Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that restores low hormone levels, such as low testosterone and low estrogen. Bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones your body produces.

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

If your hormones aren’t balanced, you might experience:

  • Unwanted weight gain
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Increased in body fat
  • Fatigue
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Thinning hair
  • Depression or mood changes
  • Reduced bone density

At the first sign of new or unusual symptoms that indicate hormone imbalance, see the experts at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness for an evaluation. 

What are the risk factors for hormone problems?

Anybody can develop hormone issues, but certain factors increase your risk. Examples include older age, genetics, family history of hormone problems, stress, and being overweight or obese. Leading a healthy lifestyle and seeing your provider regularly are the best ways to keep hormone levels within a normal range.

How is a hormone imbalance diagnosed?

To find out if you have unbalanced hormones, your provider at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness reviews your medical history and asks about your symptoms. They complete a physical examination and use blood tests to evaluate levels of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormone, and other hormones.

What happens during hormone replacement therapy?

Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using pellet therapy to get your levels back on track. Testosterone pellet therapy not only helps men, but it’s also a good way for women to get testosterone into their systems to stay lean, boost energy, and reduce depression. 

During the procedure, your provider numbs the area near your hip and makes a tiny incision. They place a small pellet just beneath the skin and close the incision. The pellet slowly releases hormones into your bloodstream over time to prevent low testosterone and other hormone imbalances. Your provider can replace the pellet every few months to keep your hormones balanced.

To have your hormones checked and find out if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you, book an appointment by phone or online with Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness at the Collierville or Germantown Southwind office today.
