Hormone Evaluation and Replacement Therapy
Your Leavitt Family Medicine health care providers are experts in the brain-body connection. We have board certified family medicine physicians and nurse practitioners who are experienced in hormones and the regulation of brain and body function. Some hormonal imbalances can change brain function, impair memory and cause brain fog. Other hormonal imbalances can negatively affect mood and energy levels. Your Leavitt Family Medicine health care team is trained in optimizing hormone levels to get you back to feeling like yourself again.
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is different than standard Hormone Replacement Therapy in that Bio-Identical Hormones are molecularly identical to your own hormones. Because of this, your body absorbs, metabolizes and excretes them just the same as if they were your own.
Lots of women suffer from PMS, menstrual cramping, irregular periods, headaches, hot flashes and other symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Many women also have concerns about taking synthetic hormones after menopause to prevent osteoporosis and other discomforts. Balancing hormones using Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is a good option to alleviate each of these symptoms for many women.
Although many men may not be aware, they are not immune to the effects of hormonal changes over time. Men in mid-life will often notice a lack of energy and motivation, strength, enthusiasm or sex drive that occurred steadily over time. Because of certain toxic effects, even younger men sometimes find themselves dealing with these symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Diagnosing and balancing male hormones has become a very effective way to relieve these problems.
