatment options are available for both men and women. These treatments range from Sermorelin Therapy, progesterone, estrogen to Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) to HCG,

At Unity Health, we take the time to thoroughly understand your current levels through an extensive blood panel and from there determine the root cause of low hormone levels through a patient health discovery so we can treat them effectively.
