FAQs About Hormone Replacement
As we age, it is perfectly normal for women and men alike to notice natural changes in their everyday lives. Many can be attributed to hormone levels lowering, causing metabolism to slow and energy levels to deplete. Luckily, The Fountain Clinic just outside of Cleveland, OH can help you feel like your younger self again using a treatment called hormone replacement therapy.
What is hormone replacement therapy?
To understand hormone replacement therapy, picture the hormones as messengers, sent through the bloodstream to stimulate organ tissues as they are needed. As we age, the number of these messengers tends to decrease, along with energy levels. Hormone replacement therapy uses bio-identical hormones, exactly the same in molecular makeup as the hormones our own bodies produce, to give you the boost you need to feel great.
Who is a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy?
Age plays a large factor in candidacy for hormone replacement therapy, as it is most effective once hormone levels are decreased significantly during middle age. Women who have had a hysterectomy and people who have experienced certain types of cancers or clotting disorders are not good candidates to receive this therapy.
What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?
