When we think of hormone imbalances, we often think of women who are going through menopause. But, actually, you can have imbalanced hormones regardless of your gender. You can also experience symptoms of imbalanced hormones at any age.
At Alabama Vein & Restoration MedSpa, Dr. Charles Hunt II and his team use safe and effective treatment options for hormone replacement therapy. Because we want you to understand all of the options that you have available, we’ve compiled this helpful guide so you can choose the best hormone replacement treatment for you.
How do I know if I have a hormone imbalance?
Usually, hormones become imbalanced because of stress, illness, injury, medical treatments, diabetes, aging, or thyroid problems. Though both share many symptoms, they often present differently in men and women.
Women, for example, can experience:
- Weight gain
- Vaginal dryness
- Excess hair growth
- Irregular bleeding
While men can experience:
- Weight gain
- Low or no sex drive
- Muscle weakness
- Thinning or loss of hair
Hormone replacement therapy can both alleviate these symptoms and help you restore your vitality. But you’re probably wondering what your treatment options are.
Treatment options for hormone replacement therapy
When it comes to balancing your hormones, you have a couple of different options. Each treatment will depend on your individual needs, and you’ll want to talk to us to see which treatment will be the best option for you.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
Bioidentical hormones are made from plants. These elements are naturally occurring and identical to the hormones found in our bodies. They help replace hormones like estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, thyroid hormones, and melatonin. This is a great option if you want hormone replacement that’s as safe and natural as possible.
Lipo B12 injections
Lipotropic injections are specifically made to help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism, stimulating your liver function, and using antioxidants that help your body break down fat cells. For the best results, we recommend weekly injections.
Testosterone replacement therapy for men
This is a great treatment for men with low testosterone. Testosterone replacement therapy helps renew your sexual drive, lower your bad cholesterol levels, decrease your body fat, and increase confidence and a more positive mood. Treatment can also improve your cognitive ability and help you sleep better.
