Hormone Treatments Q & A

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

Men and women with hormonal imbalances often experience low energy, decreased libido, fatigue, and weight gain. Additionally, women may also notice changes such as:

  • Irregular or absent periods
  • Irritability or moodiness
  • Acne
  • Hair loss or unusual hair growth
  • Infertility

Many women just live with their symptoms, not realizing a serious hormonal issue needs medical attention.

What causes a hormone imbalance?

Age, stress, diet, or another health condition can lead to hormone imbalances for men and women alike. At certain times in life -- such as puberty, pregnancy, or perimenopause -- hormonal changes fluctuate more dramatically than other times. If you’re experiencing symptoms, it’s a good idea to listen to your body and seek the advice of one of the qualified healthcare professionals at Validus Health and Wellness Center who can run some tests to determine what’s causing your particular hormonal changes.

Hormone balance is directly connected to the foods you consume, the amount of exercise you get, and the toxins your body absorbs. Stress levels and being overweight also contribute to hormone imbalances that can eventually lead to more serious health problems, if left untreated. Validus Health and Wellness Center offers women and men hormone treatment for the underlying conditions that are causing your symptoms.

What kinds of treatments are available for hormonal imbalances?

There are several methods of treating hormonal imbalances for both men and women. The doctors at Validus Health and Wellness Center first determine the underlying cause of your hormone issues, and then recommend treatment options. Some of these treatments and lifestyle changes may include:

  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Regular exercise
  • Dietary changes and/or nutritional supplements
  • Stress reduction strategies

What are the benefits of hormone therapy?

For many women, taking some form of HRT can help reduce hot flashes and night sweats – symptoms that often accompany menopause. Hormone therapies can also relieve vaginal dryness, itching, and other pain or discomfort during intercourse. Some hormone therapies also help decrease the risk of osteoporosis.

For men, hormone treatments often help combat low energy levels and help resume normal sex drives. Additionally, men often lose belly fat and reduce their waist size by a few inches while undergoing testosterone replacement therapies.
