HRT For Women

Hormone Replacement for Women.

 Hormonal imbalances are not limited to pre-menopause and menopause. Women in mid to late 30’s may start experiencing physical and emotional changes as well: weight gain, PMS, mood swings, decreased libido. And the symptoms that may be connected to hormonal imbalance can be controlled safely, and effectively.

During the aging process our hormonal levels decrease, which may lead to unwanted symptoms such as:

  • Moodiness
  • Irritability
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Foggy memory
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty to concentrate…etc.

Modern medicine provides us with the opportunity to replace natural hormones that are lost as we age. HRT is helping women to increase life expectancy, and improve physical and emotional quality of their everyday experiences.

Hormone replacement can be administered via injections, creams, gels, sublingual tablets and patches. Injections, creams, gels, sublingual tablets and patches can be used daily or weekly. Your doctor and you will decide what best fits your lifestyle.

Growth Hormone for Women.

Low levels of human growth hormone can be the reason for wrinkles, saggy and flabby skin, low sex drive, trouble sleeping, thinning hair, loss of muscle, weight gain. Human growth hormone is a crucial component for maintaining your body looking and feeling it’s best regardless of your age. And as you get older, your body starts producing less and less of HGH resulting in less toned, less perky look.

You may also notice that you have less energy and gain weight faster, that it’s harder to concentrate for longer periods of time, and you toss and turn through the night. If your HGH levels are low you could be experiencing low sex drive, fatigue and mood swings, irritability. These are very common for pre-menopausal and menopausal women and can significantly impact quality of their life.

You may try battling those symptoms by altering your diet or spending more time exercising each week. But to completely fix the problem, exercise and healthy life style might not be sufficient. You may need to think about starting HGH replacement therapy to help you maximize production of human growth hormone. Even though HGH replacement therapy does require prescription and a medical provider to oversee the treatment, the side effects for most women are minimal to none.

Sermorelin vs. Human Growth Hormone.

 Sermorelin is a part of HGH therapy program. But, unlike human growth hormone replacement therapy, Sermorelin naturally stimulates production of HGH in your body. It provides the benefits of HGH without giving an actual hormone, making Sermorelin safer for patients.

Unlike Sermorelin, HGH may accumulate in the body, increasing levels of externally injected hormone for some time, then drop the levels down unexpectedly. Because of this patients may stop experiencing the effects of HGH abruptly. And to produce the original effect, it might require more and more medication. With Sermorelin your body self-regulates the hormonal levels. And when the levels get to high, the protection mechanism of the organism naturally brings them back down.

Currently Sermorelin can be administered via subcutaneous injections only, and is much more cost-effective than HGH. Not only is the price of Sermorelin much lower than that of HGH, but also a vial of Sermorelin provides more daily doses than one vial of human growth hormone.

It will be you and your medical provider, at Nu Image MD, to decide, which treatment best fits your needs and lifestyle.

 Thyroid Disorder in Women.

 More women suffer from thyroid disorders then men. The most common thyroid disorders are associated with hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is when you thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. Hyperthyroidism, accordingly, is when it produces insufficient amount of the hormone.

Hypothyroidism is the most common thyroid disorder and it slows down your metabolism. An unexplained weight gain is the most common symptom of a thyroid disorder. Other symptoms associated with the hypothyroidism are, but not limited to:

  • Low sex drive
  • Brittle nails and dry skin
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Insomnia
  • Changes of body temperature
  • Constipation
  • Hair loss
  • Brain fog

Thyroid disorders can significantly influence your energy level and mood. Hypothyroidism may make you feel drained, lazy and depressed. Because thyroid disorders may cause irregular menstrual cycle, the symptoms are often mistaken for menopause. A simple blood test will help to determine the true reason.

Getting the right treatment is crucial to feel your best and to prevent serious health complications. At Nu Image MD we will design a personalized prescription, which will be then compounded by our pharmacist.

Treatment for hypothyroidism is supplementing the thyroid hormone that your body naturally needs. If diagnosed and treated early, thyroid hormone replacement is a safe and effective way to relieve symptoms and avoid complications.

Testosterone Therapy for Women.

 Testosterone is a “male” hormone, but woman’s ovaries and adrenal glands also produce it in small amounts. Woman’s testosterone levels are usually highest around age 20, then they start to decline. During early reproductive years women produce 10 times more testosterone than estrogen, and many experts now believe that it’s the loss of testosterone and not estrogen in women that may lead to:

  • Low sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Mood Swings
  • Foggy memory
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Lack of energy
  • Decreased muscle tone

Balanced levels of testosterone are equally important for physical and mental health in both men and women. Women consistently have low testosterone levels, and it may start as early as their mid-30s. Of course, not all women will go through broad spectrum of symptoms, like low libido, fatigue, irritability, difficulty concentrating and weight gain. But for those who do, bio-identical testosterone has proven to be quite effective and safe.

To find out wether your testosterone levels are of, you will need to do blood test. Based on that our medical provider will determine if you are a candidate for the testosterone replacement therapy, and will customized a prescription according to your needs.
