Many people may suffer from hormonal imbalance at different times in their life resulting in symptoms such as unexplained exhaustion, weight gain, dry skin, low energy or low sex drive. When hormone levels fall below an optimal range resulting in symptoms a doctor can help improve hormone function or replace the hormones that the body is not producing. This is assessed through a blood test and the prescription of required hormone supplements and helps to reduce symptoms and enable the maintenance of healthy levels of hormone function.
Sometimes deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, nutrition or getting enough sleep can affect hormone production so correcting these issues can improve hormone function naturally without having to resort to hormone replacement therapies. Hormone optimization can also achieve optimal hormones levels through the prescription of Vitamin D, Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, Insulin, and Cholesterol among others.
