As a person ages, hormone levels become lower, giving a number of symptoms. Proper levels of hormones in our body are vital for our body to function properly. Some of the most common causes of hormonal imbalances are unhealthy lifestyle, stress and poor nutrition. Both men and women can suffer from symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, difficulty sleeping, memory problems, reduced muscle strength and lack of energy during the day.
All of these symptoms could be a sign that you need hormone replacement therapy in Miami. This type of therapy can help patients with hormonal imbalances regain their health and vitality.
In this article we will discuss the five signs showing that you might need hormone replacement therapy (HTR).
You are experiencing menopausal symptoms
You can benefit from hormone replacement therapy if you are experiencing menopausal symptoms such as being lethargic, having the unwillingness to take care of your family, not having the desire to interact with your social circle or lack of energy to perform daily tasks. You can talk to your doctor about this type of therapy to know if HRT is the right treatment option for you.
You are suffering from severe PMS
Some of the mild symptoms of PMS such as bloating, fatigue and moodiness can be treated with over the counter pain medications or natural remedies. But, in severe cases of PMS, also called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), the symptoms include intense pain, mental distress and altered thinking. If these symptoms are occurring every month, you may be diagnosed with PMDD.
If you are suffering from PMDD, your doctor might recommend for you to undergo hormone replacement therapy. This can involve a higher dose of estrogen, which helps reduce severe symptoms. Estrogen may also be paired with progesterone to lower the risk of uterine cancer. The treatment also requires lifestyle changes such as engaging in routine exercises, taking supplements and shifting into a healthy diet, to improve your overall wellness.
You gradually have mood changes
Imbalanced hormones can gradually change a person’s mood, which can potentially lead to anxiety and depression. Most women don’t have an idea that their mood changes are due to hormonal problems and believes that it is a normal part of aging. Although, some mood swings are normal, severe mood changes are a sign of declining hormone levels.
The symptoms include extreme irritability, anxiety problems, and feeling depressed. If you are experiencing these symptoms it’s important to talk to your doctor about HRT. With this type of therapy your hormone levels will be balanced, you would have more energy and reduced emotional symptoms.
You have a low libido or desire
Deficient hormone levels naturally lower libido. It’s normal to have a drop of hormones at times, but if it’s affecting your relationship it is necessary to consult a doctor. Bioidentical hormone therapy has the ability to increase your libido, while making you feel younger and increase your energy.
You have a high risk for osteoporosis
Hormonal issues do not only affect a person’s mood, or energy levels. A drop of hormones can also result in a loss of bone density and collagen levels. Therefore, increasing the risk of osteoporosis and fractures. With hormone replacement you will be able to increase bone density and prevent loss of collagen.
