Women’s Hormonal Health
Hormones can be unpredictable, even volatile at times. However, when properly cared for, nurtured, and monitored, hormones can help heal the body from common pains and diseases.
As endocrinologists, we understand the relationship between a woman’s body and her hormones which is why we specialize in female hormonal health. We’ve dedicated countless amounts of time and resources to assuring our patients receive the assessments, attention, education, and care they deserve.
Our expertise spans a wide range of women’s health issues and our services are focused on bringing the female body back to hormonal harmony. Below are a few of the medical services our medical practice offers to help restore hormonal health for women.
Menopause Hormone Treatment
Defined as a reduction in hormone production by the ovaries, Menopause is a hormonal drop women experience at some point in their lives – most commonly between ages of 45 and 55 years old. If you haven’t had any vaginal bleeding over a significant period of time then you may be experiencing menopause and will want to seek medical attention to determine if hormone therapy is appropriate for your current circumstances.
Hair Loss and Unwanted Hair Growth Hormone Treatment
Often attributed to hormonal imbalances such as fluctuating testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels, female hair loss and hair growth is a prevailing problem for many women. If you have hair loss or unwanted hair growth that needs to be addressed, know that you’re not alone and it’s best to consult with our endocrinologists that can properly identify the necessary measures to get your hormones back on track.
Obesity Hormone Treatment
Triggered by hormone imbalances of leptin, insulin, growth hormone, estrogen and others, obesity is highly correlated to hormonal health. Sometimes labeled hypothyroidism (under active thyroid gland), prolonged weight gain can pose serious health issues. If you’re experiencing prolonged weight gain, it’s wise to consult with a knowledgeable physician and to take proactive steps towards positive hormone realignment and weight reduction, like our Weigh Less for Way Less weight loss program.
Fatigue Hormone Treatment
Linked to low levels of hormones such as cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, and more, chronic fatigue syndrome can cause serious disruption to any active woman’s life. If you’re low on energy and stamina you could be undergoing a hormonal insufficiency that requires professional treatment to help revitalize your health.
Sleep Hormone Treatment
Have you recently noticed that your sleep cycles are not what they used to be? Are you finding it hard to get enough rest to allow for proper productivity? Declining levels of estrogen and other hormone imbalances can lead to loss of sleep, causing extreme distress to your health. Despite other attempts to “catch up” on sleep, the root of the problem cannot be fixed without proper hormone therapy.
Having an endocrinologists by your side to help you assess and diagnose any of the above women’s health issues can be invaluable to your long term health and quality of life. Commonly rooted in hormonal and metabolic disorders, many of the health problems women face require a re-balance of the body’s internal functions.
