Hormones are tiny chemicals that travel through your blood, directing the function of various body systems, like your hunger, mood, and libido. Made by your endocrine glands, you only need small amounts of hormones in the blood to perform these functions.
However, hormone levels may vary. When there’s a change in hormone production, it affects your physical and emotional well-being. A hormone imbalance may occur at any time.
However, as you get older production of sex hormones declines. This includes the male sex hormone testosterone and the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone. Many of the symptoms people associate with aging occur because of these sex hormone changes.
HRT is a treatment for low hormone levels. Though you may need HRT if you have a change in any hormone, it’s most often used to rebalance age-related sex hormone changes.
Synergy Release Sports is an innovative practice that puts your health above all else, providing services that boost your well-being, like HRT.
Your provider at Synergy Release Sports determines if you’re a candidate for HRT after a consultation. You may want to schedule an appointment if you’re experiencing signs and symptoms of hormonal changes like:
Your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history and runs lab work to check your hormone levels. If your hormone levels are low and you have no contraindications for HRT, then they may consider you a candidate for the therapy.
HRT isn’t recommended for people with a history of breast cancer, heart disease, or blood clots.
HRT comes in many forms, including tablets, creams, and pellets. Your provider talks to you about your HRT, the types of hormones you need, and the best delivery method.
You should notice an improvement in how you feel within a few weeks after starting your HRT. The team at Synergy Release Sports schedules regular follow-ups to monitor your symptoms, check your lab work, and adjust your HRT as needed.
