Hormones help the body regulate/stimulate normal functions such as sexual wellness, health and growth as well as your overall well-being. However, at about the age of 25 years, both women and men start experiencing a reduction in hormone production, i.e., estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone; which is why hormone replacement therapy is essential. At Medical Transformation Center in Louisville, we take pride in offering the best hormone replacement therapy services to help keep your hormones balanced.
Maintaining Proper Body Mass and Weight
As you grow older, it becomes easier to gain more weight and harder to take it off. Hormones can help maintain your weight and body mass since they can significantly regulate your BMI (Body Mass Index) or body fat. When the levels of hormones such as testosterone and thyroid decline, the body tends to build fewer muscles while it stores more fat.
Counteract Early Menopause Side Effects
At about the age of 30 to 35, some women suffer from early menopause, unlike the usual age of 45 to 50. Although this might be as a result of surgical procedures, e.g. removal of ovaries and the uterus, most cases result from a hormonal imbalance. By replacing deficient hormones with hormone replacement therapy, most of these displeasing menopause symptoms can be treated.
Improvement of Bone Density
A decline in certain hormones can easily lead to increased bone weakness (osteoporosis). Moreover, insufficient testosterone in men and estrogen in women at post-menopause can cause brittle bones.
Wrinkling skin is one of the least desirable effects of growing old, especially for women. However, replacement hormones, i.e. estrogen, can help your skin become healthier.
