Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy helps to rebalance powerful chemicals in your body called hormones. These chemicals regulate numerous bodily functions, including growth, metabolism, and reproduction.

One of the most well-known uses of hormone therapy is for menopause in women, when their reproductive years come to an end. However, hormonal imbalances affect men as well as women, and hormone production and nutritional requirements can change at any age.

What symptoms does a hormonal imbalance cause?

Hormone imbalances can cause symptoms such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Memory loss and problems thinking clearly
  • Insomnia and poor quality sleep
  • Irritability and depression
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Mood swings
  • Dry skin
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Decreased libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Muscle aches
  • Loss of bone density
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Increased blood sugar levels
  • Constipation

Your immune system responses might slow down, and you might heal more slowly or incompletely when you suffer an injury. Often, an overall sense that you simply don't feel "right" can be a symptom of hormone imbalance.

What conditions can hormone therapy treat?

Hormone imbalances are a surprisingly common problem, causing conditions such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Cushing's disease
  • Acromegaly (gigantism)
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Hormone therapy can address these conditions and other problems caused by hormone imbalances. Recently developed treatments also help decrease the effects of aging and slow down the disease processes that take place as you get older.

What does hormone therapy involve?

The specific hormone therapy you need depends on what symptoms you're experiencing and why. For example, if you have hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland), you may need to take supplementary thyroid hormone pills every day.

If menopause or andropause (male menopause) is the problem, you might opt for a pellet implant that gradually releases estrogen (in women) or testosterone (in men) over several months.

Pain Specialists of Cincinnati's management of hormone imbalances uses a full-body medical approach using physician prescriptives and pharmaceutical grade supplements. These treatments give your body what it needs to restore balance to your system.

The supplements Pain Specialists of Cincinnati uses are purer, without fillers or additives, and aren't available through retail stores.
