Through an at-home blood test and virtual consultation your doctor can identify imbalances or deficiencies in your hormones and create a tailored treatment programme to suit your needs.
Understanding your Hormones
Hormones are powerful chemical messengers within the body that regulate its day-to-day functions in both women and men. These include mental and physical wellbeing, sleep patterns and sex drive.
As we age our hormone levels naturally decrease. This results in unwanted symptoms that can lead to reduced quality of life and accelerate the aging process.
Whilst men experience decreases in certain hormones like testosterone as they age, women go through menopause which is when periods stop at around 45-55 years old. The menopause creates crashes in testosterone, progesterone and oestrogen levels which if left untreated leads to symptoms and reduction of quality of life.
In order to better understand the role that specific hormones play in your body see the icons below.
Testosterone stimulates the body to develop and maintain healthy muscles, bones and stamina. Testosterone increases libido and gives you an increased feeling of security, positivity and stability.
Low testosterone has also been associated with certain medical conditions like high cholesterol, altered blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
Oestrogen replacement can maintain vaginal and urethral function and slow the progression of osteoporosis. It can also improve sleep, decrease pain, reduce night sweats, improve libido and overall wellbeing including a more youthful appearance.
Low levels of thyroid hormones i.e., Hypothyroidism has been linked to symptoms which include fatigue, high cholesterol, feeling cold all the time and inability to lose weight. It is also linked to depression and chronic pain.
