As part of your hormone replacement therapy in West Bloomfield, the medical providers at Forum Health West Bloomfield will meet with you for a one-one one consultation to learn more about your specific symptoms, challenges, and goals for treatment. We’ll also use this as an opportunity to learn more about your medical history and any allergies and medications you currently use.
After taking the time to learn more about you, your symptoms, and your specific hormone imbalances, we can begin to develop a treatment plan based on your unique profile. Learn more about some of the most common deficiencies we treat with hormone imbalance treatments in West Bloomfield!
Commonly Treated Deficiencies
Though your full panel blood work will help our providers determine the specific areas where you have a hormone imbalance, there are a few areas in particular that we tend to see patients lacking the most. Some of these areas are common in both men and women, and some are specific to your sex.
The DHEA hormone, produced by your adrenal glands, has a variety of different functions that affect both mens’ and womens’ health. In particular, DHEA helps to restore a person’s sexual vitality while also stimulating your immune system and decreasing your body fat and cholesterol. Additionally, DHEA can impact your mood and your ability to reverse the effects of stress on your immune system.
The Thyroid hormone is another hormone found in both men and women, helping to regulate your temperature, cerebral function, and metabolism. Because your thyroid is so vital for fat breakdown and temperature regulation, many people with a thyroid deficiency struggle with their weight and body fat levels.
With thyroid treatments, your provider will focus on optimizing your Free T3 levels, which help improve your energy and reduce fatigue. We’ll also focus on managing your TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), which helps stimulate the thyroid gland and produce more of the thyroid hormone.
Estrogen and Progesterone
Both estrogen and progesterone are secreted by the ovaries but cease production once a woman begins menopause. Both are closely related to women’s health, and both help reduce the risk of osteoporosis while also treating premenstrual symptoms. However, the two hormones also have additional, differing functions in terms of how they protect the body.
Progesterone helps protect against uterine and breast cancers. Estrogen, meanwhile, helps protect against problems like heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimers. An estrogen deficiency can also cause:
- Mood swings
- Sagging skin
- Decreased libido
- And increases in fatigue or depression
When treating these deficiencies with hormone replacement therapy in West Bloomfield, our providers make it a point to only use natural estrogen and progesterone supplements.
Testosterone, though normally associated with men, is also present in women’s bodies. In particular, testosterone helps to maintain and increase your muscle mass, strength, and endurance. In men, a lack of testosterone can lead to many of the same issues as a lack of estrogen in women, including mood swings, depression, and a low sex drive.
In addition to Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, our providers can also utilize Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) to treat the symptoms of Low T in both men and women. Using this method can increase not only your physical health, but also your emotional health and wellbeing.
