For Women and Men

Hormone replacement therapy is typically used to help balance estrogen and progesterone in women around the time of menopause. Women typically begin to experience a decline in hormone function during perimenopause and into menopause. But guys, hormone imbalances are not just a problem among women, which also means hormone replacement therapy from Michigan Pain Consultants can help you as well. A man’s testosterone usually peaks around their late teens to early 20’s, ultimately dropping at an average rate of 1% every year. Men who pursue bio-identical hormone therapy to treat hormonal imbalance may experience significant benefits including more energy, increased muscle mass and strength, weight loss and improved sexual function.

It’s Just Stress, Right Guys?

Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many men dismiss the symptoms as side effects of stress, but in a majority of cases it is low testosterone. It’s a fact of life for both women and men: hormone levels decline as you age. Hormone imbalance in men can occur at any point in the life cycle, but it is most commonly experienced around middle-age when testosterone levels reach a peak point of decline. Low testosterone has the biggest impact on a man’s health and quality of life.

Symptoms may include: Muscle Loss, Weight Gain, Fatigue, Problems with Sleeping, Night Sweats, Lower Sex Drive, Depression, Hair Loss, Erectile Dysfunction, Urinary Problems, Memory Loss, and other symptoms. Men who are experiencing one or more of these symptoms should consider advanced laboratory testing at Michigan Pain Consultants to assess their hormone levels. Why? Because conventional methods used to restore male hormone levels, such as synthetic hormones produced by pharmaceutical companies do not provide the tailored treatment necessary for achieving and maintaining optimal health.

Women Typically Experience….

As part of the normal aging process, our body’s hormonal function slowly declines. Women typically begin to experience a decline in hormone function during perimenopause and into menopause. Hormones are the body’s chemical messaging system. There are multiple glands throughout the body and each is designed to carry out certain functions to keep the body in a constant balance. Functions include: Heart rate, Metabolism, Appetite, Mood, Sexual Function, Reproduction, Sleep Cycles, Stress Management, and others. There never seems to be a rhyme or reason as to how any of these symptoms will affect your day. We understand. So what is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
