Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

It’s important to note that both males and females may experience some overlapping symptoms related to hormonal imbalances, such as mood swings, sleep disturbances, and weight fluctuations. If you suspect you have a hormonal imbalance, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. Hormone replacement therapy may be an option for those with clinically significant imbalances, but the appropriate treatment will depend on individual circumstances.

If you are experiencing any of the following age-related issues, Hormone Replacement Therapy may benefit you.

  • Weight Problems
  • Lack of energy
  • Brain Fog
  • Body aches
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Medications with bad side effects
  • Hypertension/High Cholesterol
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Arthritis/Inflammation
  • Diabetes
  • Saggy Skin/Muscle Loss
  • Thinning hair/Weak nails
  • Spousal Intolerance
  • Sexual Dysfunction

Issues Caused by Hormonal Imbalances in Females:

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): PCOS is characterized by hormonal imbalances that can lead to irregular menstrual cycles, ovarian cysts, fertility challenges, weight gain, and excessive facial hair growth.

Menstrual Irregularities: Hormonal imbalances can cause irregular, heavy, or painful periods.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS): Fluctuations in hormones before menstruation can cause mood swings, bloating, and breast tenderness.

Menopause Symptoms: As women approach menopause, hormone levels change, leading to hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, and vaginal dryness.

Infertility and Fertility Issues: Imbalances in reproductive hormones can interfere with ovulation and fertility.

Mood Disorders: Hormonal changes can influence mood and lead to anxiety and depression.

Weight Fluctuations: Hormonal imbalances can contribute to weight gain or difficulty losing weight.

Thyroid Disorders: Issues with the thyroid gland, which produces hormones that regulate metabolism, can cause hormonal imbalances in women.

Low Libido: Hormonal imbalances can lead to reduced sexual desire and arousal.

Bone Health Concerns: Estrogen imbalances can lead to decreased bone density and increase the risk of osteoporosis.

Issues Caused by Hormonal Imbalances in Males:

Low Testosterone (Hypogonadism): A decrease in testosterone levels can lead to reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, decreased muscle mass, and mood swings.

Gynecomastia: Imbalances between testosterone and estrogen can cause the development of breast tissue in males, leading to gynecomastia.

Male Infertility: Hormonal imbalances can affect sperm production and quality, leading to fertility issues.

Mood Disorders: Changes in hormone levels can contribute to mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and depression.

Weight Gain: Hormonal imbalances may lead to increased fat accumulation, especially around the abdomen.

Decreased Bone Density: Inadequate testosterone levels can result in reduced bone density, increasing the risk of osteoporosis.

Sleep Problems: Hormonal imbalances can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to insomnia or poor sleep quality.

Hair Loss: Testosterone imbalances can contribute to male pattern baldness.

Why saliva instead of blood?

At Zen Medicine, we evaluate your hormone levels in our comprehensive blood panel. In addition, we can also test your hormone levels in your saliva. Why saliva instead of blood? For hormones to be active, they have to exist in their free state. In blood, most hormones are bound to proteins and are therefore inactive. It can be difficult to determine how much of a hormone measured in serum or blood is free and actually available to your cells. In saliva, however, hormones are readily measured in their free and bioavailable state.
