Are you feeling irritated and tired?
Your hormones may be to blame.
It is important that your hormones are in the proper ratio; only then you will enjoy good health. However, too little or too much of it can create a hormone imbalance in your body.
HRT can offset many of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Furthermore, it can also bring back your quality of life and improve your health.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is sometimes known as HRT or Estrogen Therapy.
Hormones are potent chemicals. They travel in the bloodstream and created by the endocrine glands.
Too little or too much of any hormone can affect the normal functioning of the body.
Research proves that HRT also prevents more crippling diseases such as bone loss, heart disease. There are a few risks associated with the long-term use of hormone therapy. However, the risks depend on the dose, type of therapy, duration, etc.
At QLMC, your doctor will create a personalized treatment plan. We review it every 3-6 months to eliminate the possibility of risks.
We use the following types of HRT to administer the medication.
QLMC doctors may prescribe a combination of estrogen and progestin. This combination lessens the risk of endometrial cancer. However, if you’ve had a hysterectomy (uterus removal), you may not need progestin.
Hormones are chemical messengers that influence the way your body functions. It is common for your levels to fluctuate now and then. Especially during your period, pregnancy, or menopause. This can also be due to some medications, etc. But, it can also be due to the malfunctioning of the endocrine gland.
Hormones are essential for the normal functioning of the body. An imbalance can cause a host of symptoms, including:
Often, hormonal imbalance also leads to osteoporosis or weak bones, and heart disease.
You may not have all the symptoms mentioned above for a hormonal imbalance. It depends on the hormone involved.
