The years are going to fly by regardless of how well you take care of yourself. While the aging process may be obvious when you look at your face or your hair, it is what is going on beneath the surface that may surprise you. Once you hit the age of 40 and beyond, you are likely to experience significant fluctuations in hormone levels.
When there are deficiencies, you’ll begin to have troubling symptoms. Bio-identical hormone optimization can help you to reduce the effects of aging and make you feel more like yourself.
What are Symptoms of Age-Related Hormone Deficiencies?
As a natural part of the aging process, your reproductive system is going to slowly shut down. Reproductive hormones will drop over the years. For some people, there may not be any significant changes. For others, the symptoms are troubling.
One of the most common problems is fatigue that will not go away, no matter how much rest you get. At the same time, you may have trouble sleeping and find that your sleep problems are disrupted night after night.
Your strength may begin to fade until you find it difficult to do the things that you have always done. Irritability is common, even though there is no need for bursts of frustration or anger. Many people experience a loss of sex drive as well.
When you have a drop in hormone levels, it doesn’t only affect you, but loved ones around you as well. Bio-identical hormone optimization may be able to help you.
Bio-Identical Hormone Optimization Balances Your System
By choosing bio-identical hormone optimization, you can restore balance in your hormone levels once again. Hormones that are naturally-based and identical to the hormones found in your body are prescribed in order to make up for any deficiencies that you may have.
We will talk to you about your medical history, ask questions about your symptoms, and perform an examination. It is important to rule out any other conditions that could cause your symptoms.
If test results indicate that you have a serious drop in hormone levels, we can prescribe bio-identical hormones in a dosage that is tailored to meet your needs. We can administer hormone optimization therapy or in our Baltimore office.
Over time, you should begin to see a return of your strength and energy. Emotional balance and improved sexual libido are other advantages to this treatment plan.
