Hormone therapy - Restore Vitality Clinic

Understanding Hormones

Hormones are essential chemical messengers that travel through the bloodstream, directing cells, organs, and glands to perform important functions. They are secreted by the endocrine glands and help regulate metabolism, growth, development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood.

When hormone levels deviate from healthy ranges, it leads to problems. An endocrinologist specializing in hormone therapy can help detect and treat hormone imbalances via medications and lifestyle modifications. Early diagnosis and treatment can help restore hormone balance, enabling people to thrive.

Improving Men's Health

For men, testosterone is a vital hormone that starts declining around age 30. Low testosterone or "low T" has widespread impacts:

Physical Effects

Sexual Effects

Mental Effects

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can reverse many low T problems. But it's crucial to first verify low T through bloodwork. Rule out other causes behind symptoms before considering TRT.

If low T is diagnosed, TRT can be transformational under an endocrinologist's care:

Physical Improved energy, strength, endurance
Body Decreased fat, increased lean muscle
Sexual Better libido, function
Mental Sharper cognition, elevated mood
Metabolic Healthier cholesterol, blood sugar
Longevity Reduced obesity, heart disease risks

Have realistic expectations from TRT - it's not a magic anti-aging bullet. Following the doctor's protocols for treatment and lifestyle is key.

Debunking Myths

There are many myths around hormone therapy due to misinformation. Let's separate facts from fiction!

Myth 1: HRT Causes Cancer

Fact: Quality evidence shows HRT does NOT cause breast or ovarian cancers in menopausal women when started properly.

The Women's Health Initiative study flaws wrongly connected HRT and cancer. Today's bioidentical hormones have MORE oversight and safety. Maintaining a healthy weight also cuts cancer risks.

Myth 2: Taking Thyroid Medication Means You Have "No Thyroid"

Fact: Hypothyroid patients still have a thyroid gland, it just doesn't make adequate thyroid hormone. Taking oral thyroid medication simply REPLACES the missing hormones.

Without treatment, low thyroid hormone causes fatigue, weight gain, etc. Taking thyroid medication helps cells function normally again.

Myth 3: Pellets and Patches Have Very Different Effects

Fact: Testosterone delivery via pellets, gels, patches, or injections ultimately rely on reaching optimal TESTOSTERONE blood levels.

Beyond the dosage form, optics depend more on keeping levels in healthy ranges. This avoids mood/energy fluctuations. Work with an endocrinologist to determine your optimal dosage method and range!

Innovations in Hormone Therapy

Exciting innovations in hormone treatment are making therapy safer, easier, and more targeted to individual needs:

This is an exciting time in the field of endocrinology and hormone optimization! Seeking care from specialty clinics ensures you benefit from the latest innovations.

Hormone Therapy for Healthspan and Longevity

Healthspan refers to the phase of life spent thriving versus just surviving. Optimizing hormones plays a key role in extending our years of prime health and function.

As hormone production starts declining around age 30-35, proactively correcting levels can help us keep youthfulness in body and mind. This is why anti-aging experts check hormones first when assessing patients.

Besides feeling good now, balancing hormones has a protective effect against chronic illnesses to extend total lifespan. Stable blood sugars, less inflammation, healthier cholesterol profiles, and more contribute to longevity.

It's never too late to regain balance - even making simple hormone and lifestyle adjustments in your 50s and beyond helps with aging gracefully.
