Perimenopause, Menopause, and Andoropause are hormonal issues that come with age. Our personal hormone replacement therapy in Jupiter  is designed to provide our patients with relief to these commonalities they age.

Perimenopause and Menopause

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when the ovarian production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone begins to decline. Even though the median age for menopause is 51, many women can experience menopause starting at the age of 35. Symptoms of hormone deficiency may include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, anxiety, depression, insomnia, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, fatigue, memory loss, weight gain, urinary incontinence, muscle weakness, and joint pain. Hormonal balance is essential to good health for women of all ages. Hormone decline is not limited to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Other natural hormones that can decline include DHEA, Human Growth Hormone, thyroid hormone, melatonin and others. All hormones have a specific role in your body and all cells in the body have receptors for these hormones. Additionally, each hormone affects numerous metabolic activities that support bone formation, lipid metabolism, liver function, and brain function.

Our bioidentical hormones in Jupiter are a natural hormone replacement that mimics the molecular structure of the naturally occurring hormones in your body. Diagnosis of hormone deficiency can be accurately achieved by physical examination, clinical history and lab work that include both saliva and serum testing. From pills to patches, our providers supply hormone treatment therapy in a variety of ways suitable for the patient’s lifestyle. Hormone treatment has proven to be a success in both men and woman suffering from hormonal disarray.

Male Andropause

The male hormone testosterone drops about 10% every decade starting around the age of 30. By the time men are between the ages of 40 and 55, the drop in hormone levels gradually produces changes in attitude, mood, confidence, memory, energy level, sex drive, muscle tone and mass, abdominal fat and physical ability. Psychological stress, alcohol, injuries, surgery, medications and obesity can contribute to its onset.

Hormone decline is not limited to just testosterone. Other natural hormonal levels can be deficient in Andropause. These hormones can include Human Growth Hormone, DHEA, thyroid hormone, melatonin and others. Studies have shown that a decline in testosterone and growth hormone actually contributes to the risk of health problems like heart disease, osteoporosis and weak muscles leading to frailty.

All cells in the body have receptors for hormones; declining hormones are a major contribution to deterioration of the brain, muscle, skin, bone, joints, vessels, heart and quality of life. Each hormone has a specific role in your body. Testosterone builds protein and is essential for sexual behavior. Additionally each hormone affects numerous metabolic activities that support bone formation, lipid metabolism, liver function, brain function and prostate gland growth.

They offer the same chemical structure as the hormones that are naturally produced by our bodies and work with the needs of the body. Drug companies cannot patent a Bio-identical structure; therefore they create “synthetic” hormones. Bio-identical hormones are inexpensive patented hormones that from $40 to $50 per month.
