Hormones are our bodies’ chemical messengers.
They are secreted by our endocrine glands directly into our bloodstreams, which carry them to our organs and tissues to perform specific functions. Our major endocrine glands include the pituitary, the pineal, the thymus, the thyroid, the adrenals, the pancreas, the testes (male), and the ovaries (female). Hormones impact and help regulate our growth and development, metabolism, sexual function and reproductive health, and cognitive functions and moods. Insufficient or excessive hormone levels can damage our health and lower our physical efficiency throughout our lives. Hormone levels in both women and men naturally decline with age.
But for some people, that erosion is accelerated by other physiological or lifestyle factors. These women and men may benefit from medical hormone replacement therapy (HRT). ThriveMD is the premier hormone replacement center in America. The doctors and staff at ThriveMD strive to deliver the best hormone replacement therapy Dallas has to offer, and are highly trained and experienced in this effective rejuvenating treatment. They invite you to schedule a consultation to determine if hormone replacement therapy in Dallas can elevate your health and enhance your enjoyment of life.
Hormone replacement therapy is a medical treatment given to women and men to restore and balance hormonal levels.
For women, hormone replacement therapy is typically used to replace declining levels of estrogen and progesterone. Male hormone replacement therapy adjusts testosterone levels, and in some cases, human growth hormone (HGH).
Dallas hormone replacement therapy is an excellent treatment for men who have unnaturally low testosterone levels. After age 30, most men experience a gradual but continual drop in testosterone. But accelerating drops in testosterone levels can be caused by a variety of other non-age-related conditions. Testosterone aids in:
Insufficient testosterone levels (“Low-T”) can lead to low energy, trouble concentrating, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, sleep disorders, high cholesterol, hypertension, depression and anxiety, and declining sexual desire and performance.
Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when she stops having menstrual periods. A natural and normal part of aging, menopause causes hormonal changes that lead to night sweats, hot flashes, pain during sex, and vaginal dryness. For many women, the symptoms are mild and often self-correcting. However, other women may consider hormone replacement therapy to relieve these symptoms. Hormone therapy has also proved effective in helping to prevent bone loss and fractures. In addition to menopause, other factors that may lead to hormonal decline include surgical removal of a woman’s ovaries, loss of normal ovarian function (known as primary ovarian insufficiency), and endometrial hyperplasia, an overgrowth of the lining of a woman’s uterus. At ThriveMD, we use pellet-based treatments along with peptide replacement to offset hormonal imbalances and keep women feeling their best.
Testosterone has been associated with the growth of existing prostate cancer.
Candidates for our Dallas hormone replacement therapy must be carefully screened for prostate cancer and undergo regular prostate exams while undergoing treatment. Side effects of male hormone replacement therapy can include fluid retention, acne, and increased urination. Among the more severe potential side effects are:
Elevated red blood cell counts have been linked to muscle pain, hypertension, blurry vision, chest pain, and blood clots.
Costs will depend on the type, range, duration, and extent of your hormone replacement therapy. ThriveMD is a cash pay concierge service that operates on personalized membership plans. As such, we do not accept insurance for any of our services.
Hormone replacement therapy is an effective treatment for menopausal hot flashes and night sweats. It can also ease vaginal dryness, itching, and discomfort with intercourse. Hormone replacement therapy also offers some protection from the bone-thinning disease known as osteoporosis.
For many women, hormone replacement therapy can increase sex drive, “level-out” mood changes, reduce irritability, and improve sleep. But hormone replacement therapy is not for all women. Tell us if you have a history of blood clots, liver disease, heart disease, cancer, or high blood pressure. Pregnant women should not undergo hormone replacement therapy.
Male hormone replacement therapy may boost energy, sharpen concentration, reduce fat, slow loss of muscle mass, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduce anxiety and depression, and increase sex drive.
Another form of male hormone therapy is designed to boost levels of human growth hormone (HGH). In some men, supplemental HGH may increase exercise capacity, help build bone density and muscle mass, reduce fat, and improve metabolism. If you are considering any type of hormone replacement therapy, you must provide your doctor with your complete medical history to determine if you have any disqualifying conditions.
Hormone replacement therapy has boosted the health and happiness of many men and women. But it is a highly specialized and customized form of therapeutic medicine that must be administered by fully trained and highly experienced physicians to ensure safety and optimize results.
