HRT Doctor Delray Beach

Dealing with low hormone levels can cause a number of health concerns and side effects. Both men and women can be impacted by low hormone levels, and the effects can make it difficult to participate in your favorite activities. If you're struggling with issues related to hormonal fluctuations and lower than average levels, you may be considering treatment options, such as hormone replacement therapy. Learn more about this treatment option and how it can benefit your health and wellbeing.

what is HRT?

HRT, or hormone replacement therapy, is a treatment option that helps restore the hormonal levels in male and female patients. This type of therapy can typically treat low testosterone in men and low estrogen in women. HRT involves replacing the hormones in the human body as naturally as possible, using synthetic hormones that closely match what the body naturally produces. These hormones can be applied to the skin topically via creams and patches, injected intramuscularly, taken orally, or placed just below the skin in the form of pellets.

Low hormone levels can occur as the result of a number of causes, including the natural aging process and situational experiences. When a man reaches the age of 30, his testosterone levels will begin to slowly but steadily decline by about 1% per year. As a result, men over the age of 45 most commonly deal with the side effects of low testosterone. Aging isn't the only cause of Low-T — men can also experience this health concern as the result of:

  • Short-term and long-term illnesses
  • Use of certain medications
  • Obesity or extreme weight loss
  • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus (Type 2)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Pituitary tumors or dysfunction

What Can HRT Treat for Women? ×

When used in women, HRT can treat low estrogen levels. Many women struggle with unbalanced hormones just before or during menopause, which typically begins when a woman is between the ages of 45 and 55. Some of the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance in women include:

  • Low libido and impaired sexual function
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Poor mental clarity
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Weight gain and increased body fat
  • Loss of muscle mass and body strength
  • Slower healing
  • Lower energy levels

Regardless of the cause of low hormone levels, HRT can treat this condition and alleviate the side effects.

What Can HRT Treat for Men? ×

When used for men, HRT can treat low testosterone, also known as Low-T or Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome. Low hormone levels can cause various symptoms in men, including:

  • Sleep problems
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability or mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Sexual dysfunction, including low libido and erectile dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Muscle loss
  • Increased body fat

Those who suffer from Low-T may also have an increased risk of certain diseases, including diabetes and osteoporosis. Over time, low testosterone levels can be linked to a lower mortality rate. Treating Low-T can improve the quality of life for those suffering from these unpleasant side effects, reduce their risk of disease, and even increase their life expectancy.

Benefits of HRT? ×

Undergoing HRT can bring a number of benefits for patients, including: 

  • Increased energy
  • A stronger libido
  • Improved mood
  • Lessened depression and anxiety
  • Better sexual stamina
  • Improved physical strength and muscle mass

The hormone levels in the human body are also linked to heart function and cardiovascular health. Over time, low hormone levels can increase the risk of heart disease and other concerning health problems, such as osteoporosis. Through HRT, you can reduce the risk of these health conditions while protecting your cardiovascular system. Testosterone therapy has also been linked to a reduction in the buildup of plaque inside the arteries and blood vessels, helping to lessen the risk of heart attack and stroke.
