Men and Women Can Regain Health and Vitality with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Even though men and women can both experience symptoms of hormone decline and imbalance, they tend to experience them in different ways. Atlanta Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialist, Jeffrey Donohue, M.D. develops customized plans for each unique patient based on age, gender, symptoms, and specific hormone deficiencies. These customized Bioidentical Hormone compounds are then formulated from natural ingredients to the specifications needed for that individual patient.
Common Symptoms of Female Hormone Imbalance
A persistent depressed mood can result from the imbalance of key hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, and cortisol. Depression may also occur in response to other symptoms like weight gain and low libido. In either case, determining which hormones are unstable and balancing them with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to lift a prolonged sad and listless mood.
This condition occurs when abnormal tissues grow in or around the female reproductive system. It often results when women’s bodies produce too much estrogen without enough progesterone to balance it. Symptoms of endometriosis include painful menstrual periods, internal scarring, and irregular bleeding. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy balances estrogen and progesterone levels to heal and prevent this painful condition.
Unbalanced hormones, stress, poor diet, and several other factors can make women feel chronically fatigued. This condition differs from just being tired since getting extra rest does not relieve it. Other problems caused by hormone imbalance, such as night sweats and insomnia, can contribute to fatigue as well. Natural hormone balancing with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to balance the hormones contributing to the fatigue so women can have the energy they need to meet everyday responsibilities.
Uterine fibroids happen when an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone causes tissue to grow outside of the uterus. Most women don’t realize they have fibroids until they have a gynecological exam, although the condition is extremely painful for some. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy heals existing uterine fibroids in addition to preventing new ones from growing.
Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
One of the most obvious signs of impending menopause is when women regularly experience hot flashes. These intense sensations of heat typically start around the neck and work their way upwards onto the face, causing discomfort and profuse sweating. Night sweats can be even more intense. Some women sweat so much that they must get up to change their nightclothes or the bed sheets. The poor sleep quality caused by night sweats causes chronic fatigue, depression, and many other health issues. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is essential to help women ward off this common problem of perimenopause.
Women with insomnia have difficulty falling asleep several nights per month. Some have no difficulty falling asleep initially but wake up multiple times during the night. This leads to a poor quality of life overall. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy that includes serotonin and melatonin, two important hormones that regulate sleep, is essential for any woman who wants to beat this problem for good.
An imbalance of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can affect both sexual desire and arousal in women. Some women also experience discomfort with intercourse due to hormonal changes. Other factors, such as weight gain and fatigue, may also play a role in libido. Bringing the primary sex hormones into balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to restore libido to previous levels.
Decreased Mental Acuity
Some women, as well as their doctors, passively accept problems with memory and concentration as a normal part of getting older. This doesn’t have to be the case. Hormones play a vital role in the functioning of the hypothalamus, which means that improving cognition with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is entirely possible.
Women who normally have stable moods may suddenly experience anger outbursts, crying jags, and increased irritability with family, friends, and co-workers. It can be distressing to feel like they’re no longer in control of their own emotions, especially when they have no intention of responding in an emotional manner. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy balances the hormones responsible for mood instability so women can feel in control again.
Most women experience some form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), but unbalanced hormones can make things worse. Irregular menstrual periods, bloating, fatigue, headaches, and weight gain are just some of the common symptoms of PMS related to unbalanced hormones. When over-the-counter medications fail to bring relief, women with severe PMS should consider the benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Atlanta.
A hormonal upheaval can cause some women to gain weight, even when they carefully monitor their diet and get plenty of exercise. An underactive thyroid gland is one common cause of this problem. Balancing the thyroid and other deficient hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy halts weight loss in addition to making it easier for women to lose weight.
Common Symptoms of Male Hormone Imbalance
Andropause, also called hypogonadism and male menopause, can contribute to a persistent depressed mood in men. Other hormone-related symptoms, such as weight gain and low libido, may contribute to the problems as well. Balancing testosterone and other essential hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men feel stable and energetic as they are accustomed to feeling.
The inability to get or sustain an erection is another common problem for men whose testosterone levels are low. This can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety as well as cause tension in intimate relationships. Thousands of men in the Atlanta area have received the help they need for satisfying erections by undergoing Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Chronic fatigue has a significant impact on quality of life. Stress, poor diet and exercise habits, and an imbalance of testosterone and other hormones can all cause this problem in men. Since bioidentical hormones mimic what a man’s body normally produces on its own, re-establishing balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can quickly help men to feel more energetic and positive about life.
When male babies are born, they retain a small amount of their mother’s estrogen in their bodies. The estrogen remains in place and doesn’t normally cause any problems. However, it can try to dominate when testosterone levels start decreasing in a man’s 30s. This may cause the unsightly problem of male breast enlargement. Reducing estrogen and increasing testosterone with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy eliminates this problem.
An inherited tendency towards baldness and a thyroid hormone imbalance are two of the biggest causes of hair loss in men. While the scalp is the most common place to lose hair, men may also notice hair disappearing from their arms, legs, chest, underarms, and groin area. Achieving balance of the thyroid and other hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reverse hair loss. Some men are even able to grow new hair.
Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
Women aren’t the only ones to experience hot flashes due to hormonal fluctuations. However, the symptoms of intense heat starting at the neck and working its way up are usually the same for both genders. Night sweats occur as well, although they are typically not as intense as they are for women. Men can find fast relief of these uncomfortable symptoms with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Stress and worry can keep men awake at night as can rapidly changing hormones. Eating a healthy diet, exercising, and reducing stress where possible may help men fall asleep faster and stay asleep all night long. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is also beneficial to balance melatonin and other hormones that regulate the sleep cycle.
No one likes to be around someone who is impatient and short-tempered, but men with a hormone balance problem may not be able to help themselves. Fortunately, bringing the affected hormones into balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to stabilize moods so men can enjoy their personal and professional relationships rather than feel annoyed by them.
Testosterone plays a key role in sending messages to men’s brains about sexual arousal. When this hormone is deficient, it interferes with the body’s messaging system so men feel in the mood less often. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to resolve this problem by restoring testosterone to the level that the patient had before low libido was an issue.
All of the hormonal changes men experience around midlife can cause previously solid muscles to weaken. Optimizing testosterone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps men to regain their lost muscle strength.
Loud snoring and gasping for breath could indicate sleep apnea. When sleep apnea occurs in men, the most typical cause is hormone imbalance. It’s important to seek help with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy before this condition becomes worse and possibly even life-threatening.
Hormonal fluctuations can cause aging men to leak urine or to have complete loss of bladder control. Needless to say, both problems are uncomfortable and embarrassing to have. Determining which hormones are out of balance and correcting the problem with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men have normal urinary habits again.
It’s frustrating for men to gain weight when they are eating healthy and maintaining a regular exercise routine. In many cases, weight gain occurs due to an imbalance of testosterone and cortisol. Balancing these hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps men stop gaining weight in addition to making it easier to lose weight if they so desire.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Testimonial
My wife and I starting coming to BodyLogicMD of Atlanta a few years ago as were both feeling the effects of our aging. She was pre-menopausal with slight weight gain and night sweats and low energy and I was suffering from very low testosterone as most men over 40 do and had low energy. My wife read about hormone treatment in a book by Susanne Somers and we searched out doctors in Atlanta that offered it and found BodylogicMD. After being on our treatment programs for about 90 days we both felt great and our symptoms went away and we have maintained our improved lifestyle for the past few years. We have referred friends to Bodylogic as well and they also have experienced improvement in their health.
