Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many of us are well are well aware that maintaining an ideal weight is difficult despite the best efforts with diet and exercise. What most don’t know is that an undetected hormone imbalance can be the hidden culprit sabotaging your hard work to stay slim and active. Not only could it be sabotaging your weight loss but your mood, sleep, skin, bone, brain, and sex life.
What's the connection?
Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat.
Shifting hormones complicated by stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, etc., trigger numerous symptoms of imbalance – including unexplained weight gain. The good news is that testing is simple and can be done in office or in our clinic. We also offer medically supervised phentermine to get control of your food cravings and the HCG diet plan for individuals who want to lose thirty pounds or more.
What type of Hormones are we talking about?
In addition to Estrogen & Progesterone imbalance, Thyroid abnormalities are often not adequately diagnosed or addressed by women’s primary doctors and thus metabolism is declined.
Is hormone imbalance common?
The majority of American women have either Cortisol excess or a condition described as Adrenal Fatigue from prolonged elevated cortisol/stress elevation. Both conditions result in sugar cravings, impaired metabolism of other hormones, and low metabolic rate.
What hormones are involved in Hormone replacement therapy?
Testosterone and DHEA, often thought of as primarily a male hormones, are equally important in women and deficiencies lead to decreased lean muscle, decreased metabolic rate, and abdominal obesity. Vitamin D (the solar hormone) is also implicated in weight gain if inadequate. Adult onset Growth Hormone deficiency is also very common and rarely ever tested or treated.
