A Healthier You with Hormone Therapy
For both Men and Women
As we age, our body can experience an imbalance in our hormone levels that can affect our health and overall well being. Here is a basic review of health concerns that are associated with an imbalance in hormone levels. If you can identify with a few or all of these, you should think about hormone therapy.
- Have you noticed a loss in energy or drive
- Are you often tired, feeling like you have hit a wall
- Do you feel that your muscle strength has diminished
- Are you having trouble losing weight, even though you are following a diet plan
- Do you feel mood swings, are you anxious or suffer from depression
- Are you not able to sleep at night
- Do you feel that your mental clarity is slipping
- Have you noticed a decrease in sexual desire or performance
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may have a hormone imbalance.
Southern Nevada Bariatrics often sees patients who are struggling with their weight with this condition.
Whether you are struggling with your weight or just not feeling quite right and are over 30 years of age, Hormone Therapy might be right for you.
We start the process with a simple blood test so that we can determine what is going on within your system. Your blood test will help us identify what your body is lacking so that we can create a plan that is right for you.
Why Choose Hormone Therapy
Southern Nevada Bariatrics uses pellet implant and injection therapy for a number of reasons. The hormones in the pellets and injections are derived from natural plant sources that are designed to replicate your body’s normal hormone levels.
With the pellets, once they are placed under the skin the patient receives consistent release of the hormones to provide a natural balance of your hormone levels. There is no need to take a daily oral dose that often produces a roller coaster of highs and lows in hormone levels.
The hormone pellets also provide sustained hormone levels from three to six months. Because they are natural hormones the patient does not have the drawbacks of synthetic hormones.
The difference with the injectable hormones is that the shot must be administered weekly, but as you can see by the graph, it is the second most effective source of hormone therapy.
Hormone Therapy for Women
Hormone deficiency in women can affect the brain, bone density, muscle strength, heart health and metabolism, and over time can negatively affect your health.
Women who are treated with hormone therapy often have improved mental clarity, muscle tone and libido, just to mention some of the improvements.
Our brain needs normal amounts of testosterone along with estrogen to produce serotonin, which supports an emotional balance in women. With that instability there can be increased irritability, sadness and depression and lack of sleep.
In the Perimenopause phase, there is a major decline in healthy hormone levels. Your overall health can be greatly improved with Hormone Pellet Therapy.
I’m a Guy, How can Hormone Therapy Help Me
Medical research shows that men experience something equivalent to menopause called andropause. Men lose their testosterone at a rate of 3% to 10% per year after age 30.
Men often experience similar health problems such as mental clarity, fatigue, loss of libido and difficulty having or sustaining an erection.
Hormone treatments for men can be costly, with daily oral consumption with no long term sustainability throughout the day. Hormone Pellet Therapy can provide consistent, sustained testosterone levels throughout the day for four to six months.
