Signs of imbalanced hormones

Many health conditions and natural aging can lead to hormonal imbalance. Some of the early signs of imbalanced hormones include:

  • Weight gain

  • Fatigue

  • Sweating

  • Increased/decreased heart rate

  • Sudden weight loss

  • Muscle pain or stiffness

  • Decreased sex drive

  • Constipation

  • Depression

  • Brittle or thinning hair

  • Dry, flaky skin

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Hot flashes

Depending on the cause of your hormonal imbalance, you may experience only a few or many of the above early symptoms.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

BHRT, is often the go-to way to replenish hormones lost by women during menopause or following a hysterectomy.

When a woman enters menopause or undergoes a hysterectomy, her hormones start to drop rapidly, which makes it difficult for the body to find balance.

Women will experience vaginal dryness, loss of sexual interest, hot flashes, mood swings, and other symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy can help balance the body’s hormone levels and quickly alleviate the unpleasant symptoms of a hormone imbalance.

Our team of highly trained doctors also treats men who experience hormone fluctuations. The best candidates for BHRT are usually men or women over 40 who start to experience the early signs of hormone imbalance.

Benefits of BHRT

BHRT adds bioidentical hormones to help rebalance the body’s hormones and reduce symptoms. The hormones can aid in weight loss, improve memory, stabilize mood, and help regain muscle loss.

Is BHRT right for you?

Hormone replacement therapy can often help both men and women, but it is not suitable for everyone.

Hormone replacement therapy might not be ideal for individuals with the following health conditions:

  • Pregnant or think you might become pregnant

  • Experience vaginal bleeding

  • Suffer from certain cancers, such as breast or ovarian

  • History of blood clots

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

The doctors at Concierge Medicine of Columbus will evaluate your health history to determine if you are a suitable candidate for hormone replacement therapy.
