Hormone Replacement Therapy

Many underlying health problems can be traced back to imbalances in the endocrine system, which regulates and releases the body’s hormones.

Everyone, regardless of age, can have hormone imbalances–but with the right treatment plan, hormone replacement therapy is very effective and helps your body recover, heal and regenerate properly.

Common Hormone Treatments

Consulting your Allure Health care provider about your hormone levels is a great way to ensure you are improving and maintaining your health, especially when trying to treat persistent health issues or chronic illnesses.

Below are many of the common hormone treatments we help patients with, as well as some symptoms and deficiencies that are treated through each type of hormone replacement therapy.

Menopause Hormone Therapy

During menopause, many women experience moderate to severe symptoms from the loss of estrogen in the body. Sex hormone replacement treatments are effective at lessening the impact of these symptoms. The most common symptoms of menopause treated with hormone therapy include:

  • Severe hot flashes
  • Poor Sleep
  • Chills
  • Mood Changes
  • Weight Gain
  • Irregular Periods
  • Dry Skin

Low Testosterone Treatment

While testosterone naturally declines as a man ages, some symptoms develop irregularly that can be treated with sex hormone replacement therapy. Some of these include:

  • Fatigue/Lack of Energy
  • Poor Sleep
  • Weight Gain
  • Low Sex Drive
  • Depression and/or Anxiety
  • Trouble Concentrating
  • Muscle Loss

Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Thyroxine, the hormone released by the thyroid, is a crucial part of many of the body’s systems. Having an underactive thyroid that does not release enough thyroxine (hypothyroidism) can cause problems with your body’s metabolism, heart health, bone health, and many other systems.

Balancing Hormones for Weight Loss

Leptin and ghrelin are the hormones that regulate your body’s energy levels and appetite, and by treating and adjusting these hormone levels, you can lose weight and maintain a healthy figure.

Adrenal Fatigue and Stress Management

The adrenal glands in your body produce cortisol, which is commonly known as the “stress hormone.” While it plays an important role in your body’s stress response, having an imbalance of it can abnormally raise your stress levels and cause exhaustion and fatigue. Visiting with a doctor who specializes in endocrinology will help you understand your risk factors and determine whether you could benefit from hormone replacement therapy.

Growth Hormone Deficiency

Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) is a relatively rare condition that can occur from birth or develop later in life in which the body does not produce enough growth hormones, and thus does not meet the expected growth stages of a particular age. Our team has extensive experience in treating GHD and can help diagnose it, as well as come up with an effective treatment plan.

Immunity & Inflammatory Hormone Treatment

Inflammation and immunity response in the body is governed by a wide variety of hormones and amino acids. If you struggle with inflammation, muscle and joint pain, or immunity protection, hormone treatment can be an effective method of restoring your body’s natural recovery processes.

Insulin, Glucagon & Blood Sugar Management

Both insulin and glucagon are hormones the body uses to regulate blood glucose levels. Diabetics often struggle with managing their insulin levels and fall into a pattern of blood sugar lows and highs instead of consistently healthy levels. Our team has found that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing blood sugar, which is why we analyze all lifestyle and genetic factors when finding a solution for our patients.
