Bioidentical Hormones for Women
As women approach mid-life, the so called “signs of aging” begin to appear, affecting daily function and overall health. You, like so many others, may dismiss joint pain, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, and a low libido as an inevitable part of the aging process, but these are symptoms of hormone imbalance.
The good news is, hormone imbalances can (and should) be treated. Hormone imbalances can do more than just affect your quality of life. Research has shown that low levels of testosterone can increase the risk of diseases, like diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Low levels of progesterone have been shown to affect sleep, and too much estrogen (known as estrogen dominance) can contribute to certain cancers.

When we think of Testosterone we think of bravado, masculinity, muscles, sex drive (libido). Facts, Testosterone does affect sex drive, virility, and muscle mass. But it also affects mood, bone strength and joints. When a man’s level of testosterone falls below normal, a doctor may prescribe shots, gels, patches, or pellets.
As we age it is normal for our hormone levels to decline. For men this is called andropause or male menopause. Because the decline is gradual, some symptoms may not be obvious or cause significant problems. Other men may notice a decline in muscle mass, weight gain, depression, mood swings, decreased libido, or diminished erections.
