Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a highly personalized treatment designed to replenish your hormone levels when your body doesn’t produce enough of the hormones it needs for optimal function.

The doctors at PURE Executive Health & Wellness offer hormone therapy in a range of forms, including pills, creams, patches, and injections. Your hormone replacement therapy is customized to meet your specific hormonal needs.

What are the signs that I need hormone replacement therapy?

The most common reason for hormone replacement therapy is menopause. However, men also experience hormone loss and low testosterone, which can disrupt their health and vitality. Also, if you have conditions like diabetes or a thyroid disorder, your treatment includes replacement hormones to address any imbalances.

Some common signs that may indicate a hormonal imbalance include:

  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Muscle mass loss
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Irritability
  • Mood changes, including anxiety and depression

 

A hormonal imbalance can make you feel a little off or not like yourself. If you want to find out if hormone replacement therapy is right for you, schedule a consultation at PURE Executive Health & Wellness.

What happens during hormone replacement therapy?

Your physician begins with a comprehensive exam and blood work. Your doctor not only checks for hormonal imbalances, but also for any other health conditions that could contribute to your symptoms.

If your tests reveal a hormonal imbalance, your doctor prescribes custom hormone replacement therapy. You will meet with your PURE Executive Health & Wellness provider regularly so they can monitor your symptoms and hormone levels, adjusting your treatment as needed to optimize your health.

How do I know if hormone replacement therapy is right for me?

Your PURE Executive Health & Wellness provider ensures that hormone replacement therapy is the best treatment to relieve your symptoms through extensive testing, including hormonal and genetic assessments. For example, if you have a family or personal history of certain cancers, hormone therapy may not be the best treatment to relieve your symptoms.
