HRT can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It’s most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause and low libido.
Excess estrogen can cause anxiety, weight gain, belly fat, tender breasts, emotional lability, symptoms of PMS, and mood swings.
At Glow Aesthetic Medicine, we combine functional medicine with Hormone Replacement Therapy creating a more comprehensive solution for your hormone imbalances. We use only the highest quality laboratory testing and bioidentical plant based hormones from the best compounding pharmacies in the country.
The laboratory diagnostics we use are extensive and include blood, urine, and saliva testing depending on medical history. In addition to traditional hormone testing, we look at hormone precursors, vitamins and minerals that affect hormones, as well as Vitamin D3 which is actually a hormone itself! This comprehensive testing strategy allows us to correct imbalances more upstream in the biochemical processes and, therefore, earlier in the disease process.
Correcting Vitamin D3 and/or hormone precursor deficiencies will result in a more effective and complete solution bringing other imbalances into balance at the same time that we balance your hormones.
