HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY:
Your hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems embedded in your body. As we age, hormone production changes and hormonal imbalance can occur. Your endocrine system controls the production of hormones in your body which regulates not only mood and sexuality. Your endocrine system determines your risk factors for diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and thyroid disease. Hormones can also be affected by genetic predisposition and by the food we consume.
Unbalanced hormones can have a variety of side effects and symptoms. These symptoms are prevalent in both males and females. If you are experiencing the following symptoms you may be deficient in the number of hormones you produce:
- Fatigue or depression-like symptoms
- Sexual dysfunction/Decreased libido
- Increased hair loss
- Weight gain
- Loss of muscle mass
HOW IT WORKS:
After an initial consultation and lab tests, our providers will address any underlying conditions and recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your results. Follow-up visits are then scheduled regularly to monitor the levels of your hormones, optimize your treatment, and maximize wellness. At ZENITH, we offer 2 types of hormone replacement therapy to ensure your levels get back to normal.
Intramuscular injections are done every 2 weeks in the buttocks region, alternating each side on subsequent visits.
2-BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE PELLETS:
Hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and are implanted under the skin by the professional. These pellets contain crystallized hormones to deliver a steady, low dose to the individual for up to 6 months at a time. The process is fast and simple. The hormones start to work 7-10 days after their insertion.
