More and more people are experiencing improvement of their medical conditions through the balancing of their hormones.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 06, 2014
Dr. Sue Decotiis, a popular general practitioner / Internist of Midtown Primary Care Doctor, PC http://www.midtownprimarycaredoctor.com, announces the addition of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to her Midtown East medical practice. Unlike the majority of HRT which is prescribed, which is a mix of synthetic and animal-derived hormones, bio-identical hormones are made from plant extracts processed in a lab to mimic the molecular structure of the ones made by the body.
Dr. Decotiis states, “More and more people are experiencing improvement of their medical conditions through the balancing of their hormones.”
Hormonal imbalances can occur at any age, and occur in both men and women.
Young women frequently present with depression, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, sleep issues, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, obesity, heavy periods, painful periods, severe PMS, thyroid problems, painful or lumpy breasts, migraine headaches, infrequent periods, polycystic ovary syndrome, excessive body hair, low libido, impaired immunity, absent periods and infertility.
Mature women may present with the above symptoms and at mid life additionally present to their Internist with troublesome menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, weight gain, and mood swings.
Both younger and older men may present with fatigue, impaired immunity, low libido, infertility, sexual dysfunction, osteopenia, osteoporosis, weight gain, loss of well being or general malaise.
Testosterone is the most prescribed hormone for men. Testosterone is the most prevalent male sex hormone, and it begins to decline when a man hits age 30. By the time a man is in his mid 40’s or 50’s, his testosterone has decreased by 35%, and when he enters his 70’s, he only has 10% of the testosterone he had in his 20’s.
Estrogen and progesterone replacement therapy is the most prescribed hormone treatment for women. Estrogen and progesterone are the primary sex hormones in women. These hormones begin to decline in the time leading up to menopause, known as peri-menopause. Peri-menopause can last from 4-6 years. However, many women benefit from the addition of testosterone therapy.
