Hormone Therapy, Your Guide to a Better Life as You Get Older

Evernow: Menopause

As you celebrate more birthdays, your body is more likely to reduce the production of reproductive hormones. In return, you may experience a series of symptoms that may affect your mental and physical health. Suppose you are in search of hormone therapy in Covington,

 Louisiana Heart and Vascular Institute are ready to manage symptoms like hair loss and osteoporosis. You are assured of a fully personalized treatment plan targeting specific symptoms.

What Is Hormone Therapy?

Hormone therapy refers to a treatment option focusing on restoring natural hormone levels to help you get past symptoms related to hormonal imbalances. Hormone therapy uses synthetic hormones with structural similarity to natural body hormones.

At Louisiana Heart and Vascular Institute, Dr. Aduli may prescribe hormones in the form of an implant, pill, or cream to deliver a steady flow of hormones into your bloodstream.

Who Needs Hormone Therapy?

As you get older, your body becomes more vulnerable to hormonal imbalances.

In women, the hormonal imbalance gets more serious while transitioning to menopause. During menopause, menstrual periods halt while the body produces fewer reproductive hormones like progesterone and estrogen.

A decline in reproductive hormones like testosterone makes it hard to get and maintain an erection for a man. Erectile dysfunction limits you from enjoying intercourse as you did.

Reducing hormone levels in men and women makes one highly vulnerable to symptoms that may affect your mental and physical health. Such conditions include:

·       Anxiety and depression.

·       Chronic fatigue.

·       Hair loss.

·       Hot flashes and sweating.

·       Lesser interest in sex.

·       Mood swings.

·       Sexual dysfunction.

·       Vaginal dryness.

·       Weight gain.

If untreated, hormonal imbalances increase your vulnerability for heart complications and osteoporosis/ loss of bone density.

Each person experiences the symptoms on a slightly different scale. In case of mild symptoms, the hormones may settle after a while, allowing most symptoms to resolve independently. If you report severe symptoms, you may be considered for hormone therapy.

Do I Qualify for Hormone Therapy?

Dr. Aduli performs an extensive evaluation to determine the severity of your symptoms and eligibility for hormone therapy.  You are required to give information about your personal and family medical history. To measure hormone levels, you may need a blood test.

Dr. Aduli uses your test results and diagnoses to determine the best remedy for dropping testosterone levels in men and estrogen and progesterone levels in women.

Dr. Aduli takes a little time to find the best kind and hormone dosage that can relieve your symptoms. You are required to work hand in hand with Dr. Aduli to get a closer look at your symptom relief.

To restore optimum hormone levels, you may also benefit from dietary and lifestyle adjustments recommended by Dr. Aduli.
