Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

Natural hormone production is responsible for the metabolic function performed throughout the body such as regulating body temperature or burning calories. The hormones’ ability to interact with each other allows the body to function properly. Should these hormones become imbalanced it can cause:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain/loss
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Fluctuations in body temperature
  • Infertility
  • Inability to properly regulate blood sugar

What are the benefits of hormone replacement?

Hormone replacement therapy can be used for the treatment of many different conditions. It’s demonstrably effective at:

  • Reducing hot flashes
  • Reducing osteoporosis
  • Improving sleep, muscle aches, and pains
  • Providing positive changes in mood
  • Relief of urinary frequency
  • Reducing cardiovascular disease
  • Improving vaginal dryness and sexual function

What is thyroid hormone replacement?

Dr. Leahy and his team at Leahy Family Care & Wellness Center provides treatment for hypothyroid disorders through thyroid hormone replacement. Replacement of the thyroid hormones can be created using a variety of therapies, including the use of compounded thyroid therapies to achieve optimal health.

Is hormone therapy right for me?

As men and women age, changes in their body’s chemistry can create a need for therapeutic support. Bioidentical hormones, combined with the expertise of Dr. Leahy and his team, can contribute to your overall well-being. Dr. Leahy offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy options to his patients who are experiencing symptoms of menopause and other health conditions that are related to the endocrine system.

Deciding to use hormone replacement therapy is a personal choice based on individual needs. The first step in deciding on hormone therapy is to speak with Dr. Leahy and get an assessment of your symptoms. From there, a comprehensive treatment plan can be created which specifically targets your needs. If you have any history of serious conditions, such as breast cancer or cardiovascular disease, hormone therapy might not be the right choice for you.
